How-to: The bronzey skin at Rodarte F/W ’12

Rodarte - Fall 2012 makeup

The look:

Windblown, bronzed skin. “The look is dusty and windblown; bronzed, but not in too glam of a way. The skin is contoured with a strong lip.”—James Kaliardos for NARS.

The inspiration:

“We were inspired by Australia for this collection. We wanted to reference Aboriginals, the outback and the Dust Bowl, along with a Victorian reference, and bring them together in a rugged way.”—Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

The how-to:


  • NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
  • NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna
  • NARS Blush in Madly


  • NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Vent Glacé
  • NARS Blush in Gaiety (on the outer corners of the eyes)
  • NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte
  • NARS Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara


  • NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero

Yikes. The bronzer application is scary enough, but then with the eyeshadow it looks like she has pinkeye.
