If you saw the last post, I promised to talk about some of my must have Dior products and give you studio tested tips and tricks to make the most out of your Dior AIRFLASH.

I hope everyone is having a fun and safe weekend! Remember work hard and play hard but always make sure your doing it safely! So – I’m going to just give you a little bit of information on Dior as a company ➡️ Christian Dior, commonly known as Dior, is a French luxury goods company controlled and chaired by French businessman Bernard Arnault, who also heads LVMH – the world’s largest luxury group.

DIORAIRFLASH003

Personally, Dior AIRFLASH is absolutely one of my favourite makeup products, there is so much that you can do with it, and so much that people are not aware it can be used for but like all makeup – its really limitless which is one of the cool things about makeup and with the introduction of the AIRFLASH CC (color correcting) spray and the AIRFLASH matte, they can really be all you need for your base – especially for men, it’s almost undetectable to the eye.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ sadly as I am writing this I believe that the AIRFLASH matte has been discontinued – or at least not available on Dior beauty website – maybe you can find one in stores I cannot speak for all of the distributors of Dior beauty.

DIORAIRFLASH002
There is eleven (11) shades of Dior AIRFLASH. Dior AIRFLASH CC primer and Dior AIRFLASH matte touch come in one (1) universal shade – as a lot of the backstage pro products come in universal shades to work within all shade ranges.
➡️ the suggested retail price is $80.00

Thanks to a unique diffusion technology, and extraordinary fine texture, within a few seconds of applying your AIRFLASH your complexion has a soft focus radiance and a airbrushed finish that lasts all day.
With precision and ease you can create a flawless base, instantly evens out your skin tone and blurs the look of fine lines and imperfections on the face.

➡️ the coverage can be taken from light to full and completely adjustable to your desire. You can take a look at AIRFLASH and other products by clicking here to be taken to the official Dior website!

TIPS and TRICKS ➡️ You can use AIRFLASH for base, concealing, contour and highlighting it would be your one stop shop for the most beautiful makeup application.
When applying to your face, fold some tissues around your shirt so that you don’t make a mess and apply it to your clothes while getting your neck.
– Mix with your favourite body lotion to even out your skin tone and help hide tan lines.
– Add to legs for beautiful warmth and to hide unwanted imperfections.
– To the beach and back! choose either shade 500 or 600 – spray to the center of the face and blend out and instantly you will have a sun kissed beach look!
– Spray it right onto your brush, and start blending onto the skin!

DID YOU KNOW ➡️
you can use Dior AIRFLASH to even cover a full color tattoo! yes, I have tattoos, yes this was tested and surprisingly powdering in between and to set, your tattoo is gone!

Ahh the partnership I’ve wanted since I started MAKEUPANDTHECITY I got, but at this point I’ve got to choose and I’ve got nothing to loose. Heres the 411 – LVMH is extremely hard to work with, and hard to get on any level if PR or support because they are the top or the top when it comes to luxury makeup! If you didn’t know LVMH stands for Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE, better known as LVMH, is a French multinational luxury goods conglomerate, native of France and headquartered in Paris – I’ve learned that a large reason why they don’t send out PR or work with bloggers or influencers is mainly because when we manager to find a correct email for who we want to talk to, either in the US or CANADA there is no warehouse to pull items from they have to place orders months in advance because it all comes from Paris.

I actually gave up on working for LVMH until it happen to me on accident really, I connected with a wonderful woman on LinkedIn and we talked on there, which lead to e-mails, and other social platforms and what does she do? PR for LVMH and DIOR I was amazing, she didn’t have to send me what she did or continue to support me for the credit and set exposure but she’s such an amazing person inside and out –  she hooked me up and actually has become a friend; so there was my foot in the door to the world of LVMH and affiliated brands. I can’t say enough nice things about LVMH now that I really understand how they work and why it’s an ‘exclusive‘ club that you need a key to get into.

I had probably again one of the worst nights of my life, so when I finally come home I was not expecting what was in the box – I know she was going to be sending me some things but not like this, I was like damn is this the shelf at Sephora poured beautifully into a box?

