Last weekend I attended a wedding in San Francisco and stopped into the Dior counter at Saks for a makeup application before the event. (If you are ever at Saks in SF, ask for Sheyla – she is fantastic). I’ve gotten lots of makeup done at department store counters, and they have been hit or miss. I had a great experience this time, and left with a few fun products that I wanted to share with you.
Brows: It’s amazing how defined brows can really change up your look. But just by filling in my very blonde brows with Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil ($28) my eyes popped. This easy little tool comes in a universal shade and fills in brows easily and quickly.
Eyeliner: Knowing I was headed to a wedding, I knew that I might cry (yes, I am one of those people). But Dior Crayon Eyeliner Waterproof ($29) lasted the entire evening and then washed off when I wanted it to. I used Intense Brown (#594).
Eye Shadow: Quite the beauty splurge, Dior’s 5-Colour Eyeshadow palettes ($58) allow you to try like 20 different color combos, making them well worth the $58 price tag. I picked up the Rosy Tan (#754) palette for the warm pink, brown and peach tones.
Lips: All glosses are not created equal! Dior Addict Ultra Gloss ($27.50) goes on smooth, not sticky, and lasts through the champagne toast. The very sheer Pink Veil (#654) color is one I will wear alone or over a darker color. This is a lip gloss I might have to hide from my daughter. She tends to over apply!
