NARS // Modern Autumn Makeup

A few weeks ago, I mentioned my love for NARS makeup and posted a makeup look using some of the NARS products I have. Today I decided to create another makeup look using some different products. I really wanted to use my new Audacious Lipstick in Janet so decided to create a Modern Autumn makeup look.

I used NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly over my dark undereye circles and then applied NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Siberia to the rest of my face. Both of these are full coverage so you can really improve the look of your skin with these. I just love how they are a great match for my skintone too. It can be difficult to find foundations that are light enough for my skin.

I then applied the silky, smooth NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base over my eyelids to prep them for my eyeshadow. This really does increase the longevity of my eye makeup as well as creating a smooth base to apply it on. I applied the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto all over the lid, blending it out around the edges. I would describe this as a grown-up silver shade and I love the finish of it. It's metallic with a finely milled shimmer in it. It's beautiful and there's no fallout.

I applied non-NARS mascara and brow gel as I'm yet to own any products from NARS in those categories. For blush, I chose the NARS Blush in Gaiety, a gorgeous rosy pink shade. It looks like a super bright, Barbie pink in the pan but I find it goes on deeper and more subtle than that. It adds a natural flush of colour that looks like I've just stepped outside on a cold, crisp day.

The final product that I used is the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Janet. I picked this as it's a gorgeous berry shade that's perfect for Autumn. When I posted this on Instagram, I got so many likes compared to my other photos so I'm guessing this is a popular choice! I'm loving this formula as it's really pigmented but it has a gorgeous satin finish that is really long lasting and comfortable on the lips. I really need to add more of these Audacious Lipsticks to my collection!

I hope you like my Modern Autumn look. I love it so much as I think I suit lighter shades on my eyes and it's a nice refreshing change to pair a lighter metallic eye with flushed cheeks and a berry lip.
