How-to: Thakoon S/S ’12 makeup

Thakoon - Spring 2012 makeup

The look:

Strong brows and luminous skin.

The inspiration:

“It’s the ideal of the iconic American cowboy gone multicultural. The color story came from India, inspired by the spice market—but with a cowboy flair.”—designer Thakoon Panichgul.

The how-to:

“Because the collection is so colorful, I wanted to focus on a classic, strong brow. I kept the face natural, with a little pink on the cheek for healthy color. On the eyes, I focused on contouring to show strength and attitude, a cowboy attitude that is.”—makeup artist Diane Kendal for NARS.
