“For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.
Besides meeting François at the NARS Loves Chicago Event (omg omg omg!!!), I also got a makeover from NARS national artist Francine Philips who works closely with Ayako. The look was picked out by Ayako herself and she suggested a “smoky eye with very pale lips” to go with my fake lashes.
Here are some goodies I got from my little meeting with Francois Nars!
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!
Besides the NARS Loves San Francisco set that I mentioned earlier, there will also be a NARS Loves Chicago set!
