The makeup trends for Spring 2012? According to fine folk at NARS Cosmetics, it’s all about a mix of bright and playful colors balanced with rich, saturated hues. Launching Jan. 13th, eyes glisten in muted tones of lavender and pink, or shimmer in bronze shades accented with rich navy. Cheeks are flushed with candy pink while lips gleam in topaz or pop with berry.
The collection’s pièce de résistance? A metallic violet nail polish named Diamond Life. Inspired by Sade’s 1984 debut album, this lacquer is indeed a “Smooth Operator.”
