Dior Makeover at The Bay


A lovely friend of mine, Justyna, recently asked if I have time for a Dior Makeover at The Bay in Rideau Mall. It was very nice of her. Is there any female who wouldn’t have time for a Dior Makeover? I’d stop whatever I’m doing for a spontaneous Dior makeover, even during saving a puppy from a burning building or conceiving my first born child.





Jamie-Lee, the counter manager for Dior was extremely nice and knowledgeable. During the makeover, Jamie-Lee gave me a few tips on skin care:

- Try not to cleanse your face more than twice per day, excess cleansing can damage your pores and cause your skin to produce more oil (as it thinks it is dry) causing you to have normal skin to oily/combination skin.

- Try to use a water based cleaner for your face as it is less abrasive, going back to the point above.


And here is the final product of Jamie-Lee’s smokey eye look.







Here are the Dior products Jamie-Lee used on my face:



Concealer: Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen
Bronzer: Dior Bronze Sun Powder Spray.
Foundation: Dior Skin Nude 022.
Eyeshadow: Dior 5 Color designer all-in-one Artistry Palette in Smoky
Lips: Dior Lip Maximizer


If I was going to purchase any Dior cosmetics, I would buy the foundation and Lip Maximizer. Unlike any other foundation I’ve used, I had it on for 5 hours and never felt oily or sticky. The lip Maximizer is hydrating and taste AMAZING. If you like peppermint, do try out the Lip Maximizer, you will be impressed.


And if you live in Ottawa, make sure to check out The Cosmetics Gala at The Bay this Thursday night (Sept 16th) in Rideau Mall. It will be $10 for the ticket: $2 go to the foundation of Look Good Feel Better Fund in benifit of women living with Cancer, and $8 go towards any purchse of cosmetics you buy that night. Not only it will be for a great cause, there will be plenty of incentives (ie freebies) when you buy stuff so it's a great time to stock up on your makeup and skin care products.

I will also be helping to host the Dior part of the show at 6pm, so drop by and say hi!

  2. Gorgeous! Ah, so lucky! I would LOVE to get a Dior makeover!
    Good tips about face cleansing. It's important for girls not to over-cleanse their face, or used harsh products that strip oils...very bad news.

  15. Ooo I love the smokey eye makeover that Dior makeup artist did. You look gorgeous!
    I bought the DiorSkin foundation and it was good - but considering the price, I'm going to be trying the Estee Lauder Double Matte foundation which I have heard loads of good things about.
    OMG yeah! I remember you said you're coming to Toronto in October! I'd love to meet you and hang out, smoke seesha, get buzzed, go clubbing hehe ;) I'll be away in Malaysia over Thanksgiving weekend but I will be flying back into Toronto on evening of October 25th. Will you still be in Toronto on the 26th or that week?

  28. Beautiful!! You make over is really pretty. I love how the smokey eye isn't too crazy. Definitely a look you could wear for a day date.

    When I first read the title of this post I got all excited when I saw 'The Bay'. I was thinking The Bay Area of Northern California, San Francisco, San Jose, etc. But I soon realized I was wrong. {*LoL}

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lucky girl, getting a makeover and not just any makeover, a Dior one. I remember I had a Max Factor's makeover once and the make-up artist chose the same smokey eye look. I don't know about you, but I wasn't planning on taking that make-up down ever :)) I even slept with the make-up on and skipped the shower before bed just so I could save it for a couple more hours :)) Felt really glamorous, bet you did too. Your skin is glowing, really fantastic foundation.

  72. I did some research to find out if there is a term in the art world for painting a masterpiece over top of a masterpiece. I couldn't find anything. So from now on, I'll just think of it as a "pop". You look lovely.
