NARS Cosmetics does it again. Just take one look at this lovely makeup collection and then try to tell yourself you don't need to have it.
NARS describes this limited edition "NARS Loves Los Angeles" set as "Role playing, red carpets and natural glamour presented in a scene shifting color set with illuminating L.A. style."
The sultry set includes:
NARS LOVES LOS ANGELES Palette featuring Abyssinia, Etrusque, Outremer and Bali eye shadows, Deep Throat blush and Laguna bronzer. Next, top it off with Turkish Delight lip gloss and Trouville nail polish. Retailing for $75, this set sits at a nice price point and could possibly be the only palette or set you'd need to take with you on a vacation.
From a makeup artist perspective, there are a few ways you can wear it. For rocking a three color eye shadow look, take the highlight eye color. Apply under brow. Next, apply the gold on your lid and crease. Next, blend the darkest brown into the crease and outer corner of the lid. Lastly, top it off with using the bright blue on an eyeliner brush. Use it as eyeliner or create a smoky look by sweeping along the bottom lash line.
Another way to wear it would be to put the blue in the crease. Then, sweep the gold in the inner corner of the bottom lashes while reserving the dark brown for the outer corners of the bottom lash line. Lastly, line your water line of the under eye with a deep dark brown eyeliner to make the look pop.
Since there's so much brown and gold in the palette, consider opting for a lip liner in a nude / brownish shade that's slightly darker than the lip gloss itself. To create a pouty lip look, dab some of the gold shadow smack dab in the center of the lower lip as your last step.
As always, some women enjoy using bronzer as their cheek color. You, too, can do this. However, for a completely sculpted look, suck your cheeks in to make a fishy face. Then, slightly below your cheek bone, apply the bronzer. Let's also not forget to bronze the hairline and jawline down to the neck. Apply the cheek color above the bronzer so it rests perfectly on your cheek bone. Finally, use the sparkly gold shadow on a fluffy brush and sweep it over the cheek color for a gorgeous highlighted look.
