Backstage Beauty: Naeem Khan Fall 2015 Runway Show


Who: James Boehmer for NARS Cosmetics

Inspiration: “Naeem is celebrating his 10th anniversary this season. He wanted the makeup to be dark, sensual and incredibly glamorous. I thought about the artwork of Tamara de Lempicka. The women depicted in her paintings still seem so modern, and I borrowed colors from her signature palette.”

Get the Look: Start off by prepping the skin with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and NARSskin Total Replenishing Eye Cream. On the face apply Sheer Glow Foundation, conceal any imperfections with the Radiant Creamy Concealer, and set the look with Soft Velvet Loose Powder. Keep brows in place with Oural Brow Gel.

On the eyes, use both Ashes to Ashes and Bali Eyeshadow . Finish off the look by lining the lips with Jungle Red Lip Liner and Mambo Eyeliner followed by filling the lip with Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil.


Who: Julie Kandalec for essie
Inspiration: To pair with the glamorous vibe of Naeem Khan’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection, Julie created a distressed gold nail look by layering shifting power and jiggle hi, jiggle low. The champagne hue perfectly complemented the embellished gowns on the runway.
Get the Look: 1. Apply ridge filling base coat to clean, filed nails 2. Next, apply two coats of shifting power and allow to dry 3. Then, apply the thinnest coat possible of jiggle hi, jiggle low 4. Finish with good to go top coat
