A flawless complexion the goal most days, and thanks to Nars Sheer Glow Foundation we can pretty much guarantee that with a bit of buffing it’s easy to achieve.
Glowing, natural-looking skin that has a radiant finish is what you’ll achieve with Sheer Glow, and it looks just as good if you work it in with your fingers or your foundation brush.
The great thing about this foundation though is not that it immaculately evens skin tone, but it’s replete with skincare benefits and the Nars Complexion brightening formula. It leaves you skin hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. And over time, the foundation helps to improve the skin’s brightness and texture.

It also has an excellent and extensive range of shades. Whether your skin is porcelain, ebony or somewhere in between, you’re likely to find a perfect match for your skin.
The coverage airs less on the side of sheer like the name suggests, it sits in the light to medium range, but it’s definitely a beautifully buildable foundation that doesn’t look cakey at all. Sheer Glow Foundation suits many different types of skin as well, with hydrating properties for those with dry skin, but it also works well on normal and oily skin too.
Excellent coverage, natural finish, lasts really well on the skin, doesn’t clog the skin, has small amount of antioxidants, skincare benefits, hydrating
It doesn’t come with a pump, you have to buy that separately.
Nars Sheer Glow foundation is the perfect product for natural daytime makeup. The silky formula provides translucent coverage that evens out skin tone without looking caked on.
With a wide shade range and a long-lasting formula, we find it hard to believe that you couldn’t fall in love with the Sheer Glow Foundation.
The biggest downside is the packaging, the rubber lid is going to get grubby there’s no denying that, and the fact that it doesn’t come with a pump is annoying. But definitely buy one, you’ll waste so much product if you don’t. Once you get past these bugbears, though, you’ll love the fresh, dewy base you can achieve with this beautiful foundation.

Nars Makeup Artist tips for applying Sheer Glow
James Boehmer, Director of Global Artistry shares his advice:
“Sheer Glow Foundation creates a luminous, satin-like texture to the skin. Although the foundation can be built up for more coverage, this is the go-to product for a transparent, weightless foundation with sheer to medium coverage. The foundations give their coverage by pigment and not the weight of the product, so less is more.
“Always warm up a foundation in the hands and apply with the finger – this creates the most natural looking finish. Start in the centre of the face (where we typically need more coverage) and work out toward the edge of the face.
“Sheer Glow Foundation is also a great clean-up tool: use it with a concealer brush under the eyes and around the lips to make sure lines are crisp and picture perfect.”

Uzo, International Makeup Stylist says:
“Great for use as an under-eye concealer. Apply a small amount under the eyes with the finger top or a concealer brush. Blend and add more foundation until desired coverage is achieved.”
Francois Nars’ creative vision, which launched NARS Cosmetics with 12 iconic lipsticks in 1994, inspires self-expression and imaginative artistry through an unexpected, no-rules philosophy of beauty.
As one of the most influential image-makers in the world Francois’ signature boundary-pushing approach to makeup manifests from the palette to the product name to the campaign photograph itself – continuing to bring high-fashion, high-style and forward thinking to beauty. With every product, endless opportunities for self-expression: “Don’t hold back. Be bold. It encourages others to do the same.”
The brand, born of François’ fascination with colour purity, debuted with 12 original high-pigment lipsticks at Barney’s New York. Since then he has gone on to work with fashion’s most respected, including Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld.
Twenty years and countless collections later, NARS continues to bring high fashion, high style, and forward thinking to beauty.

Nars Super Orgasm is a similar shade to the standard Orgasm blush, but with chunkier and more golden glitter, it’s more of a blush and highlighter product in one.
The chunky golden glitters in Super Orgasm make it appear more golden and lighter than Orgasm, but when applied to the cheeks the peach-pink shade is pretty similar, the difference comes in from the glitter and highlight detail. Nars Orgasm is a lot more wearable in this respect, it’s a brilliant everyday shade that makes skin look healthy and glowing, without a heavy dose of glitter on the cheeks.
Nars Madere is the perfect nude lip for those with fair skin. It’s bold and perfectly matte, and thanks to the wild mango butter you don’t need to worry about this creating a look of super dry lips either.
The long-wearing formula glides onto the lips and stays put for a long time too. We also love how this looks paired with gloss too, creating a number of gorgeous lip looks. Whether you’re after a barely-there make-up look, or need a nude lip to go with your smoky eye, Nars Madere is a perfectly beautiful natural-looking shade that won’t result in the dreaded ‘foundation lip’ look.
