Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder 001

Before I became an illustrator/designer, I worked at Dior. It was one of my part-time jobs in college and a rewarding experience that sparked my love for fashion, luxury, and well…Dior.

I’ll always have a soft spot for the brand. I feel like they do everything with an understated (or, an amazingly dramatic!) elegance.

5 Couleurs Polka Dots Eyeshadow Palette in Bain De Mer 366

Their Summer 2016 Milky Dots Collection has a playfully elegant edge that I find refreshing for the classic brand, and here’s a look at some of my favorite pieces from the launch.

Dior’s eyeshadows are LEGENDARY, and the colors in the Bain De Mer 366 Palette ($63) are driving me wild! — but I don’t have the confidence to pull off a totally icy blue eye (what ’90s dreams are made of) yet, so I’ve been keeping myself content playing with the soft coral and nudes in the palette.

The coral and blues mix together beautifully on the lids where they overlap, and with them I can get a pastel lilac look that I find SO beautiful.

What it lacks in downright pigmentation, the palette makes up for in smooth textures and satiny sheens. I’m actually surprised by the quality of the two blue shades, which are the brightest, and yet the easiest, colors to work with in the palette. How often do we see that!?

The limited edition Dior 001 NudeAir Shimmering Loose Powder ($56) is the fastest way to feel like a princess. It took me a while to understand that it wasn’t designed to be used on the entire face, and let’s just say that I wore a very luminous face for a few days…

This is purely a “cherry-on-top” product that you puff onto the highest points of the face. The loose highlighter uses multi-dimensional glitters to emphasize the cheeks and bring life to any look. While not totally necessary…I think it’s a beautiful collectible item to save and use on special occasions.

Between the adorable Polka Dot Nail Duos and the breezy blues in the Bain de Mer palette, Dior’s Summer 2016 Collection is elegance and fun.

Kicking myself for not trying these Dior eyeshadows sooner!

As much as I love Dior, I can’t believe I never tried the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows before now!

I mean, I haven’t been totally living under a rock, because I do have an eyeshadow palette or two, and I LOVE the sparkly Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadows. And I’m also a fan of Dior foundations and brow products, and these nail polishes look amazing, so I really have no excuse for not trying them sooner.

This spring Dior released nine new shades of their $29.50 Diorshow eyeshadow, and here are four of my favorites from the line: Gallery, a soft champagne gold with a satin/shimmer finish; Minimalism, a grayish taupe with a satin finish; Atmosphere, a cool-toned purple with a satin finish; and Power, a rich plum with a satin finish.

Here are two sets of swatches in different lighting:

Swatches of the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows (L to R): Gallery, Minimalism, Atmosphere, and Power.

Swatches of the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows (L to R): Gallery, Minimalism, Atmosphere, and Power

These eyeshadows look pretty standard in their pans, but get them on your skin in the sun? Wow! They’re more complex than they seem, and there’s a really pretty (but subtle) shimmer running throughout. I think they’re great if you like matte shadows but want ones that won’t look so flat. I’m really surprised by how beautiful these eyeshadows are. If you’ve wondered about them, definitely take a look in a store! I don’t think that pictures online can do them justice.

The re-vamped eyeshadows are so smooth and pigmented

Oh, and since we’re talking about Dior, how do you feel about Diorshow mascara? I remember when it first came out years ago, and EVERYONE was obsessed. I since moved on to Too Faced Better Than Sex, but then I heard that Dior recently reformulated Diorshow, enriching it with microfibers for that false lash effect. They came out earlier this spring in four limited edition shades — Pro Mahogany #778, Pro Magenta #868, Pro Navy #288 and Pro Anthracite #088. Here’s a look at Pro Navy and Pro Anthracite.

dior eyeshadows and mascaras

Limited edition Diorshow mascara in Pro Anthracite and Pro Navy

Both of them give you more of a subtle effect, with Anthracite being an off-black color that’s great if you want a natural eye look, whereas Pro Navy is a really pretty navy that shows up well in sunlight, but the color’s less noticeable in other types of light. 

I love the wand they come with because it applies without clumping, but I can’t say that I’ve been blown away by the new formula. It definitely darkens my lashes and keeps them separated, but I don’t notice any major lengthening. I don’t know… Maybe I’ll change my mind after a few more uses.

The packaging is so classy and luxe!

Here I’m wearing Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow in Minimalism over my lids, and Atmosphere along my lower lash line. And then that’s Diorshow Mascara in Pro Navy gracing my lashes.

For the rest of my makeup, I’m wearing Pur Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan with a little Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation in 040 for extra coverage // Becca Luminous Blush in Foxglove (review + swatches coming soon) // Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Satin Lip in Spritz (review + swatches in this post) topped with NARS lipgloss in Tiber in the bottom picture.

