NARS makeover by John Lewis

Today I want to share with you the wonderful world of NARS. Francois Nars is a legend in the make-up world, he reinvented Madonna and works closely with all the top fashion designers during Fashion Week's around the Globe.
I took a trip down the John Lewis' fabulous Beauty Hall (on the Ground Floor) to talk to Make-Up artist Clayton all about NARS and of course grab a make-over while I was at it!
We started with skincare - there is a massive world of skincare out there that literally did wonders for me before we had even began. The previous night was a late one for me so I desperately needed something to disguise the bags under my eyes and awaken my skin. We used Multi-Action Hydrating Toner with Optimal Brightening Concentrate to refresh my skin followed by Total Replenishment Eye-Cream to fully wake-up my tired eyes. I felt amazing and like I could re-start my day all over again!
Next came the make-up. I'm very pale for after using a Pore Refining Primer, to make the foundation stay on longer and make it look alot smoother, I got a chance to use the new Cream Compact foundation in Siberia which comes in its own little compact including a sponge and mirror. The foundation is 12g which is alot more than most cream foundations give out and the best part is - it's refillable which means saving you money in the long-run.
I couldn't go to NARS without using THE mother of all make-up products, the best selling blush in the world - Orgasm.
On my eyes we used the gorgeous Goddess and Kuala Lumpur Duo and then my favourite product, that I just couldn't resist leaving without - the Carpates Eye-Liner Stylo. I've never used what is essentially a pen to apply my eye-liner befoe but I can tell you now I am never going back! It's so easy and once it's on and dried - it ain't coming off!
The look was finished off with the newest lip colour from the NARS Fall collection - La Paz. A subtle plum colour that didn't clash with my pink hair!
If you fancy a NARS make-over then there is an amazing event happening on the 29th and 30th of October at the John Lewis Beauty Hall Counter, where you can get a one-hour long make-over by the NARS top national make-up artists Federico Gregorini and Benoir Dumont. It is £25 deposit and this is then redeemable against any product.
To book in just pop down the the Beauty Hall NARS Counter and confirm your place - be quick as this is sure to sell-out!
