Both Pretty and Powerful

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, In : Make-up Looks 
As promised in my previous post on Bobbi Brown's newest book, I'm posting looks I created inspired by her Pretty Powerful book using Bobbi's To-Go kit and Extreme Party mascara. 

The To Go Palette houses eight best-selling eyeshadow shades and comes with a shadow brush; The Extreme Party mascara delivers volume, separation and flexibility all at the same time.
 
But before we go into that, I want to share some of the tips and tricks we learned from Kai Vinson, personally trained and handpicked b...

Make-up to Match the Outfit

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, November 18, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
It was cute to see Hilary Swank pair an aqua eyeliner with her aqua-colored dress. Today, I just heard that Diane Kruger used to pick out dresses based on whether they would match her signature red lips. While I'm not thinking "will this halter dress go with my favorite shadow?" when shopping, I definitely put thought into how my makeup will jive with the rest of my outfit. "When I want to stand out, I wear vivid orange-red lips—so I have to make sure my clothes balance them. I usually go w...

Orange is the New Red

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 11, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 

Orange lipstick is one of those bold makeup choices that I always thought was more about the attitude of the wearer than anything about their complexion, style, or any other superficial trait. There's no better time to test your bold attitude than now when the red carpet and runways have been flocked by celebs sporting the funkier version of the classic red. Tangerine, tomato, copper, coral, peach, mango and even a cinnamon orange lipstick is very becoming this year for events, shows and even...

V for Victoria

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, April 26, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
Word is spreading around the blogosphere about Victoria Beckham’s new cover spread for the May issue of Vogue Germany. The conversation mostly surrounds a rather racy image of VB straddling a duck-shaped playground figurine. I, of course, am more concerned with a few particularly noteworthy beauty tricks, courtesy of face painter Fulvia Farolfi and manicurist-to-the-stars Tom Bachik. To properly give Posh the dark, seductive quality appropriate for women who scandalize children’s toys, Fa...

Barbie Pink Lips

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 29, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 


I've been getting a lot of private messages and questions on what lipcolor I used in a picture (see below) I posted in my facebook page. To give an answer to you ladies, it's Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipstick in PK336 (see product shot below). It's a limited edition shade from it's 2007 Spring make-up collection but I just got word from the brand that it has been reinstated as a regular shade (Yayy!). Those who find the shade too bright might want to opt for a paler shade which is more popu...

At Chanel, Everything's Tinted with Black

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 15, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 

Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director of makeup, has a knack for pulling out specific elements of Karl Lagerfeld’s sartorial vision and reinterpreting them in beauty terms. Who could forget Philips’ ivory-coated lash lines and pearl-tipped fingers to complement the house’s all-white Spring ‘09 Couture show, or his jade nail from Fall ‘09, a shade that was plucked directly from the similarly colored tweeds and accessories that Lagerfeld sent down the runway? For Fall '10, Phili...

Is It Spring Yet?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Make-up Looks 
An old British Vogue editorial starring Sasha Pivovarova has been circulating the blogosphere today, thanks to one of my favorite websites devoted to fashion photos, and it’s screaming “spring” in a way that’s made me temporarily forget about the cool chill outside. Go on, take a good long look. Pivovarova, whose angular face is frequently utilized in a hauntingly beautiful kind of way, is the picture of soft romance here thanks to the power of pink. It’s really the trifecta of the ...

The Out-Of-The-Box Alex Box

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, In : Make-up Looks 
Alex Box RankinAs the creative director behind Illamasqua and Gareth Pugh’s go-to makeup artist, Alex Box isn’t really known for her way with the “natural look.” Case in point: For Pugh’s Spring Presentation, Box sent ashen gray faces onto the runway, with red eyes for that extra touch of creepy. Her unique ability to turn cosmetics into conceptual art went on display at Kentish Town’s newly opened Annroy Gallery last week, where Box, clad in a black-and-white sequined Pugh number—with top hat...
