NARS at the 2014 Met Gala

I love looking at the dresses from the Met Gala. If only I could be a fly on the wall at the actual event!

Two beautiful stars looked fabulous wearing NARS this year. Here are the details from their look....

SARAH JESSICA PARKER
NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez to create SJP's look for the Met. "Her makeup look is a modern version of something we'd see from the 1950s," says Lopez. Here are the products she used to achieve this look:
 - Giove Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (new for summer 2014)

SOLANGE KNOWLES
NARS worked with celebrity artist Benjamin Puckey to create Solange's look. After seeing her dress, Benjamin decided that her focus should be her eyes. Here are the products he used:
 - Subra Dual - Intensity Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2014)




NARS Bold Lip Tutorial

Want to rock a bold lip this Fall? Check out this video tutorial by NARS head makeup artist, Cindy Rodriquez. All products used are inspired by Guy Bourdin's Holiday collection. Details on the collection coming soon!




NARS 413 BLKR

NARS
I love when makeup companies create lines with NYC themes. I only lived in the city for 6 months, but it only took me one day to fall in love with it, and now I tend to obsess over everything that has to do with it!

NARS has a flagship boutique in the hip West Village at 413 Bleecker St. This location has served as an inspiration to their line, 413 BLKR collection. The latest additions to this line has arrived just in time for fall, which seems to have come a little early this year with all of this cold weather we've been having in the midwest! A deep rose brown lipstick and a midnight blue nail polish. Perfect hues for your fall sweaters and jackets.

"Founder and Creative Director Fancois Nars drew inspiration from the fast-paced city of Manhattan when this line-up and these new shades fit in seamlessly."

I love wearing darker colors in the fall. Especially deep blues for University of Michigan games! 

You can find this collection on www.narscosmetics.com. 


NARS Hearts New York City

I love this palette more than NARS loves New York! This limited edition gift set features  4 shadows (Biarritz, Nepal, New York & Galapagos) and a blush/bronzer (Amour Blush and Laguna Bronzer). It also includes a compact version of Chinatown Nail Polish and Dolce Vita lip gloss.

Set is available May 1 at select retailers including Barneys, Lord & Taylor, Saks, Henri Bendel & Bloomingdale's.

Gwyneth Paltrow wears NARS at the Academy Awards







NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez to create presenter Gwyneth Paltrow’s red carpet look at the 84th annual Academy Awards!

"It’s elegantly bronzed,” said celebrity makeup artist Leslie Lopez for NARS Cosmetics about the red carpet look she created for Gwyneth Paltrow. “The dress makes such a statement, but it also has no color, so we needed to create a makeup look that complemented the dress and was still sophisticated enough for the red carpet. I really loved the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer because it gives a sun-kissed look to her skin, and perfect against a white dress!”

FACE

EYES
The champagne side of NARS Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow applied on the eyelid for a pop of gold, followed by a Maybelline brown liquid eyeliner along the lashline. The look was finished with NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.

LIPS


** NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 PA +++ was also applied to her neck, décolletage, and shoulders!


Rose Byrne wears NARS at the 84th Academy Awards

Makeup by Maude Laceppee for NARS

 
Inspiration:
"Her dress is like a piece of jewelry so we wanted glamorous and sexy but minimal at the same time. It's really elegant and modern. We wanted the skin to look transparent but radiant and the new tinted moisturizer produces that effect. It's is super light but easy to blend for as much coverage as you want or need. It's a beautiful veil on the skin for a perfect red carpet glow."
 
The Look:

Golden Globes Style - NARS


Makeup by Toby Fleischman for NARS Cosmetics
Inspiration: 
 "Sometimes the stars just align (pun intended) and tonight with nominee Evan Rachel Wood, her look came together so organically. Of course with a Gucci Premiere gown such as hers, it was all about the dress so we wanted to keep the make up clean and soft.
When I saw the new NARS Spring collection, it was as if the products were created specifically for this look!  We had so much fun getting ready for the big day. We rocked out to some of our favorite tunes (Lykke Li), ate some yummy snacks (cookies of course) and most importantly laughed!"
The Look:
Paramaribo Duo Eyeshadow (new for Spring 2012) was the exact gilded gold and bronze we wanted to create a soft metallic eye that would pick up the accent of the feathers.  Then we used Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara on the lashes to finish the eye (ok maybe more than one coat!).
To keep the rest of the face feminine, the new NARS Gaiety Blush (new for Spring 2012) was amazing for a sheer flush of pink on the cheek along with a swipe of good-old standby NARS Angelika Blush to add a bit of shimmer.
NARS Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil topped off with Como Larger Than Life Lip Gloss gave Evan a soft mauve pink lip to complete the look.

NARS Fall 2011 Collection


The Fall 2011 collection is resolutely avant-garde. Daring shots of color are tempered with softer, subtler tones. Eyes range from bright true blue to silvery taupe, dazzling peach and matte dove gray. Lips run the gamut from statement-making matte red to sophisticated plum and sparkling champagne pink. A stormy gray nail color adds a mysterious finishing touch.

The campaign was designed and photographed by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Italian beauty Mariacarla Boscono was chosen as the face of the campaign because of her sophistication and chameleon-like ability to become the character she is made up to portray.

Mandy Moore Wears NARS at the Oscars



NARS worked with celebrity makeup artist Kayleen McAdams to create the look for Tangled’s Mandy Moore who stepped out both on the red carpet and on stage at tonight’s Academy Awards. Please see below for details regarding each look.


ON THE RED CARPET: “We wanted her makeup to have a strong pop,” said Kayleen about Mandy’s red carpet lips. “I was so inspired by all the coral and orange lips on the runway for spring so I did a tangerine version on the lips and cheeks." Below are the NARS products that Kayleen used to create Mandy’s red-carpet arrivals look:

· FACE

o PRO-PRIME Pore Refining Primer (NEW for Spring 2011; exclusively available at Sephora)

o Sheer Matte Foundation

o Copacabana Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2011!)

· EYES

o PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

o Corfu Cream Eyeshadow

o Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow

o Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

· LIPS

o Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil


ON STAGE: “We had to balance out her look because of the dress which we did by toning down the lip from a bright orange, to a flushed peach,” said Kayleen about the change. Keeping Mandy’s base the same, Kayleen used the following products:

· FACE, NECK, & DÉCOLLETÉ

o Copacabana Illuminator

· EYES

o Silk Road Duo Eyeshadow

o Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil

o Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara

· LIPS

o Hopi Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (NEW for Spring 2011!)
