The look was couture with a futuristic twist at Marc Jacobs' Fall 2011 runway show. Here, the backstage lineup showing each of the models in their looks.
Nars created the makeup look for the show, which was pinned as an example on each backstage station.

One of the main components of the look was a blush, applied towards the bottom end of the cheek -- a forward-thinking alternative to the traditional, high-cheekbones blush.
The resulting look was still flattering, but definitely a bit off-kilter -- a nice counterpoint to the dramatic eyeliner, which also swooped downward at the outer corners of the eyes.

The finished look was a nice complement to Jacobs' high-concept collection, which juxtaposed couture-inspired silhouettes with synthetic materials like rubber and vinyl.

Polka dots littered the collection -- from pencil skirts to tights to cabochon-topped berets.

Some of the final looks at Marc Jacobs felt purely traditional, like this gorgeous lace dress, rendered in navy.
