With my recently embraced bold lip, I have been looking for a subtle approach to eyes and cheeks. SJ (my makeup guru) lovingly calls a little color being “tarted up” but we certainly don’t want to take it too far! I have fallen for NARS Multiple in Cococabana because the shade is so subtle. There isn’t too much shimmer in it, and it doesn’t appear dewy. It actually is a cream-to-powder application. I apply it with my fingers and first intended it for only my brow bone with a totally nude lid and cheeks. But I also love it for the cheeks and even on the decolletage for evening. Envision a great bold lip like MAC Lady Danger with a completely neutral face and just a hit on this pearl for effect. Because this is totally translucent, don’t expect any color. But the powder effect does last a full day.
