Perfectly Adorned Face

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, In : Trend Reports 

 
The opening day of London Fashion Week may have been all about the new collections but more than the clothes, we beauty junkies also watch out for the hair and make-up trends. With the return of avant-garde, 3-D makeup on the catwalks, it is perhaps to be expected that new products that allow you to graft carefully shaped, intricately designed adornments directly onto your face in lieu of eye shadow and blush would be hitting the market. Face Lace, a new makeup concept from Phyllis Cohen, th...

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 ...

How difficult can Christmas shopping be? Well, if you're like me who hates traffic and crowded malls, super!

Q&A: Waking Up with Pillow Creases

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: I always wake up with pillow creases on my face. What's the fastest way to remove and smooth them away?

A: Splash warm water on your skin, then massage in a moisturizer. Skin cells contain fluid that acts as a cushion to keep the skin plump. When you're lying with your face smushed into a pillow for eight hours, that fluid seeps out of cells and is absorbed by your body. This leads to creases! Once you get out of bed, skin cells will gradually plump up with fluid. The warm water speeds this...

24-Hour Tattoo Eye Liners

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, December 12, 2011, In : Reviews 
Lately, I've noticed to have increasing number of young clients who are having their eyebrows and lash lines tattooed. By young I mean those in their late 20's and early 30's. Good thing there are already beauty salons offering good shades of brown that would look natural and won't turn green or gray as years pass. Unfortunately, there's still the pain factor that most women cannot tolerate and the healing time that they can't wait out.

Good news! K-Palette, the Japanese brand that specializes...

It's a Holiday of Benefits!

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, November 29, 2011, In : Reviews 
Three months ago, I got one of the best news a make-up addict can ever receive -- Benefit Cosmetics is finally opening in Manila! It took so much patience and willpower to not let the news out in my blog (until everyone blogged about it about a month ago!), but I finally decided that 2 weeks before its opening would be the perfect timing to write about it. And as if my timing wasn't perfect enough, I got an invite to the sneak peak of the brand before it opens!

Koh Gen Do in Manila

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, November 6, 2011, In : Announcements 
With the advent of high definition technology, upgrading my make-up to high definition was only but necessary. Since 2009, I’ve been on the lookout for the best high-def make-up there is in the market. Oh there are lots of them – but only in the US. Sadly, we only have a good few ones to choose from in our shelves. So when I learned that Koh Gen Do finally arrived in our shores, I definitely opened up my schedule to attend their launch.

Fall 2011 Top 10 Beauty Trends

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, October 27, 2011, In : Trend Reports 
Crackle nail polish; orange eyeshadow; hair feathers. The beauty trends of spring and summer were audacious, bohemian, and sometimes, downright insane.

Luckily, for our beauty sanity, the trends for this fall are way more understated. Models on runways were rocking modern takes on classic looks with bold brows, skin-flattering lip colors, and barely there foundation. Here are 10 makeup looks from Fall 2011 Fashion Week that will help you tiptoe into the new season.

Dior Meows For Fall

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, In : Collection 
Though a fan of anything fab, I'm kind of a bit allergic to trends especially if it goes "too mainstream". But I can't help but love leopard print the way almost everyone loves it now. Scarves, dresses, shoes, even phone accessories, you name it -- I seem to have hoarded them all. And the one more thing I'm eyeing right now that would make me fully embrace the jungle and prowl the sidewalks of autumn is Dior's Mitzah Bricard-inspired limited edition make-up collection. For fall, Dior has rele...

Blush To Flatter

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, July 18, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: I'm not comfortable wearing too much make-up on and I only like to put on blush and nothing else. Do you think blush is enough to enhance my face? Can you please give me tips on how to enhance my features with just blush?

A: Expertly applied blush can shape and define your face, creating the illusion of cheekbones that don't exist—and it's easier to do than you think.

To thin a round face: Start your blush at the apples, then brush it along the cheekbones all the way up to the temple...

Q&A: Disguise Dark Circles

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, June 14, 2011, In : Tips 
Q: How do I shift attention away from my dark under-eye circles! Even if I pile on concealer, they are still visible. Help!

A: If you're using the right product, there's no need to pile on too much. Regular concealers can only do so much. For really bad under-eye circles, you might need to use color correctors or neutralizers. For dark circles, which usually are bluish and purplish, mix your regular concealer with an orange corrector. Some beauty brands like Max Factor manufacture salmon hue...

"You're looking at the first unretouched makeup ad", reads this ad for Makeup For Ever's HD High Definition foundation. The first of the Make Up For Ever unretouched ads, which appeared in U.S. magazines this week, shows a model holding up a camera to take a photograph of herself.

