Beauty Breakdown; "3.1 Phillip Lim SS11"
3.1 Phillip Lim is one of the more avante garde design collections for men, that are actually kind of wearable! Lim's lines are always very clean but have a fresh look about them that are always of the current fashion sense. Layers of fabrics and textures that inspire "a sense of madness" but are never intimidating and maintain a polished, classic style.
To coincide with the eccentricity of the collection this season, the makeup design for 3.1 was created by artist Francelle Daly for Nars Cosmetics.
"They are like school boys – preppy and athletic but post-game they’re heading to dinner. The key point is the beautiful skin and the rosy glow of the cheeks."
Standard male grooming is essential for the runway and includes many products that are easily translatable to the everyday gentlemen. To keep this look undercover, Francelle utilized key items and a light hand when applying to models faces.
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer will see it's release to stores worldwide in February 2011, but offers skin a hydrated glow and the slightest bit of coverage for the polished sportsman.
NARS Concealer comes in stick form and offers medium-full coverage that is easily sheered down for reducing darkness under the eyes or masking the errant blemish.
NARS Cream Blush in Lokoum has a slight coral tone to it's rosy facade and a hint of shimmer to mimic the dewiness of a quick sprint down the field.
