Downturned Eyes And Cheeks Backstage at Marc Jacobs

Economic downturns are downright depressing, but downturned cheeks and eyes, when created by the genius Francois Nars can be glamourous, if a bit drama-mask-inspired melancholic. NARS created the look for the Marc Jacobs 2011 runway show based on a blushed cheeks and defined upper eyes trend. To find out about the inspiration and look, read after the jump.

Inspiration and look:  Said Francois, “The look started with a picture that Marc had of Christy Turlington with really fresh skin and rosy cheeks,” said François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics. So Ted Gibson wasn’t the only one this season with an inTurlitation! “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.”
