What We're Wearing This Weekend: NARS x Guy Bourdin's Holiday Collection

(Art by Caitlin Miller, photos courtesy NARS)If you're like us, you're probably planning your big weekend. And no we don't mean staying in and having a Netflix binge—although it's tempting. This weekend, we plan on going out in style! And what's in our makeup arsenal for our nightlife festivities? Two fabulous shades from NARS x Guy Bourdin's new holiday collection.

This weekend we've decided to go big and bold, and we don't care who knows it. First, we're bringing out Exhibit A ($29)—a matte red blush so rich in color it gives the apple of your cheeks a whole new meaning. Now we know what you're thinking, this is one bright red blush. And yes, yes it is. But when applied sparingly and blended correctly, this shade gives a natural-looking flushed look, rather than an over-the-top '80s red. Trust us.

The second piece we've pulled from the collection is an attention-grabbing purple. This limited-edition cinematic eyeshadow in Rage ($24) is velvety smooth and delivers one heck of a punch. Apply this electric orchard shade either dry or use a dampened brush for an ever bigger finish! We'll be going for the extra drama, thank you very much.
