Keeping up with all the constant new makeup trends is not that easy sometimes, every season brings new makeup techniques, new color shades and innovative long lasting products. Magazines and online researches can help to stay in the loop, but nothing beats the live demonstration of a New York Makeup artist. Last week I had the opportunity to preview the new makeup collection by NARS Cosmetics at the Forum Shops in Las Vegas. The brand hosted a wonderful event to offer a demonstration of the latest trends to the local Vegas bloggers. The new shades are warmer, some lipstick colors are bold and strong, perfect for a sensational Holiday look! NARS just dropped a Limited edition “Love Triangle” that includes a matte dusty rose blush (Dolce Vita Blush) and a red flame lipstick (Audrey Audacious Lipstick). Another unique palette they will be selling for limited time is the “#NARSissist Wanted Eyeshadow Palette”, 12 high-impact shadows in a range of buttery matte, lustrous satin, and glittering metallic finishes. It’s one of their best selling palettes thanks to its rich pigmentation formula that allows bold colors that play well on all skin tones.
Although their lip gloss collection is sensational, I am more attracted by the lipstick collection. They have some serious gorgeous bold colors to tis the season!
Trough the years, I’ve tested dozens of different concealers from different brands, but I was never fully satisfied of the results. My friend Amanda hooked me up with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and I now addicted to it! My color is “Crme Brule” but they offer 22 different shades to match every skin tone.
A NARS makeup expert gave us a delightful demonstration of the new warm “Fetishized Blush”, the ultimate authority in blush!
The pigmentation allows a healthy-looking color that enlivens the complexion and provides a natural looking flush that flatters any skin tone.
Another fantastic product that NARS just launched is the new Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation! With 33 different shades for every skin tone, this innovative foundation offers a 16hr shade resistance for a full and radiant coverage all day! I tested it when I was at the boutique and immediately noticed how lightweight and radiant it is. Although it’s strongwear and full coverage, the final look is still very natural. Its formula is infused with Raspberry, Apple, and Watermelon extracts to help smooth and improve the look of your skin instantly. It wears longer, stays stronger, and looks better with each hour.
It’s ideal for Medium to full coverage, my preferred choice since I always opt for the most natural and radiant look possible.
For the event, I opted for a total “European look”, with a 2 piece set with a plaid miniskirt and a black sweater with pretty gold buttons on the sleeves. Chic and elegant, perfect for the occasion. I styled some laced up over the knee boots and topped with a leather black boy cap. So parisine! My Gucci Dionysus completed the look.
Always fun times with these two!
We sipped some champagne at the store and had a blast, as always. This girl cracks me up every time!
Special thanks to the NARS Team at the Forums Shops for organizing such a a fun event! They were very kind and helpful, if you stop by at the NARS boutique, they will assist you to find the right shade for your skin tone and the best products that matches your complexion. Looking forward to test the goodies they gifted me. Happy Holidays!
