Spring 2014: NEW! NARS Contour Blush…

The brand spanking new NARS Contour Blush [$42] is the ultimate essential in makeup artistry and the secret weapon to creating natural-looking definition with a luminous finish.  This is something that can switch up your whole look for spring!  These are not the contour shades of the 80’s…no ma’am!  These are soft and natural looking and when done right can give you dimension in your face that your cheekbones have been craving. Like Angelina in Maleficent?  No…but it’s a start!  Hahaha!

NARS Contour Blush

The beautifully balanced duos feature a lighter shade to illuminate the highpoints of the face and a deeper shade to enhance definition. Ultra-smooth, lightweight texture lends itself to a luminous finish and the specially designed contouring formula visual depth and dimension in a single swipe.  To create the perfect contour on cheeks, apply the deeper shade of the Contour Blush to the hollows of the cheek and along the hairline, sweep the light shade across the cheekbone toward the temple to soften and highlight. Finish the look with a pop of your favorite blush shade on the apples of the cheek. I like to use Orgasm or Lovejoy here.

  • OLYMPIA Ivory/Rose
  • PALOMA Pink beige/Deep rose
  • GIENAH Honey/Amber

I would use these with an angled brush, the highlight is DEFINITELY appears to be matte so if you want something with some shimmer, you can always pop some illuminator on the tops of your cheekbones in small dots and then blend.
