NARS Summer 2015 Picks


NARS favourites for Summer 2015

Summer is a time to celebrate beautiful, dewy and natural looking skin. I love the look of a radiant glow with defined cheekbones, teamed with a pretty natural lip for the day & a more dramatic deeper lip in the evenings ๐Ÿ™‚ (though you can keep it natural, anything looks good with a tan during Summer)

I have picked a few favourites to help you create a fresh and dewy look which can apply to both the day and the night.


NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

When it comes to perfecting your skin for Summer, you really don’t want anything that’s too heavy on your face. Opt for a lightweight foundation which adds warmth to the face.

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundationย is a great choice for Summer. The foundations are described as a base, however you can use these as your everyday foundation during Summer.

From left to right is

Santa Fe –ย Medium 2- Medium with peachy undertones

Stromboli – Medium 3 – Medium with olive undertones

Santa Fe is great for an all over colour, I used the Stromboli to add some depth and dimension to the face by doing a little contouring.

Tip – shake these foundations well before applying as the formula needs mixing before application. Apply a powder to keep the colour locked in place after applying.


NARS Dual-Intensity Blush

NARS Duel-Intensity Blushย is a new blush from NARS and comes in a variety of different shades. Photographed above is Adoration which isย Sparkling baby pink / Shimmering hot pink, really pretty for Summer!


NARS The Multiple Inย G-Spot

The NARS Multiples are so useful, I love the multi tasking functionality of them, they work perfectly on the face, eyes & the lips.

G-Spot is aย Rich gold-Infused rose, great for Summer evenings and gives you such a warm and natural glow.



NARS The Illuminator in Orgasm

NARS illuminatorsย are really very impressive for highlighting the cheekbones. They are highly pigmented, and the results are incredible.

Orgasm is a pretty pink shimmery shade, you don’t need to apply much to create a dramatic look, a little of this product really does go a very long way.

The illuminators are the perfect asset to create a dewy look.

Shine on. Brighten. Heighten. illuminate. – NARS


NARS Satin Lipstick in Blonde Venus

The NARS Satin Lipsticks are smooth and sophisticated, very silky to wear on the lips and a great natural shade to wear on the beach. Blonde Venus is aย Cool based neutral beige.


DSC_1487NARS Audacious Lipstick in Ingrid & Liv

When it comes to the Summer during the day I love a natural warm shade, however when it comes to the evening a darker lip really can compliment a dewy makeup look.

Ingrid is a Merlot lipstick, Liv is aย Deep aubergine. I blended these two together to create a really beautiful and unique shade, don’t be afraid to mix up lipsticks to create your perfect colour ๐Ÿ™‚


NARS Larger Then Life Mascara

The Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara is a great mascara which adds volume without being too clumpy. If you’re looking for a very natural black mascara this is the one for you, this mascara won’t give you the false eye look.

NARS is by far one of my favourite brands because the quality is always incredibly high. There are so many beautiful options to create the look that’s right for you.

My NARS Spring 2015 picks will also be perfect for you to use during Summer ๐Ÿ™‚

    Caroline –

    • NARS is so impressive. Ever single product has something to love about it. You should try some picks from the brand, there are so many beautiful options to choose from ๐Ÿ™‚ x

  • NARS is definitely my favorite makeup brand. I knew about their blush named orgasm; didn’t know about their illuminator. It looks stunning for the summer!


    • NARS is gorgeous isn’t it? Any favourites from the brand? Their illuminators are really ever so good, great quality and long lasting. They give a beautiful highlight ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      • Their illuminators are amazing!! I have one in copacabana. Not only is it lovely but it lasts forever as a little goes a long way.

        I also love their foundation! I’ve been using the sheer glow for ages and am really curious about their new formula, but I’m torn as it has such mixed reviews. I love that it worked for you.


  • They all look so lovely! I would love to try those lipsticks <3

  • NARS really seems to have some cheeky naming going on with their products, haha! Especially the illuminator looks so gorgeous โ™ฅ

    • I know, they really do have some rather mischievous names ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do โ™ฅ NARS! I have written a few posts about them. The illuminator is lovely, one of the best highlighters I’ve tried- some really don’t work too well but this one is impressive ๐Ÿ™‚

      Any NARS favourites? x

      • I haven’t actually tried that many NARS products yet (my student budget kind of limits me there ^.^” ) but I recently purchased the quite popular Laguna bronzer which is really amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • I haven’t tried Laguna, what’s it like? ๐Ÿ™‚ I think one of the great things about NARS products is that they are so long lasting! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

          • In my opinion, the Laguna bronzer gives you quite a natural and glowing finish! It doesn’t really have those yellow undertones to it which make some other bronzers look so strange and unnatural ^.^

          • Always great when you find a superb bronzer, I find so many do give you an orange look which is never ideal ๐Ÿ˜‰ I shall have to try the Laguna bronzer sometime ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
