HEADS UP: Nars 2010 Holiday Collection Unleashed.
To the delight of cosmetics connoiseurs everywhere, make-up maven Nars has unleashed it’s 2010 Holiday Collection and she’s nothing if not festive. Inspired by his muse Daphne Guinness, Creative Director and Founder of Nars, Francois Nars set out to create an “audaciously bold” color pallet that speaks of “seduction and self-expression”.
Think smoldering, cobalt-rimmed eyes and peach glazed cheeks and lips, and you’ll get a mental glimpse of the overall effect. Mr. Nars utilizes traditional saturated color that speaks to the holiday season, such as gold and silver and a variety of plummy berry shades – most of them flecked with festive shimmery effects.
Well-known for pushing the color envelope, Nars Holiday Collection utilizes the best of sexy feminine hues (such as the peachy blush and lipstick) and strikingly dramatic colors (like the Okinawa Trio Eyeshadow featuring a saturated shimmering blue and a matte true black).
Ms. Guiness also appears in the 2010 Holiday Collection campaign. According to François, “when you have Daphne Guinness as a model, you just let her be who she is. Daphne fits the brand so well –she has such a modern approach to fashion and beauty.”
In true Nars form, the Holiday Collection embodies the feel of it’s fearless muse and provides the pallet to explore our own dramatic-side as well. Beauty without boundaries – indeed.
