The Girl From Monday!


Yes, yes, every brand has already launched their Fall Collections and I'm posting a Summer look. But, technically, Fall doesn't begin till the 22nd. Also, I don't know about you, but it's still sweltering hot where I am. Therefore, I'm in NO mood for any Autumn looks just yet :)

I had no time to post this yesterday, so here's a look I wore using some of the products from the Nars Summer 2012 Collection.

Whether you have these items or not, I swatched them so you can use them for color reference :)

Nars Ramatuelle Eyeshadow Trio.

From left to right:  

A frosty icy pale silver-blue.

A shimmery pale peach-beige.

A satiny-matte, muted, soft apricot.

From left to right: Liberte Blush, Buenos Aires Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick.

 Liberte: A burnt reddened-apricot with a semi-matte finish.

Buenos Aires: A glossy peachy-nude beige.

Moscow: A deep tomato red.


Products used:
Face:
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe (Medium 2).
Nars Skin Smoothing Face Prep.

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer (on the brow bone)
Mac Shadestick in Silverbleu (blend out to almost nothing on the outer third of the eye lid ).
Nars Eyeshadow Trio in Ramatuelle:
Place the icy blue over the Silverbleu and blend from the outer third of the eye lid , crease and up to the brow.
blend the apricot color in the inner crease, up to the brow, stopping at the middle of the pupil. also place the apricot color on the outer half of the lower lashline stopping at the middle of the pupil.

Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Buenos Aires (Placed on the center of the lips and blended out with a lip brush).


I loved this entire collection, and I believe they'll transition well into Autumn...but that's how I feel about the majority of this year's Summer collections (i.e, Guerlain, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, etc)  :)

What were you wearing on Monday?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    1. Sheer glow is also one of my faves!

      actually, I just messed up my left brow the other day while I was waxing. Word of advise...don't wax when your in a rush! :P

  3. Hi Liz! Just found your blog recently and enjoying it a lot!
    I love cosmetics and here in Tokyo (I moved here only a year plus ago) I guess I just buy drugstore brands but I'm getting tired of the lousy payoffs. So now I am contemplating getting NARS but the prices here seem quite high. Where or which website would you recommend to buy from?

    1. Hi Agnes, and thank you!!

      I love Nars, but as you know, the markup is extremely high in Japan. I normally order from Nordstrom, Saks, or Neimanmarcus.com.

      If you're thinking about venturing into Nars, I'd like to recommend trying Addiction By Ayako :)
