Mecca Cosmetica – NARS Spring Collection

nars spring

“Inspired by Catherine Deneuve’s role as Lucille in La Chamade, the NEW NARS Spring 2010
Collection features soft, sexy shades that are as elegant as they are versatile. “I love Catherine’s
makeup look in this movie,” says François. “It’s very sophisticated and bourgeois in a Parisian
‘16th Arrondissement’ way. She is the perfect reference for this collection, and apropos for our
spring collection, it’s time to embrace colour and get noticed.” The hues are playful yet
sophisticated and can be either soft and subtle or bold and daring. As always, the effects are
limitless, determined by application, technique, and attitude.”

Released Monday 22nd Feb 2010

Tip of the Day

When choosing a place in your home to apply your makeup, look for a room which has as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have this as an option check your makeup with a pocket mirror outside before you leave the house.

I always love Rihanna’s choice in style. Its the fact that she doesn’t mind taking risks or trying new trends!

Mylah Morales used NARS Orgasm Illuminator on Rihanna at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards Salute To Icons party.

“It’s really important to me to make Rihanna look like she’s glowing, like she just stepped off the beach” said Mylah Morales of the makeup look she created.

She is also wearing (NARS)

Not many people may agree with me but I’m loving the dress!

Especially with the slightly matchy makeup which has almost forever been a no-no!

Is this the type of post you would like to see more often???
