Nars Spring 2012 Inspired Look

Here's a look inspired by Nars' Spring 2012 Collection as promised! I love how the smokey and dimensional navy eyeliner looks! You can choose to wear it with bold berry lips like in the advert or balance it for a more wearable look with a neutral lip colour! Hope you guys like it!

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in areas of concern. Set with a translucent powder.
2 Brush bronzer back through the cheeks, around the hairline, and a touch to the centre of the face to warm up the complexion and contour. Apply blush to the apples of the cheeks and an illuminator all over the cheeks and cheekbone for a natural glow.
3 Apply a nude shadow similar to your skin tone all over the lid as a base.
4 Use your cream product to sketch out a winged eyeliner. This will act as a great base for a strong colour with lots of staying power.
5 Press your navy eyeshadow directly on top of your eyeliner, avoiding the tip of the wing. Use a blending brush to soften the liner and make it soft and smokey looking.
6 Use a black cream liner to tight line the upper lashes, wrapping around into the inner corners of the eye. Smudge this black liner across the top of the upper lashes as well.
7 Apply a light coat of dramatic mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
8 Lightly highlight the inner corners of the eyes and under the brows.
9 Apply a blue based berry red lipstick to the lips for lots of drama, or keep it natural with a light shimmery pink lip balm!
