Calling all fashon girls! If you’ve ever been fascinated by fashion week makeup or just generally love seeing editorial beauty looks, you’ll surely love this latest collaboration. After a successful stint with H&M, designer Erdem Moralioglu is back with a global partnership with NARS. As a fashion brand, Erdem is known for its dreamy take to romanticism with designs showcasing cinematic silhouettes in luxe fabrics. If there’s anything that embodies spring, it’s florals and Erdem has absolutely mastered it to a T.
For the current season, Moralioglu takes the official leap from fashion to beauty with a 13-piece makeup range inspired by the English Rose called, “Strange Flowers”. Teaming up with Francois Nars, the assortment has been in development for 2 years and premiered at Moralioglu’s Fall 2018 show. “This was never going to be just another designer collaboration, where you do five new lipstick shades,” Erdem says of Strange Flowers. “It was really interesting to explore my aesthetic in collaboration with Nars and see how far we could push different elements through color and product,” he continues. “It was fascinating to develop new pigments and palettes as well as the cosmetics themselves.”
The Erdem x Nars Strange Flowers collection consists of products for the cheeks, eyes and lips and comes in floral packaging. Here’s a sneak peak of some of the products in the range that we’re absolutely buzzing for!
Lip Powder Poison Rose Palette
You read that right, it’s lip powder. You can use this classic makeup staple for a velvety finish that extra pigmented.
Lipsticks in Wild Flower and Voodoo Lily
While Wild Flower may seem like it’s an intense black, it’s a sheer, buildable purple that’s easy to wear. For those who love more subtle colors, Voodoo Lily is a pretty mauve shade.
Multi-Use Highlighting Pencil
This illuminating pencil is creamy and precise with a pearlescent pink sheen that gives a glow from within.
Eyeshadow Night Garden Palette
Something different from the light hues of Erdem, the Night Garden palette has stunning deep shades in gold, navy, and bronze tones perfect for day to night.
Mattifying Blotting Paper
A fancy addition to your everyday makeup bag to keep you shine free.
