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.

If you like the idea of smoky eyes but want to switch things up a bit, take a cue from Kristen Stewart by using a color that has the same undertones as your eye color. See how Kristen used a color that flashes green on the eyelid and lower eye to play up her green eyes? Here I am using a copper eyeshadow with green undertones to make my green contacts pop. More after the jump!
