What it is: A full-coverage concealer in an oil-free, ultra-lightweight cream formula that blurs imperfections as it conceals, smoothing the look of skin with a soft-matte, natural-looking finish.
What it does: Get high-performance correction with soft-focus blurring. Soft Matte Complete Concealer instantly conceals dark circles, redness, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and acne with a light-diffusing effect that blurs and smooths.
The Soft-Focus Smoothing Complex contains Optimal Diffusion Powder that transforms the look of skin by blurring imperfections with light-diffusing spheres. The formula delivers all-day wear and high coverage that’s non-cakey and won’t settle into fine lines and pores. Enriched with skin caring ingredients, like collagen-boosting peptides and hyaluronic acid, they reduce the appearances of wrinkles and pores by helping skin look plump over time. A cocktail of antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, C, and E deliver daily defense.
What else you need to know: "I have always believed that less is more. I created this concealer so you could just dab it on with your finger, deliver the highest level of coverage with the least amount of product, and still look completely natural."François Nars, Founder and Creative Director

Go multidimensional by contouring with color:
-1. Apply lighter shades to accentuate the tops of cheekbones, temple and bridge of the nose.
-2. Swipe darker tones on cheeks, jawline, underneath the nose, and crease of the eye for depth.
Enhance your skin’s natural warmth for a glowing look:
-1. Apply warm-toned shades across the cheek bones, jaw line, bridge of the nose and around the eyes to bring attention to the center of the face.
-2. Dust a brighter hue onto the apples of the cheeks and above the arch of the brow.
Go fashion-forward with this unexpected technique:
-1. Apply blush along the brow bone, moving towards the outer edges.
-2. Swipe down along the high point of the cheekbone, creating a “7” shape around the eye.
