NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder

 

The NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder is one of the most raved about products from NARS. I picked this up as part of my leaving Japan birthday haul and have been using it since then.

5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

Even if you love your lippie and can’t live without mascara, it’s always refreshing to sport a natural no-makeup look from time to time. This obviously shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s all about mastering the art of ‘looking’ like you have no makeup on!

Use a light coverage BB cream or foundation for sheer coverage and a natural finish. The idea is to even out your skin and not mask it under a heavy coverage product. Use a concealer to spot correct areas that need extra coverage such as the under eyes, sun spots and blemishes.
