If glitzy, glamourous makeup isn’t your preferred holiday look, here’s a post for you! My take on NARS Holiday 2014.
starting with todays menu,
Opal Coast Eyeshadow single
Corsica Lip Gloss
Femme Fleur Lipstick
Algonquin Nail Polish
First up, Opal Coast. A beautiful, frosty white which swatches smooth and evenly.
Ukraine is a reddned, cranberry brown in a satin finish.
Femme Fleur is a warm medium, shimmery brown with a copper tone.
Corsica is a rose brown gloss with a satin finish.
Now onto a look created with this collection, something I believe would look beautiful paired with a white or ivory dress.
For the eyes I started off with a neutral shimmery nude base and then added Opal coast on top as a shimmer coat. As you can see I concentrated the colour towards the center of the lid. I then added the same shimmery nude to the tear duct for an intense inner eye highlight to make the eyes pop.
For lips I used Corsica by itself. No lip liner or lipstick beneath. Following with the blusher and some Kevyn Aucoin highlighter on the high points of my face to catch the light and add some dimension.
I believe the lipsticks and glosses from this collection were particularly good. Specially the red one Deadly Catch which I swatched in store and of course Corsica which is now permanently in my makeup bag.
I also loved the quality of the blush. Well pigmented, soft & blendable which was very much worth the price. Overall the collection is rather nice to own, specially with it’s limited edition packaging which is always something special.
The NARS Holiday collection is already available at Tangs beauty department as well as Robinsons.
