If you're anything like us, you appreciate beauty guru François Nars' incredible artistry--the man is the Michelangelo of makeup, after all--but the thought of actually emulating his incredible work probably seems like an impossible feat. But what once felt out of reach is now completely feasible, thanks to Nars' new book Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself
and its companion website
. While the book is unquestionably a masterpiece, the site is truly an ingenious idea. In addition to being an informative resource with tips and trick galore, it's also a beauty game that encourages you to pick one of 12 looks from the book and re-create it yourself. Once done, you can upload an image of your handiwork to the site, where fellow beauty aficionados view and vote on the way you executed the look. Even better: the people who get the most votes will receive one of 13 prizes, including a trip to New York City to join the NARS team backstage during Fashion Week! Can you imagine winning that? It's basically the definition of a priceless opportunity!
So whether you're ready to show off your makeup skills, want to see other people's work, or are simply curious about the stories behind these key looks, be sure to check out MakeupYourMind.com
today. The game is running from now until August 31, 2011, but you can see who's winning thus far by simply visiting NARS' http://www.facebook.com/narscosmetics Facebook page
. But regardless of why you visit the site, one thing's for sure: NARS has brought their signature brilliance to the web in a big way!
