The campaign—photographed by François Nars—features model Daria Strokous in an image that fuses futurism, design and beauty.
To achieve the campaign look from the NARS Holiday 2014 Collection, prepare skin with Light Optimizing Primer SPF15 to create a seamless canvas. For a luminous complexion, gently press Siberia All Day Luminous Powder Foundation into skin. Dust away excess powder with the Loose Powder Brush #10. Apply Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla under eyes or where needed to blur imperfections, blend using the Cream Blending Brush #12 to even out skin tone. Using the Blush Brush #20, lightly sweep Almería Blush in the hollows of the cheeks to warm the complexion. Press Opal Coast Hardwired Eyeshadow over the eyelids, blending up toward the browbones for an iridescent white base. Apply Interstellar Eye Paint to the inner corners of the eyes using the Cream Blending Brush #12. Dab the excess eye paint along the lower lash lines. Define the upper lash lines with Via Veneto Larger Than Life® Long Wear Eyeliner. Finish the eyes with two coats of Larger than Life® Volumizing Mascara. Line and fill the lips with Nihiwatu Velvet Lip Liner for a rich base. Outline and coat lips with Deadly Catch Hardwired Lipstick, blend using the Precision Lip Brush #30.
