[Tips & Tricks] Sweet Summer with Nars Adult Swim - Summer 2014 Collection...


Still remember my Nars Week series last month? Yes, you get it right, I'm still not over Nars & don't think I'll ever be, lol Tell me who on the right mind can resist the fun & fabulous line up they came up with every seasons? Not me obviously... Looking at Nars Adult Swim - Summer 2014 collection, I feel like seeing a cosmetics interpretation of synchronized swimming!!! Everything is striking, captivating & fascinating, complete with some interesting combination I never think of =)

Instead of just reviewing it, this time around I'm very much inspired and wanna incorporated the summer spirit by creating 2 different looks based on my 2 alter ego; Sweet Summer / Sweet Ayna & Sexy Summer / Sexy Ayna, hihi =P I guess I'm neither sweet nor sexy and the best thing I can hope for is pretending to be both XD So in this post lovelies, I'm gonna spill my secret on how I can fool someone into thinking I'm a sweet girl by using stuff from Nars Adult Swim - Summer 2014 collection @_@


Since Nars didn't include blushers and lipsticks in their Nars Adult Swim - Summer 2014 collection, I'm using Nars Blush in Amour & Nars Sheer Lipstick in Mayflower that I previously blog about to achieve the Sweet Summer / Sweet Ayna look. For the eyes, I choose to play with Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow and Nars Baalbek Eye Paint from Nars Adult Swim - Summer 2014 collection. I don't know why but they seems to fit each other perfectly, don't you feel the same way too?

Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow 
4g [RM120.00] 
★★★

According to Nars Cosmetics, the Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow is a modern yet unique color combination [golden pewter + lilac snow] that can be worn alone or together and feature micro fine powders that's highly pigmented, longwearing and crease resistant. With colours that glides on smoothly and blends effortlessly, you can go from subtle to smouldering by using this fashion forward pairing! It's also multifunctional; you can shade, line or highlight your eyes with this duo eyeshadow.

Nars Baalbek Eye Paint 
2.5g [RM95.00] 
★★★

Nars Baalbek Eye Paint on the hand is described as a brilliant pot of high impact bronze pigment in an innovative silky, weightless gel formula. Rich, hyper saturated shades that dry down quickly in long lasting finishes from icy metallics to matte, this product can line, highlight, shade and define with modern artistic versatility. Last for up to 18 hours, you can be bold and use it alone or layer it with different texture eyeshadows to create intensity you desire.


MY VERDICT : When I use the Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow for the first time, I beginning to think it's a lost cause for me... The colours didn't show up well and looks quite chalky on my eyelids... Then I remember that I didn't wear any eye primer beforehand and try applying it again! Voila, the shades finally make an appearance although not as pigmented as I want it to be, still looks pretty good to me =) I like the fact that the powdery texture is easy to work with & great for highlighting.

But the star here is definitely Nars Baalbek Eye Paint! It really deliver in terms of giving longlasting, intensely pigmented colour that can multifunction as an eyeliner or eyeshadow. The golden-like particles that comes with it makee it looks even more gorgeous up close I'm in love with its fluid, creamy consistency that fortunately make this eye paint very easy to control. I can see myself using this on daily basis, it's an edgier alternative from the plain black liner =P


How I'm using Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow and Nars Baalbek Eye Paint to create my Sweet Summer / Sweet Ayna look? It's very simple actually, even non makeup users can pull off this look without breaking a sweat!!! Here's the guide on how to achieve this look :-


STEP 1 : Prime your eyes with your favorite eye primer
STEP 2 : Apply the Golden Pewter shade from Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow all over your eyelids
STEP 3 : Use the Lilac Snow shade from Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow on your lower lashline
STEP 4 : Line your upper lashline with Nars Baalbek Eye Paint
STEP 5 : Complete the eye-do by coating your lashes with black mascara
STEP 6 : Sweep Nars Blush in Amour lightly on your cheeks
STEP 7 : Finish the look with Nars Sheer Lipstick in Mayflower


What do you think of the look, am I sweet enough for you? Well, I'm very happy with how it turns out, it's soft & wearable just the way I like it ^_^ You can glam it up by adding more Nars Baalbek Eye Paint or tone it down by switching the role of shades from Nars Lost Coast Duo Eyeshadow instead.
