Flawless Complexion

Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup

A flawless complexion starts with a customized skincare routine, then sheer to medium coverage foundation to even tone and clarity, and a moisturizing concealer to perfect and blend.   Use contour powder or cream, one shade darker under the cheekbone, and an illuminizer for glow on the high points of the face — above the brow, on the bridge of the nose, and on top of the cheekbones.

Smoky Eyes

Dior 5 Colour Designer Eye and Palette

Blues and greens are big for smoky eyes this Fall, as well as the more traditional brown and gray.  Smoky eyes are best paired with neutral lips — think soft pinks and warm corals.

Cheeks That Pop

Dior Blush

Create beautiful bright cheeks this Fall.  Concentrate on the apples of the cheek and blend toward the temples.

Dramatic Eyeliner

Dior Diorliner

Whether it’s pencil, cream, powder gel, or liquid, dramatic liner is back this Fall.  Line eyes, top and bottom, with an exaggerated edge, or try a retro cat eye by extending your liner past your natural lash line.

Statement Lips

Rouge Dior Lipstick

Focus on the lip.  On trend for Fall — reds, bright and frosty candy-coated colors, even deep plums — paired with minimal eyes and cheeks give you a quick and easy Fall look.

Brows Are Back!

Dior ‘Diorshow’ Brow Styler

Natural full brows are in trend this Fall.  Use pencil or powder to achieve a natural fill and a light coating of brow gel or wax for a clean finish.
