More than anything, here at LiB we love to bring you the very best in beauty and for us, that comes in the form of a multi-use product – the all-rounder, the one you always need to make sure is in your ‘going out’ makeup bag. The sheer satisfaction of being able to create a flawless full glam look whilst using the same product on your eyes, lips and cheeks is unrivaled, especially when it’s one that can be used all year round.
Serving us with ultimate pigment payoff, the most multi-functional easy-to-blend formula and our favourite suits-all-tones shade is the Jumbo Lip Crayon from NARS in cult shade Dolce Vita. Bringing backstage beauty to life, NARS excels within the world of makeup innovation. With a multitude of multi-use beauty products you can always rely on this brand for performance – their formulas are long lasting and reliable and really make a difference. Read on to see how we created one of our favourite looks to date by using this crayon on eyes, lips and face.
EASY ON THE EYE
Creating a soft berry tone on the eye, this crayon was the perfect formulation for a quick and polished look. The buttery smooth formula glided onto the lid and was easy to blend out using your finger or a brush. Although the formulation felt smooth, it also had immense staying power, making for an eye look that lasted from day to night. An easy eye-opening fix that can be used as a pale hugh of dusty rose or built up to a deep, impactful maroon shade.
CHEEK TO CHEEK
Exploring different blushers is one of the major beauty trends for 2021. Whether you’re finding your perfect formula, experimenting with product placement or sifting through shades, the best blush can transform your face. The NARS lip crayon is the ideal companion for adding a slight flush to the cheeks, nose and forehead for a lifted, just-sun-kissed look that will instantly freshen up any natural or full glam look.
When using on the lips, expect complete control over shape, pigment and texture. For a smudge balm look, apply a few small swipes to the lip and blend out with your finger. If you’re looking for a defined lip but with a soft barely-there finish, line your lips first with the crayon and lightly fill in. For full impact and drama, line the lips using slightly more pressure than usual for a clear cut line, then fill in with a slightly gentler touch – you’ll have a full glam buttery-smooth matte finish in seconds.
