Is your skin suffering in these harsh weather conditions? Are the effects of the Christmas Markets beginning to take its toll? Then NARS have got the answer to all your skin problems with their fantastic range of exclusive Light Reflecting products.
The range has been created by NARS and is totally free from Silicone, Paraben’s, Alcohol and Oils, which makes it extra gentle on your skin and the results are amazing! The exclusive complex is infused with minerals and anti-aging, cellular metabolism-boosting elements which enhance the skin’s natural luminosity, because François Nars knows that ‘the best skin in skin that can reflect light.’
“For makeup to look its best skin needs to be as smooth and hydrated and radiant as possible. All our Nars skin care products contain a light reflective complex (unique and exclusive to Nars) that helps skin reflect light and look its radiant best!” Karen Bielli.
In our one-to-one session with Karen Bielli, NARS Make-Up Stylist, she explained the importance to our winter skin care regime and told us that the best two skin care products for this season. The Multi-Action Hydrating Toner, £22, is a hero product for winter, as it exfoliates and refreshes the skin for a smooth and brightened appearance, removing any evidence of too much mulled wine.
The second must have product is the Aqua Gel Luminous Mask, £27, which provides hydration to the skin. The moisturiser must be applied before bed and is left on over night, meaning you wake up with beautiful radiant skin. It can also be used in the day time; for a quick fix, leave the mask on for 10 minutes then blot off any excess before using toner.
Not only does their skin care contain the exclusive technology formula, their Radiant Cream Compact Foundation does too! The foundation, £28, which comes in 20 shades to suit all skin tones, is lightweight and easy to apply with the sponge that is included, to create a luminous, healthy glow. Karen also explained to us that you often need to change the colour of your foundation in the winter, so if you need advice on choosing the right foundation for the party season, NARS at Selfridges are offering 20minute complimentary appointments to answer all your skin care queries and match you up with your perfect foundation.
This season, NARS have also teamed up with controversial French Photographer, Guy Bourdin to create a limited edition collection of make up and gift sets, with equally controversial and evocative innuendo names including, Crime of Passion, Voyeur, Fling, Splendor in the Grass and Beautiful Stranger.
