Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Makeup Collection Review + Nude Air Foundation Demo

I have recently fallen in love with Dior again. When Peter Phillips took his new post, many wondered whether he could recreate the magical work he had accomplished at Chanel. The Tie Dye collection shows a more playful take on make up that still feels haute couture, and that explains the rekindling of my love for Dior. In the video below, I will share my thoughts on the products I purchased. The collection as a whole is easy to wear. The textures are effortless to apply, and the shades coordinate well together in their respective pink and coral themes. Most of the shades are basics but redesigned and reimagined to make beauty the luxurious and exciting experience possible. The packaging, of course, is always impeccable.
In the tutorial section, I will share my bare face again! My skin is slowly but surely healing from the acne marks seen in my last Get Ready With Me, Morning Edition video. You can see some of the deeper redness and pigmentation through the Dior Nude Air Foundation, which I demonstrated how to apply. I love how it creates an airbrushed finish without the mess. You can pat some more of the foundation alone on areas you require more coverage. For all other Tie Dye makeup collection details, please refer to the video!

Holy Grail | My Must-Have Hair Care + Hair Styling Products

I've waited many years to compile this Holy Grail Hair Care + Styling Products lineup because I was always waiting for the next best thing to sweep me off my feet. Now that my hair has endured so many different types of chemical treatments and colors, I am ready to share what hair care is actually worth the money!
Let me start by telling you that I have a very laid-back approach to my hair. When I buy expensive hair care, I expect it to keep my locks looking as healthy and as vibrant as possible. I stick to these tried but true products because they work. I have used atelier salon brands Kerastase and Shu Uemura the longest — nearly 6 years — all throughout various stages of virgin hair, dyed jet black hair, blonde ombre hair, and red ombre hair. I have loved and recommended every variation of the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo, and I absolutely adore the Kerastase Cristalliste for those with dark dyed or natural, untreated hair! Other noteworthy products from Kerastase are Initialiste (if you suffer from dry scalp) and Reflection Masque Chroma Riche (a hydrating and soothing mask for colored hair).
My latest obsession for hair care has been Moroccanoil due to its more affordable pricing and phenomenal quality, but if you can splurge, I urge you to try Philip B. The White Truffle Conditioning Creme tames my hair in ways that no other conditioners from even Shu Uemura, Kerastase and Moroccanoil can. My hair feels soft yet bouncy and responds better to styling. Luxury hair care brands like Oribe make wonderful products as well. If you'd like to try something more luxurious than the Kiehl's Damage Repair Treatment, definitely look into the Oribe Split End Seal! I am still in the process of testing it, which is why it did not make it into the video below. I will release my final verdict in a few weeks. My sister is a huge fan of Oribe's Gold Lust Hair Oil and the famed Thick Dry Texturizing Spray, so we highly recommend you try them!
Last but not least, I wanted to mention that you will hear me consistently mention fragrance in the video review. I might have a very dull nose, but I love pleasantly scented hair care. It makes me feel confident and radiates a more polished aura. I hope you'll enjoy the review and give some of my favorites a try!

TOP 5 | Holy Grail Sunscreens feat. Eve Lom, First Aid Beauty, Sunday Riley, SkinCeuticals, and MD Solar Sciences (For All Skin Types)

I love sunscreen. I would say I would worship sunscreen if it wasn't sacrilegious. A quality sunscreen is the best defense against sun spots and wrinkles. Since I rely heavily on potent treatments like glycolics, my skin has become more sensitive to sun exposure. I take sunscreen very seriously — more than ever — so that I can prevent damage instead of treating it! Unless I am filming or testing new products, I try not to wear foundation and instead, reapply my sunscreen throughout the day. There's a sunscreen for every skin type here, and all details regarding my updated Holy Grail line up can be found after the jump!
