NARS Palm Beach Bronzer! Try a Charlize Theron Bronze Effect & More!

30 May

Yes, I’ve been on the planet and YES, I’d heard of NARS, however for some reason I’ve never tried their products.  Until attending the MakeUp Show NYC with my daughter a couple of weeks ago.

My daughter, Camille works for a French based company which provides the latest nutrients and formulas for many of the top cosmetic firms; so she is very familiar with their products …..NARS Cosmetics has been proven to be the best!

I just love a bronze effect and have tried many products to get that glow look!

I thought I was achieving the look, until I was introduced to NARS at the Makeup Show NYC.

First let me say, the representatives were absolutely professional and very helpful; in particular this wonderful gentlemen named Arthur Boston, NARS National Makeup Stylist.

Amongst all the mayhem of music pumping, crowds, lines for a day’s end and not to mention the high energy level of excitement – he took the time to really help us both with the products we were looking for.   This is when he suggested that I try their bronzer!

Let me say, I am in love, love with it!  The shade selected is Palm Beach!  I know, I know, you are probably saying “Where have you been!”   But I am so amazed with the results.   By the time we finished with Arthur, we had purchased new concealers, blushes and when they did n’t have a particular product at the show, he suggested we go to the NARS Flagship Boutique on Bleeker St!  He pulled out his phone, brought up Google maps and showed us which way to walk!  Did we go? We sure did!  We walked right from 18th Street (413 Bleecker Street!) with our Starbucks green tea with lemonade; so that just lets you know Arthur was wonderful!

OK, now back to the bronzers, they can be worn not only in the summer, however in the winter too!   There are many shades to choose from, if you looking to have a dewy look, a distinct glow or just a sutle touch of shimmer.  Whatever your preference, NARS has the shade for your skin tone, there are 14 shades!

Yes, bronzers have been around and there are some good ones, but I must now say that the NARS bronzer is my absolute favorite!  LOVE IT.   This summer I will be using this for my face and for my body, Urban Decay’s Coco (see my Favorites Things section).

Iman wears bronzer all the time!  Now her makeup line has nice ones too! Iman, The Bronze Effect

While Charlize Theron, as beautiful as she is, the bronzer makes her look simply captivating!

So if you are looking for a bronzer, my recommendation would be to please try the NARS brand.

Now speaking of Charlize Theron, in her pictures you can see how the bronzer is a must and should be part of your makeup wardrobe.   And for those who are still saying, Wow!  It’s never too late to try something new…even me, Letia Come Lately!  LOL   🙂

Here’s me with the NARS Palm Beach bronzer, I’m in between shots, talking as usual!  Did I say I love it!  I turned to the side, so you can see the shimmer in the light!  Then the last shot, to see how the bronzer photos in the right lighting!

Ok, I’m out of here, if you have some pictures you would like to share….well I would love to see your bronzer results!  🙂  I’ve place some tutorials from my favorite gurus from YouTube!
