Make-up brand NARS has launched its new collection called NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection in honor of late iconic fashion photographer Guy Bourdin. Francois Nars, owner of the makeup brand, stated that the photographer’s work has inspired him to become a makeup artist in his early years. In his own words, “The colors in his photographs are like an artist’s palette.” And the collection recreates just that.
The line, which is limited edition, contains a wide selection of lipsticks, eye shadows, nail polishes and blushes, in bold colors yet sophisticated, reminiscent of the photographer’s aesthetic in his work for Vogue Paris, among other French fashion magazines. For his time, Bourdin was wild in his work and choice of colors. His models transmitted a feeling of power that was ahead of their time. The amazing colors in the Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection captures the essence of what a woman wants for her and to be perceived as.
These items can be purchased separately or you can indulge in gift sets along with diverse palettes. This which would make exceptional and chic Holiday presents (starting up a wish list? Wink, wink). The collection was launched last October, but since last Friday you can find them at Sephora – both online and at stores – and at narscosmetics.com. The prices start at $19.
