Product spotlight…NARS – that saucy French brand…

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.”

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.

First wedding of 2015…

Today I had the enormous privilege of doing the bridal makeup for a truly lovely lady.  Sarah was marrying her Australian beau with a city wedding in Southampton, where Sarah is originally from.  The couple had spent a lot of time planning this special day, with the Groom even drawing up a spreadsheet with times, names and numbers so that everyone was super organised.  However, he didn’t plan on five women all needing hair & makeup done – oh and having a giggle with a glass of bubbly!  Needless to say we had 10 minutes to spare for Sarah to put on her wedding gown and get to the church on time!!

Sarah wanted an elegant, natural makeup to match her beautiful Parisian-like features, with just a hint of colour along the crease of the eye and adding definition with false eyelashes.  Sarah also wanted to keep the lips light and bridal pink, so I used Bobbi Brown lip liner in Pale Pink and lipstick in Pale Mauve.  I also added a hint of contour with Nars Laguna Bronzer and blusher in Orgasm.

I loved working with Sarah and her wonderful family, and wish her all the best in her married life…with plenty of cats!
