Sheer lipsticks are must-haves especially on
days you want to rock a simple, easy-to-put-
together look. If you are going easy on the eyes
and lips, make sure to have strong, bold brows
which can definitely frame your face.

I am a strong believer in quality over quantity when it comes to makeup. While I don’t discredit the wonders of certain drugstore brands, there are some prestige products that are worth every penny.
The House of Dior was founded in 1947 in Avenue Montaigne, Paris. At the time, the brand carried only revolutionary fashion pieces and perfumes (one of which is the still famous Miss Dior, which refers to the designer’s sister Catherine). It wasn’t until 1969 when the first exclusive line of Christian Dior Cosmetics was launched.
The brand recently opened its own boutique in the beauty department of SM Store Makati.
Remember to use good-quality foundation as your base. Diorskin Forever Liquid Foundation gives me such a nice, full coverage without looking cakey.
Full-coverage foundations are a great way to get the most out of your money because a little goes a long way. True to its name, it takes care of everything, you don’t even need a concealer. This helps your skin breathe because if a long-wear, full-coverage foundation can conceal most of the imperfections of your skin in one layer, that definitely will make you look your most natural.
Even if you are blessed with nicely shaped brows that need minimal filling in and shaping, make sure the products you use are blended well, with a good-quality spoolie that won’t tug at your skin.
I used Diorshow Brow Styler, a twist-up pencil that distributes the product evenly depending on how hard you press it. This makes the application faster—perfect for when I’m in a rush—because it has a spoolie, which helps me diffuse the product, making it look softer and more natural.
Can you imagine a perfect palette with enough versatile shades to help you achieve your desired eye looks?
Dior Eye Reviver is the bomb dot com. With a primer, four shadows and a liner, this eye shadow set is travel-friendly and the ultimate beauty arsenal. Use its neutral shades for every day, and its rich, dark brown shade to give you a sultry, smoky eye.
Of course, even the most expertly applied smoky eye is not complete without mascara. Luscious lashes can be achieved only if you choose mascara with a great formula and brush/applicator.
Diorshow Designer Mascara has a unique brush that tapers off. This is very useful because it can get into the teeniest, tiniest lashes. Meanwhile, the wider part of the tip can really perk up the curls of your lashes.
Want to make your puckers look plumper without fillers?
Focus on the finish of your lips. Matte lipsticks may be the trend, but they also make your lips look flat and dull. I still think that a slight sheen on your lips can make you look just as natural and sophisticated. And it also makes your lips look luscious.
Try Dior Addict Tie Dye, which not only moisturizes your lips but also gives them a beautiful two-tone effect. If your lips are naturally pigmented, keep them hydrated and protected by incorporating an SPF10-boosted lip balm like Dior Addict Lip Glow.
