NARS MAKEUP COLOUR SUMMER 2012 COLLECTION
MAY 5, 2012
NARS Spring collection takes a trip to France, Italy, Moscow, Buenos Aires and the Caribbean creating a sultry, barely there look. Sunny, warm earth tones in apricot, grape and strawberry red happily pair with icy, shimmery cool tones of orchid, regal blue and plum.
To recreate Ginta Lapina's look for NARS:
Base: St. Moritz Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer set with Eden Loose Powder
Bronzer: Laguna Bronzer swept over the face in the shape of a 3 beginning in the middle of the forehead and working to the cheek and along the jawline
Blush: Liberté Blush on the apples of the cheeks with a light dusting of Taos Blush around the hairline
Eyes: Start with the Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow pairing of the silver and icy peach on the lid and into the crease, blend well. Add the apricot into the crease and the silver along the lower lash line and in the inner corner of the eye. Define the eye with Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner on both the upper and lower lids.
Lashes: Curl and add two coats of Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara
Lips Line and fill the entire lip in Borneo Lip Liner Pencil add Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick and finish with Risky Business Lip Gloss for shine.
Remember that you can always pair warm and cool tones. If you are a newbie to this, keep each half of the same the same tone. For example, if the eyes are cool then a warm blush and lip works well or vice versa if the eyes are warm, keep the cheeks and lips cool.
Experiment with makeup, after all it's about creating a new look.
