Get the Look: NARS

This look was created for me by Becky from NARS Cosmetics.

For my complexion Becky used the NARS Oil Free Primer, which was then followed by applying the Sheer Glow Foundation in 'Mont Blanc', and then to powder my T-zone she then applied a compact powder in 'Mont Blanc'. Becky then applied the NARS brand new Radiance Concealer in 'Vanilla' under my eyes, and then to finish off my complexion she then lightly dusted my face with the famous Laguna Bronzer.

For my eyes Becky first applied the NARS eye primer, as this will help my eyeshadow to stay on better. For my base colour I decided to go for Lhasa, as its a grey-taupe colour and this was applied to my lids and then slightly up towards my brow bone. Becky then applied the Black Pro Longwear eyeliner over the top of my lashes, and then over the top of the eyeliner she then applied the eyeshadow in 'Coconut Grove' using a small eyeshadow shader brush, and then also applied it to the corners of my eyes to give my eyes a subtle smokey look.

For my cheeks we decided to use the new limited edition NARS blusher in 'Rontonde'.

To finish the look off we went for the lipgloss pencil in 'Happy Days'.
