In preparation for the spring season, I recently attended a @Dior MasterClass @NordysBeachwood. The Master Class focused on the NEW Capture Youth products by @Dior. This beauty powerhouse now offers Expert Targeted Serums and an Age-Delay Advanced Crème.
Great looking skin begins with excellent skin care and these targeted serums definitely work to address any impediments you may have. Before attending the class, I met with my @Dior beauty analyst to discuss the new line and snag a few samples of the serums so I could determine which one(s) were best for me. I went home with the Glow Booster and Redness Soother.
The Glow Booster is amazing for all skin types even if you have no real skin concerns. This product contains a stabilized form of Vitamin C which I love! No need for dark shelves and cool spaces for storage with this formula. It does contain AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids) so you'll need to be diligent above using sun screen when using this. To minimize my risk of sun damage, I apply this goodie before I retire for the evening and follow it up with the Capture Youth Age-Defy Advanced Crème.
I used the Glow Booster the same day I received my @Dior beauty bag and felt results after the first application. There were visible improvements to my complexion after three days. The Redness Soother was equally effective but is not one I need to use as often. There are three other options available
A @Dior Master Class in an opportunity for you to have a complete skincare and beauty treatment in an intimate setting with a @Dior make-up artist. They will walk you through each step of a skin care regimen personalized to your needs (my favorite part). You also receive in-depth details about the products available to you, learn application tips and tricks and you can ask questions you may have along the way. These sessions are not on the sales floor, you are taken to a private room and each table is stocked with every @Dior product you can imagine.
I always look forward to attending a beauty Master Class, this event was extra special for me because I was asked by @Dior make-up artist @jennyloum to serve as the model. I was still able to have my questions answered along the way and I had the added bonus of knowing first hand how to apply my products like an expert.
If you have never attended a @Dior Master Class I would urge you to attend when you need a couple of hours for self care and pampering. The last session scheduled at @NordysBeachwood was approximately two hours and would be great for a day with your girlfriends. The event concluded with each participant creating an unique eye look with a @Dior beauty analyst. Many of us were so pleased with our make-up that we made plans to go out later that evening to show off final looks.

Earlier this month, I was contacted my @Dior beauty analyst about a MasterClass that would feature and be conducted by a promienent international makeup artist. There were only a limited number of spots available, for their top tier clients, to attend this exclusive event so I decided to join in the fun and I was so glad I did!
There were eight other ladies in the @Dior MasterClass with me and we all enjoyed complimentary mimosas, fresh fruits, warm pastries, hot coffee and more upon our arrival. The room was beautifully decorated and the tables were filled with loads of skin care products, Dior beauty applicators and mirrors for each attendee to use during the MasterClass.
Our instructor, Ty (pronounced Twee) came to us from Los Angeles and has worked with celebrities and models that worked the @Dior runway across the globe. She welcomed us to the class and told us she was going to take the next two hours to share with us all of the tips and tricks she's learned in the 12 years she has been with Dior.
For the first hour, we covered skin care topics for each area of our face including our decolletage, while using Dior's Eye Makeup Remover, Cleansing Water, One Essential Detox, the Prestige line and more. Each of us received an skin type analysis, and a written copy of each product we used to create our personal Dior profile. We learned which fingers are best for eye cream application and the direction stars use to reduce eye puffiness.
Color/makeup was the focus of our second hour. We applied lip care, eyelash primer, eyeshadow primer, foundation, and everything else typically use to create a finished look. Ty shared the proper way to apply eyeshadow to create both a day time and evening look.
We were fininshing up our makeup, with the help of a pair of Dior beauty analysts, when Ty offered to show us some advanced techniques. Highlighting, tight lining and more were the featured methods of a bonus third hour ;) SCORE!
Once we were all glammed up the class was over and we were encouraged to see the Dior staff on the sales floor for our FREE Dior and Nordstrom gifts before departing. I've included a peek at those goodies, as well as, my post Dior skin care and color applications below. List your burning beauty question below and I'll respond in a jiffy!!!
After my initial visit with my fairy godmothers in beauty yesterday, I learned about an exclusive event featuring Dior's NEW serum from their Capture Totale line. One of my favorite Dior make-up artist, Garrett, from NYC was scheduled to do eye make-up consultations so I booked my complimentary appointment and returned the next day. Garrett and I like to have fun with color when we get together and I always get a few more Dior products to add to my beauty arsenal. He usually does my entire look, which I appreciate and love, thanks G. :)

I recently visited my fairy godmothers in beauty at noticed there was a brand new look at the Dior counter. They have installed new lighting and counter tops that have 4 beauty stations for skin care and make up application. Each individualized pod if fully stock Dior products that can be used to remove any products you have on and prep your skin for a fresh faced look. I was ushered to a seat once I was done taking my pictures and given a full facial and complimentary makeup application. I use their DiorSnow line to even out my skin tone and to make my skin radiant.
While talking all thing luxe I learned that Dior is having a beauty event this weekend with one of their national makeup artist, Garrett, whom I've worked with before, remember Spring 2015? I have booked another complimentary appointment to have a new spring look created for 2016 and had a few items placed on hold that I might just take with me. I like to try before I buy so the more applications the better!
I told you I went to visit my fairy godmothers in beauty right? They always hook me up even if I just stop by to say hello. Check out the Dior and Chanel swag I snagged, over 10 mini products, just for stopping by! I've had a full week to use the perfume, mascara, body lotion, and face creams and I'm loving the results. I'll be back this weekend and was promised a Dior bag and a department store bag crammed with more swag just for my troubles :)
Beauty Bonus: When I try a new makeup product I always like to see how it looks in various settings. No one wants to look normal indoors but ghostly in natural light right? Try it before you buy it by scheduling a complimentary full makeup application and take pictures indoors and outdoors to see if the product you're considering it a good pick for you!!!
