Black-Tie Makeup Goes Blue at Thakoon

Makeup for a black tie event can start to feel stale (err smokey). Taking inspiration from the Thakoon Fall/Winter 2013 runway show at New New York Fashion Week, though, has us thinking starry night. And we’re glittered for it. (If one can “be glittered.”)

Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics created the Thakoon Fall/Winter 2013 runway show.

“Thakoon’s winter collection is inspired by summer,” said Kendal. “We wanted to reflect that in the makeup, so we did a very dark midnight blue shadow, but to get that summer feel we added glitter on top. It created the perfect juxtaposition between winter and summer.”
