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
