Kicking off Mercedes-Benz Fashion week, I was able to go backstage of Creatures of the Wind at Milk Studios to get a closer look at all the Nars products being used for the show! Nars Director of Global Artistry, James Boehmer, schooled us on the colors and techniques used for the show. Boehmer said the inspiration for the theme came from a “Japanese Godzilla movie”, which he further explained to be an idea of “a monstrous beauty”.
Boehmer explained how the products he used created a simple look that was “not too made up and not too heavy”, because of the emphasis they wanted on the hair and clothes. For him, the look was all about illumination, balance, and softness. As Boehmer demonstrated on a model, he explained the Nars products and colors he used.
-Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
-Nars Lipstick in “Fire Down Below”, applied just in the center of the lips
-Nars Mascara on top and bottom lashes
-Nars smudge-proof eyeshadow base
-Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Damned”, applied on the eyelids
For hair, the models were all styled with Keratase products for a straight look with an origami inspiration. All models had pin straight hair, prepped with hairspray and a flat iron.
For nails, models wore Essie’s “Topless and Barefoot”, a solid rosy beige sealed with their “Matte About You ” as a top coat.
What do you think of this Creatures of the Wind look?
