Numéro Will Wet Your Appetite for Winter

by Katherine Gould

Yum, yum yum and yum…  perhaps not the most eloquent of descriptions but these were the words uttered from my mouth upon seeing this Numéro November 2011 shoot by Ben Hassett.

Veritably dripping with diamonds, model Juju Ivanyuk showcases some of the top jewelry pieces for this season against a simple backdrop. Clothing is kept to a minimum while the emphasis of this story is focused on the hands, neck and face.

NARS make up artist Francelle has kept the make-up simple and polished. Using a soft, creamy shimmer on the lids and contouring with a mink pink in the socket she has created contrast with her use of liner and long, defined eyelashes. Brows are wild and untamed while lips are a beautiful dark blackened–plum, perfectly outlined for a pristine mouth. Perhaps she has been delving into NARS’ new Pure Matte Lipstick range? This shoot has certainly re-awakened my lust for the perfect winter shade. Click here to browse the NARS line of lipsticks.

Lastly, nails are painted a simple black and shaped into a neat oval profile; skin is matte without looking heavily powdered. What more can I say? Simple perfection wins every time.
