NARS took the reigns for the first time at Alexander Wang’s Spring/Summer 2013 show, creating a look makeup artist Diane Kendal described as "minimal". "It had to be," she told me backstage, "because the collection this season is full of minimal tones, so we wanted to do the same thing for the face and focused on matte and flawless skin." Kendal also explained how she gave the brows (many of which were bleached on the blonde girls) a little umphf by using NARS Bali eye shadow to them in so they look "square-ish and boyish." The models also had an intriguing amount of highlighter swept across their cheekbones and noses – it was all about light and shadow today. As for that sci-fi hot-robot stripe down the middle of the pony tail part — it’s made out of glow in the dark tape. Time to buy shares in 3M, me thinks.
