I am obsessed with the idea of glowing skin. I would venture it is safe to say that we all are, right? So is François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of Nars. In particular, he says, “I have always been fascinated by the way light is reflected off of healthy, beautiful skin…to see a woman’s face glow through her makeup.” As such, the new NARSskin collection is entirely focused on illuminating.
Nars is introducing a unique Light Reflecting Complex, which, all fancy skincare speak aside, basically means that the translucency of the skin gets a boost. Pair that with Light-Active Micro-Prisms, algae extract and Polynesian seawater, and voilà — a skin regimen that completely focuses on optically enhancing light reflection.
My personal picks is the Luminous Moisture Cream. It feels amazing on the skin, and provides an instant pick-me-up to make that first look in the mirror each morning slightly less daunting. Add to that the fact that it makes my makeup last longer, and lets just say it has a permanent place on my vanity.
François Nars is also a fan of the Luminous Moisturizer — his go-to is the Aqua Gel Oil-Free version, which was used at Marc Jacobs for the Fall 2012 look because “it was just the right texture, not too heavy.” Of course a makeup maestro like François Nars understands the relationship between skincare and makeup, and develops products designed to work together.
If you are in the New York area on September 20, stop by the Nars counter at Saks to meet François Nars from 5-7pm EST, who will sign copies of his book X-Ray. And get acquainted with the new NARSskin line. Your complexion will be forever grateful.
