LOOK: “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 Lisa Butler for NARS Cosmetics.  “The skin is kept clean, with a muted lip and then there are beautiful layers of green and blue on, and around the eyes." 
Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:
  • Concealer (NEW for Fall 2011; for now, try the existing Concealer)
