There has been no shortage of “no-makeup makeup” beauty looks over the past few seasons during fashion week—there has, however, been a lack of attainable fresh-faced looks. Last September, that all seemed to change at Christopher Kane’s spring/summer ’15 show: the beauty, created by Nars, was dewy and even-toned, but it also had a multifaceted light behind it. The secret, we found out, was a special collaborative collection between Kane and Nars. Now, after a few months of waiting patiently, the limited-edition 10-piece line is finally available to the masses—just in time to create a lovely spring glow.
The collection—comprised of eye shadows, lip colors, illuminators, and blushes—comes with your standard soft beige nudes, pale pinks, and iridescent golds, but the majority features neon shades. While that may sound counterintuitive, the cult-favorite beauty brand created hues just translucent enough to highlight your skin’s inherent features without creating an unnatural appearance. The sheer fuchsia lip gloss enhances berry undertones, the iridescent violet and lilac eye shadow duo somehow transforms dark circles into something of alien-like beauty, and the magenta-hued Quantum Illuminating Multiple Stick supplements pink tones while the Silent Nude Blush works to even it all out. But, speaking to the line’s duality, nearly all the products—especially the neon coral Nebulous Lip Gloss—can be used to create bright, dramatic looks. It’s a collection with an electric feel.
