NARS Blush delivers healthy-looking color that enlivens the complexion and provides a natural-looking flush to flatter any skin tone. Iconic shades include a range of translucent, natural tones, each with a subtle pink undertone for a natural-looking blush to highlight the complexion. Silky, superfine micronized powder pigments in matte and shimmering shades ensure irresistibly soft, blendable application. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. These soft, buildable shades deliver a wide range of effects, from ultra-sheer to powerful pops of color.
Notable shade includes Orgasm: Orgasm is an award-winning, artist-beloved, editor-coveted, and universally-flattering shade. It blends pinky-peach pigment with subtle golden shimmer highlights, giving cheeks the ultimate natural-looking glow.
"Cheek color shouldn't be limited to the apples (no one blushes only on their cheeks). I always blend a bit into the hairline, along the jawbone, and on the tip of the nose to create a more natural-looking, all-over hint of color." - Francois Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics
"When it comes to blush, how and where you apply it is more important than what color you use." - François Nars
"Find the apples of the cheeks by placing two fingers on the high points of the cheekbones. Start with a light-handed application and build to your desired intensity." - Francois Nars
Use a blush brush and apply to the apples of the cheeks. Sweep the excess across the hairline, bridge of the nose, and chin. For more dimension, apply a shimmer shade to the apples of the cheeks and a matte shade to the hollows of the cheeks.
The NARS Technique:
Contour: Create definition by starting at the temple and sweeping along the hairline, under the cheekbone, and down the jawline.
Highlight: Glide over areas where the sun hits naturally - the tops of the cheekbones, on temples, and on the bridge of the nose.
Pop: Swipe color onto the apples of the cheeks, and swirl in a circular motion, layering to your desired intensity.
