GET THE LOOK (Spring 2011 Fashion Week Edition): Marc Jacobs

Alright, Glamazons. This is the one makeup look that made my heart stand still for about 2.5 seconds after first eyeing it. (Last season, the same thing happened after eyeing the beauty look from Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. show. It also didn't help that she was standing right next to me while chatting with her hairstylist Danilo. Talk about some major swoonage!)
But, back to Marc Jacobs. So (as you know from Coutura's previous post) the clothes from the Spring 2011 were all about the 1970's.
Once again, Marc teamed up with Francois Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS cosmetics (that's him above working backstage) to create the makeup look and Guido Palau from Redken to create the hair.
Inspired by Anjelica Houston circa 1970, Nars said that he wanted all of the models (60 to be exact) look "iconic with a modern approach."
"Marc had images of what he wanted the makeup to look like - mimicking the colors of the clothing but not matching exactly."
Nars painted around the eyes with this gorgeous glossy shade of deep green, added a tinge of pink to the cheeks (using 'Orgasm' of course) and rounded out the look with a matte lip color.
Here are the products that he used:

-NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (new for Spring 2011; for now, try a light application of the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation)
-NARS Night Porter Eyeshadow
-NARS Noveau Monde Duo Eyeshadow (new for Spring 2011; for now, try the olive side of the Earth Angel Duo Eyeshadow)
-NARS Celebrate Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (new for Spring 2011; for now, the the green side of Rated R Duo Eyeshadow)
-NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara
-NARS Volga Pure Matte Lipstick
-NARS African Queen Lip Liner Pencil
-NARS Mambo Eyeliner Pencil

And did I mention that each of the models' eyebrows were bleached?! I did think that was a little bit extreme until I saw the finished look. After that, it made perfect sense!
For the hair, Palau created four different styles for the show: a finger curl; a graduated bob; a thick wave; and one that appeared to be a bunch of frizz with a side part. Each hairstyle style was inspired by the 1930's.
Check out the looks below and let us know what you think of it. Me? I plan on rocking that sexy, smokey hunter green eye like right now! (It's definitely giving me life.) The hair? While I appreciate the look of it, I don't think it's a style that I'd personally wear myself. (Although I do think the second look is pretty cute!)
