After falling in love with NARS’ newest Claudette Collection – a beautiful, wearable makeup edit evoking the flair of 1970’s Paris – I wanted to share the #TheAlexEdit of my NARS favourites. These are the classics that frequently reside in my makeup bag.

This is your all in one mascara that offers volume, lifted and defined lashes. It’s a clever combination of a ribbed bristle brush for precise application and a lightweight whipped formula to avoid clumping or smudging. A great choice to pair with a smokey eye.
I adore a good bronzer to add warmth to my complexion and Laguna is one of my all-time favourites. A classic that I always go back to for its complimentary colour, silky texture and easy blendability. For my top NARS bronzing tips check out this post I filmed with makeup artist Anna Priadka.
This is by far my favourite base of the range. It offers long lasting coverage without feeling heavy or caking on the skin. You can still achieve that fresh-faced glow without being overly dewy so it’s a good match for when wearing face coverings. I use the shade Barcelona.
You may already know I’m a big fan of tinted balms (not just for the summer). Afterglow delivers a subtle wash of colour through a super hydrating lip balm that gives lips a smooth, comfortable and fresh finish.
A brown eye pencil is a makeup staple for me and the NARS Eyeliner in Mambo ticks all the boxes. Perfect for every day liner, can be used over the eyelid and blended to build out a smokey eye and it’s precise enough to create fine lines.
