So a few weeks ago, NARS hosted an event at their Bleecker Street location to showcase their fall/autumn 2012 colour collection as well as their new skincare line, NARSskin.  I wrote about the details of the skin collection here.

NARS Fall/Autumn 2012 colour collection

New NARS skincare line!

Check out a gorgeous smokey eye done by makeup artist Miguel, using various items from the fall collection.

The finished product!

I love the crease colour, which is the New York single eye shadow, which is a really nice transition colour.  On the lid he used the purple colour from the High Society trio and some of the green in crease as well.  I’m definitely going to recreate this!  Oh, and Miguel used the new Optimal Brightening Concentrate, tinted moisturizer and spot concealer  on the skin!  I love the glow that this combo gives and the coverage is light!

Great makeup must include great skincare!  Take care of your skin!
