NARS Powerfall Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

They say the advent of fall will be just awesome in the beauty arena, with dashes of Afro-American nude, au naturel elegance of ‘70s with caramel and espresso shades diffusing dizzy aroma around. It is François Nars standing behind this beauty hubbub by launching his new NARS Powerfall fall 2016 makeup collection that is set to hit the market in mid-July at NARS Cosmetics and on August 1st at other retailers, like Sephora, Nordstrom and Barneys.

NARS Powerfall Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

The collection will include 3 dual-intensity eyeshadows, 2 contour blushes, 2 new velvet matte lip pencils and 9 new velvet eyeliners – the whole monty meant to emulate the characters played by American actress Pam Grier, who served as the great inspiration for the creation of the lineup.

“The characters Grier played in those [’70s] movies were strong and assertive, and her look was tough, but at the same time never hard,” says Nars. “Instead of a lot of color, her makeup was more natural. The campaign references those characters and that time period with the contouring on the cheeks and the more natural palette.”

And in order to convert his great idea into reality François Nars placed his trust in the African chocolate girl Aya Jones. With an Afro hairstyle, reverse cat eyes, full nude lips and perfectly contoured cheeks, Aya comes as the best embodiment of Pam Grier’s beauty pattern. Explore the collection for your future second-to-none fall beauty moments:
