Francois Nars was inspried by the character Severine, in the film Belle de Jour, played by Catherine Deneuve. “Her character is incredibly beautiful and elegant,” says François. “Her look is effortless—she has an incredible inner sophistication. “I designed the makeup to bring a natural-looking glow to the skin, while allowing women to have fun with color. After all, summer is a playful season, nothing should be too complicated!”Enchanted Cream Blush ($26)- Soft peach with a hint of shimmer
