For years women have thrillingly blushed their cheeks with the shimmery peachy powder that promised them the flush of a fresh love session. While Orgasm blush shouldn’t be NARS’ only claim to fame, it certainly put them on the makeup map.
Last week I attended the launch of François Nars’ new book, Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself, an appropriately-glamorous party featuring extra-large photographs from the book (shot my Mr. Nars himself) of “real” men and women spanning all ages. Taken from bare face to bombshell, subjects “reveal the powerful role of beauty in personal transformation.” I met Michelle (below), a NARS employee, who was the only company member shot for the project. Some of the looks were alluring and others were natural, but all were beautiful and a testament to the relationship between confidence and transformation.
While this book featured only non-famous people, that didn’t stop the celebrities from coming out in full-force! Cool kids like Alexa Chung, Simon Doonan, Anna Sui and Grace Coddington sipped blood orange mojitos in the once-abandoned warehouse turned noir den.