Given that most foundation ads are airbrushed to perfection, we usually take claims of flawless skin with a pinch of salt. So the beauty brand's decision to publish the world's first unretouched make-up campaign is ...

H&M Cosmetics

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, February 23, 2011, In : Reviews 
During my short trip to Hong Kong last week, I finally had the chance to check out H&M's cosmetic line. I wasn't really excited to see it. I mean, I'd probably be better off buying from a brand that makes cosmetics, not clothes. And it's a good thing I didn't expect so much because really, there was a lot of cosmetics but I hardly had the desire to buy any of it. Here's why:


Presentation looks cheap, so as the plastics they're enclosed in.

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.

How to Wear Highlighter

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.

Red lips are perfect holiday party makeup—I can't think of anything else that looks as instantly sexy or festive—but they do require some TLC. Here's some tricks on how to achieve the perfect red lips for the holidays.


 
Find your best red. If you want to try something trendy, orange-red lips are popular right now. And as for skin tone, orange-red works on mostly everyone, though it can bring out any yellow in your teeth. If you want to play it safe, a blue-based classic red is universally ...

The Power of Red Lips

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, December 15, 2010, In : News 
Apparently, a new study from Manchester University found that men notice lips far more than other features on the face. Scientists used eye-tracking software to show that, in ten seconds, men will spend more than half of that time staring at a woman’s lips. Geoff Beattie, who led the investigation, examines the red lip trend that started way before Swift took the stage (or was even born). “Our research suggests that lip color and perceived attractiveness are still inextricably linked, wit...

Lip Mattifier

The latest on lip make-up innovation? A lip primer that mattifies any lipstick while at the same time providing moisture to the lips. Chapped-lip season is not quite the best time for a matte lip (as most matte-finish lipsticks have drying ingredients that flakes the lips). As temperatures continue their downward spiral and our shiny lip balm usage continues to climb, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain a perfectly glisten-less texture. But leave it to Serge Lutens to offer up a sol...

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.

Portman wore a floral Rodarte dress showcasing a makeup look that was equally in bloom at the screening of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, the film where Natalie Portman starred . To bring out the pinks and purples in the strapless frock, she chose to apply a concentrated amount of pink blush on the apples of her cheeks and a pink-violet sheer lipstick for an equally rosy pout. With her new Dior cosmetics contract (look out for Portman in ad visuals beginning next year), the brand’s new Ro...

Evil Reigns in MAC

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, October 4, 2010, In : Collection 


Aside from its highly pigmented formulas, MAC is also known for numerous genius collaborations. From Hello Kitty to Barbie to Liberty of London to Stacey Bendet, MAC really knows how to make its users queue for limited edition cosmetic collectibles. As of the end of Septemnber, the beauty giant unveils its latest launch, Venomous Villains, which came as a result from a partnership with Disney. Rather than curate a collection around much-loved heroines, attention was turned to the bad guys—o...

Affordable Bright Lipsticks

Posted by Dior Co on Sunday, October 3, 2010, In : Reviews 
When the year started, all beauty junkies were off to the counters for the search for the best bright lipstick there is. The hunt went on as the trend dominated not only the catwalks, but the red carpet as well. Up until now, I still get a lot of queries as to where to find the best bright lippies even if 2011 is about to close in. Today, I'm not only giving you the scoop on what brands carry the best bright shades, but also which brands have the most affordable ones! I wouldn't want you ladi...

Are You Photo-ready?

Posted by Dior Co on Thursday, September 23, 2010, In : Reviews 
As promised in my last blog post on HD make-up, I'll be recommending an HD make-up worth investing in. The only HD make-up I ever trusted was Makeup For Ever for its Invisible Cover Foundation and Microfinishing Powder. However lately, I've been hearing a lot of good word about Revlon's PhotoReady Make-up, particularly its liquid foundation. The said product promises to give a poreless, airbrushed skin with its photochromatic pigments that bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. While at ...

Perfect Arch Eyebrow Kit

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 18, 2010, In : Reviews 

Most people I know rely on pencils when defining their brows as it's the easiest way to "draw". However, it gives out that "drawn on" look with those, making brows look harsh and unnatural. As for powders, I feel that the loose pigments make the brows look bland and inexact. Personally, I prefer shading my arches with cake or wax product as the moist texture makes brows look more groomed afterwards, and it leaves a nice tint that makes your brows look more distinct. The pigments are not as vi...

How To Pull Off Bright Lips

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, August 17, 2010, In : Tips 



Cherry red, hot pink, tangerine... The entirety of Milan to New York to Tokyo has been loud enough to express lip color boldness this year. However, in a still conservative country like ours, we still find ourselves hesitant to venture into boldness together with those trend-setting nations. I've been blogging about some bold lip colors lately, specifically
barbie pink and orange, and have gotten some feedback from my readers as to how to pull off such show-stopping hues. Here's my answer to ...

