how to create the NARS lip for summer.

my NARS wedding look helped me realize that creating a vibrant and clearly defined lip, like the one NARS is famous for, requires not just applying one lip color, but layering complimenting (and sometimes contrasting) products to get your desired look.  this sort of precise color blending requires an artist's eye, which is why i asked NARS head artist cindy rodriguez to give me (and my readers) some lip look ideas for this summer. 

here are her suggestions:
1. for a basic, light, natural summer look, pair pure sheer SPF 15 lip treatment in lara, with velvet matte pencil in bolero, and complete the look with velvet gloss pencil in buenos aires.  cindy notes, "you can start any lip look with lara pure sheer SPF 15 lip treatment, it’s one of my favorites!"

2. for a more classic, mid-tone lip, start with lip liner pencil in borneo, fill lip in with pure matte lipstick in moscow then add just a touch of larger than life lipgloss in gold digger to the center of the lip for added dimension.

3. and finally, cindy’s signature bold lip:  "this is definitely a fashion accessory every NARS fan should have in their make-up wardrobe…schiap lipstick! I love bolero velvet matte lip pencil under every bold lip, but especially under schiap lipstick." apply velvet matte lip pencil in bolero to the center of the lip, then go over the entire lip with schiap lipstick. for a more defined lip, line with velvet matte lip pencil in never say never. 

i've only had a chance to try the third look (pictured here), but i love how defined and bright it makes my lips.  i'm hoping to gather the other NARS products needed to try out the other looks over the next few weeks.  all products can be seen (and purchased) at narscosmetics.com.
