3 Wearable and Totally Worthy of Stealing #NYFW Beauty Looks From NARS

Beauty / February 19, 2015

NARS is has always been a backstage Fashion Week heavyweight, and this year was no exception. Models walking the Fall/Winter runway for Rachel Comey, Tanya Taylor, Creatures of the Wind and more were treated to clean, barely-there beauty looks, all with skin as the primary focus.

It’s the best kind of runway beauty — all of these looks can be worn in real life! Here are three of our favorites, and what you need to recreate them.

RACHEL COMEY

It’s no wonder lead makeup artist Maud Laceppe cites moisturizer as the key to great makeup. For Rachel Comey, she created glowing, dewy faces with “almost wet” skin that looked healthy, fresh, and effortless.

Get the Look

Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
Soft Velvet Loose Powder
The Multiple in Copacabana (apply to both eyes and cheeks using your fingertips)
Contour Blush (apply to both eyes and cheeks with a fluffy blush brush)
-Blush in Tribulation (Available Fall 2015, substitute with Nico)
-Velvet Shadow Stick in Reykjavik (Available Fall 2015, substitute with Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Madison Avenue)
-Lip Gloss in Chelsea Girls (Available Fall 2015, for now try Chihuahua)

Tip: Add a touch of lip gloss to the eyes and cheeks to enhance your dewy glow.

TANYA TAYLOR

Glowing skin was also in over at Tanya Taylor, where international lead stylist Uzo added just a hint of rose-pink hue to the lips, eyes and cheeks. Her goal? To create a look that’s “runway to the real world.” Plus, the understated, muted faces perfectly complimented the collection’s bold and graphic prints.

Get the Look

Aqua Gel Oil-Free Moisturizer
Total Replenishing Eye Cream
Pore Refining Primer
All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
Radiant Creamy Concealer
Pressed Powder
Illuminator (in Copacabana for lighter skin tones, Laguna for darker skin tones)
The Multiple (in Copacabana for lighter skin tones, South Beach for darker skin tones)
Oural Brow Gel
Shimmer Eyeshadow in Napal
-Blush in Tribulation (Available Fall 2015, substitute with Nico)
-Audacious Mascara (Available Fall 2015, substitute with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara)
Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok and Madère
Satin Lip Pencil in Biscayne Park

Tip: If you want to add a little drama to this look, it can also work with a bold red lip.

CREATURES OF THE WIND

According to NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer, this collection was inspired by “’Americana’ — a mash-up of the 1920s, 60s and 70s.” To create a complimentary makeup look, Boehmer created pale-matte faces, dark and deliberate lashes, and glossy, brushed brows. Think Studio 54-era Angelica Houston.

Get the Look

All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
Soft Velvet Loose Powder
Radiant Creamy Concealer
-Audacious Mascara (Available Fall 2015, substitute with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara)
Oural Brow Gel

Tip: Try pairing this look with a metallic mani, using Butter London’s Diamond Geezer Nail Lacquer.
