The Nars Provocateur Makeup Look

I think it’s pretty safe to say I’ve got my bases covered when it comes to nude makeup and strangely enough I’ve found myself completely mesmerised by the new Nars Provocateur Eye Palette. It is not really that surprising given the fact two of the shades a reds without a hint of orange to the red and I have always been partial to a teal eyeshadow.
