Here are her pro picks for switching up your shades this month!
Like Dior 5-Couleurs in Cuir Cannage?
Try Dior 5-Couleurs in Trafalgar 876!
The Cuir Cannage palette has wonderful warm & rich tones that are practical for almost all skin tones while allowing you to create an eye look that goes from natural to dramatic. If you love the colours in Cuir Cannage, I suggest you try Trafalgar 876. It allows you to play with warm and rich tones like gold and saffron but with a modern and creative twist.
Like Diorshow Mono in 994 Power?
Try Diorshow Mono in 296 Techno!
Power is a fresh, playful and stunning purple eyeshadow that will make your eye colour pop! I’ll sometimes play with texture and use Fusion Mono Hypnotique 881, a mousse texture that has more depth and richness. But for a new look, I recommend you consider Diorshow Mono in 026 Techno. It’s also a fresh and playful colour that makes any eye colour pop! This is the colour for you if you want to make your eyes really shine!
Like Rouge Dior in 080 Red Smile?
Try Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in 656 Cosmic!
Red Smile is a vibrant and energizing red lipstick that brings in a feminine touch. I use it often. I find that Rouge Dior 999 Matte is a warmer, true tone of red with a matte finish that gives an elegant luxurious finish to the look. If you want to continue to create a vibrant and energized lip, try using Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in 656 Cosmic, an orange shot with fuchsia. It creates a wonderful iridescent effect on lips that pairs with any make up and clothing style.
Like Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 289 Versatile?
Try Lip Maximizer Beige Sunrise 006!
The watery texture of Fluid Stick creates gorgeous volume while the shade adds a pretty rose softness to your lips. I suggest we continue to play up the volume effect with Lip Maximizer Beige Sunrise 006. This neutral shade adds a more contemporary version of pretty softness to your lips! Plus it provides immediate and long term plumping to the lips. The result is softer, smoother lips!
Like Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in 996 Diorsphere?
Try Rouge Dior 787 Exuberant Matte
I describe Diosphere as a deep yet luminous shade with attitude! If you love this shade as I do, continue to play with the same mood by wearing this bold matte lip in Rouge Dior 787 Exuberant Matte – a more vivacious take on Diorsphere. Thanks to the blue-based shade you will find your teeth will look whiter!
Like Diorshow Mascara in Pro Black?
Try Diorshow Mascara in Waterproof Blue!
I find that many of my clients want to maintain the dramatic effect of plumping, boosting and thickening they get from Diorshow Mascara. There is such a cult following for this formula. So I like to recommend they try Diorshow Mascara in Waterproof Blue. You maintain the dramatic effect on your lashes while adding a touch of attitude with the blue. It also pairs well on top of Diorshow Pro Black if you want to ease yourself in to the attitude of this mascara! Blue mascara is a great accent on any eye colour.
