A true artistic collaboration from start to finish, the Charlotte Gainsbourg for NARS Collection presents her signature style through François Nars’ vision of beauty.

“Charlotte’s allure is all in the uncompromising power of her personal style,” said Nars, Founder and Creative Director. “It’s very cool and authentic. Very French.”

Inspired by her intimate experience with makeup on set as an actress, musician, and muse, the Nars x Charlotte Gainsbourg Summer 2017 collection presents a new look at personal style.

“My references had to do with actresses in films, so a natural cheek, redness from crying, running – things that move me,” said Gainsbourg.

Sensorial formulas and tinted innovations channel Charlotte’s signature look of smoldering eyes and fresh accents. Skin is energized and natural-looking with the New Hydrating Glow Tint. Cheeks, flushed and tender, feel alive with emotion. Lips are bitten with soft colour.

Shades, specifically developed by Charlotte herself, are modern-day odes to fantasies, family, and friends—referencing memories of London and her many chapters in Paris. The packaging, a pointed mix of feminine contours and masculine detail, evokes the stylistic mix of military khaki decorated with sophisticated gold touches.

The collection will be available May 2017 at all NARS retailers.
