Black & White with a PoP of NARS

Remember when I said here, that I could never see myself using any colors from the Nars Sp '13 collection? Well, I called on my girl Jennifer at Scott Miller to teach me a thing or two...

I'm convinced! Thanks to Jennifer I'm no longer afraid of big bold makeup collections. She did agree that the papricka shadow would be hard to pull off and the sangria blush is slightly harsh for fairer skin tones, but the soft baby pinks would be a perfect match. And they were. We went a little outside the collection and added a Nars smokey gray shadow to the crease, which prevented "albino tired eyes" Ahh Yes...So that's the description I'm always searching for when I pull an all pink lid. My favorite part of this look is how she added the cyan shadow as a liner to the bottom lash line and combined it with black. 

I wanted to pair this beauty look with classic black and white. Black and white pieces are something everyone has in their closets. I promise. Go look. See, I was right. I'm either psychic or have been snooping around your house. OK, maybe you wanna go lock your doors now. Stay tuned for another b&w look. There might be a tutu involved.
