Be a Bird of Paradise

It's officially SUMMER people!  Time to start wearing corals, turquoise and bronzer - if not for any other reason than, you can!  Yeah!

Dior knows that when the summer weather hits, us beauty addicts want and NEED hot summer colors to satisfy our appitite!  so they launched Bird of Paradise (Nordstroms,, Sephora, Bloomingdales)

The look is like an exotic peacock

The entire collection is gorgeous
but I've scoped out the specific products that you should splurge on (Dior is not really a friendly price point)!!

If you were immediately drawn to the eye shadow in these looks and you really don't have anything like it in your makeup kit - then at the very least you need to splurge on the shadow palette ($60) - which is boldly pigmented, perfectly shimmery, and ultra smooth and soft on the eye!

You'll see that there are TWO palettes in the collection.  I prefer the one with the blue in the middle (featured) because it gives you all the tones and shades on that spectrum to create gorgeous eye looks (you can also grab a different compact from your own kit that has the pale colors in it like the other one!

For the eyeliner, I actually prefer a navy liner, rather than overload on the aqua color, Dior's aqua liner is $40
<em>Dior</em> Summer'13 <em>Bird Of Paradise</em> Diorshow Liner Waterproof 348 Aqua ...
But you'll get the same affect with Stila's Waterproof liner for $18 (sephora)

Say you have similar shadows and liners, and you're looking for something else - you'd probably just pick up a lipcolor right?!  Well scratch that (although Dior's are very nice, they just aren't worth the money to me!) and drop $40 on their new Nude Tab BB Cream

 <em>Dior</em> Beauty Summer Look 2013 Nude Tan BB Cream

This product is an extension of the original Nude BB Cream line

and what it has is a bronze glow to it that is super natural with a soft finish that actually protects skin with Broad Spectrum SPF.  Although this product is a moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, skintone evener and smoother - it also gives you that boost of color if you've got a tan or are regularly using tan towels (I love it with that combo!!!!)