It was the perfect illusion I desperately needed at that time.

➡️ I will say, lately with my life being so up and down, and being here, then there, and just throwing myself into my work maybe and not daring to allow myself to come up for air, I’m just trying to distract myself from the bigger picture, but still I stand here waiting for you.

DIORSKIN FOREVER UNDERCOVER / chances, choices, consequences

“For in that solemn silence is heard in the whisper of every sleeping thing :
Look, look at me, Come wake me up for still here I’ll be.”

hi makeupandthecity,

How well do we really think we know someone? It’s really sad for me to think about this because you can get to know someone so well and they are just so perfect, you talk, bond, trust – but how much do we hold back because we have already labeled it unlovable. I personally think this is completely unfair because, you don’t get to tell me what I can or can’t handle – I understand doing something in your past that you wouldn’t want to talk about but I’ve learned in my time here that, trying to not hurt someone by choosing to not tell me something about you, when it come up in a completely ‘normal’ pretext inevitably ended up hurting me more.

As human beings we get to make choices, think, and react and that’s one of the main things that makes us considered evolved – and ill use the term evolved loosely because I think now more then ever we need to take a step back and just look, look at the bigger picture, I suppose. Being truly in love with someone is the best feeling in the world wouldn’t you say? we all carry baggage with us from everything we do in life and that is just a given. I guess I just want to tell you guys that, we all have monsters in our past so before we act and react, let’s flip it back and remember that we have no control over the past because it is, the past – we can control the future.

I make mistakes a lot, hell I made a mistake tonight by choosing too think that maybe you are better off with someone else, I am not perfect and when I don’t understand something I take myself and my feelings out of it completely and start to look at it from a logical point of view, but I just couldn’t find reason or give a justification. I will love every part of you, from the top to the bottom, I will love your insecurities and love the things that you think to yourself no one could ever love me for this. I know you and you know me, there is a bond and so much strength and love there but sometimes, especially for me, you have to stop, breath and take a step back and take three steps forward.

DIORSKIN FOREVER UNDERCOVER is one of those so amazing products that comes out without really a plan or anything I’m sure there was some talk about this but I hadn’t heard much about it – I think it popped up once or twice but I wasn’t too impressed or even bothered to read it because I really did not like DIOR STAR CONCERALER but I do love the DIORSKIN FOREVER foundation. I did read that it is one of a new line of products for DIOR BEAUTY FALL 2017 launch.

I swear this packaging is just so extra, its in a long, skinny, frosted tube with the classic DIOR embellishments of course and no joke when I say to you that this can do your entire complexion it’s formula is just so incredible.

diorskinpp
Create full camouflage coverage with one coat. With 25% more pigments than the DIORSKIN FOREVER Fluid Foundation, this concealer hides and neutralizes imperfections all day. Its hydrating liquid formula stays comfortable, and won’t crease, crack, or settle into lines and is completely all day waterproof. 

DIORSKIN FOREVER UNDERCOVER concealer has a fresh matte finish and delivers full cover, crease-proof concealing in one swipe.
I am really, really trying to think of something to compare this concealer to but I keep shooting blanks here. It’s just so fresh and new – I mean come on we can only take the packaging so far but the DIOR went and frosted the component.

➡️ I know it’s a concealer and this is where I see the issue with most people, for what would seem like not a lot of product for close to $50.00 if you’re in Canada and close to $40.00 in the US.

Available in ten (10) full coverage shades.
Ivory – Very Light : Neutral Undertone
Cream – Very Light : Neutral Undertone
Light Beige – Light : Neutral Undertone
Linen – Light: warm yellow undertone
Cameo – Light : Cool Pink Undertone
Medium Beige – Light to medium : neutral undertone
Sand – Light to medium : warm yellow undertone
Honey Beige – Medium : neutral undertone
Dark Beige – Medium to Deep : Neutral undertone
Light Mocha – Deep : Neutral Undertone

REAL OR DUPE PRODUCT ➡️ DIOR AIRFLASH OR SEPHORA PERFECTION MIST AIRBRUSH FOUNDATION 

So lately I’ve been slowly making New York City my new home, and moving isn’t fun for anyone but I have made so many cool new friends, directors, photographers real New York (and LA) ARTist – so much inspiration and so much love.

