Nars event tidbits

bits and tips we learned from Uzo @ the recent NARS event:

  1. While having experience working for various lines, Uzo grew and developed as an artist primarily while working at NARS.
  2. NARS helped launch the careers of “ethnic/exotic” models.  Having a perspective that was ahead of his time, NARS became instrumental in increasing the visibility of non-blonde models on the covers of fashion magazines.
  3. Aside from talent, some characteristics that allow top artists in the field to become stars are amazing people skills, tenacity, luck, avoiding petty cat fights, and continuous evolution.
