The NARS Summer 2011 Collection, created by Founder & Creative Director François Nars, boasts bright colors reminiscent of the tropics. François once again turned to model Iris Strubegger for the cad ampaign. Her intensely bronzed skin was the perfect accessory to complement the bright shades within the collection.
The NARS Summer 2011 Collection is a range of warm, sophisticated, shimmering shades, punctuated with shots of vivid, nature-defying color. Eyes are washed in icy sea foam, silver-green and frozen turquoise. Lips are infused with mandarin orange gloss and hot pink matte color. The look is finished with nails in bold sunflower yellow or matte opaque white for a modern, edgy effect that’s strictly NARS. This is one of the best summer makeup collections yet!

When asked if there was any makeup that should be avoided when creating a summer look, François Nars answered “There are no rules when it comes to seasonal makeup looks! When the temperatures rise, experiment with bright hues, and lighter textures. I love the way bold colors pop against bronzed skin.” We couldn’t agree more!
