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!
