Second Year of SM Lipstick Fest

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, August 15, 2016, In : Announcements

Some of the participating brands were crowd favorites such as BYS, Sleek Makeup, L’Oreal, Maybelline, Revlon, MaxFactor, OFRA Cosmetics, Happy Skin, Catrice, Nichido and many more.

Review: NARCISO Fragrance

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, In : Reviews 
I remember it was just a decade ago when I couldn't care less about fragrances and scents. In my younger years, I just felt there was no need to veil yourself with too much scent (that costs too much too!) as long as you shower religiously. But as I grew older and maybe, just maybe wiser, I've come to appreciate fragrances. I even see it as a fashion accessory -- like a train of a gown that leaves the last impression to your audience.

I've been collecting numerous bottles for years now, but I...

My Top Four Moisturizers

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 17, 2015, In : Reviews 
Always complaining that I 'shine' easily midday, I notice that that rarely happens. I don't know if it's just because I'm months away from turning 30 and my skin is slowly in the ageing process of producing less oil, or that the rainy season just makes anyone's skin a bit drier than usual. 

Two months ago, I dug up my personal beauty shelf to see the moisturisers I have in hand and tried about ten of them and rank the top three. I couldn't decide on the third one so I decided to review the bes...

Guerlain KissKiss Style Icons

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, September 19, 2014, In : Events 
When I first got a call from Guerlain asking if I'd agree to be one of their style icons, I was absolutely caught off guard. One of my favorite fragrance and makeup brands reached out to me and wants me to be a part of their campaign? I was stunned with gratitude and honor and of course, I said yes.



Just to give you a quick background on how the Guerlain's revamped KissKiss lipsticks were created, let me post a few words from Guerlain's creative director.



Guerlain has chosen 12 style icons for ...

La Petite Robe Noire, or The Little Black Dress, is back, with a new fragrance and a glamorous new outfit, embodying the very essence of Parisian glamour. Behold, La Petite Robe Noire Couture -- the third one to add to the existing Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum variants.

Burt's Bees Daisy White

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, May 13, 2014, In : Events 
Burt's Bees has come a long way since the days when its founder used beeswax to make lip balm that grew to be one of the most coveted in the industry. I'm thrilled to share that Burt's Bees has launched a whitening line called the Daisy White. I know a lot of people who jumped into the organic bandwagon years ago in terms of the food that they consume and with the makeup they use. Now, Burt's Bees is giving us the chance to experience organic skincare too!

Last week, they held a blogger's eve...

Katie Holmes for Bobbi Brown

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 10, 2012, In : Announcements 
Just last week, Katie Holmes was announced to be the first ever celebrity face of Bobbi Brown. The famous makeup artist who's been around for more than 20 years now said she chose Katie for very specific reasons. Here’s what she had to say:

“Katie Holmes epitomizes the modern ‘Bobbi woman’… I think of her as the modern day Ali McGraw, who I have always admired. She's a classic natural beauty, entrepreneur, and mother. When I met her, I thought she was a natural fit for my brand, and ...

Elie Saab: From Couture to Perfume

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 10, 2012, In : Reviews 
Do you remember those moments in your life when you fell in love at first sight? One of those moments I could vividly remember was when I was 17, watching FTV for the first time. I wasn't really into fashion. The only personality that time whose fashion I adored was Carrie Bradshaw's -- until that time when Elie Saab's haute couture line was showed in FTV. That was his first year of fashion week (he was just new in the industry then), and amongst all the designers that came out in that segmen...

Oscar de la Renta Nails

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, In : News 
You'd know a certain fashion house or brand is growing when it starts expanding. And what better way to do so than by growing your business from fashion to the beauty industry. This seemed to be a trend that started a couple of years ago when such designers such as Tom Ford and Michael Kors diversified their business from apparel to cosmetics. Today, one of my favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta, just launched to the public its to-die-for first-ever beauty products in its line -- nail polis...

Q&A: Everyday Makeup

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 15, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: What is considered everyday makeup and how do you bump it up into an evening look? 

A
: It depends on person to person what they consider as everyday makeup. There is really no rule. Personally, I believe that everyday makeup shouldn't look overdone; it's applied in such a way that a woman looks radiant and lit from within. That when people look at you, they don't notice what lipstick or blush you're using and instead they see you -- only better. It involves only a few choices of cosmetic it...

What's In My Personal Makeup Kit?

