NARS Makeup Event at Nordstroms Topanga

I made the appointment for this event at my local Nordies because I was at a fence on how to use the Ramatuelle Trio. I tried using all three shades on its own but I felt that it’s too light on me. So the MUA I was assigned with showed me a way to make it work with my skin tone. She  used a cream eyeshadow in Cayenne as base which makes the whole look warmer to suit me. Then topped it with the more opaque apricot shade on my crease and slightly above past it then blended it in. Sheer peach and the icy blue shade can be used alternately for inner corner corner and brow bone. She suggested a darker blue liner on my upper lash line to make my brown eye color pop and brown at the lower lash line. I really love Liberte as a blush, warm apricot perfect for the summer. She used Never Say Never on my lips which is too bright pink. To tone it down, she topped it with Larger Than Life Lipgloss in Tiber. I love the end result but I feel that I can dupe this shade with other products already in my collection.
