NARS Spring 2017 – Wildfire Collection

NARS Spring 2017 – WILDFIRE Collection

It’s that time of the year – all the makeup brands are introducing their amazing new lineups for a fresh start to the year!

We earlier reviewed the glam-tastic MAC collaboration with Mariah Carey. The cosmetic collection was every bit as sparkly as the glittery crooning Diva herself, and we loved it! Let’s have a look at what NARS has to offer with their SPRING 2017 collection – “WILDFIRE”.

NARS WILDFIRE focuses on confident shades, bold yet earthy tones. We are loving the funky berries, dreamy violets, rosy hued earthy nudes and muted rich blues. Have a look below at what’s new at NARS!

The collection features 11 items; 2 eyeshadow duos, 2 lipsticks, 4 velvet shadow sticks, 1 powder blush and 2 lip glosses.

Eyeshadow Duos

Thessalonique –  Lovers of purple tones will love this! NARS describes the pair as “Iridescent Seashell Pink / Iridescent Violet Smoke”, which is an apt description.

Chiang Mai – Described as “Shimmering Sea Blue / Copper”. An unorthodox pair? Definitely, but we have to admit, the pair does look good together. We’d love to try it on.

MAC has recently collaborated with the highly successful chanteuse, and come out with a gorgeous collection as glitzy as the glamorous diva herself. The collection boasts of the following lineup, and our Beauty Bee is excited to walk you through it after personally having tested the items herself!

The collection is lusciously glamourous! The decorative theme is glitter, gold and silver. The shades of the items focus on nudes that would flatter mostly light to medium skin tones. If you love nudes like us, it’s definitely something to give a thought to buy. Our favorites are the eyeshadow quad in “I’m That Chick You Like“, lip pencil in “So Dramatique, lipsticks in “McIzzle” and “All I Want“… And that Skinfinish highlighter “My Mimi” is just begging to be bought!

Here’s a look at the MAC x Mariah Carey Collection (the best thing about the collection besides the glamorous packaging is awesome diva names <3 ):

NARS Fall 2016: Powerfall!

NARS Fall 2016: Powerfall!

NARS Fall 2016 collection is here, and it focuses on the most powerful message of all: ‘Accentuate. Never imitate.’

NARS Fall 2016 Header

Makeup is all about focusing on what your best features are, and how to feature more prominence on your best features. No one has eyes like yours, and the other person does not have your skin tone. Your lips accent, your cheekbones, your eye shape – they are all uniquely you!

Style Files: Lily Collins has Gorgeous Taste!

Style Files: Lily Collins has Gorgeous Taste!

Award events are entertaining occasions.  Glitzy star studded nights with lots of glamour, these events are one of the best sources of inspiration for makeup trends and fancy dresses.

Over the past few events, I can’t help but gush over how stunning Lily Collins has been strutting her stuff recently.

At the 74th Golden Globes event held yesterday, Lily Collins wore a striking dusty rose Zuhair Murad creation.

The floor length gown was a mix of lace and net, hugging her body but flaring out beautifully from the waist down. Floral embroidery and bead work accentuated the dress throughout. Harry Winston jewels were chosen to accessorize her ensemble.

The color choice complimented her skin tone perfectly, and she chose to tie her hair into an elegant braided updo. Keeping the eye makeup minimum and complexion glowing and bright with just a hint of blusher, she finished the look with strong brows and a bold, matte red lip. It couldn’t be any more perfect!

It takes us back to the last time she stole our hearts at an event – The 22nd Critics’ Choice Awards, where Lily Collins stepped out wearing the perfect lacey Elie Saab Haute Couture gown.

The sleek figure hugging lace gown had a Victorian inspired neckline studded with Swarovski, and flaring billowy sleeves. She accessorized with Chanel jewels, but it was the contrasting makeup she chose to wear that really made her stand out.

A metallic bordeaux lip and earthy inspired eye palette contrasted with the pale ash grey-green gown, making her eyes and flawless skin strikingly captivating. Collins finished her look by keeping her hair loosely knotted at the nape of her neck, strands framing her face; the combination of bordeaux and earthy browns in her makeup palette highlighting her eyes and sun kissed strands of her hair.

We’ll definitely be storing these two excellent showings in our event attire inspiration books!

 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review | Just4Girls.pk

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review

Matte lipstick has made a huge comeback this past year, and is going to continue to reign in 2017. Every makeup brand from Wet n’ Wild to Dior has jumped on the opportunity to create the perfect matte lip. Even though I love the above mentioned makeup brands there has been one clear standout matte lipstick for me – NYX. Not only did they crush the competition with the formula of their matte lipstick but also created the most diverse range of colors.

NYX Berlin Just4Girls.pk

With the winter months still brewing around for a while, I am continuously inspired by the dark rich colors that are associated with it. All I have been wearing for the holiday season are shades like: deep burgundies, burnt oranges, and rich umbers.

In particular a shade of umber that is my absolute favorite is Berlin, a soft matte cream by NYX. This deep warm hue accents not only my eyes but also the sun kissed parts of my hair. The best part of this matte lipstick is that it transitions perfectly from day to night. The lightweight formula does not smudge and stays on for hours! I really have to commend NYX for enabling me to create the flawless matte lips.

NYX Berlin J4G

Don’t miss out on your chance of wearing Berlin this winter and being a sure standout! Available now in Pakistan exclusively on Just4Girls.pk.
