She’s Got Daphne Guinness Eyes


How do you follow up a sixties-inspired summer campaign starring a very bright and very blonde Amber Valletta? If you’re François Nars, you mastermind an “old-Hollywood meets futuristic” collection image starring Daphne Guinness. The makeup artist cast the haute couture-loving heiress as the face of his newly launched fall makeup look, even going as far as to name an eye shadow for her. Daphne, a pure purple pigment, happens to be our favorite feature of the nine-piece range. Other highlights include Palladium, a super-fun sparkling turquoise soft-touch eye shadow pencil; Rouge Basque, a satin-finish lipstick that gives the illusion of wine-stained lips (in a good way); and Strawberry Fields, a totally gorgeous shade of deep pink, opaque gloss. If you’re wondering how to get Guinness’ alabaster complexion, a good helping of NARS Sheer foundation in Siberia, its Loose Powder in Snow, and some serious sun-hat diligence should do the trick.
