NARS Holiday 2011 Gifting

For Holiday 2011, NARS introduces Modern Kabuki, a collection of specially designed gifts for the ardent makeup aficionado, inspired by François Nars’ travels throughout Japan, his deep interest in Japanese culture, and his fascination with Kabuki makeup. The collection captures the exquisite artistry of Japan’s Kabuki theater. Every detail is a vibrant, modern, iconic interpretation of the centuries-old dramatic form.

Hanamichi Kabuki-Inspired Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00) (

Japanese for “flower path,” this Kabuki theater walkway that extends into the audience was the inspiration for this eyeshadow palette, featuring a Kabuki-themed design and accompanied by a mini Kabuki Eye Brush.

Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Taylor Swift at MET Ball 2011

May 4th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

At the MET Ball 2011, Taylor Swift wore her signature red lip with a dramatic smoky eye. Get the breakdown straight from Covergirl makeup artist Lorrie Turk after the jump!

To perfect her beautiful skin, I used Covergirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation. It leaves her skin dewy, but not shiny–I love the finish of this foundation. To hide any shadows underneath her eyes, I patted on Covergirl TRUconceal Concealer. I finished her skin by lightly brushing on Covergirl TRUblend Pressed Powder.

First, I started on her eyes, brushing on Covergirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows in Golden Sunrise from the lash line to the crease. Then, I applied Brown Smolder from her crease to just below her brow, which gives a very natural, yet dramatic look to the eye. Also, I used Snow Blossom in the inner corner of her eyes to add highlight. I lined the top of her eyes with Covergirl LiquiLine Blast Eyeline in Brown Blaze and smudged it up a bit, and to add more depth just at the lash line. I followed with Covergirl LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black.On the bottom lash line, I used Covergirl LiquiLine Blast Eyeliner in Brown Blaze and followed with a little of the Brown Smolder Shadow to smoke it up a bit. To finish the eyes, I used several coats of Covergirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara in Very Black for a super glamorous look.

I used Covergirl TRUblend Minerals Blush in Shimmering Sands – it gives a shimmery flush of color, which is very pretty.

For dramatic and long lasting lip color, I used Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor in Tempt — this is such a beautiful wine color.
