The NARS Andy Warhol Holiday Collection 2012

If you love wearing a pop of color, you’ll be thrilled to learn that your fave makeup trend just turned into pop art. The NARS x Andy Warhol Collection might just be the coolest new beauty launch of the 2012 holiday season!

“I believe in low lights and trick mirrors,” Andy Warhol once said. The Pop Art visionary—who owned hundreds of spiky platinum wigs and mastered the art of camouflage—celebrated eccentric forms of beauty, filling his aluminum-walled Factory on Forty-Seventh Street with fellow artists, derailed debutantes, rock stars, and drag queens. Now as the timing ripens for an Andy moment with the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fall retrospective, “Regarding Warhol,” François Nars launches a makeup-fueled tribute of his own.
