NARS Fall Collection

NARS is always at the top of the makeup wish list, no matter what the season. However it’s one of few brands that constantly keep up with the trends, and even create its own. As a makeup artist, it’s always interesting to see how new makeup collections reflect current trends whilst staying true to their ethos and signature look. Trends this season include flawless candle-lit skin, berry lips, glosses and smoky eyes, and NARS have hit the nail on the head with their new AW collection.
I can’t pick one favourite from this collection, so I’m going to tell you about my favourite products, in no particular order.
First up we have ‘VIP red’, the new shade of NARS’ infamous semi-matte lipstick. It’s a deep, burnt orange red –perfect for channelling the 70s trend or layering it for a deeper berry tone. What’s I love so much about this is that it suits EVERYONE and you can wear it however you like. Plus, the texture is creamy and moisturising yet long lasting, in keeping with the rest of the semi-matte range.
If lipstick isn’t your thing, or you want to go with more of a high end glossy lip, then ladies and gentlemen, we have found the PERFECT nude lip-gloss. Chelsea-girl is effortless, classy, and flawless. It’s a mid-toned warm tone with the perfect balance of beige and pink. Combine this with its creamy silky texture and longevity and it’s everything you’ve ever wanted right there with a perfect little applicator to boot. I promise, you’ll never want to take this out of your handbag.
Much like the perfect nude gloss, we’ve also been given the ultimate in highlighters. Packaged as a blush, Tribulation is a sandy tone with the perfect amount of shimmer, which instantly lights up any skin type, shade or tone. On mid-dark shades it works perfectly to give a lit-from- within glow, and on paler skins it gives a beautiful and natural warmth.
Last but most certainly not least, we have the brand new Audacious Mascara. This is a really innovative design both in the brush and in the formula. The brush itself has been designed with over 200 moulded bristles and lengthening hooks, which really get into the base of the lashes and the smaller, outer corners. The formula is packed with conditioners and humectants (keeping moisturise in the lashes), and doesn’t dry out – meaning you can build layer upon layer no matter how long you’ve been wearing it. As well as being buildable, this mascara really lengthens and separates the lashes, giving you a wide eyed appearance.
