Oasis Blush by NARS has been a 'Holy-Grail' find for me. I love everything about this colour and I feel that is possibly the most harmonious shade for my skin tone that I've ever come across!!! On the NARS website it's described as a 'pink-champagne' colour, which to me is sort of a 'rose-gold' shade! Its definitely a pretty mauve-taupe-pink shade with a subtle gold shimmer!!!
I love the fact that Oasis harmonizes so well with my skin tone and is neutral enough to compliment almost else that I wear, from my brighter blouses to my most natural-taupe tops. This is a keeper for sure!!! For this look, I wanted to keep the lips neutral enough to compliment the blush and then do a more cool-brown subtle smokey eye. For the lips I applied Rimmel 'Taupe' liner, which is actually an eyeliner, but its soft and light enough to be used as a 'mixer' shade with lipsticks. I then applied Hourglass 'Fawn' lipstick - a new favourite - I can't wait to create a post about it! For the eyes, I applied a liner from Sephora called 'Tiramisu' - its a neutral-cool shade, almost a brown-taupe-cocoa shade, but deeper! I created a thicker line on top and then blended in Revlon 'Cocoa' eyeshadow to create a smokey effect!
I'm finding myself creating a new makeup 'wardrobe', filled with essentials that really compliment my own personalized palette (vs following a seasonal makeup recommendation). I'm looking forward to sharing some new finds soon :)
