It’s my new favorite blush by NARS! I was inspired my Kim Kardashian’s everyday GLOW and I wanted it for myself! Yes, I know she has a makeup artist, wears fake eye lashes, the whole nine…but we can get this look too!
I seem to get very frustrated when it comes to cosmetics. I don’t experiment, I stick to the basics, and then get upset when someone else’s shimmery eye shadow looks so much better than mine! I had a really great experience today with a NARS consultant at Bloomingdales in NYC (Heyy David). He really took the time to understand my needs and was honest about what worked and what didn’t, which is VERY hard to find. He wasn’t trying to just sell me anything…he wanted me to be comfortable with what I walked out with.
Thing is, I’m not getting any younger and it’s time to start wearing foundation, using eye cream and putting more time into my beauty routine. Here’s what I left the counter with. Yes, I spent more money than I was planning on (still stayed under $100), but I feel confident about my choices and I’m sure I’ll get so much use out of each of these products! I can’t wait to test them all out in the morning! MAKEOVER!!!
NARS Concealer in Honey ($22): I’m really self-conscious of the dark circles under my eyes and this is more of a peach tone than yellow, it blends really nicely.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation ($42): I’ve never worn foundation because I’m afraid of the cakey look and weighed down feeling, but this foundation is very light and gives my skin a nice shine (much nicer than the powder I’ve been using).
NARS Orgasm Blush ($25): This blush gives me that glow I’ve been looking for! It picks up the natural tones of my skin and gives me a “pinched cheek” look. It’s honestly the best blush I’ve tried.
With these 3 items, my base is totally taken care of. I have plenty of eyeshadows and eyeliners (from MAC) to play around with for now! A little bronzer (I go with Bobby Brown) and lip gloss and I’m good to go!

I also found the “NARS at Fashion Week” and “Product Application” videos very helpful! Check them out, they’re sure to change your view on how you apply your makeup.
