Green-eyed beauties on the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway

February 17, 2011 |  4:32 pm



To complement the strong and somewhat athletic collection Phillip Lim sent down his fall 2011 runway, makeup artist Lisa Butler was inspired to pop model’s eyes with a wash of green color.

“Phillip had an image of a black swan in a green lake as part of his inspiration board -- and I wanted to mimic that idea of color surrounding something black, an unexpected element of surprise,” said Butler,  who used only Nars Cosmetics. “The skin was kept clean, with a muted lip, and then there were beautiful layers of green and blue on, and around the eyes." 

Butler barely touched skin with anything but The Concealer from Nars.

Focusing on the eyes, she applied Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliners in shades Rue de Rivoli and Abbey Road (which are new for fall 2011), Cap Ferrat Trio Eyeshadow (new for summer 2011), and Delphes Trio Eyeshadow (new for fall 2011).

Lips were colored with Nars Pago Pago Lipstick (new for fall 2011).
