Perfect pink. Blush rose with Nars


{Taos blush and Niagara lipstick by Nars}

When I interviewed celebrity make-up artist, Francessca Tolot, she mentioned that pink — and lots of it — will be the shade of the summer. I loved how enthusiastic she was about taking the colour and not being afraid to play with the shades. Pink lips, pink cheeks, pink eyes. I tend to stick to coral colours but I thought I’d experiment with blues and greens and pinks this Spring and Summer.

I recently purchased the Nars Taos blush and Niagara lipstick which were the perfect, pink addition to my make-up drawers. Taos features golden specks which a slight bronzy hue almost making it more red of a redder shade but it works so well with pink lips. It’s almost as if whatever you wear on your lips is brought out in the blush. It goes on extremely strong so you have to tread lightly with this one.

The Lipstick is a stunning berry pink which looks more rose in real life on my brown-tinted lips, than it does in the image. I love the quality of Nars products and find that they sit well on the skin and for quite some time, too.
