Wow, it feels like spring here this week! We’ve got sunshine, it’s a little warmer and I was actually tempted to leave home without a jacket yesterday.
It is also Nordstrom beauty week and I’m really excited to be partnering with Nordstrom at the Somerset Collection to share some of my favorite products that you need to rush out and get in store this week. I got to work with the NARS team and check out some of their latest launches that are going to be the perfect additions to your summer beauty routine.
Everything that I’m sharing today is available (while it lasts!) at the NARS counter at Nordstrom at the Somerset Collection and comes with a fabulous gift with purchase! You can also call to order anything at 248 816 5100, #ext 1424 and ask for Evie.
Best in Bronze
I mentioned it the other day but I’m SO pale right now from winter and just general sun avoidance (for anti-aging/wrinkling/sun safety purposes), so I need to get a little help with some summery color.
I think a lot of people have tried and loved the NARS Laguna Bronzer, myself included. NARS has just launched a few brand new products that really elevate that Laguna bronze we all love. First of all, there is now a Laguna Liquid Bronzer and it is AMAZING. It’s one of those effortless beauty products that you can wear in a few different ways. I use a foundation brush to apply it as I would regular bronzer or a super light contour (as well as I can contour). You can also mix it with your foundation to create a more summer tan shade. As far as makeup weight, it is really weightless and perfect for summer skin.
There is also now a Laguna Body Tint that you’ll want to immediately throw into your vacation makeup bag. It has SPF 30 in it, which is amazing, but it just adds a light summery glow to your skin and would look so good with a tan (whether fake or real). It is really great to wear on your arms and chest with strappy dresses or tanks and it also has a light scent that just smells like summer. It’s safe to say that this one is my favorite!
Finally, there’s this Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer. It’s got a “blurring technology” so it is really soft and light – perfect for fresh summer skin. It’s really great paired with the Highlighting Blush (in Hot Sand). I love the highlighter on my cheek bones and it makes me feel beachy and glory.
The new color collection collaboration from NARS and Charlotte Gainsbourg is so cool girl chic and you won’t want to miss it. Charlotte Gainsbourg is French and she’s an artist and mother and she has an effortlessly fresh style.
You all know how much I love versatile products, whether it be clothing or in beauty, right? Well, one of my favorite multi-tasking beauty products is the NARS Multiple. I have the new one from this collection in the shade Jo, and it is super light, pink and pretty. It’s like a light flush that you’d get from a little summer sun.
Last but not least is lips! The Lip Tint colors from this collection are really rich and pretty. I have one in the color Ephelide and it is a mauve-y pink (that happens look really great when your’e wearing the Laguna Liquid Bronzer!). There’s also a really great red if you love a good red lip!
One Last Thing
Before I go, I can’t forget to tell you about the HUGE beauty event this Saturday. It’s a full fashion show complete with beauty trends and a morning of pampering, special promotions and giveaways in the beauty department. It’s also the perfect time to grab a last minute Mother’s Day gift for mom (or for yourself!). The event is from 8-11 and tickets are $20. When you get there you’ll be able to redeem your ticket for $20 to use in the beauty department.
To order anything or to reserve your tickets for the event, you can call the store at 248 816 5100 #ext 1424 and you’ll want to ask for Evie who will be so happy to help you!
