The Fashion Spot Momtastic

Our Love for Nigel and Cristen Barker Just Multiplied

It's the classic fashion love story: girl model meets boy model. They get married, move into photography and reality TV, and then build a beauty line (obviously)

Nigel Barker, the "noted fashion photographer" from America's Next Top Model, will be venturing into the beauty world with his makeup artist wife of 14 years, Cristen Barker (who's also been a Cover Girl since '99). They're launching two beauty lines that'll be released in 2014: Beauty Equation, a prestige line, and BE Cosmetics, for mass distribution.

We can't say we're surprised by the duo's expansion into the beauty industry. They met as fashion models in Milan 20 years ago (love at first sight, they say), and also have a long history in reality television. Nigel Barker cited his experience photographing models' faces with a close lens as an inspiration for the new beauty endeavor. Their new skin care and makeup products are designed to make women "camera ready." Dare I say "smize" ready?

Both the skin care products and the color cosmetics in the prestige Beauty Equation line will contain a blend of botanical extracts and vitamins. The only downside? The price point: Expect individual products, like eyeshadows, lip glosses, and kits, to be between $59.50 and $85.61.

On the flip side, their BE Cosmetics line aims to create "a healthy environment for younger skin" and is targeted towards a younger demo. These products will range from $4 to $14.

And no matter which line you can afford, all of the products will be wrapped in Nigel Barker's original photography, so expect images that remind you of glossy magazines, creative mood boards, and reflect the couple's fashion and other inspirations.

If you have as big a couple crush on the Barkers as we do, keep an eye out for this exciting launch next year. In the meantime, we'll let you know when we get our hands on the preview and will fill you in on what we think.
