NarsPure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, ¥290
The Effortless Base
While some tinted moisturisers are best suitable to the summer, this iconic formula works seamlessly all year round thanks to the buildable coverage. “I always recommend warming the product up in your hands and using your fingers to apply,” says Jenny Smith, NARS Global Makeup Artist. “You can always add another layer if you need extra coverage in particular areas.”
NarsRadiant Creamy Concealer, ¥216
The Go-To Concealer
If you’re looking for buildable, long-wearing coverage that never looks cakey, your search is over. “This is my go-to concealer as it really does live up to its name,” says makeup artist Nikita Baffour. “The coverage is medium-to-full and it has a super creamy consistency that feels lightweight on your skin.” We use it to conceal dark circles, blemishes and any uneven skin tone.
NarsClimax Extreme Mascara, ¥194
The Lash-Boosting Mascara
“You can achieve instant volume with just one coat,” NARS’ lead artist, Rachel Hardie promised us, and she wasn’t wrong. The ribbed bristle brush grabs every lash, including the shorter, finer ones, and stretches them for impressive length and definition. “The latex finish allows for a smooth, even application from root to tip so it’s never clumpy,” adds Rachel.
NarsMatte Bronzing Powder, ¥264
The Cheek Defining Bronzer
NARS Laguna Bronzer has icon status in the beauty industry thanks to the natural-looking bronzed glow it gives. Earlier this summer the brand gave it a slight refresh in the form of a matte finish. Swept across the high points of your face, this finely milled bronzer leaves you with a healthy, well-rested radiance. “If you have oily skin, the matte version will work particularly well for you,” adds NARS’ global artist Vincent Ford.
NarsAfterglow Lip Balm, ¥202
The Lip Plumping Balms
These high-shine, sheer lip balms are another NARS staple thanks to their non-sticky finish and impressive variety of shades to suit all skin tones. “They are perfect for giving a subtle wash of colour, while also keeping your lips hydrated and plump all day,” says Rachel.
