Hello beautiful people, yesterday was the launch of the new makeup line of Dior Makeup : Dior Backstage. I was invited with some other influencers to discover their new makeup and spend a lovely time during the cocktail. Here are my thoughts on the makeup and event.
Getting ready with me
Yesterday was a busy day as I had a shoot in the morning then had to rush doing some shopping. I got home, ate something and had a long nap. I am exhausted these days and nap time has become a must.I Waking up I knew that I had nothing new to wear except some simple polo shirts. I decided to customize a white one some colorful buttons. Sewing these on and listening to some piano and violin music was something very soothing.
When I was done, I only had 30 minutes to shower, shave and do my makeup. I knew at that point that I was going to be late but still I felt that I’d rather feel pretty and comfy instead of being on time. Sorryyyy.
I reached Mado Bagatelle 30 minutes late and the presentation had already been done. Anyway I was welcome with a huge smile and did I ever mention that it’s my fav Mado shop? The girls there are always welcoming and friendly. Love them. I got to catch up with Delphine, Laetitia and Angie, some very well-known models and bloggers of the island, who were also invited to the event. The cocktail was YUMMY! Jaw dropping! Beautiful and again YUMMY appetizers provided by the Hennessy Park Hotel.
Dior Backstage, the makeup line
While the clients started getting pampered by the Christian Dior Makeup Artists, I asked if I could try the makeup on the beautiful Delphine and they said yes. We tried a full look while the place was getting even more busy and busy. It was a challenge but we made it through and here are my thoughts on the products.
First it’s very sheer and liquidy, the kind of foundation that looks like BB Cream before you apply it but it’s not when apply it to the face. At first I looks and feels much like the Air Nude Foundation by Dior, very natural and skin like, but it’s very matte on the face and looks like you’ve already applied powder to it. Girls with oily skin will love it, girls with dry skin, not sure about it. Buildable and matte for someone with a combination skin like mine = LOVE!
The last product I am going to talk about is the Glow Face Palette! I LOOOOOVE IT! WOW! You get a bronzer for the contour, a pink blush and 2 highlights. I love the 4 shades! Also I like to contour with matte bronzer I used the shimmery brown for the contour of the cheeks and it still looked amazing. That’s something I want to have in my makeup it. And ooooh that pink with a hint of violet in it as a blush it so pretty! A dream palette!
Ok guys I have to cut it short, I need to start getting ready for another event tonight and this time, I don’t want to be late.
Kisses and it’s always a pleasure to write here.
