If you are looking to elevate your look this season, I would say choose one or five of the following items, the easiest being #5.
- Something Metallic
- A Plaid Blazer
- Something with a Pop of Color
- A New Pair of Sunnies
- A New Shade of Lipstick
And when I need a new shade of lippy, I go to the experts at the beauty counter. Last week I popped into the Dior Counter at the Nordstrom Hillsdale Store to preview and learn about their upcoming Beauty Trend Event, which runs 10/21/2018-10/27/2018.
Surrounded by all things beautiful, it was a treat to take time out from my busy schedule to be pampered and learn tips and tricks for creating a fresh look with Dior’s new fall colors, from my pal and Dior Business Manager, Lissette Moreno. Like most of you, my schedule can get a little crazy, so when Lissette asked what I wanted to focus on, I asked her to teach me how to go from a daytime natural look to an evening cocktail party, without having to make a stop at home.
With the help of Dior experts, Lissette and Be Philavong, I was given a completely new look – one that can take me day to night – and caught it all in a step-by-step video to share.
Note: Today’s makeover was complimentary and I received a few samples c/o Dior to test out at home to share in today’s post. The Dior 5 Couleures eyeshadow palette and Dior AirFlash Spray Foundation (no longer available) used in today’s video and post was purchased by me on my own dime. I am not affiliated with Dior or Nordstrom. This post Does contain a few affiliate links for your convenience. As always, all opinions are my own.
