A Healthy Suntanned Look


As you know, I am travelling like crazy at the moment and I have barely time for myself. Nevertheless, I like to look fresh and radiant. Dior has some new launches this summer that work their magic, providing you with a sun-kissed glow as if you spent your weekend at the pool.

Diorskin Nude Tan Prime And Bronze 002 Peaux Mates_1

DIORSKIN Nude Tan Prime & Bronze – CHF 59.00

Dior’s first primer especially for summer enhances your complexion with a light tan to create the illusion of a natural healthy glow. After one week of application, its progressive self-tanning effect gives you a natural-looking tan. The texture is light and fresh and subtly tinted. I couldn’t live without this product at the moment…

Diorskin Nude Tan Powder Matte

DIORSKIN Nude Tan Matte Powder – CHF 72.00

This extra-matt non-pearlised bronzing powder enhances your skin’s original colour without iridescence for an imperceptible glow. Its extra-matte texture blends perfectly with the skin, leaving only a subtle, velvety veil. Available in two shades, pink or gold, the powder is suitable for any complexion and levels of tan.

Available in 002 Matte Amber and 003 Matte Cinnamon


DIORSKIN Nude Shimmer Powder – CHF 79.50

This shimmer bronzing powder mimics a fresh glow. With its kabuki brush, it sculpts and contours, creating a dazzling, complexion-enhancing radiance.

Available in 4 different shades.


All products are in store now. While you are reading this, I am on my way to Paris with Dior to shoot their new mascara launch, so please stay tuned for some fun pics!

A Supernatural and Vibrant Summer

Beauty Supernatural

One of the biggest make-up trends for summer is a supernatural look with the emphasis on the lips. A radiant skin with glowing cheeks is important. The lips are coloured with see-through lipsticks and glosses in sorbet-coloured hues. Vibrant and colourful are the nails in eye-popping shades like blue and green. Nail lacquer has really become a fashion statement like a must-have accessory.

Here is all you need for a supernatural look for summer that is easy and fast to achieve, that will make you look much younger and that works perfect on hot days. If you like, you can add a touch of mascara. Please find herewith my favourite products for this season.
