The Winner Is…

I recently announced the winner of the latest giveaway… Erykah C. Here’s the prize:

I sent an email… to respond with a mailing address so I can ship out the palette.

If I don’t have a response by tonight (which will be 48 hours from the original annuoncement), I’ll pick another winner.

FOTD: Garden Edition (2)

I went back into the Dior ‘Garden Edition’ quint for this FOTD. I used the green and pink colors, then brought them together with a bit of deep brown.

*When working on medium to dark skin tones, the best way to bring ‘brighter’ or ‘pastel’ colors together is with a neutral deeper tone, like brown, or dark grey*

Chanel Blush in Imprevu
Guerlain Sun In The City Illuminating Powder (highlight)
Dior ‘Garden Edition’ Eyeshadow Quint:

Pink Eye Shadow (above crease)

Eye Adore: Dior 5-Colors Garden Edition

This is just beyond stunning. I saw promotional pictures of this quint about two months ago, and instantly fell in love…

Here, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking:

Isn’t it just BEYOND? I love looking at it… just stunning. The shadows are silky and highly pigmented, but they have a VERY high shimmer factor, which means flashback if you use a flash on the camera. I had to cut out the lights to get the color to show up (my camera pictures without flash are pretty much garbage). The colors are actually deeper than my swatches in real life.

This is truly beautiful. Certainly worth paying one forward in a giveaway. Details coming. Ciao for now!
