The girls on the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 runway show were sporting a surprisingly minimal look; fresh but of course with a cheeky twist. It’s a totally wearable look with defined cheekbones, blushed cheeks and a defined upper lashline. The blush is brushed downwards, a mirror effect to how it would normally be. I’d definitely recreate this for daytime.
Behind the look is the legendary Francois Nars, founder and creative director of Nars Cosmetics. His inspiration was an an old photo of a fresh faced Christy Turlington.
“Marc wanted ‘icy cold cheeks’ and so the blush is drawn down in such a way that’s unusual…unusual, but decadent. Like a Renaissance painting.”
