Beauty is all the rage in fashion – designers like Tom Ford, Michael Kors and even Burberry now have beauty lines.  It’s become important part of communicating the designer’s vision and marketing the brand.

So how does Marc Jacobs define beauty?  As he explains in the video released by Sephora, “I think it’s youth, it’s energy, it’s something you are attracted to and makeup is something that accentuates your features and plays up that spirit that you want to project“. The was the designer’s goal to create a very desirable product that really illustrates how he feels about beauty as he explains in the video “it’s a luxury that women love to indulge in”.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 backstage beauty with makeup artist Francois Nars and hair stylist Guido Palau and top models Cara Delevingne, Magdelena Frackiowiak, Jessica Stam, photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

The beauty look of Marc Jacobs for Fall 2013 “It’s a very underground, cool-girl look, but still very sophisticated“, makeup artist Francois Nars explained backstage at the show. “Marc always wants the girl to look sexy no matter what. He likes when the makeup looks a little destroyed“.

The hair look by stylist Guido Palau was inspired in part by a cut he had done on top model Edie Campbell for Vogue Magazine. Guido gave all the models haircuts like 80’s rock icon Joan Jett, “Marc was also referencing a girl in the 90’s called Kim Pierce who had a similar haircut – and then we got into Joan Jett and people like that. Marc liked the whole idea of deconstructing the glam he produced in his clothes”.

Watch our exclusive Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 backstage beauty video featuring interviews with makeup artist Francois Nars, hair stylist Guido Palau, Cara Delevingne, Ruby Jean Wilson, Catherine McNeil and photographers Inez van Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.

Allure Backstage Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 Backstage Beauty Video. Go backstage at Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 with makeup artist Francois Nars and hairstylist Guido Palau at New York Fashion week. 60’s icon Edie Sedgwick was the inspiration of the Marc Jacobs show. THE LOOK: Mod liner, strong brows and teased hair.

As Francois Nars explained backstage “We came up with an updated version of the ’60s look that Edie Sedgwick, the Andy Warhol superstar, was doing for herself. To make it fresh, we took out the heaviness of her look, we took out the eyelashes, but we kept the essence of it: thick eyebrows and black-and-white, very monochromatic makeup.”

The hair look Guido Palau created was all about a voluminous, teased ponytail. Guido spritzed the hair with Redken Guts mousse, made a deep side part, and rough-dried it. For lift at the crown, he used Redken Quick Tease at the roots. After gathering the hair into a ponytail, Guido pulled out little pieces of hair right before the show started, “so it feels like she’s slept in it.”

Designer Marc Jacobs closed New York Spring 2012 Fashion Week with a collection that was enchanting and dazzling.  The gorgeous set at the Lexington Armory was designed to look like 40s style American dance hall, complete with wooden planks on the runway.  With the Philip Glass opera “Einstein on the Beach” as the soundtrack, the gold curtains parted to reveal 48 models each frozen in a Bob Fosse attitude setting the mood for the “All that Jazz” dance inspired show.

The Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 show was full of beautiful dresses made from techno fabrics that gave the collection a futuristic feel.   The beauty look makeup artist Francois Nars created was simple but sexy, the long lashes and pale lips had a 60’s feel and was inspired in part by singer Amy Winehouse. After the show we went backstage and caught up with of our favorite top models Ginta Lapina and she told us what it was like to be a part of this magical show.
