Re: Ask François Nars a beauty question! - Last Chance!

I am a HUGE fan of NARS Cosmetics! The colors are beautiful and the texture of the products make them so easy to work with.

My question to you is: I notice you are in New York a lot making appearances. Do you plan on doing appearances in any other cities this year? We would LOVE to see you in Nashville, TN!!

 

Thanks for your time!

I hope to do some traveling to promote my book (out in May 2011).  I will keep you posted!

I am looking for a VERY fair liquid foundation! I am a very pale porcelain (think Nicole Kidman) redhead, with green eyes. i have combo/oily skin. EVERY foundation i buy turns me orange! I want a true fit. What is a good foundation that you have? Also what color blush, lipstick and shadows should i wear? Thank you so much!

My favorite shade of our foundation is Siberia - a shade I created with beauties like you in mind. With fair skin, any shades can be worn - but a pop of pink (Orgasm Blush) on the cheeks, or a bold matte red (Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is always a fun contrast.

Here's my beauty conundrum: I'm color confused!

 

I have light gray eyes and dark blonde hair - a shoo-in, it seems, for colors in the cool family.  However, my skintone didn't get the memo.  I'm very fair, but with olive and yellow undertones rather than rosy overtones.  So when it comes to choosing color, what do I do?  Do I go with my cool eyes and hair or do I let my warm skin dictate the choices?

 

Thank you!

My general idea for someone whom can wear either warms and cools is to have fun.... Try mixing both undertones. Do a neutral warm brown tone on the eye (like Calanque Trio Eyeshadow) paired with a neutral cheek ( like Orgasm Blush since it has pink, peach and gold...so warm and cool). Finish your color by pairing a neutral( both warm and cool)-based Tzigane Lipstick. To add a fun accessory, add Easy lover Lip Gloss or Ophelia Lip Gloss for an added touch of "cool" tone.
