NARS Releases First Look At Guy Bourdin Collection

After the success of last year's Andy Warhol collaboration, it's only natural that NARS would team up with another influential artist for a limited-edition collection of what constitutes as makeup porn. As WWD reports today, that artist would be Guy Bourdin. Makes total sense — Nars credits Bourdin as being one of the biggest influences behind his cult-favorite makeup line, even naming a bright orange blush, Exhibit A, after a book of his photographs.
Says the makeup artist about the photographer: "From the lighting and the makeup, to the abstract backgrounds and poses [in his photographs], Guy built up his own world. There is a certain decadence in Guy’s work that really struck a chord with me.” Nars has recreated that decadence with reformulated cosmetics — the "Cinematic Eyeshadow' and "Cinematic Lipstick" will feature highly-pigmented color payoffs and shiny, dramatic finishes.
