From PR:

A new object of fascination. Inspiration. Pure transformation.

 For Spring 2015, NARS Cosmetics introduces the new Dual-Intensity Blush. Featuring NARS’ exclusive Translucent Prismatic Technology, the newly- imagined formula allows for multi-dimensional effects with a uniquely weightless, luxurious texture. Six modern shade pairings curated by François Nars offer a universal spectrum of hues that works across all skintones.

 Sweeps on dry for a bold flush or wet for a translucent wash of color. Dry pigments impart a natural glow that warms the complexion and fuses weightlessly. Dampen NARS’ exclusive Wet/Dry Blush Brush before application for a watercolor effect—dab over the apples of the cheeks and swirl in a circular motion to paint on a subtle tint.

 Designed in a sensorial, soft-touch square case with a modern magnetic closure, six luxuriously embossed duos heighten the art of transformation.

Ava DuVernay’s look at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes

I am a huge fan of Ava and was so thrilled to see her at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards show. She was by far one of my best dressed that night……everything was working, the navy dress, the makeup and the locs in an updo!

Speaking of makeup, I was thrilled to see that her makeup was done by international makeup artist Uzo and NARS cosmetics. She looked gorgeous!

Here’s a breakdown of the look and an inspiration:

The Inspiration

“The look was about a woman in a position of power. Ava’s statement-making makeup was kept soft and ethereal to balance her bold hairstyle and architectural Zac Posen gown. I created a velvety, smoky chocolate eye and soft neutral shades for her cheeks and lips.”

Her hairstyle was done by celebrity natural hairstylist Felicia Leatherwood and I loved this! Basically, if I had locs, I would want them to look like hers!
