The NARS Guy Bourdin holiday 2013 makeup collection pays tribute to the work of famed French photographer Guy Bourdin, who inspired François Nars ever since he was a child. 

The famed photographer was mostly known for his inclination towards bold, sensual accents, so naturally the new line aims to emphasize these characteristics first and foremost. This means there’s a strong focus on vivid eyeshadow colors, sexy lipstick shades and fabulous nail polishes, designed to help you reveal your inner vixen and create the iconic “saturated, cinematic Bourdin look”. 

Here’s what the new line offers:

NARS Guy Bourdin Cinematic Eyeshadows ($24)
