Diane Kendal for NARS created a beautiful make-up show for Thakoon (a Michelle-Obama fav)! Luminous skin and contoured cheeks (although it sorta helps when you’re a model to begin with, no?) fed off Thakoon’s “samurai-meets-surfer” inspiration of sharp edges and aqua blues, by the way, of which I love. Strength around the eyes and cheekbones, and monotone elsewhere. I dig it.
Apply NARS Sheer Matte Foundation to conceal imperfections.
To achieve luminosity, apply NARS Orgasm Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2010) to the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.
To contour the cheeks, apply NARS Malaysia Multiple Bronzer and blend into the cheek bones.
Highlight the cheekbones and nose with the white side of NARS Hungry Heart Blush Duo.
Apply the brown side of NARS Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow on the entire eyelid up to the brows.
Blend both NARS D. Gorgeous Single Eyeshadow (NEW for Spring 2010) as well as the light pink side of NARS Kuala Lumpur Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Spring 2010) into the crease, outer eye and up towards the brow bone.
Apply NARS Bali Single Eyeshadow to the upper and lower lash lines as well as to the crease in the eyelid, blending with the other shadows to create definition.
Dust NARS Night Snow Single Eyeshadow in the corners of the eyes.