Do you like the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadows, and have you tried the new Diorshow Mascara? I’d love to here your thoughts!

Right now, I seriously can’t help smiling every time I look down at my nails. 🙂

I’ve had negative time for my nails since starting night classes, but the new Dior Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kits ($31 each; three limited edition color combos available) remind me what a fun manicure can do to brighten my mood. Every time I’m driving or typing, I feel more put together!

I usually do my own nail painting, and I’ll stick to a few classic colors, rotating every two weeks or so, but I get bored of these same colors real fast. So, with these Polka Dots not only do I get two beautiful shades of the best polish formula (IMO), there are many ways to wear them together — or alone! If you can’t already tell, I’m completely smitten.

002 Confettis and 003 Plumetis

As part of the 2016 Dior Summer Milky Dots Collection, each manicure kit comes with two 0.23-oz. bottles and a sexy “Dior” branded dotting tool. The dotting tool has also been a pleasant surprise. Now I can easily draw with my other polishes too.

The color combos — in classic Dior fashion — are elegantly intriguing; my favorite being 002 Confettis. The light orange shade is really doing it for me…and I WILL be using it alone in the near future! I’ve had no issues with the lighter color showing up on the darker color either.

Dior nail polishes have an outstanding formula. They have a medium consistency and apply opaque with two coats using a wide brush. One of them, Junon, is one of the longest lasting polishes in my collection.

The Polka Dots Manicure Kits are limited edition for summer 2016 and available now at Dior, Sephora, and most Dior counters.

I think this is an interesting move for Dior… These feel more whimsical than their usual collections. What do you think? Let me know!

See you in the next,

Anna

Spring Beauty Essentials

These are some of my spring beauty essentials! On my lips I’m wearing the Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 872 Mona Lisette.

I always say that summer is without a doubt my favorite season.

But then spring comes around, and I’m not so sure anymore… I mean, I love the endless possibilities that come with long summer days, but the feeling of rebirth that spring brings is pretty hard to beat.

It’s so invigorating.

I love it when the freezing wintery air shifts into that warm spring breeze. You know, just taking a walk and soaking in the sun puts me in a better mood. The smell of freshly cut grass and new flowers is mildly intoxicating… In spring, I feel like I’m on a constant high.

I think that what makes me like spring so much is that it’s a big moment of change. As human beings, it’s usually the moments when (good) changes happen that give us that utter sense of joy. Later on, most of us tend to get used to what we have and lose that feeling of ecstatic excitement.

Besides the changes in the scenery and weather, spring also brings along changes in my beauty routine. There are a few products I always rediscover at this time of the year, and today I’m sharing them with you.

The Fake Tan: Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning ($38)

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning

Aside from the occasional dusting of bronzer here and there, most of the time in winter I tend to embrace my corpse-like complexion, but once the sun comes out of the clouds and the leaves grow back on the trees, I’m all about that healthy, sunkissed look. Since my face and neck are usually a shade lighter than the rest of my body, in the spring and summer I like to use a self tanner to make sure everything matches.

The best one I’ve tried so far is the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning lotion, a lightweight lotion that gives me a nice glow in two or three applications. The effect is pretty gradual and not too dramatic, so I think it’s well suited for fair/light complexions.

The Sunscreen: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dry Touch Gel-Cream SPF 30 ($19.99)

La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dry Touch Gel-Cream SPF 30

The US version of the La Roche-Posay dry touch sunscreen has SPF 60

Being an oily-skinned gal, I can’t just grab any random SPF and slather it on my face… Some of them tend to feel pretty heavy and greasy, you know? But luckily, these days, there are quite a few options for us shiny girls in the sunscreen department! My current favorite is La Roche-Posay Anthelios Dry Touch Gel-Cream SPF 30, because besides looking perfectly matte upon application, it doesn’t make me oilier over time.

The Juicy Lip: Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 872 Mona Lisette ($35)

Dior Addict Fluid Stick 872 Mona Lisette

I’m definitely more of a lipstick person than a gloss person, but in the warmer seasons I do appreciate adding a bit of juiciness to my pout. I tend to prefer pigmented formulas over the sheerer ones, and, while I really like the Lancôme Lip Lover in 336 Orange Manège, my favorite favorite has to be Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 872 Mona Lisette. Non-sticky and moisturizing, it feels as good on the lips as it looks in the tube. And it’s long-lasting, too!

