Makeup palettes are really convenient, aren’t they? When you love to blend shades together, and aren’t sure how to do it, a palette makes it so easy for you. Usually, the shades are specially curated for you to create a certain look, whether it’s smokey, natural, or ultra vibrant. The new NARS Artist Palette is kind of special in that it features the ability to customize your options for shadows, blush, bronzer, and highlighters. There are options for everyone, from soft neutrals to popping colors, so you really can take the NARS Artist Palette and make it your own.
Having been a makeup artist, I know how tiresome it can be lugging around several pods of shadows and blushes in every color under the sun when on the job to make sure you’re prepared. Sure, it’s a good arm workout, but it can truly be more chaos than it’s worth. The NARS Artist Palette was designed with this in mind, so artists can change up the shades in order to reduce the amount they have to travel with. It’s really a great option for traveling in general; put in shades that will take you from day to night when you’re on vacation to reduce the size of your cosmetic bag! So convenient, right? And with the strong magnetic clasp and magnetized pots, it’ll keep up in your travel tote just fine.
Now you might be thinking; how in the world could I fit everything I need into one palette? If you’re one who plays with lots of color, or likes to change it up every now and then, there are small and large palette sizes that you can pick. If you’re having a hard time limiting which shades you want, opt for the larger one so you can feel confident that you’re fully stocked for whatever look you want to achieve.
If you’re trying to minimize your collection, though, take the small one and pick a few versatile shades; you can never go wrong with bronzy and brown shades. One of my faves is the Albatross highlighter, which Kim Kardashian is known for using – and Kim’s makeup game is always flawless! You can choose from 64 colors that you can get refills for.
Keep in mind that this is NARS, they are a higher-end cosmetic line so it’s going to be expensive once you start building your palette. Since each pod of shadows are sold individually, it will definitely add up. However, if you’re a makeup artist or a fan of the brand, think of this as an investment. There’s so many good things about this palette, and it’ll last you a long time depending on how often you’ll use it.
NARS has a long-standing positive reputation both in the beauty and fashion industries, and is a company that understands what artists in the field need. They constantly deliver product to make cosmetics accessible and convenient, and this palette is by far no exception.