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, June 27, 2012, In : Reviews 
Every girl has more than one make-up kit. Three seems to be the average for us ladies. Last week, a friend was going through my purse insisting that she wants to see what beauty loot I have in there (more on this in my next blog entry). And since it seems to be the number question “What make-up do you use, Dior?” of my clients and readers alike, I'm finally posting an entry on it. 

As I said, no woman is satisfied with just one kikay kit. Today, let me show you what’s in my personal mak...

Q&A: Make-up Artist Attire

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 9, 2012, In : Tips 
Q: Hi Dior! I'm starting my journey into making makeup artistry as a career. Just a question, what do you wear when on the job?

A: When I went to my makeup training schools, they always advise us to wear black. They say it's the signature "makeup artist attire." The same thing was followed when I was in L'Oreal. I did retail training for the beauty advisers of Shu Uemura and the rule was to have all our makeup artists wear black. Well it only makes sense -- black looks professional, it almost ...

Estee Lauder Make-over

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, January 9, 2012, In : Reviews 
As a child, I've always been fascinated with my mom's make-up kit, figuring out what the weird looking eyelash curler is for and which color to put on what area on my face. One of the brands she always keep is Estee Lauder. I guess because of this, I've always labeled Estee Lauder as a beauty brand for the "mature" and the "old". Subconsciously, I've never really considered adding any Estee Lauder product both in my personal and professional kit, until I was asked to do a stint for them last ...

Unfurgivable

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, January 6, 2012, In : Announcements 
Unlike most women, I highly crave meat and protein-rich food than carbs. I'd gladly pass up on dessert to devour a lean piece of steak. I cannot give up eating meat, though I've tried doing so a couple of times in 2006 after seeing a video on animal rights by PETA. It has saddened me to realize I can never be a vegetarian. But even so, I still advocate animal rights, being a pet owner myself. So here's something to help support an advocacy on animal rights:

Tattooed

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, September 27, 2010, In : Reviews 
Though still a taboo to most today, tattoo has gotten its way into mainstream as celebrities and models are getting inked. I had my first one during my stint in LA where almost everyone I met was sporting one. It didn’t take long before I convinced myself to join the club since my classmate works at a tattoo place as a piercer. I wanted a text that would remind me of a certain significant time in my life and since I was taking up Masters program in make-up artistry that time, I decided that...

Tom Ford, The Make-up Artist?

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, May 28, 2010, In : News 

tomfordlipsticks_main.jpgThe designer-turned-perfumer-turned-movie director can now add "makeup artist" to his resumé, as his Private Blend Lip Color Collection, a line of 12 lipsticks, debuts at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue on June 1. Each tube is $45, which isn't cheap by any lipstick standard, but here's why I love them: These little babies are pigment-rich, so a little goes a long way. There's an array of pretty, flattering reds, nudes, and pinks. They're semi-matte, but feel creamy going on and don't dry...

Tom Pecheux’s Fancy New Title

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, November 9, 2009, In : News 
Tom Pecheux has always been one of my favorite makeup artists. There’s his soft-spoken French accent and his perfectly calm, collected, and kind demeanor during the craziness that is fashion week, but what really gets me is his expert ability to paint faces in a natural and beautiful way. There’s also something cool about the fact that despite his early links to Shiseido, he’s been answering to no one for the past few seasons. While his equally renowned peers snatched up creative direct...

Gina Brooke for Vivienne Tam

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : News 
Those who know me well know that I am marginally obsessed with Gina Brooke. The Shu Uemura Artistic Director known for her dedication to great skin above all, Brooke is the only person Madonna lets tend to her increasingly youthful complexion for personal appearances and live shows. I got word a few weeks ago that Brooke, fresh off Madge’s Sticky & Sweet tour, would be making a rare appearance at the tents to key the makeup team at Vivienne Tam, which made the designer’s show last night a...

The Maker of J. Lo's Signature Look

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, July 21, 2009, In : Interviews 
The fact that Jennifer Lopez ascribes to the gospel of La Mer for her perfectly smooth, radiant skin is fairly common knowledge, although her signature bronzed glow has little to do with the miracle cream. Chalk that up to the self-described “King of Bling” makeup artist Scott Barnes, who has been tending to the singer-turned-actress’ honey-gold complexion since Jenny from the Block became J. Lo. I caught up on an interview article with Barnes on the set of Lopez’s new flick, The Back...
