Flawless Finish: Dior DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation

As we all know I'm a SLAVE to the MAC brand and am pretty much as Loyal as it gets, however while perusing the various makeup counters at Bloomingdales, I was magnetically drawn to the Dior counter, and more specifically the DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation. The initial attraction was based on the similarities between this product and MAC's Studio Mist Foundation. Both were foundations, in a spray can, that were comparable to airbrush makeup, however after experiencing the DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation it became clear to me that the technology and quality of this product far surpassed that of MAC's discontinued version. This ultra fluid mist spray delivers a smooth and natural finish that is both flawless and fresh. The foundation can be used in conjunction with a sheer concealer but works well at diminishing fine lines and camouflaging uneven skin on its own. Be sure to apply to skin that is clean, moisturized and primed to achieve the maximum effect. Spray a small amount of the product directly onto skin and immediately buff in with a stippling brush. This product retails for $60 and can be purchased online via,, and Also, visit any Sephora, Bloomingdales or Dior stand alone store to experience and/or purchase the product. I promise you will DIE FOR IT!

Spring 2011 Trend: Pretty Pastel Eyes

Hello Dolls! It's been far too long since the last time we conversed. Life took over and I was forced to concede, however I'm happy to be back sharing makeup (and fashion) tips, tricks & looks with you all of you Fabs. It is super hard to believe that it is already January 2011 and Spring is right around the corner, which is from where the inspiration for this post derived. We all know that I love GLAM GLAM GLAM and Pastel Eyes give Glam but in a subtle manner. The genius of Pastel Eyes is that it looks great on virtually everyone and suits a plethora of personalities & ages, depending upon the shade selection and the application technique(s). Create a look that's soft and fun for those GORG Spring days!!

To add more GLAM to the look, apply a layer of irridescent shadow or loose glitter in the same hue over the shadow and/or load the lower lashes with colored mascara in the same hue. AMAZING!
