Even as new highlighting powders and prismatic shadows pop up on the market each week, we’re still keen on stocking up on the tried-and-true beauty products that have long occupied our cosmetic case. “I’m devoted to the items in my makeup bag that can transition me from day to night with ease,” says NK. It all starts with the eyes: a vivid, long-lasting liner is intensified by a volumizing, lash-fortifying mascara.
For day, a plum-hued, stay-all-day eyeshadow can be built upon for a multidimensional payoff, while a swipe of the rich sapphire eyeshadow bumps up your look to evening appropriate. Finally, a light-as-air loose powder, delicately applied with a soft-to-the-touch brush, leaves a natural, fine line-blurring finish. Natasha loves to keep her top Lise Watier picks in a croc-embossed leather pouch by designer Rosa Halpern of Namesake. The Toronto-based leather atelier—established to honour the iconic leather jacket and the dynamic women who wear it—specially customized this versatile piece for ShopNK so it could moonlight as a chic evening clutch. Paired with these elevated beauty essentials, you’re set in more ways than one.
