Backstage Beauty: NARS & Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2011

Backstage Beauty: Marc Jacobs & NARS

Between the groundhog proclaiming that spring will come early this year and my downright annoyance with the snow it’s time to get started on primping my makeup regimen with some of Spring’s hottest beauty trends. Marc Jacobs and François Nars paired up for an inspired partnership in the Summer Spring 2011 show, and in the event that you were wondering what made their intense dark shadowing so shiny (err… wet looking), Vaseline was the key ingredient to the NARS makeup palette at the Marc Jacobs SS2011 shows. And while the use of Vaseline on their eyelids makes me a little nostalgic for the days in my childhood when my mother confiscated my eyeshadow, this NARS palette is all grown up.

The Ingredients:

[1] Pure Matte Lipstick, in Volga

[2] Duo Eyeshadow, in Nouveau Monde

[3] Soft Touch Shadow Pencil, in Celebrate
