A highlight of the Nordstrom Fall 2011 Trend Show last weekend was receiving a makeover at Nars! One of Nars’ top national artists, Janice, did such a fantastic job with my makeup! And she was so lovely and warm, even after being on her feet for 12 hours straight! My only request was “no red lips,” which was a big part of the trend show, but not a look I personally love. She selected a metallic green eye and neutral lip, which by the way is Oprah’s signature lip by Ross Burton.

New Look with Nars: Smooth skin, metallic green eyes, nude "Oprah" lips

Metallic green on lower lid over Mykonos, a rosey brown

Products Used

  1. Liquid Foundation (apply with fingers): Sante Fe, matte finish
  2. Powder Foundation (dust over liquid to smooth uneven skintone): Barcelona
  3. Concealer (inside corner of eye and down/around eye): Ginger
  4. Creme Eyeshadow on lid: Mykonos (this shade also works well on its own)
  5. Highlighter on browbone: The Multiple in Copacabana
  6. Eyeshadow on lower lid: Star Sailor, greenish gold shade (it’s more green than in pic below); Earth Angel for a night out
  7. Eyeliner: Rue de Rivoli (this is a brighter forest green shade, but blends well with brush #15 for a natural look; I’m new to this brush but it is now a must-have in my makeup kit!)
  8. Lengthening Mascara
  9. Highlighter on cheek bone: The Multiple in Copacabana
  10. Blush: Oasis
  11. Lip Liner: Rosebud (this is the signature lip Ross Burton applies on Oprah!)
  12. Lip Color: Honolulu Honey

Nars Eye: Mykonos (top l), Star Sailor (top r), Rue de Rivoli (bottom l), Earth Angel (bottom r)

While I was getting my makeup done at Nars, my friend Ginger had an appointment with the Trish McEvoy team who gave her a pretty look that works for day or evening.
