CHANEL · Fall/Winter 2019 Haute Couture Beauty Edit

For her first solo CHANEL Haute Couture debut held this past July 2nd, Virginie Viard paid a breathtaking tribute to the House’s legacy, literally transforming the Grand Palais into a blown up rendition of Mademoiselle’s personal library. The effect was nothing short of spectacular, and while you’d think that stepping into the shoes of the late Karl Lagerfeld would be almost impossible to accomplish, Virginie Viard not only rose to the occasion beautifully, but managed to do it in a way that conveyed calm & serenity, albeit in CHANEL’s true spirit of luxurious grandeur.

Dior · Backstage Airflash Spray Foundation, Radiance Mist, Buffing Brush & Diorshow All-Day Brow Ink

 

Today’s post focuses on several new launches from Dior, along with an industry standard — the foundation — that for some inexplicable reason, I hadn’t tried … until now.

Adding to the common thread of long-lasting makeup, these new Dior brow products seemed to fit right in … and thus, a post is born.

NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.
