It's no surprise that most beauty brands will tell you that its products are designed to be used together. Take shampoo and conditioner, 3-step skin-care routines, or primer and foundation. Logic would say that products created to work together should be worn together, right? The beauty community has mixed thoughts on this, and for the most part, I've ignored that suggestion, opting instead to use a hodgepodge of brands and products on the regular.
But after years of hearing that products made together should be used together, I finally caved. And what better brand to do so with than NARS? In the video above, I put a full face of the brand's makeup to the test. Some were recent releases (like the brand's new 16-hour base) and others were old favorites (ever heard of its cult Laguna bronzer?!). What's more? It's all in hopes that this makeup look might serve as inspiration for your Valentine's Day festivities. Curious? Check out the video above to see how each of the products wore into the evening.
