“Use Bobbi Brown’s Concealer Blending Brush to take a bit of this bronzer and brush it over the eyelids. Using your finger, tap the bottom left eyeshadow shade into the center of the lids and finish it off with a coat of Bobbi Brown’s Smokey Eye Mascara.”
“Dab Kjaer Weis’s Cream Blush in Sun Touched onto the apples of the cheeks and blend well. Then use this RMS highlighter to enhance: Apply with a finger, following the bridge of the nose, the cupid’s bow, and the cheekbones. Finish with a touch more bronzer on the forehead and jawline, but take care not to layer it over the Living Luminizer or you’ll end up with a blotchy effect.”

But for much of Nasrat’s life, although she worked on the business side of the beauty industry, makeup was nothing more than a hobby, albeit one that she was very, very good at. It wasn’t until six years ago, when actress Azita Ghanizada (a close family friend) asked Nasrat to do her makeup for a red carpet event, that Nasrat—who was working as an account executive—realized she could parlay her favorite pastime into a lucrative career, and got serious about the business of beauty.
After joining VIOLET GREY in 2013, Nasrat helped to open and manage the flagship store on Melrose Place, working with VIP customers and growing her celebrity clientele. Now, as VIOLET GREY’s first official brand ambassador, Nasrat does what she does best—charming celebrities, and the world at large, with her winsome smile and unmatched beauty prowess.
