I remember wanting this color so bad but was hesitant because I wasn't sure how it would look on my skin tone. It was easy finding swatches online, but it was almost impossible to find swatches of Zoya Zara that had the same skin tone as mine.
Finally I took my chances and bought it during Zoya's Charla/Ivanka promo. I am so glad that I did because it's beautiful and looks great with my complexion! I decided I'd go ahead and put these swatches out there for those who also need to find swatches with a darker skin tone.
This is four coats with no top coat. The second picture is probably the most color accurate.
Zoya Zara is a beautiful, and I mean BEAUTIFUL, light purple with strong copper shimmer. I also think the name Zara is very pretty. It's on the sheer side and takes two thick coats or three thin coats to be opaque. I actually did four in these pictures since the camera can pick up bald spots.
This color is very unique. If you take out the shimmer, this is a cool toned color, put it back in and it's warm toned.
This is also one of the most beautiful colors in my collection and is for sure one of my favorite Zoyas.
