Autumnal Make-up Feat. Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint & Portobello Eyeshadow Duo

This is really just an excuse to showcase some products from Nars that I use regularly, however the tones are quite Autumnal!

This everyday make-up look starts with plenty of moisturiser and a primer. My skin is dry and believe me when I say it can look pretty crepey and dehydrated with the wrong base in the wrong light! Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint is a tinted moisturiser in a matte finish which offers light to light-medium coverage. It isn't ridiculously drying, but could cling to patches if you haven't prepped. The best application is using fingers or a sponge as I find it needs to be worked into the skin. I wear the Shade Finland which is light with a neutral- yellow undertone. This seems to subtly counteract redness. I actually prefer this to Nars' original tinted moisturiser as I prefer a matte finish to a shiny face any day of the week. This isn't the easiest (or indeed most challenging) foundation to work with, but it does a good job of unifying your complexion.

To add some dimension I turned to an old faithful: Nars Orgasm blush, which is a pinky coral with gold shimmer. For the lips, a limited edition shade called Last Tango, a peachy nude in a cream finish. 

Finally, on the eyes I went for my Portobello Nars duo eyeshadow palette. It features a light, blondey-brown colour which I wear all over the lids, and a more taupe-brown, worn in the outer crease. Both shades are matte and fairly easy to blend with plenty of pigment for lighter, neutral colours. Of course, some obligatory mascara (YSL Faux Cils) and brown eyeliner (Mac, Teddy) was applied to complete my everyday, work-friendly look. These colours work really well with green eyes and pale skin, but would look good on just about anyone to add some subtle definition.
