Transform your tired, dull, dehydrated complexion into hydrated, radiant and glowing skin
We all suffer from those days where we are over-worked, under exercised and pumped full of junk food. Needless to say all these things play havoc on our skin. In this video I will show you how to instantly vamp up your dull skin and turn it into a Glowing complexion, in just 5min. This look is also a great everyday natural make-up look. The key to this transformation is to use products that promote hydration and radiance. See the vital products to achieving this look listed and reviewed below the video.
An anti-fatigue remedy designed to energize and re-vitalize skin.
Designed with Photo-smart Pigments that attract light and optimally diffuse it over the complexion leaving your skin looking revitalized. The brush applicator is easy to use and helps it blend well into the skin. I preferred using the brush to blot it onto my face and my fingers for the blending. I found that my skin immediately felt energized and conditioned. In the Video below this post you can see how my skin went a bit red. It felt like the blood flow was being stimulated. This primer instantly made my tired skin feel fresh and look radiant. It left me with a smoother skin surface, perfectly prepped for foundation application.
Available in one shade suited for light to med-dark skin-tones.
Retail price: R460
DIOR- Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF20
An ultra-hydrating tinted moisturizer that gives a luminous “healthy glow” effect and SPF protection.
A lightweight, tinted moisturizer that perfectly combines the intense hydration properties of a moisturizer with the natural cover of a good foundation. The SPF UVA and UVB filters offers the skin a defense barrier against environmental stress. It does not contain Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Synthetic Dyes, Petro-Chemicals, GMO’s and Triclosan..All the things we really don’t want to rubbing onto our skin.
It is a wonderful everyday tinted moisturizer and worth the splurge. It provides more cover than a tinted moisturizer, but less than a foundation. As you can see in the video it perfectly evened-out my skin, gave me a beautiful radiant finish and it is super hydrating! Perfect for mature, dry and combination skin.
Apply with hands or foundation brush.
Retail price: R735
Available in 3 shades: 001 Natural | 002 Golden | 003 Tanned
Also available, a Beauty Awakening Rehydrating Mask, which I have not tried yet
DIOR-Diorskin Nude Concealer
Skin-perfecting hydrating concealer
Love love love this concealer! It is the perfect everyday concealer that gives just enough cover. It goes on in a thin layer, blends flawlessly into the skin and did not crease on me. It left my under-eye area looking less tired and feeling hydrated.
Apply Concealer after fluid or cream foundations and before powder foundations. I used a brush as I find this gives me a even cover.
Available in 4 shades: 001 Ivory | 002 Beige | 003 Sand | 004 Honey (The website says Honey, the one I have is 004 Mocha and beautiful on dark skin)
Retail price: R400
DIOR-Diorshow Extase Mascara
Dior Innovation: a revolutionary formula with spectacular plumping volume that glides over the lashes to coat them one by one.
As you can see in the video below, this mascara perfectly separated my lashes and made them appear longer. I am always all about the brush when it comes to mascara, yes the formula is also important, but the right brush will ultimately give you the finish you desire. This brush with its exclusive couture design combines two types of fibers to coat and comb the lashes. The gaps you see in the brush means that it will give you separated lashes as your lashes will slide between those gaps. I like that it is a “fat” brush and not too big, this makes it a perfect to fit in underneath the lashes and coat them perfectly. Click here for more on mascara brushes
This mascara went on smooth, even after the third coat, and lasted a whole day without crumbling or smudging.
It comes in 3 shades 090 Black | 791 Brown Extase | 871 Plum Extase
Retail Price: R440
