Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

Last week I hosted an amazing event at the NARS Boutique at the Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace.

Myself and some of Las Vegas’ biggest influencers viewed the AMAZING Limited Edition Man Ray Collection (which I shared with you the second it launched click here to read) and we learned some pro make-up tips from NARS senior artist Julia Sohn.  Julia was trained by Francois Nars himself and is a repeat backstage at Fashion Week each season.

I wanted to share some of these hot holiday beauty tips from NARS that will really make your makeup pop this season.

Holiday Beauty Tips from NARS

FOUNDATION. Most people apply too much and are just wasting product.  Julia says to start with a small amount and apply it with your fingers starting at your nose in a pat then sweep motion, taking the sweep across the face in short strokes blending all the way to hairline.  I tried this technique today and my whole face was covered perfectly with foundation using only a fraction of what I normally use.

LIPS.  You all know I am a die hard red lippie gal.  The drawback to a strong red lip is that it bleeds.  It seems like no matter what you do it bleeds.  Julia has a solution.  Apply NARS Instant Line and Pore Perfector around the outside of the lip-line. It contains line and pore-filling microspheres which instantly smooth the skin’s surface while hyaluronic acid spheres gently plump to fill in lines and wrinkles.  Basically you are using it to fill the places that the lip color would bleed.  It leaves the area soft smooth and pucker-tastic.  (Yep I bought 2 of this baby right away.)

EYES.  Julia has a great trick for getting your eyes to really pop.  Whether you are winging it out or smokin’ it up, if you apply black pencil liner on the inside of your upper eyelid it will make your lashes look thicker and fuller!  Another great tip Julia had for eyes was to use bronzer to soften the eye.  Use just a fraction of bronzer to blend the edges, finish the look and warm your eyes up.  Julia used Laguna from the Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette to achieve this.

CHEEKS. Use a bronzer to contour the face and give it natural dimension.  Then add your blush between the apple and the cheekbone to create an epicenter to the cheeks then add a little blush around the temples to soften and warm up the face. Remember just touching your face with the brush brings a flush to your cheeks so when you apply blush make sure you apply a little then let it settle for a few minutes before you add more to avoid going cray cray on blush.  Julia did all of this with the Man Ray Veil Cheek Palette.
