Lea Michele’s Makeup At The 2010 Emmy Awards by NARS! The Bling & Diamonds: Lorraine Schwartz. Brown and White Diamond Mesh Necklace. Stacked Brown and White Diamond Bracelets. Brown Diamond Stud Earrings. Brown and White Diamond Ring.
The Makeup Look & Inspiration: “My inspiration was the era of the 60’s. I thought of Raquel Welch and Bridget Bardot: the winged eye, the nude lip. The dress is so classic, so we wanted to be adventurous with her eyes– giving a dash of color with the new Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil – and kept the lip nude with Tashkent Pure Matte!”–Melanie Inglessis for NARS Cosmetics

Celebrity Inspired Makeup. NARS Q&A With Daphne Guinness!
When it comes to describing fashionista Daphne Guinness, the passion of Founder & Creative Director François Nars knows no boundaries. And when it came to designing and photographing this futuristic makeup look for Fall 2010, François created a look worthy of his leading lady. It was only fitting that Nars chose to name an eyeshadow after his muse, Daphne, a color that is as bold and beautiful as the woman for whom it was named. To magnify the arresting impact of the magnificent Ms. Guinness, Nars designed and photographed her in a kaleidoscope of mirrors, creating a virtual funhouse of reflective images.

The Makeup Look & Inspiration: “This look has many layers,” said Lisa Butler for NARS Cosmetics. “The eyes are edgy while the skin was kept healthy and glowing. The lips are a soft, sheer pink for the elegant punk-rock princess style that Phillip was looking for.”

The Makeup Look & Inspiration: “This look is what you would see on a girl from the East Village or St. Germain des Pres-an existentialist with a modern twist,” said François Nars (Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics) whose application technique included using his fingers to achieve the faded effect. “These girls are sexy and cool. Their makeup looks dirty and worn out as if it has been on all night but still translates beautifully on the runway.”
Backstage Makeup: Go backstage with NARS Cosmetics and witness the excitement of putting together a show at Fashion Week. Interviews with designers, including Phillip Lim and Thakoon Panichgul, bring to life the decadence and creativity reflected in the makeup looks created by lead artists.
