Happy Holidays, ya’ll! I’m SUPER in the festive mood and this makeup tutorial is just one of MANY holiday posts to come. Stay tuned for gift guides, holiday outfit ideas, and muuuuch more. You can SUBSCRIBE to the blog here so you don’t miss a thing.
NARS Cosmetics has been a brand that has always stood by not only diversity, but creating collections that transcend with every type of woman. So it’s no surprise that the brand’s latest collab with world-renown photographer Sarah Moon brings a unique approach to femininity and how we perceive beauty and individuality. Just in time for the holidays, the 25 piece collection is as dreamy as you can imagine. Inspired by the nostalgic futurism of the 1925 film Metropolis, François Nars and Moon joined creative forces to bring alive a line that is short from luxurious. The range of shades and formulas are true to the brand and the packaging looks like a work of art! Judging by the images, the colors are stunning and true to what fall/winter makeup should be – dark plums, rich reds and smoky eyes. Among the 25 pieces there are 10 gift sets – so there’s no excuse for you not to spoil your friends and family as well as yourself! It will be released exclusively on NARScosmetics.com and NARS boutiques on October 15th and on sephora.com and specialty stores on November 1st. Check out the full collection below.
Recently I was invited to what was touted as a secret beauty press event that I didn’t want to miss out on or be plagued with serious FOMO (fear of missing out). Turns out it was the launch of a possibly game-changing lash applicator AND Amber Rose was in the building and announced as the new face for Flirt Cosmetics. BTW, Amber is SO super sweet (I knew she would be!) and OMG her SKIIIIIIN is amazing.
So now I really see the appeal in microblogging in real time while traveling—especially when you travel from city to city. I was in Brussels about ten days ago (although it feels like three months ago) and traveled to two other cities in Belgium and each city I traveled to was more beautiful than the last. Which makes things a little unfair to the previous cities because now my viewpoint is a little tainted. But I would say that I’d love to visit Belgium again to see even more and would re-visit all three cities again.
I SERIOUSLY don’t need another makeup category to be obsessed with, but alas, lately I’ve been OBSESSED with lashes. I’m perfectly fine with my own lashes and two coats of mascara but when filming videos and taking pics, my eyes tend to get “lost” and the lashes bring them out more. This is exactly why people on television wear them—and not just the natural-looking ones, sometimes you need something super dramatic just to show up and look “natural” on TV or in pics. My lashes of choice lately are MAC #35s and just about any pair of Ardell Lashes I can get my hands on. But now NARS is breaking into the lash arena with the latest launch of NARS Eye Lashes. I received a few pairs for review consideration.
I own a gazillion lashes and love each pair (particularly my long time faves Ardell Demi Wispies) and love trying new ones. The other day I was going through my stash and came across a pair of MAC lashes I don’t remember buying…lol. They looked SUPER dramatic but I was running short on time and they were the first ones I put my hands on. OMG I was hyped when I looked in the mirror after I put them on…lol. WHERE have these MAC #35 lashes been all my life? (Besides tucked away in one of my makeup drawers unbeknownst to me…lol.)
