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!

Thakoon, S/S'12

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.”
