NYFW F/W 2011 Beauty: NARS Trend Report: Thakoon

NARS created the look for the Thakoon Fall 2011 runway show.

SHOW: Thakoon

LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Tribal eyes and muted lips

INSPIRATION: “The collection draws inspiration from the opulence of the Rococo period and the style of the Masai tribe in Africa,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “There are a lot of primary colors, but also gorgeous marabou feathers, so we wanted to create a balance to everything to ensure it was really believable. We’ve always done fresh, pretty, natural, and it was time for a strong makeup look.”

LOOK: “With Thakoon’s references to this idea of tribal opulence, I felt that if we were going to do “color” it would have to be focused on the eye with one central color theme, and nothing else. There was a lot of youth in the group of models, so we wanted to keep the look very fresh. Red was a natural choice, complimenting the use of color throughout the collection”

Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:



  • Concealer (NEWLY formulated for Fall 2011; for now, try the existing Concealer)
All products, except where noted, are available at
