A look featuring some of the NARS products from their Summer Collection. I wouldn’t say this is an everyday look or something I would normally wear during a night out but it was fun playing with colours. Kindly ignore the little cut I have above my brow, had a shaving accident.
For face: I started off with the new NARS Pro-Prime Multi-Protect Primer SPF 30 PA+++ as a base. It’s really lightweight and blends into the skin effortlessly. Once the primer sets, I applied Clarins Extra Firming Foundation with a brush and blend. This is one of the best smelling foundations one can have - seriously. After the foundation, I dived straight in with Chanel Eclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen which doubled up at an under-eye concealer for me as well. Set with Clarins Hydra-Luminous Flawless Powder Foundation – use a brush if you don’t want/need full coverage, I used the sponge and gently pat onto my skin then a brush to swipe off excess.
For eyes: Apply the medium shade to the inner corners of the eyes, bring it down to the tear duct and inner lower lash line. Followed with the darker shade at the outer corners. I brought the darker shade further outward then I normally do – in the shape of a wing. Use the lightest shade as a highlight under the brows and apply it to the center of the eyes – use it to blend the medium and darkest shade together. By applying the lightest shade in the center of the eyes will also create a 3 dimensional illusion to the eyes – making them bigger and brighter.
I applied black eyeliner to the lower lash line and MAC Fluidline in Siahi on the upper lid. Finished off with some false eyelashes.
For cheeks & lips: I used MAC Satin Powder Blush in Sur to contour the cheekbones and added a touch of NARS Powder Blush in Amour on the apples of my cheeks – to give a hint of colour. Finish the look with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero. Remember I had problems applying this shade evenly on my lips? This is the best I could achieve with the help of a little gloss.
Thank you for reading and hope you like this look.
