Let us start off by saying, make-up is a necessity like no other. You wear it almost every day (hopefully except for lazy Sundays) and like your clothing, should vary based on the situation you find yourself in (let’s hope you’re not wearing your club make-up to work…). Additionally, like your clothing, make-up varies woman to woman based on your skin type, skin color, eye color and overall personal preference. A make-up brand we are absolutely WAiSTEDD on and almost exclusively use is NARS. It really is out of this world.
A few summers ago, Danielle visited the NARS store in New York City (thanks to her very chic and make-up savvy cousin Miranda) and since then every one of our friends and family members have been turned onto their make-up. Not only did we fall in love with their products, but we loved every make-up artist in the store- they were amazing!!! They spent the entire day showing Danielle different products and how to apply them- Danielle even got a smokey eye tutorial. If you’re not in an area where there is a NARS store, we recommend seeing their stop at Nordstrom beauty- great customer service and each make-up artist is extremely knowledgeable about the products.
Make-up is a very tricky thing- the good brands can often times be so expensive and feel similar to drug store brands and drug-store brands can feel thick and unpleasant on your skin, because they are cheap. Thats why we love NARS- it is an appropriate price and yet still makes your make-up routine feel effortless. Both of us have sensitive skin and have struggled to find make-up that feels great and looks great.
NARS is the total package.
Below are a few of our favorite products. Day to day, we love to wear the tinted moisturizer (not pictured below, but available on their website) paired with the illuminator/blush and the shadow pencil with a little mascara. What’s great about the shadow pencil is it provides a great eyeshadow base during the day and yet you are able to add onto it for a smokey look if you’re going to hit the town that night. The brightening serum is a product we mix in with our liquid foundation (which we love if you need more coverage & it is light and airy on your skin). The serum gives your skin an incredibly healthy glow. The NARS skin line is great- a must see on their website.
NARS is a make-up brand we truly cannot say enough great things about- we have finally found a make-up that is worth the effort of putting on everyday! Make sure to check our their website here NARS for tons of amazing make-up & skin products. Share with us your favorites!
