Look Of The Day: Dior Skyline

Dior Skyline Collection Fall 2016

It’s been ages since I’ve done a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve a ‘look of the day’. This time, I’ve created a radiant, natural look with the Dior Skyline Collection that launched August 1, 2016. The products are now available in stores and online.

Dior1-3

1. Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream | Apply an eye cream under the eyes to add extra moisture to help concealer not settle into fine lines and provide a perfect canvas for application.
2. philosophy hope in a jar | My favourite moisturizer, it makes my skin look dewy, and healthy looking. Apply a generous amount to the face, and don’t forget the neck!
3. Diorskin Forever Foundation |  Use your favourite foundation to create a natural, or full-coverage look to your face. I mixed the shades 10, and 30 together to create a shade to suit my skintone.

Dior4-6Steps 4 through 6 is all about concealing.

4. Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) Green | If you have red undertones like myself, twist up the green shade of the Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) and pop it on any places you feel that need to be neutralized. Read more about Fix-It Colour’s on my previous blog post
5. Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) Yellow | Dark under eyes? Use the yellow corrector to brighten up any dark circles. Read more about Fix-It Colour’s on my previous blog post.
6. Cle de Peau concealer | To cover up any yellow tones you put down under the eyes, lightly apply a creamy concealer and dab to blend in the colour with your ring finger.

Hydrating my under eyes with DHC revitalizing moisture strips

DHC-packageAhh, spa night I look forward to you. I try to have a pamper session once every two weeks, and last night was one of them. I popped on some DHC revitalizing moisture strips under my eyes and left them on as long as possible. It says on the box you could wear them 20-30 minutes, or leave them on overnight. I wore them a bit in between. Stuck them to my face around 8pm and kept them on til I went to bed around 10:30.

If you’re wondering how comfortable they were, I didn’t notice any irritation on my sensitive skin. My under eye area is extremely dry, which is why I need to use my Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair cream twice a day, but cannot afford to do so, so I only use it once a day lol.

Bobbi Brown Tube Tint + Video

headerIt’s my first time working with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, and by now, if you’ve been reading my blog even a week you’ll know how much I enjoy Bobbi Brown products — mainly her skincare line, especially that wonderful Extra Eye Repair cream of hers. Hoooooo-wee. If I had shares in that, I’d be worth somethin’.

Needless to say, I’m pretty stoked I get to work with them. Let’s hope I can continue a working relationship. Because not only is the skincare line A+, the makeup is pretty wicked too. I’ve been posting sneak peeks on instagram for a few weeks, but only now posting about it here on the blog. Let’s get to the products that I’ve been using every.single.day.

Bobbi Brown Tube Tints are a moisturizing lipgloss that hydrates the lips. It’s not sticky, or tacky or sticks to your hair, and all the colours below are so easy to apply without a mirror. Can you guess which shade is my favourite? Also, make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see the colours on my lips in a YouTube video!
