Base instincts: new foundation by Nars

Base instincts: new foundation by Nars

The foundation MUAs are fighting over

Text: Yeong Sassall

Desperate for a full-coverage foundation that doesn't look caked on? We've found it.

When famed make-up artist François Nars and long-time collaborator Fabien Barron launch a new foundation, you know it will cause a stir. Case in point: the brand new Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, $64. Seeking a long-wear, full coverage foundation that didn't look heavy, the Nars R&D team (one of the best in the world) went ahead and developed it.

The luxe foundation, which improves skin texture over time, has already garnered a celebrity following: Nicole Kidman and Lady Gaga have embraced the base immediately, choosing to wear it for the 2015 Academy Awards. Given that only a drop is needed for 16-hour wear and weightless, natural coverage, we're predicting cult status in no time.
