A Find: NARS Eye Shadows Fall 2005
October 29, 2005
It takes a makeup artist to really know how to create great colors and formulas. Enter NARS Cosmetics by famed makeup artist Francois Nars. What makeup lover doesn’t adore NARS? This is the same company that made the now-infamous cheek color Orgasm. This one is widely popular, the name alone could be part of the reason why. The almost universally flattering peachy pink color is the other part. In fact, NARS is known for his flair with color. That’s one of the things I love about his Fall 2005 Jagged Edge collection. Don’t get me wrong, I love grays and taupes also. However, I sometimes tire of playing it safe in the makeup department. But these blendable colors are “edgy” yet suitable for us adults. There are shimmery colors that aren’t too glittery, bright shades that aren’t too ostentatious and all can be applied sheerly or “built up.” Try Blade Runner, a forest green and mahogany duo. Or try Swing, an eggplant cream shadow. If the deeper tones aren’t for you, trust me, there are plenty others to choose from.