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...

Don't Waste Your Eye Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, August 11, 2010,


There's nothing worse (in the world of makeup) than spending the time applying your makeup only to go out of the house to find minutes, hours, later it looks like you have no makeup on. As a make-up artist, it is my duty that the make-up I do on my clients stays as long as it needs to be. You'll probably see half a dozen of primers if you dig into my make-up kit. And it's a no miss that you'll always see this eyeshadow base in my arsenal. This genie in a bottle fulfills three of an artist's w...

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...

Make-up for Glasses Wearers

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, May 24, 2010, In : Tips 


Glasses and makeup altogether tends to be a bit of a tricky topic. I don't have the perfect 20/20 vision but my eyes only need some help when reading small-script texts. As for those who need to where glasses and even for contact lens wearers (you girls still need to give your eyes a rest from those miracle lenses!), glasses can either make your eyes look bigger or smaller, depending on your lens. For example, those who are near-sighted have glass lenses that tend to make their eyes look smal...

Summer-Proof Your Make-up

Posted by Dior Co on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, In : Tips 
summerproof_main.jpgMakeup is meant for your face—but keeping it there gets a lot harder once summer hits. Here are some helpful tips on how to stop the stuff from melting into your Pimms cup when the mercury rises.
 
Prime.
 Primers are lightweight, so you won't feel the extra layer on your skin, but you will notice that your base and blush last much longer. After you've washed and moisturized your face, smooth on a pea-size drop of oil-free makeup primer (such as Laura Mercier Oil-free Foundation Primer). [Avai...

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...

The Perfect Lipstick Shade for Spring

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, In : Reviews 


I always find myself mixing two to three lipstick shades to achieve a perfect I'm in the mood for, despite having more than 50 lipsticks in my stack-pile in my make-up arsenal. It just seems to be impossible to find the perfect shade of lipstick I want in a tube! But, as my Spring make-up newest find would prove, it still is possible. Guerlain Galia (#3) Rouge G Lipstick is a pink-beige nude lipstick with a creamy, lightly glossy look. It has no real detectable shimmer, but it has this soft s...

Marais Prefers To Stay Outside The Lines

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, March 9, 2010,

 
























Those of you following Fall beauty trends at the Fashion week would have already noticed the eyeshadow dominance on runways. But after seeing some interesting liner work at Jean Paul-Gaultier last Saturday, I thought I’d take a minute to ruminate on pencils and liquid fine-point pens. While cat-eyes in varying thicknesses have shown up at many shows, seems like we're dealing with something else entirely at Gaultier. "His collection was influenced by the world traveler,” Guido Palau menti...

Sandra Bullock: Best of Oscars 2010

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, March 8, 2010, In : Celebrities 

Days before the Academy Awards, critics were saying Sandra Bullock had a very odd chance of winning the Oscar. Well, the actress didn't think so as she came in the show red-carpet ready, prepped with Best Actress-caliber beauty by Glam Squad headed by celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin for Chanel Beauty and hairstylist Adir Abergel for Frédéric Fekkai.

Sandra looked absolutely deserving of the award she took home with her modern-classy Hollywood makeup: dewy skin, soft eyes, and a bold red...

Last year, I let you in on the well-guarded secret about MAC’s newest Viva Glam campaign stars, and finally, after months of embargoes, I've got the dish on the products they’ll actually be hawking. The "From Our Lips" edition of MAC’s successful charitable franchise, which donates 100 percent of the proceeds generated from the sales of limited-edition products to the MAC AIDS Fund, features two pink lipsticks—Cyndi Lauper’s rose-watermelon hue and Lady Gaga’s bubblegum pink.

Lipstain Marker Pen?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, February 9, 2010, In : Reviews 
Everyone who has gotten close to my personal beauty kit knows that I'm not a lipstick girl. I'm one of people who just can't stand having color stains on her coffee cups. However, because of my naturally pale lips, I need to add a hint of color. It's been 8 years now since I started using cheek and lip stains on my pucker but it has always been an issue to me the delivery system of the product. I can't afford a change of clothes if ever the product drops on my top! Thank God Covergirl introdu...

To mark the first anniversary, they’ll release the Roses Collection this month. Each of the five new pout perfecters has been designed in homage to an antique wild rose that has been cultivated as a modern hybrid and bears a subtle fragrance akin to that of Sicily’s famed floral gardens.

