DIOR X TESSI

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of going down to Birmingham for a Christmas masterclass at DIOR with the makeup artist and blogger Tessi Artistry. I had an amazing day meeting her and watching her do her thing on her beautiful model.
I was welcomed by the staff at DIOR and they made sure I felt at home and relaxed. As a blogger, this was my first proper event/masterclass that I have ever been too, so I was extremely nervous as I was there on my own, but I soon started to relax.
Tessi created a full makeup look on her model using the new DIOR Christmas range and I’m not just saying this but all the products she used looked amazing on the model’s skin. Having never used any DIOR makeup products before, I was very intrigued and needed to know more, so after Tessi had finished the look she then took us to the makeup where we could try it on ourselves and get matched by the experts. It was an amazing day and you also got given a goody bag with lots of samplers and miniatures of some DIOR products, one thing that I did purchase myself was the backstage foundation as it looked too good to leave behind.

DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION – when I watched Tessi use this foundation, I was amazed by how natural and flawless it looked on the skin. The product is a medium coverage however is easily buildable to create a higher coverage base. The foundation itself is enriched with beauty-enhancing pigments, it is waterproof and can resist extreme conditions such as workout sessions and a humid environment. The foundation comes in 40 shades and retails at £29.00

DIOR SAUVAGE – Sauvage is one of DIOR’S top selling men’s aftershaves as well as being a personal favourite of my own, it makes a perfect present for dads, brothers and boyfriends and the scent stays put all day. The aftershave comes in 60ml and 100ml and retail from £64.00 – £87.00
DIOR J’ADORE – I have never tried J’adore but again it is one of DIOR’S top selling women’s perfumes. Like Sauvage, J’adore would make a lovely present for somebody. The perfume comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml and retail from £54.00 – £110.00
DIOR MISS DIOR – Another one that I haven’t tried but I am so excited for!

The perfume comes in 30ml, 50ml, 100ml and 150ml and retail from £54.00 – £138.00
DIOR CAPTURE YOUTH AGE-DELAY ADVANCED CREME – A face cream infused with Iris Florentina helping to strengthen the skin and fight against the appearance of signs of ageing before they appear. When using this product your skin is said to appear toned, smoothed and reinvigorated. This product is a 50ml tub and retails at £75.00

Also, all signs of ageing are instantly corrected with every application. The crème is a luxury product which delivers comfort for all women. A little on the pricey side but an amazing product, the crème comes in one size – 60ml which retails at £130.00
DIORSKIN FOREVER – I haven’t tried the forever skin foundation, but I am excited to see how it will look and feel on my skin. The foundation itself is available in 28 different shades and gives a luminous matte finish. The foundation retails at £35.00
DIOR ROUGE DIOR – this lipstick is so sexy! It makes women feel so good, the shade 999 which I received is DIOR’S classic bold signature red lip and I can’t wait to create some Christmassy looks. The lipstick retails at £29.50 and is a statement piece for any makeup collection
DIOR LIP MAXIMIZER – giving an instant-volume effect, this gloss gives fuller and plumper lips. You can use the gloss on its own, as a primer or as a finishing touch retailing at £26.00

SNI HYDRATING AND NOURISHING HAIR OIL – this hair oil is natural, organic and is not a coating oil like many other hair oils on the market. It is super absorbent therefore had the ability to travel 3 layers deep of the hair shaft. The oil itself is great for slowing down the loss of hair as well as several other factors and comes in 2 sizes, you can get the full 100ml bottle or they do a travel size 30ml bottle.

It’s that simple

Simple skincare is one of the most affordable skin brands out there, it is a British brand and was designed for those with sensitive skin. I have been using Simple for a few weeks in my night time skin routine and I’ve got to say, I am a fan, the products are so affordable, yet they feel so expensive and luxury on the skin. I would recommend Simple for those of you who are students or those who can’t really afford a higher end brand.

So, I have been using the Simple Kind to Skin Eye Make-Up Remover, Simple Kind to Skin Micellar Cleansing Water, Simple Kind to Skin Moisturising Face Wash and the Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser.

Eye Make-up Remover – pretty much self-explanatory, I like to soak 2 cotton wool pads in the remover then press the pads onto my eyes and brows for about 10 seconds then wipe away.

Micellar Cleansing Water – again I soak about 3 cotton wool pads in the product then wipe away any face and neck makeup.

Moisturising Face Wash – I like to fill a bowl with warm water, and soak my sponge I then apply a little bit of the product to my hand and add a little water to lather the product in my hands before massaging into my neck and face, I then get my sponge and squeeze so all of the excess water is drained and take the face wash of my face then blot dry with tissue or pat dry with a towel.

Hydrating Light Moisturiser – once my face has been dried, I then use a small amount of the moisturiser and again massage into my neck and face and let the product absorb into my skin, you can use as much as you want however I don’t like my face to feel greasy hence why I only use a small amount.

I am yet to try the Simple eye creams, and face masks but If any of you have tried them please let me know what you think, I love reading others skin care routines.
