NARS Cosmetics worked with celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali to create the makeup look for “Mad Men” actress Christina Hendricks at the Season 4 Premiere last night, July 20th, 2010. NARS’ NEW Pure Matte Lipstick was key in creating her look along with other products from NARS’ Fall 2010 Color Collection.
“Christina’s sultry Dolce & Gabbana dress inspired a softer version of the “La Dolce Vita” makeup look. We kept it modern by using Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick, which is a soft matte rose color for her lips,” says Vanessa Scali.
Christina Hendricks’ makeup look was achieved using the following NARS products:

New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2010: NARS Cosmetics created the makeup look at the Marc Jacobs AW2010 show.
INSPIRATION: “I was inspired by the film La Vie des Autres. I wanted the models to have a dirty look as if the hair and makeup had been slept in,” said designer Marc Jacobs, who specifically requested Barbarella lipstick to be used on the models’ lips.
LOOK: “This look is what you’d see on a girl from the East Village or St. Germain des Pres-an existentialist with a modern twist,” said NARS Cosmetics Founder and Creative Director François Nars 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.”

Lead Artist: Talia Shobrook for NARS Cosmetics
Trend: Long Feathered Lashes
Inspiration: The inspiration behind the collection came from Madame Butterfly. “I wanted to capture the real look of Japan, create layers and bits of origami,” said designer Georgina Chapman. The whimsical creations based in sculpted layers balanced the soft, bare faces that were accentuated with long lashes.
Look: Very simple, romantic and beautiful skin contoured with varying formulas. “We contoured the skin with matte and shimmery textures and added feathers to the eyes to provide dimension to the face,” explained lead artist Talia Shobrook. A matte face was illuminated with a bit of shimmer. Feather lashes, custom created by NARS from the feathers on the Marchesa dresses, gave excitement to an otherwise simple look.
