Song: “Bust This Bust That” by Professor Kliq
There’s only one show that Nars creative director François Nars cares to participate in backstage: Marc Jacobs. This season’s modern-day Edie face was the we have to do it! creative kernel for our story. Gone were the floral-lip brights of other shows. Don’t even ask about bronzer: “I’m not the kind of makeup artist who works for a designer who asks for warm, suntanned skin because it’s summer,” says Nars of the pale backdrop to those standout brows. The result was zebra-like in contrast yet contemporary cool. Nars did away with false lashes, blush and lipstick. Instead, he layered volumizing mascara over a lengthening formula, smudged a floating black line in the lid crease, and pushed the limit on those excellent-eccentric brows with dark matte powders. The trickle-down trick? One ’60s idea at a time, Edie-ettes.
