I was a NARS affiliate artist for about a year between 2018 and 2019, and in that time it was a dream come true to have access to their full PR kit and everything in the store whenever I did VIP wardrobing. I was also able to build my pro kit well, and here are some of my favorites:
🌸 Liquid Blush in Luster and Dolce Vita. I love this formula so much, it is true liquid blush, not a tint! The main difference being this really goes on and blends like a blush and doesn’t stain your skin or foundation like tints do. It builds well, you can easily go from subtle to strong.
Dolce Vita is the perfect drunk blush, berry, just went out for a run color.
Luster is my favorite for summery, sun-kissed and warm looks.
But my favorite is mixing them together for a no-fail, works on everyone, quick blush.
For this editorial look, I used both Dolce Vita and Luster for the eyes and topped it with a powder highlighter on the inner corner of the eyes and center of the lids. Also used Luster as a lip tint for both models.
🌝 Soft Matte Complete Concealer is one of the best full coverage concealers I’ve ever tried. It gives full coverage without being dry so it won’t slide over or under foundation, but it also won’t emphasize the dry edges of your blemishes, which is another problem in itself. I prefer it for spot concealing, but if you had to use it for your undereye, it can be sheered out!
✨Creamy Radiant Concealer is a cult-favorite for good reason. It’s the perfect undereye concealer because it is thick enough to cover and light enough to sit well without caking. Because it’s on the creamy side, the trick with this concealer is really just to set it with powder and you’re good to go.
⭐️Sheer Glow Foundation is a classic NARS fomula and just gets the job done. It’s straightforward in that it delivers coverage, just the right amount of glow and is long-lasting. It is so easy to use with a brush, fingers or sponge, can go on sheer or full, and has an amazing shade range. No special skills required!
I used all 3 of the complexion products for this ad for Charriol Philippines.
🌸 NARS Dual Intensity Blush is such an underrated gem! Pigmentation is so good, I even use it as eyeshadow. It has just the most beautiful sheen, no chunky glitters or sparkles here. Best applied with a small but fluffy brush and a light hand, a little goes a long long way.
Used as eyeshadow and blush for this editorial look. Straight from camera BTS photo.
