How-to: Naeem Khan S/S ’12 makeup

Naeem Khan - Spring 2012 makeup

The look:

Metallic eyes. “The starting point for the makeup was the Ava Gardner-inspired eyebrow. With the bold, graphic eye, but not-so-bold lip, the makeup is reminiscent of Ursula Andress. I wanted to create contrasts between the eye and lip. The skin is very cool—there’s no warmth to it, and the eyes are a wash of metallic silver.”—James Boehmer, director of global artistry for NARS.

The inspiration:

“I was very much inspired by Spain—its culture, its heritage and the colours and style. The woman I’m designing for is glamorous but vibrant. She’s sexy and confident.”—designer Naeem Khan.