(This is the New York visual artist who put together LADY GAGA famous Grammys performance for David Bowie) 

There is so much I have to say, and so many ways I’d like to express myself and so many people to say thank you too.

I’m also going to take this time since I’m talking about Sephora some might have heard about the drama between me and Sephora – and no this is not every Sephora. I do have a massive problem with Sephora and the employees and how they act – you wait and see when the smoke clears. I’ll go more into details about it. Love love love LVMH – love all of the brands that Sephora carries, just please don’t put words in my mouth. 

Moving on ➡️

DIOR AIRFLASH FOUNDATION you will always find near me – it’s absolutely perfect to add more coverage to any foundation and it mixes so very well with almost every foundation. Plus come on – it looks like skin – it gives just enough coverage for men. 

The revolutionary spray foundation that brings airbrushed perfection to your daily makeup routine. The light, silky formula is delivered in an innovative misting spray that starts as a liquid, then dries to a powder for an incredibly even and flawless finish. 

DIOR AIRFLASH

The ultra-fine diffusion technology is what gives the formula its extraordinarily fine quality, and allows for the easily buildable coverage it will take you from medium to full. The result is instant: a super-smooth, silken complexion that is radiant and glowing. 
Once sprayed on, AirFlash dries, well, in a flash – so blending must be quick. This blends evenly and sets to a long-wearing, silky glowing powder finish. If you haven’t tried Dior AIRFLASH then I really really recommend you give it a try, even if you use it to add a little more coverage or by itself you will not be disappointed in the product. 

 The shades are excellent also, with options for fair to medium skin. It’s almost perfect for all skin types but especially for oily skin.  Dior AIRFLASH is infused with oils that evaporate as soon as they touch the skin, leaving only perfectly dispersed super-fine pigments. Your skin will looks poreless and flawless, as if airbrushed. This is state-of-the-art complexion perfection.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ Amazing as AIRFLASH is nothing is perfect and it can get a little messy sadly, on clothes, hairline. It’s also easy to use to much of this product and not know and after one use you’ve used up the bottle. 

Especially AIRFLASH MATTE which comes in one shade that is like a spray matte bronzer and is a total summer must have – but sadly I think this product  has been discontinued and they are just selling through stock so get it while you can. Stock up if you love it. 

PRICE ➡️ $80.00 for 2.3 oz

SEPHORA PERFECTION MIST AIRBRUSH FOUNDATION was brought to the market after Dior AIRFLASH of course – and it does kinda perform the same way but the Sephora “version” is 20x more messy – it’s actually unreal. 
Blur imperfections seamlessly and control shine for up to 10 hours with this satin-finish foundation. The weightless, micro-fine pigments of InstaBlend technology ensure color lays down smooth and seamless, so you can build to your desired coverage level from light to full – for a flawless look every time. Mineral-rich red algae extract protects the skin from environmental stresses and helps smooth the skin for a soft-focus, airbrushed finish that lasts. 

It’s possible to spray this product onto a brush and then apply, but it’s hardly worth the bother when there are other less-gimmicky foundations that can get the job done better (and faster)

If you’re willing to put up with the messy, prep-required application process, this long-wearing foundation’s positives are that it blends well and offers medium to full coverage. 

Just like Dior it’s only light to medium with the shade choices sadly. I think it’s harder to mix the darker pigments with the aerosol formula. 

PRICE ➡️ $35.00 for 2.5 oz

So there is a big difference between DIOR and SEPHORA but there is also a huge difference in quality from application, look, packaging and the way it looks on the skin. They both won’t clog your pores, are not tested on animals, are made without parabens. 

Dior just has the spray head that you’d be looking for with this type of product it doesn’t really make that much of a mess but I will admit you do have to apply it in your own way – it’s not the easiest product to use but the look of the skin when applied is flawless. 


Give them a try and decide for yourself
