Last May, I was invited to a sneak peek of Nars' cool collection for Fall 2012.
Nars' Fall collection is characterized by bold and striking lips, jewel- toned eyes with accents of icy silver, and skin dressed in glistening pale pink color. It gives me an imagery of a cold, starry night, accompanied by the chilly wind whispering on the background. If it were a character, this collection would be the Ice Queen for me. The colors of this collection will definitely give you a stunning, sultry, and sophisticated look.
J.Lee, Nars' Hong Kong's Training, Sales and Operations Manager, flew in all the way from HK to demonstrate Nars' latest look for Fall. Prior to becoming a manager, she once worked as Nars Korea's National Lead Makeup Artist, and has done numerous TVCs, fashion shows, and various campaigns for print media. Apart from working at Nars, she is also an instructor at Kyung-nam College University of Information and Technology and Chang-won University. When I've asked her personally why she loves working with Nars, she simply said that she loves the brand because she's learning so much from Francois Nars, founder of Nars cosmetics, and no other brand makes great colors as much as Nars does.

I'm wearing the Velvet Lip Pencil in More here. What a flattering my-Lips-But-Better shade! :)
J.Lee was kind enough to offer me a makeover. As she was doing this look, we we're also talking about our favorites from the brand. We both share the same favorites like Nars' Jungle Red and the iconic blushes!
Thank you so much, J.Lee! Until we meet again! :D
