What will be joining my Natura Bisse sunscreen and waterproof Chanel eyeliner in my bag of summer necessities? All I have to say is kudos to NARS for giving us the perfect summer vacation companion. What could be better than a bronzer, blusher, and highlighter all in one sporty-sleek zippered compact that’s just perfect to toss in your tote or beach bag? Add single swipes of mascara and lip gloss, and you’ve got the total gorgeous beachside glow.
NARS’ bronzers are the best – they’re never too tangerine or at all streaky. Easily blend-able “Laguna” is just deep enough to instantly tan your complexion (whereas “Casino” is only for the truly tanned), but not so intense as to risk that orange mask look. I use the highlighter under my brow bone and along my upper cheekbone for a radiant, natural shimmer. And “Orgasm” blush is self-explanatory! The glowing pink-peach is famously universally flattering (and with a name like that no wonder Francoise Nars enforces the idea that this isn’t just makeup, it’s a lifestyle!). This Blush Bronzer Trio – three elements working in perfect harmony – will keep me and my visage company at the beach this summer! At Barneys New York for $55.
