I don’t use NARS foundation, but I wear NARS blush everyday and I love it. I use Makeup Forever HD for special occasion foundation, and it’s awesome.  Great coverage all night.

I used a NARS primer, which is my favorite primer ever, but I’ve never used their foundation. Just go to Sephora and use their tester to do your entire face. That way you can test-drive it and see if it works for you. Or ask a staff member for a sample to take home and try later. They generally don;t offer samples, but will give you one if you ask.

@Boston Bee: I use both of the ones you mentioned on a daily basis. IMO NARS has the best blush ever. It has great pigment and stays on, plus their color selection is fabulous. I used this blush on my wedding day, too, and my makeup looked great!

I’ve tried NARS blush which is really great, but never tried the foundation. After reading a million rave reviews, I recently bought MUFE HD foundation and it looks amazing in photographs. I remember reading that one (or more) of the Kardashians uses MUFE HD foundation for red carpet events. Maybe it’s worth a shot to try that one out as well.

Like lovekiss suggested, definitely check out Sephora. I think they offer some type of bridal makeup consultation as long as you spend $50 or something. I don’t know about you, but spending $50 in Sephora is not difficult to do. lol.

@Ms.Pink: MUFE HD was wrong for me, too. I tried it, MUFE Mat Velvet, Dior, Illamasqua, Yves Saint Laurent, and the new Smashbox longwear. Smashbox was the winner for me, hands down. And I got all but the YSL as samples from Sephora, so I didn’t have to keep buying and returning all of these products. The YSL sample came from the make-up counter in Nordstrom because Sephora does not stock YSL foundations in their store (but they do sell them online. weird). Anyway, definitely make friendly with a sales consultant in Sephora and go the sample route. Good luck!

I use NARS blush orgasm as well and love it. I went to Sephora to get my makeup done for my wedding (I also did a trial) I just had to buy a $50 gift card to hold my appointment which was fine because I buy my foundation from there every month so I’d spend the money anyway. I don’t know about NARS foundation, I got the airbrush foundation done, which I loved! It stayed on for well over 12 hours and looked great. Good luck!

FOundation is something it is really personal as the best one for you will depend entirely on your skin.

MUFE HD works great on some skins (usually the normalish in between skins) but if you are dry or oily, it’s just wierd and almost looks like it’s flaking or sitting on the skin funny. I don’t like it on myself but on some other people it’s great.

Rather than trying to copy the exact foundation she used, maybe go to a few counters. THey will ask your skin type, and the type of finish you want (dewy, natural, matte) and make suggestions. See if you can get samples to try a full face(some places will, some won’t).
