Andy Warhol once famously remarked: “If everybody’s not a beauty, then nobody is”.
So it was surely no surprise when the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts announced their first ever cosmetics collaboration with Francois Nars.
Following fast on the footsteps of their recent collaboration with Thakoon, Nars Creative Director and founder, Francois Nars, took things to the next level with Andy, the King of colour and purveyor of pop.
It’s been 25 years since his death and keeping the Met’s current retrospective, and Marc Jacobs’ ode to Edie created by Francois himself, for Jacobs’ S/S13 show, in mind, it’s clear Andy Warhol still rules NYC.
Named after Holly Woodlawn, the transgender actress who appeared in Warhol’s ‘Trash’, this fire-engine red is my favourite gloss of the collection.
High-shine, high-impact and long-lasting.
£19.00; Available at Narscosmetics.com
The ‘self-portrait’ palette is an easy way to achieve either the classic smokey eye or this season’s much-loved blue-green.
£39.50, available at Nars.
If you fancy being ahead of the game channel next season’s biggest looks now, with the jumbo eyeliners in silver and teal, and classic black.
Used to shade, highlight or line the eye, these mega-pencils are versatile, easy to apply and highly pigmented for a pop of colour.
Priced £17; Available at Narscosmetics.com.
There’s just something I love about yellow nails in winter, they really are the perfect companion to the the kohl-rimmed eyes and beatnik stripes of the sixties.
Nars’ version -’15 minutes’- refers to Warhol’s famous statement that “in the future everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”, and this creamy lemon shade is definitely a helping hand.
The deep teal (‘Superstar’) and black (‘Back Room’) are also great winter shades.
Priced £14, available at Nars.