The Lightweight Base: KIKO Wanderlust Sunshine DD Cream

KIKO Wanderlust Sunshine DD Cream

I’m a fan of lightweight bases all year round, but when temperatures peak, I feel like they really become a necessity. One I’ve been loving lately is KIKO Sunshine DD Cream (not available on the US website, oops!) in Very Light from the new Wanderlust Summer Collection, which I reviewed here on my blog. It is an SPF 30 tinted moisturizer that I think would suit a pretty wide range of skin types, from moderately dry to moderately oily.

The Bright Nail Polish: Essie Nail Polish in Fifth Avenue ($8.59)

Essie Nail Polish Fifth Avenue

Smith and Cult recently made me rediscover my love for nail polish after months of bare nails (you may read a detailed account of our love story on my blog here), and now that sandal-weather is just around the corner, I can’t wait to paint my toes with Essie Fifth Avenue, a beautifully bright red-orange.

What about you? Are there any products you use mainly in the warmer months?

I’m always trying new products, but I thought it would be fun to share what have been my most-used makeup products lately. For me, these are the products that “just work,” and they’re the things I reach for when I want to throw something on my face without having to give it any thought. The colors are just right, and they help me achieve my signature look — glowy skin and pinky/nude lips. 🙂

Foundations

most used makeup

I am a sucker for glowy, lightweight bases, and I’ve been constantly reaching for PUR Minerals HydraFluid Water Serum Foundation in Tan and NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Annapurna, which may be a tad too light for me, but it’s sheer enough that it still works.

The PUR Minerals foundation is amazing, by the way. Here are swatches and a full review. It’s available now at PUR Minerals for $39.  

No brand matches my skin as well as NARS, and I love that NARS Pure Radiant has SPF 30. This was one of my first high-end foundations, and I’ve repurchased it time and again and will probably continue to do so because it’s a great everyday foundation. It’s available now at NARS Cosmetics for $44.

And, just to make sure my face is seriously glowy, I also like to use Pixi by Petra Glow Mist.  It adds glow and helps my makeup last a bit longer. It’s definitely one of my favorite facial mists, and it’s available now at Target for $15.

Brow & lash products

most used makeup

L to R: Glossier Boy Brow in Black, Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Gel in Brown and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I’ve been devoted to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz for years, but for the past month or so I’ve been reaching for brow gel instead.  One reason is that I think my brows have been looking pretty good, and I don’t have any missing patches.

Another reason is that brow gel is just faster, and I like the softer look, too. Glossier Boy Brow in Black has a tiny little wand that makes it easy to add some color and definition to my brows. And then the formula has a stiff, waxy texture, but it’s still really easy to blend.

For an even softer look, Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Gel in Brunette is a bit less opaque, and it’s brown, so it’s great for low-key days when I just want to add a little polish to my face without too much fuss.

It has a more liquid texture than the Glossier one, but both are amazing.

Boy Brow is available now at glossier.com for $16, and you can find Diorshow Brow Styler Gel at Nordstrom for $29.

When it comes to my lashes, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is one of my all-time favorite mascaras ever. It makes my lashes super full and dark, but it doesn’t clump at all. I plan to keep repurchasing it over and over!  

It’s available at Sephora for $23.

Face and lip products
most used cheek products

ColorPop Cosmetics Highlighters in Most Necessary and Butterfly Beach

I am a HUGE ColourPop fan, and I probably wear something from the brand every single day. I use Most Necessary as a blush to add a little color and sheen to my face, and Butterfly Beach is great for adding a natural shine.

Butterfly Beach is also something that I use in my quick post-gym makeup routine.

Plus, both are available at ColourPop for $8!

most used lipsticks

most used lipsticks

I’m most comfortable with either a nude or a pink on my lips because I think they’re great for wearing to work, and I also know they’ll look good with whatever else I’m wearing on my face or body.  

These two are constantly in my purse: In a Nutshell and Frick N’Frack.

In a Nutshell is my new favorite nude lipstick, and it’s only $10 at H&M.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be available online right now, but similar shades are linked here.

For something with a bit more color, I’ve been reaching for Frick N’ Frack by ColourPop. It’s from their new Ultra Satin Lip launch, and I love the finish. I think the color is perfect for everyday. It’s available at ColourPop for $6.

Eyeshadows

most-used-eyeshadow-sticks

I usually don’t find time for eyeshadow on most days, but when I go out at night, I LIVE for smokey eyes.

These NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks make it so easy to get a good smokey eye. I’ve had Aigle Noir (black with green and gold shimmer) since the summer, but I just bought Nunavut (deep purple) when I got my makeup done at the NARS San Francisco boutique a couple weeks ago.

I’ll typically smudge it all over the lid, then blend out the edges with my fingers. Add mascara, and my eyes are done!

The NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks are available at Sephora for $28.
