I'm rather obsessed with NARS products lately and I've built up a fairly good collection over the last 10 months or so. You may already know this if you've been following me on Instagram though! ;) (I'm @suzyheartsbeauty on there by the way!)

Since the above photo was taken, I ended up buying the And God Created The Woman palette as I had £10 of Space.NK Indulge Points to spend, yay! It has some stunning eyeshadows in it and the pigmentation and texture are amazing. Really smooth and buttery. There is a mixture of matte, shimmery and glittery shades, from light to dark. I already had one of the shades in my Kalahari Duo but it's such a beautiful cool toned bronzey-taupe shade, I don't mind having it twice! I wanted to try this palette out straight away yesterday so I decided to create a look using all NARS products. Apart from my mascara and brows where I don't own any NARS products in those categories.
I started off using the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Chantilly to cover my under eye circles. I love this concealer as it's great for all over the face. In fact, I went through a stage earlier this year where I did exactly that, rather than use a foundation! It's a really high coverage concealer that doesn't dry out the skin or look cakey. They have a very good shade range too. My third tube of this is waiting to be used so you know I love something when it's been repurchased!
I then used the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia, their lightest shade. I wanted this for so long but I'm glad I finally bought it a few months ago. It's a great match for my skintone, it's a good medium to full coverage foundation that has a semi-matte finish. It's not a dewy foundation as you would expect from the name but I find it makes my skin look radiant and healthy, not flat and dry. It's brilliant at covering redness and blemishes. Please ignore the massive spot on my chin though, no foundation or concealer is going to cover that 3D monster!
On the eyes I started with Kalahari (top middle) all over the lid then blended Bellissima (top left) into the crease. I then used Galapagos (bottom middle) against the top and bottom outer lash line.
The NARS Deep Throat Blush is a stunning peachy pink with a slight shimmer. It creates a glowy look on the cheeks without looking glittery. It's really pigmented and creates a wonderful pop of colour on the cheeks. I think this, in combination with the foundation, makes your skin look healthy and youthful. I love it!
I decided to finish the look with NARS Lipgloss in Orgasm, a shimmery peachy pink with gold glitter. This isn't super pigmented but it does put a nice wash of colour on the lips and looks pretty. I didn't want a bold lip for this look. It's a smooth lipgloss with a balm texture that isn't sticky at all.
So that's my look! Hope you like it :) I really need to feature more of my NARS products so watch out for some more makeup looks coming soon!
