It was all about a bit of bed head and sexy, smudgy eyes on the Marc Jacobs runway. The designer wanted models to have a dirty look as if the hair and makeup had been slept in.

“This look is what you’d see on a girl from the East Village or St. Germain des Pres--an existentialist with a modern twist,” said Nars Cosmetics founder and Creative Director François Nars in a news release.


To get the girls’ makeup looking accurately grungy, Nars used the following steps, finishing with a shade of sheer-peach lipstick called Barbarella that Jacobs specifically requested be applied to models’ pouts.


• Sheer Glow Foundation

• Enchanted Blush (NEW for summer 2010)


• D. Gorgeous Single Eye shadow (NEW for Spring 2010)

• Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil

• Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo

• Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara


• Barbarella Lipstick
