CONTOUR BLUSH

A LUST FOR BLUSH

NARS Cosmetics introduces Contour Blush, the ultimate essential in makeup artistry and the secret weapon to creating natural-looking definition with a luminous finish. The beautifully balanced duos feature a lighter shade to illuminate the highpoints of the face and a deeper shade to enhance definition.

Ultra-smooth, lightweight texture lends itself to a luminous finish and the specially designed contouring formula visual depth and dimension in a single swipe. To create the perfect contour on cheeks, apply the deeper shade of the Contour Blush to the hollows of the cheek and along the hairline, sweep the light shade across the cheekbone toward the temple to soften and highlight. Finish the look with a pop of your favorite blush shade on the apples of the cheek.
