bright lights, big color monday - nars.

some makeup lines didn't need to create any special products to accommodate the bright color trend, because big color is just a part of their identity - and nars definitely falls into this category. below i've selected my favorite bold, yet wearable shades from their colorful line:

capucine lip lacquer is described as a sheer tangerine. and that is a very good thing - because orange is huge for lips, cheeks and nails this summer. while capucine lip lacquer definitely creates an orange lip, it also has a soft hint of pink, giving a pretty, punchy color. simply pair with a shimmering neutral shadow and a black liquid liner for compliments all day long (or night long, this look can work for either). $24.

nars' considers bloodwork lip gloss to be a red vinyl, and it absolutely true to form. most red glosses have just a hint of color and have way too much pink in them, but not so with bloodwork. it is a true blue-based, color rich and vinyl-esque gloss. if you want to channel dita von teese or gwen stefani's vixen lips, there is no easier or better match. $24.

cactus flower cream blush is a shimmering poppy. now, if you want to sell me a product this summer, describe it as poppy colored (or orange) and i'm all over it. you might as well just take the money from my wallet now. poppy is in bloom, in a big way. it brings color and life to fairer skin tones. $24.

crazed blush, a raspberry red with shimmer, is one of my seasoned favorites. i have always been crazed over crazed. this color is definitely not for someone who likes a subtle look and please, please, please, be light-handed in your application. with those warnings in mind, and now beauties i would never lie to you, and men love it when i wear this blush. each time i've worn it a man has complimented my face! $25.

kitty eyeliner pencil is a turquoise blue and is the right single step to achieve summer's bright eye trend, blue rimmed eyes. contrary to popular belief, blue liner is great for blue eyes, as long as their is contrast between the shades of blue. since this blue is so different from the grey-blue hue of my peepers, it really accentuates my color. $20.

all featured products are part of the regular nars color line, available at narscosmetics.com and sephora.com.
