“Joy’s collection this season is definitely very sophisticated and tailored but still has a youthful, playful element,” said Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Artist. “I wanted the makeup to mirror the vibe: sophisticated smoky taupe-y -grey eyes with playful hints of sparkly nude-pink on the cheeks and lips.”
