NY Fashion Week Spring 2010: NARS for Derek Lam

The Derek Lam runway show was yesterday and I am absolutely in awe of the make-up by NARS lead artist Tom Pecheux. So stunning! Think tribal-inspired eyes and doll-like lips - hello spring, I love you already!
It went perfectly with the Lam collection of clothing inspired by fantasy getaways. Recreate this look for spring easily by using NARS products (which I love!).
"I used the new Easy Lover lip gloss on just the outline of the lips to have the girls appear doll-like. It was Coney Island chic,” said Tom Pecheux.
For the face, blend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with a foundation brush into skin. Set with NARS Loose Powder, then buff skin with NARS Kabuki Artisan Boton Brush for a porcelain doll effect.

The eyes are a little trickier, but so worth the time. Using the emerald side of NARS Misfit Duo Eyeshadow and NARS Eye Shader brush, drag the shadow along the lower lash line straight across until just past the outer corner. Dust the violet side of NARS Jolie Poupee Duo Eyeshadow on the eyelids; use the darker side in the crease and fade into the temple joining the emerald green from Misfit. Highlight the inner corners of the eyes with NARS Bains Douche Glitter Pencil (NEW for Spring 2010), making the connection between the purple and green. After curling lashes with NARS Eyelash Curler, apply three coats of NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Finally, dust the burnt orange side of NARS Mediteranee Duo Eyeshadow along the brow bone. Voila!

Now on to the gorgeous lips! Fill in the lips lightly with NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, dotting the lips with your fingers to blend it in. Outline them with NARS Easy Lover Lip Gloss (NEW for Spring 2010) to create a plush-looking, glassy pout.

Curious about the cheeks? Apply NARS Nico Blush to give a subtle hint of highlighting. Dust Desire Blush in round, circular movements onto the apples of the cheeks. Last, finish with NARS Taj Mahal Blush, blending it in with the pink cheeks and up towards the temples.
