These new NARS arrivals are vitamin D for your make up bag

Sunbeams requesting permission to kiss your complexion… no brand does bronzer like NARS and their latest arrivals will lend skin a glow that looks just like your face made it. The key to achieving believable warmth, these gorgeous launches – from the velvety {Matte Bronzer} to the stunning {Paradise Found Bronzing Powder} – are perfect for letting you glow your own way.

An industry icon, ‘Laguna’ now comes with a shiny new outfit – the perfect excuse for a make up bag-clearout, replace a firm fixture of every ‘face menu’ and lend cheeks a beautiful, soft-focus glow with the buttery soft {Bronzing Powder}. Or try an icon on for size with the super-cute {Mini} – a pocket-sized pan of their bestselling shade that will trigger a long-lasting love affair (this won’t be a holiday romance).

Glisten up, sun-lovers: the key to a ‘Golden Hour’ gleam, the new {Paradise Found Bronzing Powder} boasts an ombré pan of demi-matte to lustrous golden shimmer that addresses all your bronze-and-highlight needs in one exquisite compact. Resembling wave-rippled sand to transport you to paradise isles from your dressing table, we think it’s a bit like the conch of your make up collection – you hear the waves lapping as soon as you lift the chic, wave-rippled lid (*sort of*).

For those who favour linen over lamé, the {Matte Bronzing Powder} is great for achieving a natural, olive-toned tan when applied with a brush to your forehead, the bridge of your nose, cheeks and chin. Try {sun stripping} to emulate a long-weekend of lounging on the beach, then sit back and wait for a deluge of envious, ‘you look well’ comments from colleagues.

The finishing touches? We all know that summer and lip gloss were made for each other, so finish your look with a slick of the nourishing, non-sticky {Oil-Infused Lip Tint} to grant the illusion of plumped-up and pillowy lips, and upgrade your gaze with the {Powerchrome Eye Pigments} – pigment-packed shadows that lend a smooth, buildable wash of light-scattering colour for maximum impact.
