By 02:20 , ,

So whats everyone been talking about in KL over the past few days? NARS Cosmetics finally opened its first store in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur! Definitely something to be super excited about! Attending the launch party is all cool and stuff but what's more awesome is getting some face time with NARS Cosmetics Global Lead Artist, Jane Richardson.

NARS must have blushers

I had a make over session on Saturday at the NARS store and learned quite a bit in that 10 minutes I had with Jane. The first thing she said when she looked at me was, "You look like a Phillip Lim kind of girl!". I was like, "Noo.. I love Phillip Lim!!". Perfect much?

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013

According to Jane, with my features I don't really need to have on a full face make up. My brows were perfect for this season and the style will go into Spring 2014. The straight boy brows are in! Great for a Phillip Lim look by the way. So Jane suggested I go with the 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 Runaway look created by NARS. Bold brows, bold lips and clean eyes and cheeks ie nude eyes or no colour at all, no mascara, no liner. I was game! A tip from Jane: Don't be afraid to miss out something! I personally stand by this, because I leave things out a lot. Sometimes I just don't have time but sometimes it's just what the look needs.

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 Look

With NARS, it's always 50% skin 50% makeup. So Justin, the makeup artist assigned to me started me off with NARS skincare range which worked surprisingly well on my skin. When it came to choosing the foundation, I opted for the Sheer Matte range as I have oily skin. Justin swatched 3 colours on my cheek. Completely ruled out Barcelona as I had already tried it on a few days earlier and found it was too dark. So this time I went with Stromboli which turned out to be a really good match even after it oxidised!

Justin lightly sweeped a nude shade on my lids which brightened up lids a tad. For my brows, there was no creating arches. It was about keeping it as natural as possible. I haven't done that in a very long while but it looked good. On my lips, a similar colour that was used for the 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 Runaway look - lined and filled with African Queen which is a warm brick-red and layered with Fire Down Below, a pure blood red with no blue or orange. The result, rich chocolate red lips which looked fantastic! A bold one, not for the faint-hearted. Loved it! That was it, I looked all made up sans too many colours.

Jane in action

It was really refreshing to try something different. I wanted to get the colours used on my lips but wasn't too sure if I would go out with it often enough. So I opted for the Radiant Creamy Concealer and Sheer Matte Foundation which I can only get my hands on in two weeks. They ran out of my shade. *sigh*...
