My Look: Creative Vibes

Today some creative vibes from my side. The toughest part of my outfit posts is getting the photos done. My daughter used to do them for me, but since she moved to Boston, I lost my photographer. Being dependent on others is something I hate. Therefore I decided I will start taking them myself, and here is my first try. It is quite time-consuming, putting on the timer, running into position and hoping for the best. However, I think you still get a good impression of today’s look. Light blue and nude blend in perfectly with the landscaping in Gstaad and Valentino’s new Roman Studs are just beautiful. Wouldn’t you agree?

My look: Crystal-embellished belted wool and silk-blend crepe mini dress, and Roman Stud quilted leather shoulder bag, both by Valentino, Iriza 100 patent-leather pumpsicon by Christian Louboutin, and Rosamund silk-faille headband by Jennifer Behr.

Dior – The Art of Nude

Dior Nude Makeup

I have loved Dior’s Nude makeup from its first introduction in 2009. Therefore, I was completely excited to explore this year’s “New Nude”, that is a brilliant step in makeup for a glowing and blushing complexion. Personally speaking, I couldn’t live without it!

Nude Dior Mood

The skin, like the dresses in the latest fashion collection, flushes with colour, brighter and more luminous than ever. Dior’s backstage expertise has given rise to the new range of Diorskin Nude foundation, which takes the skin’s natural glow to new heights.

Nude Dior-1

Dior’s “New Nude”: a new signature foundation.

The star product in the Diorskin Nude range, this cult fluid is the essential item on every backstage makeup artist’s table, and is their secret for creating the enhanced nude look envied by all. In 2012, this light fluid acquires a new subtle velvet finish that blends into the skin, to deliver just the right amount of coverage without masking the skin’s texture. This creates a shine-free, natural glow with an idealised bare skin effect. Women who dream of perfect skin texture and a radiant complexion need look no further: this is the must-have product.

Nude Compact : the most natural compact powder.

Unique, new and surprising, this compact foundation tops them all. It is the first versatile compact powder to provide coverage that can be adjusted with utmost precision while maintaining the skin’s natural satin sheen, to guarantee a true nude result. Depending on the desired finish, it acts as a foundation or a powder.

The Nude Compact can be applied using either of the double-sided applicators, sponge or brush.
