This season sees the arrival of the new Dior Skin Nude makeup collection. Within this range
are the wonderful Rouge Nude Lipsticks. Available in 10 "blush"shades (£25 each), these
lipsticks have a balm like formula which leaves lips hydrated perfect for the winter season.
With colours in either a creamy warm or cool tone, these sophisticated lipsticks last for
hours. There is a Rouge Nude to suit every skin tone. Favourites are Esquisse (berry nude)
and Grege (dusky rose nude) as seen on Natalie Portman in the Dior ad

How to create a flawless face - choosing the right foundation

Posted: 30 September 2012 15:53

As a makeup artist, I am asked many beauty related questions but the two most popular
requests are 1. how to create a smokey eye and 2. how to choose and apply the perfect

Choosing a foundation usually takes time and is a lot about trial and error. There are many
factors to consider when foundation shopping. Such as, type - liquid, cream or tinted
moisturiser? Coverage - light, medium or heavy? Undertone - pink or yellow? Skin type -
dry, oily or combination? Will one foundation be exactly right or will I have to buy two to
colour match my skin (I do this for myself on a daily basis). Which brand suits me and which
brand caters for my skin tone? As noted this is not always a quick and easy task but putting in
the work will leave you with a foundation ideal for your skin.
Next step - how to perfectly apply foundation to create a flawless face? Tips and tricks. I am
happy to answer these and any other beauty questions and am available for personalised
make-up lessons.

A hot trend for Autumn/Winter 2012 is dark red lips. Hugely popular in the late
nineties, this look is making a major comeback this season. Pair a dark red lip with a
neutral eye on a perfectly applied base. With so many different shades of red
available, in crimson, cherry, wine, the choices are endless.

Here are my favourites to create this look
Mac Rebel - berry with a hint of purple
Dior Belissima - sheer yet build able cherry red
Nars Afghan Red - muted raspberry
Guerlain Gigolo - intense red plum
YSL Forbidden Burgundy Rouge Volupte Lipstick - glossy creamy plum


Must Have
The award winning Ren Moroccan Rose Otto Sugar Body Polish is a winner for
many reasons. Instead of the usual salt scrub, Ren uses sugar which leaves skin silky
smooth yet irritation free which can occur from salt on broken skin. Using olive and
almond oils and fragranced with subtle rose, skin stays soft and scented for hours.
This scrub is the ideal product to incorporate into your beauty regime.

Trendy nails
Create a very on trend manicure with Dior Golden Jungle Collection Vernis Duo.
This gold and khaki set is an interesting combination that really stands out. First
apply the gold polish as a base coat then add the khaki topcoat to create a crocodile
crackle effect. The gold polish can also be worth alone and is almost identical to
Chanel's limited edition Diwali (a great substitute, if you missed Diwali)
