Honor Debuts A Cool-Girl Look, Literally

Honor, the debut collection by Giovanna Randall, was inspired by Grace Kelly and Catherine Deneuve — along with a hint of Cyndi Lauper. No wonder, then, that NARS makeup artist James Boehmer went for the ultimate icy-girl look. "Giovanna wanted the girls to feel individual," Boehmer said of the concept. "We wanted the makeup not to look sunny and healthy, but a little cold."

To create this look, Boehmer kept models' faces nearly nude. No mascara or eyeliner was used; instead, he applied NARS eye shadow in Ashes to Ashes for a soft but stormy gray-violet eye. ("It's my hands-down favorite eye shadow," he said. "It's between a dark and a light, and it looks good on everyone." Cheeks were softly contoured with powder blush in Zen, with a little bit of Bombshell eye shadow applied with a blush brush to brighten the cheeks without adding color. To finish the look, Boehmer applied Pure Matte lip color in a new-for-spring chalky pink shade, Madere. The end result, according to him: "The models look polished, but they're not taking away from the clothes."

I bet you're being too hard on yourself! But I also think, yes, it helps that these models are teenagers. I used to be able to get barely any sleep and look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Now, after four hours of sleep last night, I look like the Cryptkeeper.

I guess it also heavily depends on your whole facial features in order to pull off this look. I just tried to re-create this for today and ended up looking tired and old. I think the whole "only eye shadow, no mascara" thing really didn't work.
