What's not to love from NARS' Fall 2011 Collection? Electric blues, frosted sages, and shades of rose and aubergine combine to form a sophisticated and edgy lineup. Founder and makeup artist François Nars photographed and designed the signature look, shown on Italian model Mariacarla Boscono. "Confident, fashion-forward, and graphic—fall is the perfect time to play with dramatic shades, bold colors, and rich textures," François says of the collection. Mariacarla wears the statement blue of the season: NARS Single Eyeshadow in Outremer. Get ready to splurge—this collection is a winner!
