Marc Jacobs Fall 2016: Punk In-Your-Face Make-up

Marc Jacobs Punk inspired Beauty

Marc Jacobs is a master at breaking the rules, and the punk in your face theatrical makeup at his fall show was the perfect accompaniment to his big cape silhouettes and sweeping black gowns. Inspired by the 80s punk scene, François Nars created six gothic smokey eye looks outlined entirely in black eyeliner. The dramatic looks reminiscent of Alice Cooper, Beetle Juice and various night club performers set the mood.  It is very New York, very underground. “Some have dark eyes with very strong liner and no lips. Not much foundation, a little bit shiny and not like a commercial cosmetic look. We like to stay away from anything that’s too perfect, like foundation and lipstick.  All the eyebrows are gone because it gives you a blank canvas to work with, so you can really restructure the whole face and make the eyelids really big…it just changes the whole face,”  said Nars. This blank canvas dramatizes the artful monochromatic eyes and stark black lips, resulting in the ultimate goth beauty.

Eyes:

Pandora Duo Eyeshadow
The contrasting white shimmer highlights the difference in the black corresponding eye shadow used to create the smokey eye.

Sycorax Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow
This black shimmer eyeshadow can be applied smoothly for a sheer touch dry, or it can make a dramatic impact when applied wet.

Black Moon Velvet Eyeliner
A long-lasting eyeliner that builds with deeply pigmented black color with a velvet finish.

Las Pozas Velvet Eyeliner
A pure white velvet eyeliner that highlights the contrast with the rest of the black shadow and liner.

Minorque Kohliner
An intense matte black liner with a creamy finish to blend or smoke out.

Filbuste Velvet Shadow Stick
A convenient matte black creamy shadow in a stick that won’t drag or crease under eyeshadow.

Black Valley Eye Paint
Black eyeliner in a paint pot that glides on smoothly and stays highly pigmented for long wear.

Carpates Eyeliner Stylo
A liquid eyeliner pen with a felt tip to make precise thin lines that can be built up without smudging.

Audacious Mascara
Lengthens and amplifies lashes with a lightweight and long lasting formula for defined lashes.

Lips:

Filbuste Velvet Shadow Stick
The multidimensional shadow stick is creamy enough to use to fill in the dark black lips without smudging.

Black Moon Velvet Eyeliner
The eyeliner as lip liner can be built up to an intense black finish that Nars was aiming for in the dramatic lips.

Minorque Kohliner
Nars says, “We like to be away from anything that’s too perfect, like foundation and lipstick,” and kohl liner over lip liner gives a slightly smudged finish without looking perfect.

Triple X Lip Gloss
A moisturizing lip gloss for high shine and long lasting wear to add dimension to finish off the dark lips.

Hair:

Redken Hard Wear 16
Used to “to flatten the hair and add control and shine” after the hair was sectioned off into finger waves.

Redken Forceful 23 Hairspray
After sculpting the waves, Guido Palau used hairspray “to cement the waves” and perfect the contrast between the sleek waves and undone ends of the hair.

Nails:

Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer Nail Polish
Jin Soon applied the Marc Jacobs beauty nail color “Blaquer,” and Jin Soon stated, “Marc really likes to have it super shiny, so on top of this black color we are using a high shine top coat called Shiny,” to finish off the look. Marc also specified that, “‘Jin! Short nails, short nails!’ Because you don’t want to have dagger nails with this one, otherwise it becomes too much, so short nails and high shine will make you more sophisticated.’”
