Are you ready for the Summer?
NARS is featured on page 4 of Sephora's Summer 2009 Catalog. I'm excited, but I'm also BROKE! I decided to try to recreate the look using less expensive products. Please let me know what you think.
The model is depicted with the crease color all the way up to the eyebrow. This look is way too dramatic for me, so I opted to use a highlight close to my skintone with a bit of shimmer.
