Last week, me and the Socialites attended a private beauty brunch hosted exclusively for us at the NARS boutique in the Fillmore district of San Francisco. While we sipped mimosas, we were introduced to their new fall collection and each received a customized makeup tutorial.
NARs is one of my favorite makeup lines. Their collection is fabulous for any complexion and it feels like butter on your skin. Most days, I don’t wear makeup. But, when I attend a networking event, speak at a conference or just want to put my best look forward as a boss- I definitely wear makeup. As a busy entrepreneur, my look has to be simple and quick. Going into fall, my go-to look is a bold lip with a clean face and neutral eyes.
Below are my staple products from NARS for this fall season.
For my face, I begin with the Radiance Primer ($36). It feels like butter on my skin and it has a SPF 35. I follow that with the Sheer Glow foundation in New Caledonia ($47) and the Soft Velvet Loose Powder in Mountain ($37). Then I’ll highlight my cheek bones with the Orgasm highlighter ($39).
Next are my eyes. I cover my eye lids with the Tinted Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base in Dark ($26) and line my top lash with their high pigment longwear eyeliner in black ($24). Then I coat my lashes with their Climax mascara in Explicit Black ($24) - and the name does not lie. The magic that this mascara creates is earth shattering just like a…wink wink.
My lips complete the fall look. I start with the Dragon Girl Matte lip pencil ($27) and top it with either the Priscilla gloss ($24) for a super bold look, or the Disco Infernal lip tint ($26) for a more subtle look. In the photo above, I am wearing the Priscilla.
And that’s it! The whole process takes about 15 minutes. What is your go-to look for fall? Let me know in the comments below.
