It’s finally summer! One wonders if it was ever going to get here with the weather being so off and on– one wonders whether bronzer is the thing to wear when it’s pouring rain outside. Luckily with the SUPERNATURAL Collection from NARS Cosmetics, it’s more than just bronzes and golden hues.

This lovely collection allows you to go sheer and neutral courtesy of the fabulous colors or very dramatic for evening or during vacation daytime. It allows you to play with both demure and bewitching looks.
When you are going daytime, think of the 2 cream shadows on the far left:

Pearl Beach– a soft irridescent sheer lilac/lavender cream that will slide easily over lids and give you an ethereal glow– perfect for daytime. Want a bit more drama?

Depending on the eye color– and the depth of color you want– line with indigo color and use the deeper purple shade in the outer V/crease of the eye. Or do the reverse for a more unique look particularly if you are wearing blue or have blue eyes. It will make them pop. Make sure you do a fine line with a tiny brush for the liner close to the lashes and slightly smudge into lashes (not up, but down into lashes) to fill in the gaps between lashes. Make sure to use a blender brush to smooth out the edges.
Looking for a more neutral look — try Granada cream shadow– a soft shimmer light golden bronze for that soft neutral that will wipe out any shadows.

If you are looking for a neutral eye but with more definition, you can combine the cream with Stage Beauty or use it by itself. No matter how you use this duo–with the deeper color on the lid or in the crease or as a liner with the lighter color as an all-over wash, the look will be clean yet sophisticated.

Don’t forget to give a bit of glow to the cheeks.
Use Gueule de Nuit for a peachy-coral glow. The creamy texture melts into your skin for a "lit within" glow and dust either Orgasm or Sertao lightly over this and blend.

For lips choose whatever color you want or if you want that gilded, glistening look, try the Caraibe a golden shimmer that blends well over nude lips or over any other color to neutralize it and give it that shimmer.

The entire collection is versatile and look at it from a larger perspective as using it in conjunction with other colors to soften, define or ramp up the look.
So before FALL 06 comes out in a couple weeks, make sure you stock up on these shades you will use now that the temperatures are simmering and the summer is here!
