NARS Cosmetics will make its official debut at The Makeup Show NYC on May 13th and 14th at Metropolitan Pavilion with a 413 BLKR pop-up shop,  a nod to the brand’s flagship boutique and shopping destination for the New York City makeup artist community. The shop will boast the boutique’s signature black, white and ‘Jungle Red’ décor, bringing a touch of Founder and Creative Director Francois Nars’ vision to The Makeup Show’s professional makeup artist community. 


Among the available 200 SKUs selected for artists by Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer will be the limited-edition 413 BLKR collection,  newest Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer, the brand’s best-selling Orgasm Blush and limited-quantity makeup palettes from the NARS archives. James Boehmer (Director of Global Artistry), Uzo (International Lead Stylist) and Jenny Smith (Lead Stylist) will make special appearances, offering tips, insight and product recommendations.
