Backstage beauty at fashion week can range from absolutely insane to positively beautiful. This season, it seems that naturalism is the name of the game for major designers. One cosmetic company favoured by the leaders of New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week? NARS! With cosmetics known for their incredibly quality, beautiful long-lasting qualities and sleek, sophisticated finish NARS seems the perfect beauty choice for the runways of Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Christopher Kane and Erdem. Simplistic and minimalistic manicures dominated at New York Fashion Week and fresh faced beauty looks are still a top trend heading into London’s collections. NARS backstage beauty starts now.


Marc Jacobs AW16 Select 18

What do you get when you combine rebellious punks and a desire to remain unique? The inspiration behind Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2016 runway show makeup! “There are influences of Alice Cooper with a touch of punk and the feeling of the NY Underground. We wanted to make sure all of the girls looked different, a little bit strange and dramatic, but authentic and unique to themselves.”
says François Nars, NARS Founder & Creative Director.

Alexander Wang AW16 Select 13

Alexander Wang’s New York Fashion Week runway show embodied the spirit of rebel cool. “New youth culture’s take on high fashion – everything is very individual and personal.” says Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics. To enhance the edgy soft punk look at Wang’s show makeup was muted and natural looking.

Christopher Kane AW16 Select 58

There is nothing more gorgeous than natural beauty. Effortless makeup was top of mind at Christopher Kane’s London Fashion Week runway show. Sure, model makeup looks may have been inspired by “a hoarding recluse ‎that has stepped out for the afternoon.” according to NARS makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, but the final look is still “Gorgeous and fresh-faced;” Love this.

Nothing says Fall quite like raspberry stained lips and barely there makeup. This season simple, light makeup looks have dominated the runways in both New York and London. Fresh skin is the name of th game, but don’t forget to accentuate those lips! “The skin is fresh and light juxtaposed with this Black Dahlia-inspired lip – very reminiscentof Jean Harlow and evoking the spirit of 1930’s Hollywood Boulevard.” says Val Garland for NARS Cosmetics
