A fresh face for Fall

My dry, lacklustre, post- summer skin has been desperate to try a new foundation. So whilst having a mooch in Selfridges a few weeks ago, I felt myself gravitate to  Nars Sheer Glow Foundation. For years I have considered trying this foundation, particularly as so many people have given it a holy grail award within their makeup collection.  It was the perfect opportunity for me to finally add it to my collection.

Product overview 

  • Available in 20 shades
  • Zero SPF (great for flash photography)
  • Satin matte finish
  • Buildable coverage
  • Barely there feel on the skin 
  • Liquid consistency
  •  Silky texture
  • Suitable for normal to dry skin types
  • Fragrance free
  • 20 shades
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty free

Despite the misleading name of this product, the foundation gives so much more than a "sheer glow". Unlike my usual Kat Von D foundation (which is an absolute hero product for achieving that entirely flawless skin finish) it gives a much softer, natural finish. So it's me, but ever so slightly filtered and fresh! 

When applying there product, I have experimented with a stippling brush, a flat foundation brush and a beauty blender but I have found that my fingers give the best finish with sheer glow. It blends seamlessly into my skin and I hardly have to put in any effort to blend it out. Far from looking caked or overdone, I'm left with any redness covered and a healthy radiance.  

Radiant creamy concealer is one Nars product I'm not unfamiliar with. I have repurchased it several times as it truly is a wonderful, non creasing, top coverage concealer. When layered under the eyes for days where you need that bit of extra help, it doesn't look thick or sit uncomfortably. The shade is one of 6 new shades to the collection,  crème brûlée, a fair shade with a slightly pink undertone 

Much like the foundation, no special tools are needed to assist the application of this makeup bag saviour. I simply swipe under my eyes and apply in a triangle shape, from the inner corner to the outer corner. You're left with bright, awakened under eyes. I think I have found my new favourite base combination!
