Designer, Mandy Coon was inspired by the texture and the metallic colors of crystals formations. It was an inspiration that she loved since childhood.

Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist stuck with the natural looking dewy skin trend with lavender eyes “It’s girly because of the eye color, but it’s tough since there’s no eyeliner,” said Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist. “The skin is dewy for a really whimsical, effortless affect. I also took a cue from Mark Rothko’s color-blocking and created a modern version on the eye with purple and pink.”
