Francois Nars

Makeup Artist

Other credits: Photographer, Creative Director


Nationality: France
World renowned makeup artist Francois Nars has had his own makeup line since 1994. His career took off when he became Marc Jacobs' go-to show makeup artist after the two met at a Steven Meisel photo shoot. Once Marc left Perry Ellis to design his own brand, he needed someone to do makeup for his shows. The two worked together for over 10 years before Nars left to create his own line. In 2009, he photographed and published 15 x 15, with 15 of his favorite people, celebrating 15 years of his line. Francois frequently photographs many of his own books and campaigns. This is his 3rd book following his photography book, X-Ray in 1999 and Make-Up Your Mind in 2001.
