Nars catwalk makeup looks for AW 2011

I was bowled over by these lovely images when I saw them blown up to huge resolutions at a recent Nars event. The 5 looks are by 5 different artists, including Francois Nars himself, and each one is wholly different from the others, although all of them definitely have that starkly striking Nars je ne sais quoi

Colour me inspired!

An Art Deco inspired geometric take on the smoky eye. Lead artist: Francelle at Nars. Show: Mandy Coon.

A shimmery aqua wash of colour using the new Nars eyeshadow trio in Cap Ferrat. Lead artist: Lisa Butler. Show: Phillip Lim.

Orange powder blush applied over a base of red lipstick, apparently. The brows are deliberately whited out. Lead artist: Diane Kendal. Show: Thakoon.

Inspired by 1920s French fashion - the blush placement is apparently a reference to flappers, whose cloche hats covered most of their cheeks, so they applied their blush lower down the face. Lead artist: Francois Nars. Show: Marc Jacobs.

A punch of strong colour on the eye offsets an otherwise neutral look. Lead artist: James Boehmer. Show: Honor.
