Rodarte has always held a special place with cool girls about town so it seems fitting that the brand would look to exactly those sorts of girls when plotting their S/S15 beauty look. Legends James Kaliardos and Odile Gilbert (Exposure NY) focused on clear skin, barely there lips and long straight hair – everything as natural as can be save the addition of nearly a dozen silver rings adorning model’s eyebrows.

As we all know a natural look often requires a great deal of product and to get the Rodarte glam Kaliardos and team used a combo of NARSSkin Luminous Moisture Cream and NARSSkin Total Replenishing Eye Cream to create a dewy look then added a touches of Radiant Cream Compact Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer to even out models skintones. Pressed Powder set the final look, but skin was kept looking natural instead of overly matte. Since product labels are suggestions rather than hard and fast rules St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow (in stores 2015)  was used in lieu of blush.

Even though the lip look was neutral things were kept luxe with swipes of NARS’ new Audacious lipsticks in Barbara for pale skin and Vanessa  for darker complexions providing the final compliment for those silver hoops. Don’t worry the models didn’t have to undergo piercings – the decorative body jewelry was held in place with a liberal application of glue.
