#dillardsbeauty : Blogger Beauty Event with Dior
Last Saturday, I spent a much needed afternoon with my blogger friends at Dillard’s Wolfchase to get one on one beauty experiences with the different makeup counters. Myself, my friend & hostest with the mostest, Kim of KPFusion who invited us all out, Quaneshia of According to Q, Carmeon of NubiInteriors and Ariane of Thats So Chic were all yearning for a morning of beauty, pampering, and just girl time. We were given the opportunity to each get an exclusive session from different counters such as Chanel, Kiehl’s, Lancome, Dior, and The Edge Shop. I chose Dior through a fun little raffle.
Let me tell you how excited I was for this makeup experience! I don’t wear a lot of makeup—not because I am one of those “I don’t wear makeup” kind of people. It’s really a couple of things. One, I have fallen off of what’s trendy in makeup. Secondly, I have eczema and it’s really hard for me to try new products or makeup lines because I am afraid it will have such an adverse reaction with me skin. However, I’m in my late 30s and badly in need of finding a new skincare regimen as well as finding beauty products that enhance. I have heard so many great things about Dior skin products. So a girl had to partake in such an amazing time.
My beauty session was in two parts—skincare regimen and makeup application. My treatment specialist immediately upon sitting what was important to me. I thought that was so great. I told her I wanted to place an emphasis on informing me of the skincare products. I have always felt it is better to start with great skin and enhance than to have bomb makeup application with horrible skin. So, we went right into the glorious skincare regimen.
+ Delaine used the Instant Eye Makeup Remover followed by the Micellar No Rinse Cleanser.
She then sold me by detoxifying my skin with the Detoxifying Booster Serum and Capture Youth Serum. You guys, I really was sold after she applied these two products. My skin had an instant glow. I mean instant. I felt so hydrated and rejuvenated. It was unbelievable.
The next step was a more tailored personal beauty ritual after discovering what I would call a flaw. Delain asked me what is one thing I don’t currently have in my regimen or a flaw in my skin that I would like to improve. Honey, these dark circles. She treated one eye first with the Glow Buster Eye Serum. Two minutes later, there was a noticeable lighting of my under eye circles.
I really could have left the counter with no makeup and would have felt like a glowing supermodel. My skin felt so fresh, clean, restored, and illuminating.
Remember, I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I always love a fresh natural day look. I asked her to give me a radiant day look with a focus on my eyes. I think I have pretty eyes and love playing with shiny brown pigments matched with rose eyeshadow.
To begin, she prepped my skin with Capture Totale Dreamskin which has instant correction benefits, boosts radiance and has a blurring effect. PERFECT! My skin was primed with Airflash and then Delane used the Airflash Foundation in 501. I always need a heavier concealer application for these genetic under eye craters, so we used Undercover 50 The makeup was fun yet simple and light.
For the eyes, Exalt 777 in the 5 Colours Palette & Dior Fusion 681, eyeliner was matte black, Browstyler 004 to fill in the brows. I finally was able to try the Pump n Volume Mascara that I’ve heard rave reviews about. LOVED IT! Lastly, the lips, we used a gloss shade 629. Here’s the look, I really enjoyed Delain’s thorough and customized beauty session. I am so glad that she was receptive of my dire need to develop a new skincare regimen using Dior products. I loved my makeup so much that I wore out for lunch with my husband.
I had so much fun with my blogger babes and can’t thank Kim and DIllard’s enough for inviting me out. I really needed this day!
