I’m still playing my way through that custom NARS palette, and I’m still rediscovering classics that keep speaking to me (because, obviously, my makeup talks to me), saying nuggets of wisdom like, “Karen, you seriously need to consider wearing us every day for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.”
Case in point: the magic combo of Madrague and Alhambra. If these two duos sang a duet, it would go a little something like this…
The sound of disco perfection
Madrague is a matte combo with a creamy brown caramel and a warm beige… Think elevated basics for your crease and brow bone.
Alhambra has a glowing rose gold on one side and a shimmery champagne on the other, and I’ll wear either one, or a mix of both on the inner lids for a wide, doe-eyed effect.
Draw some dainty winged liner, add a couple layers of mascara, and you’re set.
I think this eye look is neutral enough to go with most blushes, but it looks extra pretty when you wear it with warm golden pink. I’m wearing it here with NARS Deep Throat blush, which I’ve always thought was the better, more wearable version of Orgasm…
I know Orgasm gets all the love, but Deep Throat is more pink and less coral, so I think it’s closer to the actual color of flushed cheeks. Plus, Deep Throat’s shimmer is more opalescent and less frosty than Orgasm’s, so it’s more forgiving when skin has visible pores and texture.
Swatch it next time you’re at the counter. I think you’ll like it.
