Wanna Wear A Sexy Red Lip For Your Valentine’s Kiss Tonight? You’re Totally On Trend With Fashion Week…How To Get The Nars Look From The Thakoon Show!

Thinking about wearing a dramatic red lip for your Valentine’s kiss tonight? Well you are right on trend with fashion week…
When KDH was a fashion editor at Conde Nast I used to love attending all of the shows in New York, Milan, and Paris each season. We all complained about how hectic the schedule was, but of course couldn’t wait to see our favorite shows [my favs? Versace, Galliano, Chanel and Dior].  Although I am a million miles away in Abu Dhabi right now, I love popping on line to see pix from the shows and reading emails from my fashion friends with hot-off-the-runway scoop~ like gorgeous Giselle showing up unexpectedly to close the Alexander Wang show [which was a great deflective PR move after the whole Super Bowl fiasco].
My NARS pals shared these backstage details on the look they created for the Thakoon runway show [pictured above], so I thought you might like to check out some tips and products you need to pull your Valentine’s Day date night!
Here’s the scoop:
SHOW: Thakoon
LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics
TREND: Bold lips
DESIGNER INSPIRATION: “The collection is a romantic cliché of something old New York – Upper East Side in the 1980s..but with a quirky twist,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “It’s reminiscent of the past but still feels modern.”
LOOK: “Thakoon wanted to focus on the lip this season,” said NARS makeup artist Diane Kendal. “It’s a fuschia pink, which is not an obvious color for a bold lip. We wanted to play with color, and it ends up making the whole look so interesting.”
