François Nars – Nars Cos­met­ics

Friday - - Beauty -

The story: Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from Carita Makeup school in Paris in 1984, François Nars – like so many other artists – moved to New York with dreams of be­com­ing a top pro­fes­sional make-up artist – and he was soon work­ing for the likes of Amer­i­can Vogue and Elle. Frus­trated that he didn’t have the per­fect tools for the job, François launched a col­lec­tion of 12 lip­sticks in Bar­neys un­der the name Nars Cos­met­ics. Pro­pelled by their sell-out suc­cess, his col­lec­tion quickly grew to in­clude prod­ucts for skin, lips, eyes and nails. The com­pany was sold to Shi­seido in 2000, but François has re­mained as the artis­tic direc­tor, in-house pho­tog­ra­pher, and copy­writer for his brand. Where to buy: Nars re­cently opened its first re­gional stand­alone store in The Dubai Mall.
