A/W 2012 Beauty Trends at Westfield London: Metallic with NARS Makeup

Westfield Catwalk

This weekend has been the Westfield London Fashion weekend for Autumn/Winter 2012. 
I was lucky enough to be invited for a makeover at the NARS counter in House of Fraser 
to re-create one of their key looks for this season:
this look's theme is Metallic with burnt oranges. 

The lovely Kasia did my makeup, and she told me as soon as she saw my oriental features, 
she was immediately inspired to do this particular look. 
With well-prepped and semi-dewy skin, 
I had metallic silver eyeshadow with a matte red-orange lip. 
To be honest, I was skeptical at first as I don't usually wear silver on my eyes, 
but I quickly fell in-love with this look!

Products she used (all NARS of course):

Skin Preparation:
NARS Skin Multi-action Hydrating Toner
NARS Skin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-free Moisturizer
NARS Skin Optimal Brightening Concentrate

NARS Tinted Moisturizer in St. Moritz
NARS Orgasm Illuminator
NARS Deep Throat blush 
NARS Laguna bronzer

NARS Bali eyeshadow (brows)
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Vent Glace
NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Carpates
NARS Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara

NARS Heatwave lipstick

FYI -- all these photos were taken 3 whole hours after the makeover. I blotted some excess oil built up, but I did not touch up whatsoever. I am so impressed with the quality of these products and how the foundation held up, and I foresee another NARS visit in the future!

NARS Deep Throat blush is so beautiful. I think I might pick it up one of these days.

I am soo impressed with the Tinted Moisturizer
It has light-medium coverage, instantly hydrates my face without making it look oily, 
and it contains SPF30! 
Something to definitely check out, especially when the dry winter months come.

Other key looks Westfield fashion has for this season include Gothic, Golden Baroque and Digital Print:
