Backstage Beauty: Phillip Lim’s Dandy-Lions

Nars and PHYTO Hair Care teamed up backstage at Phillip Lim to create a “modern female dandy”—a look that combines elegance and strength.

Lisa Butler for NARS starts with using the new spring 2011 NARS Sheer Glow Foundation to give a wash of color on the face. She did lots of sculpting on the cheeks with different tones of the foundation. On the lips, she used Spring 2011 NARS Madere Pure Matte Lipstick and Hoolywoodland soft touch shadow pencil on the eyes.


LIsa wanted a sheer, clean look; so the key here is tailoring the makeup choices to the skin tone.




Odile Gilbert, Lead Stylist for PHYTO created a chignon on the back of the head. She wanted to keep the look simple, so she created a side part in the front and left some hair out loose in front. She wanted the models to look like they had casual but pretty, day-off hair. Odile used PHYTO ‘PhytoVolume’ Actif Volumizer Spray and PHYTO 7 Daily Hydrating Cream in the hair to achieve this look.
