Now there’s makeup brushes and then there are NARS makeup brush. As Francois Nars once said, “You cannot achieve good makeup without good tools.” NARS brushes will help you achieve a flawless finish to rival that of any makeup professional. The new Artistry Brush Collection consists of 16 brushes, 4 for the face which help you refine, blend and conceal, 2 cheek brushes to help you sculpt, contour and highlight, 9 eye brushes to help you line, define and blend, and 1 lip brush to help you smooth, colour and define.

What makes NARS brushes stand out is that they are not only made from the finest quality hairs, but that they are delicately weighted and sit perfectly in your hand as you apply your makeup. All too often I’ve used makeup brushes which are uncomfortable to hold and make it hard to achieve the finish you want. NARS brushes make applying your makeup a breeze. My top 3 picks from the collection are the Blush Brush, Brow Defining Brush and Bronzing Powder Brush.

Winter is well and truly here which means if your skin is anything like mine, it can look dull and lifeless. Enter NARS contour blush, your new secret weapon to creating natural-looking definition with a natural glowing, luminous finish. Transforming your face has never been easier. The easy to use palette means you can apply your blush with a single swipe.

Use the deeper shade on the hollow of your cheek and along the hairline to add definition and sweep the lighter shade across your cheekbone toward the temple to highlight. The formula is ultra-smooth, lightweight and long-lasting.
