It isn’t every day that you have have an international make-up superstar in your midst. But beauty dreams can become a working reality when with just one phone call meant that #TeamCLEO and Team Cosmopolitan would be working with one of the biggest names in make-up artistry.
In conjunction with their recent Radiance Repowered event, NARS had invited Uzo, the NARS Global Artistry Director in town for this launch. While she was in Malaysia, Uzo was whisked onto set and tasked to create some awe-inspiring looks made from NARS products, including the titillating new NARS Orgasm 2019 collection.
We rallied up six influencers to embody NARS, and while the moodboard was awash with beiges, blushes, orgasmic pinks and crisp whites, the girls channelled all facets of their femininity, set off against fierce pops of red, shimmery flecks of metallics, and gauzy veils of highlights which make you look twice.
Wistful and dreamy, yet powerful and bold statements, ranging from porcelain doll-skin, to glowing in the most 2020 way yet, discover the looks and how you can create them thanks to the make-up artistry of Uzo.
Nana (@nanabwincess) is tall, waif-like and modelesque, yet she proclaims, “I’m not a model!” on set. Nana cuts a wispy figure and her fine features, porcelain-like skin was the perfect canvas to show off the shimmery, peachy and blush-worthy shades of the Orgasm 2019 collection.
With this nuanced look, the shades of the new Endless Orgasm Palette are blended in a seamless smokey for a gaze that’s not overpowering, but still engages and enraptures.
As usual, skin was prepped for it to be able to glow from within. After foundation (match your shade with the NARS Natural Radiant Longwear) step out lightly, and softly does it — a radiating sheen of the Oversized Orgasm Blush is swept from the inner part of the cheek to the temples.
The finishing touch: the brand new limited edition NARS Orgasm Liquid Highlighter and for even more radiance re-lit from within, try the NARS Super Radiant Booster. For the lips, just add a sheer tint with the Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint. Packed full of Raspberry Seed Oil, this nourishing formula is not only lip-biting, but is comfortable and loves your pout from the inside as well.
