François Nars gives the low-down on perfecting this dewy, no-makeup makeup look with Nars Fall 2016 Color Collection

You’ve heard it before, you’ll hear it again: The overwhelming au naturel beauty trend is one that keeps making its rounds. Glowing skin with a bit of a highlight, brushed up brows and everyone’s own version of nude. But Nars-founder-cum-creative-director François Nars elevates the pared-down look to new heights with his latest Fall 2016 Color Collection.

Inspired by the looks of 70’s beauty icon Pam Grier in Coffy and Foxy Brown, the range debuts a refined combination of warm seasonal shades and iridescent matte textures. Cheeks are sculpted in complexion-enhancing hues from light caramel to espresso, lids get shimmery in glowing white and rose gold, while lips go soft in saturated tones of garnet and bordeaux. Nailing the perfectly sculpted ‘barefaced’ makeup can’t be any easier. It’s your face — just a bit enhanced.
