Photographed by FranÃ§ois Nars in New York City, the Fall 2013 campaign features German topmodel Toni Garrn in a striking image inspired by the work of two of the 1970sâ€™ most iconic photographers, Helmut Newton and Chris von Wangenheim. The German beauty, who is said to be Leonardo DiCaprio’s new girlfriend, channels the decadeâ€™s liberated and powerful feminine style.
To achieve the campaignâ€™s mesmerizing beauty look, a smooth canvas was first created by preparing skin with Pore Refining Primer. Next, Gobi Sheer Matte Foundation was warmed in the palm of the hand before being applied to the center of the face and blended outward. To blur out imperfections, Vanilla Radiant Creamy Concealer was dotted under the eye with the ring finger, and blended to a smooth finish. Using the Kabuki Botan Brush #20, Flesh Loose Powder was pressed, then rolled all over the face.
A sultry, smoky eye complemented the skinâ€™s understated matte complexion. To create the riveting look, Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base was first used to prep the eyelid, blending with the fingertip to a fresh finish. Using Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil, top and bottom lashes were thickly lined, then softened with Smudge Brush #15. Next, Calabria Soft Touch Shadow Pencil was traced over Black Moon to create a half-moon shape, extending the color all the way up to the bridge of the eye.
Kamchatka Single Eyeshadow instantly upped the drama when swept across the entire lid with Angled Eye Shader Brush #4. The same navy smoke shade, applied with Eye Contour Brush #14, created contrast for the eyeliner and gave depth when used to define the lower lashline. Lashes were made luxe with two coats of Larger Than LifeÂ® Volumizing Mascara, employing a back and forth curling motion to separate and evenly coat lashes with the wand.
