Do you have those days when you just feel so lazy to put make-up on? Don't get me wrong, I love—live—for beauty products and truly believe that every women can benefit from a little makeup. But can't I have a day off? As a make-up artist, I'm really not allowed to, but I would love to go out on a Saturday and just let my skin breathe.

Q&A: Make-up Breather

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, January 19, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: I wear makeup everyday. Do I need to take a break from makeup and let my face breathe?

A: If there are no signs of skin sensitivity such as breakouts or redness, then you can continue to wear your makeup daily. Just make sure to remove your makeup every night before hopping into bed to get rid of any bacteria that could clog pores or cause irritation. This also allows your skin to optimally regenerate. Try Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil (₱1,800 - ₱4,800 in Rustan's and Shu Uemura Powerplant),...

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 18, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Three reasons why I love Golden Globes: 
1. It's the bumper start of awards season.

Yellow Skin Is Attractive

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, January 16, 2011, In : News 
Just in case you were looking for another good reason to eat your vegetables, here it is: They make you beautiful—and not just in some vague, a-good-diet-gives-you-a-healthy-glow sense. Researchers at St. Andrews and Bristol universities in Great Britain studied the relationship between skin color and attractiveness, and discovered that people with yellow undertones to their skin were thought to look particularly healthy and attractive. The study, reported in the Daily Mail, also establishe...

Supernatural Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, January 12, 2011, In : Reviews 
I have been wanting to jump on the mineral make-up bandwagon for years but I just had too many make-up in my arsenal, I needed to fight the temptation for another make-up spree.

The runways reported Spring beauty trends for 2011 to be all about metallics. However, since we're in a country with high humidity, I doubt that it would look flattering on everyone especially on those with oily skin. The best compromise -- a bit of highlighter. So here I offer some advice on how to pull off shimmering highlighter without looking like you were soaked in grease. 

1. Let skin glow. For a subtle sheen, mix a pea-size drop of highlighter with foundation in your palm before applyin...
