FASHION WEEK: NARS Cosmetics & Fekkai for Marchesa

SHOW: Marchesa

HAIR: Renato Campora for Fekkai
MAKEUP: Talia Shobrook for NARS Cosmetics
MODEL: Danni Li for Elite

BEAUTY BOTTOM-LINE: Super sleek buns paired with soft skin and whimsical lashes

THE LOOK: The inspiration behind Marchesa's collection came from Madame Butterfly. "I wanted to capture the real look of Japan," said designer Georgina Chapman.

While the hair was sharp, the barely there makeup was super soft; allowing the clothes to take center stage.

Talia started by mixing matte foundation with the NEW Orgasm Illuminator (a liquid formula launching in spring) and blended it all over the face. Concealer was used under the eyes and to cover any redness. With her fingers, Talia applied a purple-pink cream blush to the cheekbones and then contoured with Nepal Single Eyeshadow to make the look more three-dimensional. She also cleverly created false feathered lashes from the feathers Georgina Chapman used on her designs. (see pic at right)
