I always have a little giggle whenever I’m at a wedding showcase and couples have a look through my pro kit, suddenly coming across my Nars products to see their faces when reading the provocative names on the back! Nars are definitely not shy when it comes to naming their iconic shades, with titles such as “Orgasm,” “Deep Throat,” “Striptease,” and “Sex Machine.” NARS “Orgasm” blush is one of the company’s best-selling products, and it’s easy to see why with it’s gorgeous highly pigmented colour. It does get me every-time though when the mother of the bride has a look as well and I hear an “Oh my!”
So it’s of no surprise that the brand is of course French. With François Nars being the founder of this beautifully saucy art house. François is actually one of my personal influences as a Makeup Artist as not only is he highly skilled, but he took his frustration of there not being the right products for him on the market to creating a global makeup brand for all Makeup Artists to use. Today Nars remains as the artistic director, in-house photographer, and copywriter for his brand.
