NARS - Soft & Smoky at Thakoon

The clothes at the Fall 2009 Thakoon fashion show were a mix of fanciful and sophisticated, words that also perfectly describe the hair and makeup backstage.

Nars makeup artist Diane Kendal created a look "that felt of ease but that also was a little bit rock 'n roll." Eyes were done using a reddish-brown pencil all around that was then smudged out. Black liner was applied close to the upper and lower lashline and no mascara was used. Brows were dark and thick and skin was made dewy with a light foundation and a coral powder blush on the apples of cheeks. Kendal wanted to keep the focus on the eyes, so lips were muted with lip balm and concealer.

Topping off the look were dreamy and slightly disheveled asymmetric buns. They had a deep, slicked-over side part and a flurry of baby's breath frizzies surrounding the actual bun in back.
