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. Don’t get me wrong; I was not only aware of the love makeup artists & consumers have for this product, but I happen to already own several shades as well, so when the matching new setting spray and brush came in, I was fired up to give everything a go. 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.
From the brand that has cornered the market on colour diversity, comes a new foundation: Matte Velvet Skin, available in 40 shades and a variety of undertones (in other words, you’re sure to find your match) in a revolutionary new matte finish that works with your skin to never leave you feeling — or looking — flat. Hallelujah.
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.
Several weeks ago I was invited to a “back to school” Guerlain media preview to discover several of the brand’s upcoming releases, and today’s post focuses on the newly launched foundations from the Lingerie de Peau lineup, Aqua Nude and Cushion. Both come in formulas that I personally prefer, I might add — but a hunch tells me that they’ll be finding favour with many others as well. Let’s just say that class was NEVER more fun!
For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.
