The beauty look may have been inspired by the dark ages but one thing was apparent backstage at Rodarte, both hair and makeup were focused on shine and reflection.


“It’s modern medieval,” said James Kaliardos for Nars, who infused moisture and luminosity with NarsSkin Optimal Brightening Concentrate. He also used Nars toner and moisturizer on each of the girls, to keep skin looking healthy. To impart a wet-finish for eyes and lips, Kaliardos used Triple X Lip Gloss on both. He spread the gloss all the way into the eye brow for a “shiny, modern” look. On the face, Kaliardos spotted on Radiant Creamy Concealer — new for Spring 2013 — focusing on the center of the face, so that there would be virtually “no foundation” on the sides. Sex Appeal blush was applied to the center of the cheek, while the inner corner of the eye was given a dab of Nars Himalayas eye shadow for a “reflective spin.” Eye lashes were curled but left without mascara. “It’s about reflection and skin tone,” he said about the overall look. 
Hair was equally simple, but directional.
