I have no patience. Its barely the end of August and I am Autumn ready. Well, its hardly summer weather so why wait with my makeup? So far I have restrained myself from wearing the berry lips already, but after a little Nars at House of Fraser browse I have been wearing berry in another form for my slightly punctual autumn look.
First up, like anyone who likes Nars foundation, their Sheer Glow Foundation in Deauville (£31) is naturally what I use to help even out my skin, and I can see why this bottle gets so much hype now. On the days when I am not being lazy, my already autumn-esque skin (aka dry, flakey and dull) really benefits from the use of their Light Optimizing primer. And to make me look a bit of life-full? Their blush in Unlawful.
Eye wise is where my berry tone have snuck in, and I have finally been pulled away from my Urban Decay Naked palette and fall for the Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Kuala Lumpur (£25). Not sure of the relation of a Rose Gold & Boysenberry infused with gold eyeshadow and the Malaysian capital, but when a shadow is this pretty it really doesn't matter. I just smudged the darker berry colour under my lash line to show it off more. And why did no one tell me to try Nars's eyeshadows sooner? As I am not sure what I prefer, the colours or the pigmentation.
To finish the look, I finally jumped on this Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil bandwagon with the shade Belle De Jour (£19). This pencil was made for smoky eyes - fact. The beige tones give that cliched 'your lips but better look', and also perfect for when you need to photograph the most awkward pout in the world (see above...).
