As such, I'm in uncharted waters, so I will be reporting on products that will help me fake the "natural base" phase too. Sabrina from The Beauty Look Book reported on Dior's new summer eyeshadows recently. Her fave was the gorgeous Rosy Nude 5 Colour combination and I immediately knew I would have to eyeball them in person.
Yes. but I was quickly side tracked by their two summer offerings from the Diorskin Nude Glow (foundation) collection, one in Rosy Nude and the other in Honey Nude. Be still my heart.
This is how it is described:
Healthy Glow Summer Fluid ($46)
Diorskin Nude Glow invents a new vision of summer makeup: a dazzling nude skin effect that reveals new sex appeal. This beautiful skin routine for summer features three products in two steps: Step 1: the Enhancer and its radiance effect or the Fluid for a sun-kissed complexion. Step 2: the Powder to capture the light and sculpt the face.
This is how it is achieved:
By combining amber prism pigments and Mineralized Water Diorskin Nude Glow products recreate 3 factors of an ideal summer complexion to embellish all skin tones:
Healthy glow- the prisms- a combination of pearly and mineral pigments warm the skin tone
Radiance- they softly diffuse color and light to reproduce natural dazzling skin. A liquid to powder fluid melts onto the skin and transforms the powder to a soft finish that lasts comfortably all day long
"Like a sunny caress, the Healthy glow summer fluid recreates the dazzling illusion of a complexion bathed in the first rays of sunlight for a soft golden".
They ain't kidding!!! This stuff is fantastic!!! I have never tried anything that has this consistency. It is extremely sheer, but still provides some coverage. It imparts a wash of color, (I chose 001, top left,) without appearing like a foundation that is 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone. The powder finish manages to be matte and glowing at the same time. I didn't feel any need to add bronzing powder to darken the effect, just a pop of blush on the apple of my cheeks.
My advice??? Skip the sun damage...even the base tan. Healthy Glow Summer Fluid has got me covered and hopefully, you too. Genius.
