Get The NARS Earthy Smoky Look

written by Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

On the runways, makeup artists traded in the usual black for softer shades like brown, teal, and gray, for a rich, smoldering look that perfectly matches edgy-classic fashions. NARS created this earthy smoky look that is easy to do. This look can be great for a day or evening look.

For a smoldering combo of sultry browns, apply copper shadow to the lids, the inner corners, and at the base of the lower lash lines. Follow with a twig-tone shadow in the creases, blended up towards the brow bones using a smudge brush.

TRY NARS DUO EYESHADOW in Isolde (frosted ginger/ shimmering copper) or NARS SINGLE EYE SHADOW in Fez (velvety cocoa)

Use a nude pink blush to bring out bone structure, brushing the color just beneath the cheekbones. The low-key shade will give the face color, without overpowering the eyes. Highlight temples with a sheer, golden shade of blush or highlighter.

TRY NARS Blush Dolce Vita or NARS Blush Albatross

Prime lips with a vitamin-enriched lip treatment and line them with a nude liner, blending the color towards the center of the lips. Finish with a layer of gloss in a shiny shade of pinky-nude.

TRY NARS Lip liner Pencil Jilted Lover and NARS Lip Gloss Female Trouble

BEAUTY GOODIES: Clinique Quick Blush Brush

written by Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

If you’re a woman on the go, then you will love this new product by Clinique. Clinique came out with their new Quick Blush Brush. The sleek cylinder blush brush comes in six shades. The brush is finished with Clinique’s anti-bacterial technology now this doesn’t mean you don’t still have to keep it clean, wash it every couple of weeks with gentle shampoo and a little conditioner and lay it flat to dry. Now personally, I wash my makeup brushes every night with baby shampoo and once a week I add conditioner to my brushes. But, if you are just using the brush on yourself this anti-technology should be ok.

The Quick Blush tube is the perfect size and very lightweight. So you never have to worry about makeup breaking in spilling in your favorite clutch or handbag.