Red Lips at the Golden Globes

Minimally glamorous beauty accessorized what seemed to be a never-ending assortment of one-shouldered dresses at Sunday night’s rainy Golden Globes ceremony. Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Drew Barrymore fought the weather with sleek, pulled-back chignons, while Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock worked lower, looser side-parted adaptations of the same style. There were some updo dissenters as well, with Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts bucking the humidity and keeping their tresses...

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 ...

Guerlain’s New Météorites

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Reviews 
When Guerlain launched its Météorites collection way back in 1987, it revolutionized the practice of applying powder. Run-of-the-mill pressed powders in a range of nude colors were replaced by colorful cardboard boxes filled with luminescent balls in skin-correcting shades, allegedly inspired by Marie Antoinette’s own makeup arsenal. For spring, the brand has reformulated the popular product and relaunched it in a newly designed, marbleized compact. You still get the subtle violet scent f...

Twilight Make-up Collection

Posted by Dior Co on Monday, December 7, 2009, In : Collection 

Back in the day, Interview with the Vampire was one of my fave movies while Buffy the Vampire Slayer became an obsession of most. But I must admit that I came to theTwilight saga a little later than most.  And while I can’t claim that I read the books, there is no denying that most (especially girls) found a certain addictive quality to them. Last week, I myself devoured New Moon, the second of the Twilight Saga series, the movie.

There's no surprise that most companies are making the most o...

Leighton Meester Gets Cheeky

Leighton Meester is doing for blush what Blair Waldorf did for the headband; the perfectly pink cheek is becoming her signature. At last night’s Swarovski-hosted book launch for Gossip Girlcostume designer Eric Daman’sYou Know You Want It: Style-Inspiration-Confidence, the show’s star placed the happy hue on her apples and dragged it outward toward her cheekbones for contouring. I, too have been feeling a little rouge of late, and have been leaning toward liquid and cream formulations, ...

Michael Kors Does Make-up

Michael Kors is the latest designer to embrace the world of color cosmetics. The Project Runway judge has inked a deal with Estée Lauder to bring his "Very Hollywood" concept from fragrance to makeup. Scheduled to launch in January, the 19-piece line is awash in beige, corals, pinks, and shimmer. Less about “heavy makeup” than it is about a “sporty glow,” the collection is an homage to a low-key, modern Hollywood glamour that the designer equates with wearing flip-flops and eating gr...

Aqua Eyes Collector Set

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

Fine art and makeup artistry share many similarities as media. The precision and skill it takes to put charcoal to paper or brush to canvas are duly needed for placing pigment on lips and eyes. Make Up For Ever presents perhaps the best example of this crossover, seeing as how its founder, Dany Sanz, essentially introduced the concept of body painting to Europe in the seventies, ultimately creating a line of professional cosmetics to be used on stage, on screen, on the runway, and eventually ...

Brooke Shields' Brows at Alexander Wang

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 

Nothing says “American sportswear” quite like the image of the girl-next-door models that dominated the 1970's and early eighties —Brooke Shields, more specifically whose long locks and big bushy brows defined the era. To properly simulate the Blue Lagoon star backstage at Alexander Wang 2 days ago, Redken’s Guido Palau added long extensions to models’ hair for drama, prepping them with a thickening lotion to provide a texturized, matte effect. Then he crafted thick, low-slung braid...

Colored Mascara, Anyone?

Posted by Dior Co on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, In : Trend Reports 
I’ve always been slightly on the fence about colored mascaras. In theory, they strike us as an interesting way to do something a little different with your typical beauty routine; in practice, they come across more juvenile than chic. They are here to stay, though, at least for the short term, making appearances in a slew of recent color collections, from YSL to Estee Lauder, and at yesterday’s DKNY show. “Donna [Karan] wanted something youthful and fresh with a fun accent,” makeup ar...

Alright. We may only be three days into the spring shows, but we’re going to go ahead and call it: the Statement Lip is here to stay, with the season’s predictable nudes and sheer pastel glosses being replaced by the deep, opulent pouts popular for Fall. Lucia Pieroni’s handiwork backstage at Jason Wu yesterday sealed the deal. In an attempt to recreate a “Tim Burton girl with big, simple sparkling eyes and amazing lips,” Pieroni came up with three different lip shades, each more de...

90% of make-up artists I know in the industry share one distinct obsession: mascara. No matter how great your eyeshadow or blush or lipstick application you did, it wouldn't be complete without enhancing those lashes. Just see of how the eyelash perming and weaving business skyrocketed in the past year and you'd know how women adores long lush prettied up lashes.


I myself spend not so much on buying expensive mascaras as I always toss them once they're three months old. I find it impractical...

I was doing my last-minute shopping before leaving L.A. and as always, I needed to stop by Sephora.
