Organic new romanticism at 3.1 Philip Lim SS2016
It was a kind of organic new romanticism at 3.1 Philip Lim SS2016. To underscore the show’s organic vibe, Francelle Daly for Nars Cosmetics prepped the skin with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and kept it naked and natural, with just a wash of matte foundation (the forthcoming Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint) and Stick Concealer where needed. There were no highlights, no contouring, no cheeks colour at all: “The skin was organic, clean, simple, earthy and real”. Lips were kept bare with just a hint of moisture courtesy of Bianca Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment. The feeling of new romanticism, the new wave, was introduced by a vibrant pop colour drawn onto the eye in a disconnected shape via Nars Solomon Islands Eye Paint (half the girls sported black lines, Nars Black Valley Eye Paint, instead), that was matched with no mascara, naked lids and brushed brows (Oural Brow Gel). “It’s almost like a cut-out eye line, when you close your eye, there’ a negative space”. It’s a kick of colour, but with a twist.
