Fashion icon, Daphne Guinness, the lady with the diamonds in her hair at the latest Armani Prive couture show in Paris (6th July 2010) and she was only in the audience, is the muse for the latest Francois Nars make-up creations for Autumn 2010. Nars has always been inspired by larger than life iconic beauties and none more so than the style goddess that is Ms Guinness. He describes her as “sexy, sultry, daring and decadent” and of course, she has an income, refinement and taste unmatched. (A close friend of the late Isabella Blow, Daphne purchased Isabella’s entire private collection from Christie’s to protect and save her ‘essence’).

It’s no surprise that Daphne inspires many creatives and Nars is just one of them. Creating a glamorous futuristic feel, Nars created an ultra sophisticated primed skin with line erasing Skin Smoothing face prep on top of Daphne’s already impeccable porcelain skin, followed by a base of Siberia Sheer Matt Foundation and a light application of Snow loose powder.

To create dramatic yet elegant eyes, a coat of Smudge Proof Eyeshadow base was applied followed by a wash of Daphne single eyeshadow. Colour and intensity was built along the outer eye. For brightness in the inner eye, Mangrove single eyeshadow was added and the top and bottom lashes lined with Nuits Blanche Eyeliner Stylo. Brows were defined with Ipanema eyebrow pencil. Lashings of Volumizing mascara was added to increase the dramatic look. The piece de resistance is the lip emphasis. Daphne’s lips were stained with Rouge Basque lipstick and highlighted with Scandal lip gloss for additional shine.

What we are left with is Daphne in essence; a whirl of alabaster skin, hypnotic violet eyes, dazzling diamonds and Clara Bow lips. Well done Monsieur Nars.
