NARS Trend Report: Autumn 2011…

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 1 - 2011

Autumn/Fall… Pavement/Sidewalk… Bonnet/Hood… Tomato… um… er.. TomAto…. whatever you wanna call it, I was going back through some emails before archiving and came across this press release that included some images from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Runway Show.

It looks like Autumn might be all about the blush.  Yes, that’s me you can hear me fist-pumping and whooping from thousands of miles away…

INSPIRATION & LOOK: “The look started with a picture that Marc had of Christy Turlington with really fresh skin and rosy cheeks,” said François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics. “Marc wanted ‘icy cold cheeks’ and so the blush is drawn down in such a way that’s unusual…unusual, but decadent. Like a Renaissance painting.”

Look at those proper Autumnal colours!  Warm reds and ambers… God, it makes me grateful it’s still only April and we have the whole Summer stretching ahead of us!

The key products used in the looks featured here are:

FACE

  • Concealer (NEW for Fall 2011; for now, try the existing Concealer £17.50)

EYES

LIPS

Interrrrestingggg…. so, it looks like we’re getting (at least) a newly formulated concealer range, duo eyeshadow (orange-based?), a new long-wear eyeliner range?  I’m speculating a little bit….

Not too sure on that blush placement… but that’s fashion for you (darling) and I love the heavy liner… oooooh, I’ll be a happy Lipglossiping if we’re all about the heavy liner this Autumn!

But in the meantime, let’s have some bloody sunshine first eh?!

    FINALLY!! The mainstream has caught onto the way I apply blusher. That’s the problem with having a tubby face, you smile, apply the blusher to your cheeks..de-smile your chops and the blusher is practically on your jawline.

    Good going NARS!

    OMG, it’s been spring for how long? Here in NYC? One warm day. And it was like, two weeks ago. xP

  3. Thank GOD for liner-centric looks, I’m far too lazy/uncreative in the morning to come up with new eyeshadow combinations.

    Gorgeous! Not for everyday people but definitely for a shoot or runway. The man’s a genius! Thanks charlotte for this! Love! x

  5. It looks like someone has tried to put on make-up going over speed bumps. xxxx

    Low blush makes it look like they have rosea.

  7. Jess says:

    I dont like the blush placement. It seems to give their faces an odd shape, kind of stretched out.

    There is also going to be a gorgeous trio eyeshadow named Delphes. I saw one picture of it, and it looks perfect for fall!
