Presenting the translucent foundation that reduces the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
When François Nars began his search for effective makeup ingredients, he looked for inspiration close to home—namely, his private island in the French Polynesia. There, he discovered the anti-aging and hydrating kopara and deemed it the perfect addition to his Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. Since its launch in 2012, the sheer liquid foundation not only offers subtle, glowy coverage, it also works to correct skin issues (thanks to an infusion of stabilized vitamin C, which helps reduce the appearance of dark spots in just four weeks). “With this tinted moisturizer you get light coverage that’s buildable with a fresh, dewy finish,” says makeup artist Kirin Bhatty, a favorite of Freida Pinto and Jessica Paré. “And the color range is great. Skin looks like skin, which is super important to me—I like to give my clients coverage that is beautiful and effortless, never overdone.”
