NARS Makeup Artist Diane Kendel created this look for Thakoon at New York Fall Fashion Week 2011. Thakoon’s inspirations were the spice markets in India, full on colourful!
According to Diane Kendel:
“Because the collection is so colourful, I wanted to focus on a classic, strong brow. I kept the face natural, with a little pink in the cheek for healthy colour. On the eyes, I focus on the contouring to show strength and attitude, a cowboy attitude that is.”

The prequel to New York Fashion Week is here and it starts tomorrow. Not only is it in NYC, but it has expanded to cities across the U.S. and around the world. On September 8th, the fashion and beauty world is going to go mad with lots of limited edition items, parties, special FNO-exclusive events and general revalry!
I am just planning my list of places to hit (shame, I know!), and the FNO website has a pretty cool feature where you can map out your route through the streets of New York.
For more information, including events in places outside of the U.S., check out the FNO website, or follow the hastag #FNO on twitter. Oh, they also have apps for iPhone and Android phones.
A few of the events:
