A NARS Makeover by the Book
François Nars, the mastermind and creative genius behind NARS cosmetics, recently published Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself, a makeup how-to manual. The book features before and after images — clean and made-up faces of all ages and ethnicities — with transparent overlays explaining the placement of each product.
The book is an amazing, easy-to-use makeup resource — whether you’re looking for a new look or just some fresh ideas that complement your signature style. Best of all, Mr. Nars describes each color (in addition to providing the shade name) — so you don’t have to buy a new makeup wardrobe to recreate his technique. You can use products you already own, regardless what brand they are.
To help customers see Makeup Your Mind as more than just an amazing work of art, the team at Dallas Northpark held an event. Choose any look from the book, and a NARS artist would recreate it on you. Dallas artist Winnie Pham executed this smoky-eye-nude-lips look perfectly.
Here are the products she used:
Hydrating Freshening Lotion (a lightweight moisturizer that also contains mild exfoliating ingredients for a more radiant complexion)
Brightening Serum (fast-acting, antioxidant-rich, skin brightener with a subtly pearlescent finish)
Nourishing Eye Cream (a moisturizer for delicate undereye skin)
Pro Prime Refiner
Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil
Bali (in the crease)
The darker shade of Paris Duo (all over the lid)
Heart of Glass (inner corner)
The darker side of Pandora Duo, wet (to tightline and on the lashline)
