NARS Audacious Collection for Fall 2016

NARS Audacious Collection for Fall 2016

NARS is a classic brand with timeless products that still manage to look good season after season. Every now and then, though, NARS likes to get trendy with new products that are currently hot like liquid lipsticks and brow creams. However, NARS still takes the classic approach with wearable colors and their signature sleek black packaging that never goes out of style. The upcoming Audacious Collection for fall brings us that classic NARS feel that we love but with a little bit of trendiness to it with the new Brow Creams and liquid liners. I have a feeling that these new goodies for fall are going to be hot all year round!

Glowing Glam in Red

Glowing Glam in Red Makeup Look

I’ll probably always be a hardcore lipstick junkie but lately I’ve been super obsessed with highlighters and all things glow. A poppin’ highlight and a soft, dewy complexion is my go to look this summer. I’ve already shown you my summer glow essentials that I love whipping out to make me glow to the moon and back. However, it struck me that it would also be a good idea to share with you how I put it all together too.

Stay Beat in the Heat with these Summer Foundations

Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation, Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup, Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Makeup, NARS Pure Radiance Tinted Moisturizer

Loving makeup or having to rock a polished face to work on a regular basis can be fun at times. You get to flex your creativity by adding a little color to your day or take on the world feeling a powerfully beautiful new version of yourself. The downside, is that rocking makeup isn’t always sunshine and roses. Especially in the summer. You go from worrying about moisturizing and masking enough in the winter to stressing over how to keep your face flawless in 90º weather. I know the struggle, girl. Even as a dry gal, I can’t always keep my beat fresh and flawless in the summer heat without feeling like my foundation is melting or caking up something terrible. Over the years, though, I’ve learned that switching up your foundation (and skincare which we’ll discuss that later) helps a great deal to keep your makeup looking fresh and sweat free from sun up to sun down. So I’ve put together a quick guide to help you choose your perfect summer foundation that’ll help you stay flawless all season.

NARS Lovejoy Blush Review

NARS Lovejoy Blush

Most hardcore makeup lovers can’t get enough of blush but it seems that a lot of dark skin divas aren’t convinced that blush is where it’s at. I get it. Finding the perfect blush to compliment brown skin can be tricky. A lot of brands cater to lighter skin tones with pale pinks and corals that look ashy and washed out on brown skin. All hope isn’t lost though! Some brands create blushes with all skin tones in mind. Like NARS. NARS is king when it comes to high end blushes for brown skin because there’s a huge color range with shades that are designed to give us brown skin beauties the perfect flush.

NARS Under Cover Summer 2016 Collection

NARS Summer 2016 Collection

NARS is known for their simple iconic, minimalistic matte black packaging but every now and then NARS likes to spice things up a bit for their limited edition collections. Or a lot when it comes to this year’s summer collection. Don’t get too antsy just yet! The products feature same classic rubbery matte black we’re used to but this time around the boxes are just as beautiful as the makeup itself. For the upcoming limited edition summer collection, NARS has decked out the product packaging with beautiful illustrations from the talented contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias to make this collection a true work of art from start to finish.

NARS x Steven Klein Despair Cheek Palette Review

NARS Steven Klein Despair Cheek Palette

Makeup has always been a weakness for me but last holiday season it got really bad. So many brands were pumping out amazing sets and palettes that I just couldn’t resist them. Especially all those darn palettes! From eyeshadow palettes to cheek palettes, I was hauling them all and falling in love quickly because they were just oh so good. The only downside is that most of them were limited edition so I had to rush through swatches and reviews like a mad woman so you could get your hands on them too before they quickly disappeared. That’s the one thing I hate about limited edition products!

Neutral Eyes with Tartelette in Bloom

Neutral Eyes with Tartelette in Bloom

The only thing better than buying new makeup is playing in new makeup! Over the holiday season, I hauled a lot of new goodies including a handful of face and eye palettes that I’ve been dying to put to use. My schedule was insane over the holiday season so I didn’t really get a chance to play with all of my new goodies but now that my days are a little less hectic it’s play time!
