Today's article is all about BEAUTY and MAKEUP!!!!! Makeup has been around since the time of Egyptian queens like Cleopatra, and women have been using it to enhance their natural beauty since forever! Why? Well, I believe that makeup helps with confidence, self-image, and has the capability to shape the emotional reaction of others. Just think about the impact that a bright red lipstick can have! My fashion is never complete without makeup. Ever.
A few weeks ago, my MUA friend, Melissa (who is also a Makeup Stylist at NARS at Barney's NY) invited me to the launch of NARS new collection - The Audacious Lipstick Collection. In celebration of its 20th anniversary, they have released 40 new shades of lipstick colors, along with other cosmetics -- including beautifully colored nail polishes. The shades from nudes, reds, pinks, orange, plums, and vampy shades. Each shade is named for an iconic woman in song, film or fashion and is encased in a sleek matte-black tube with a magnetic click.
Of all 40 colors, a selection of 10 shades - Vanessa, Julie, Dominique, Marisa, Vivien, Silvia, Kelly, Carmen, Sandra, and Ingrid - are exclusive to NARS Boutiques, narscosmetics.com and Barney's New York, but all 40 of them are permanent. They were launched a few weeks earlier at Barney's, so I went to the one in downtown to check them out, and I had Melissa do my makeup (That was the most fun part!) Now the collection is available at Sephora and other department stores!
