My dream of meeting the legendary François Nars *finally* came true today! I have been a fan of François’ work for years (I bought my first NARS almost 10 years ago when I was still in high school back in Hong Kong!) and being able to meet the guru in his flesh and talk to him felt soooooo surreal! I literally felt like an obsessed Twilight fan meeting R-Pat *lol*
Here is me with the super sweet and gorgeous NARS International Makeup Director, Ayako. She gave me a few pointers for us Asian girls and also recommended a look for me.
We finally have a picture of the NARS Loves Chicago Set!
The products featured are Babylon Eyeshadow Duo
, Transformer Nail Polish
, Passion Blush
and Night Bird Single Eyeshadow
. The set will go on sale for $75 this Thursday exclusively at Barneys New York (15 East Oak Street, Chicago IL 60611). Remember to call (312) 587-1700 for the NARS counter to reserve a set!
Besides the NARS Loves San Francisco set that I mentioned earlier, there will also be a NARS Loves Chicago set!
In celebration of NARS 15th anniversary, François Nars will be making a special personal appearance at Nordstrom San Francisco Centre – signing copies of his books X-Ray and Makeup Your Mind as well as a limited-edition NARS Loves San Francisco Set.
Makeup artist Ayako working for NARS Cosmetics created a look with wispy lashes and translucent matte skin at the 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2009 show.
