no makeup makeup” look that swarmed NYFW for Spring 2015 to the next level, Marc Jacobs commissioned his go-to makeup artist François Nars to massage moisturizer into the models’ skin. That’s it. No
foundation. No concealer. No powder. Zero. Nada. Nothing on the skin except moisturizing lotion. “It took me about 5 minutes,” laughed Francois Nars before the show, understandably looking more relaxed and chilled out than any other makeup pro who leads backstage at fashion week. “There is absolutely no makeup. Marc is always pretty extreme, so this no makeup makes a huge statement. And I don’t do middle of the road either.” The “makeup” team just worked
NARS Skin Luminous Moisture Cream and Total replenishing Eye Cream into the skin and gave each model a quick facial massage, before they got fitted with jet-black, Ramones-inspired wigs. Canadian supe Heather Marks said, “I love it! It’s so nice to not have anything on my face.” As the gaggle of international beauty editors blinked like crazy, trying to think of questions to ask a makeup artist who has applied ZERO makeup, Mr. Nars just smiled.
