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...

Pretty Powerful Book Launch

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, In : Reviews 
In this day and age, women have taken their share in the world almost as equally as men. There are still some gender discrimination and stereotypes, but we've gone a long, long way. To celebrate this new-found freedom and independence, Bobbi Brown released her seventh beauty book entitled Pretty Powerful: Beauty Stories to Inspire Confidence - a makeup manual that does not just inspire to achieve 'pretty', but 'powerful' as well.

You: Being Beautiful

Posted by Dior Co on Friday, October 8, 2010, In : Reviews 
YOU: Being Beautiful: The Owner's Manual to Inner and Outer Beauty is the follow-up book to Roizen and Oz's current bestseller YOU: Staying Young. The book gives a holistic approach to beauty as it targets three dimensions of beauty: looking beautiful, feeling beautiful and being beautiful. I've got this for myself in 2008 but didn't really have the chance to open it until yesterday when I was looking for a book to start after finishing my last fiction.

As described by Amazon:

"In this book, Dr...

Just in time for No More Dirty Looks, a new eco-guide to finding safe and clean personal care products.

Hair'em, Scare'em

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, In : Reviews 
Forget oil pastels and watercolors. Hair is emerging as both artistic medium and muse of late. Between architectural experiments on runway and recent films like Chris Rock’s Good Hair, shiny, frizzy, straight, and curly strands alike are taking center stage. Hair’em Scare’em (Gestalten, 2009) will be released stateside this month and aims to add to this increasingly popular discourse with 224 pages of artistic expression in graphic, interior, fashion, and jewelry design as well as photo...

The A-Z Guide on Perfumes

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, In : Reviews 

Fragrance can be a mystifying beast. With all the celebrity endorsements, eye-catching bottles, elaborate marketing campaigns, and expansive ingredients lists, it’s often hard to sort out the winners from the stinkers. Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez set out to do just that with their new book, Perfumes: The A-Z Guide (Penguin; 2009). A leading scholar in the field of olfactory science (and the subject of Chandler Burr’s tomeThe Emperor of Scent), Turin brings his renowned expertise to the t...
