Hi, I?m Ricky Wilson, Dior celebrity makeup artist, and I?m here with Sheila, and we are going to show you how to get the latest look, direct from the runway for this season. We?re going to add a little bit of Rosy Glow. I love this product because it may seem bright, but it works with your body chemistry to reveal your signature shade of pink, and it gives you the most beautiful flush! So I always tell all my girls at home not to be afraid of it. And the thing that I love to do with the product is start at the ?apple,? but you don?t want to take that rule way into left field. You want to use the blush brush just to massage the color into the skin up toward your temples. And I love this because it?s a self-adjusting blush?it looks good on every skin tone from light to medium, or dark. And it just gives you this most beautiful, radiant flush to the cheeks. Another tip that I have when applying Rosy Glow: Make sure that you start about an inch away from your nose, so you don?t want the blush to get close to your nose, because you want a uniform application. And you don?t want your skin to look ruddy. Ok Sheila, are you ready for some eyes? We?re going to keep it very simple using two of the wonderful new Dior mono eyeshadows. The thing thats really great about the eyeshadows is that they can be used wet or dry. So if you wanted a really nice, everyday makeup look, you can use it dry. And if you want it really intense and sexy and dramatic for evening you can just wet your brush and apply the eyshadow wet. And that?s going to really bump up the intensity. So we?re going to start with one of my favorite colors, this one is called ?Ribbon,? and its a really beautiful soft, glowing pink. We?re going to use this as the base eyeshadow. So with eyeshadow, you always want to keep in mind that you don?t want to pile it on. You don?t want to have so much eyeshadow on that that?s all you see. And I always say that professional results require professional brushes. You can?t get professional eyeshadow looks using the little applicators that they come with, or your fingers. We?re just taking this color, starting in the inner corner of the eye and working it out underneath the eyebrow. And what this does, is give us a nice matte to the eyes and draws visual interest. So if you wanted something really easy for daytime, you could just do this with some mascara and eyeliner, but we?re going to take it one step further. The next color we?re going to use is so hot?it?s called ?Velvet? and it?s all about textures and playing with different textures of eyeshadow. This is a beautiful, rich taupe that looks good with whatever you?re wearing, so its not situation-specific. It gives you a soft, subtle smoky- or cat-eye, whatever mood that you?re in. We start with this color on the eyelid, and we?re just going to build it up. You want to press the color into the eyelid and the reason that you want to press is because a lot of women, when they apply the eyeshadow, they sweep the eyeshadow on, and it ends up all underneath they eye, and on your cheeks and everything. A tip that I have is ?stippling,? which is just a fancy word for pressing the eyeshadow into the eyelid. I love the texture of this Velvet eyeshadow because it blends effortlessly into the other color. That?s how you can tell if an eyeshadow is really high quality?if it blends super easily. So we?re covering the eyelid, and since we?re doing something kind of soft and smoky, we are not going to take that dark color up too high, we are just going to stop it at the crease of the eye, and use a blending brush to fade it out. Now that we?ve applied the eyeshadow, it?s so important to blend it, and blending is a step that a lot of women miss. Take a larger brush and make little circles, to have one color marry into the next. And what this is going to do is going to diffuse the color, soften it, and take the edge off. Next, we are going to do a little smudging underneath the eye using the same color. We are going to start on the outer end of the eye and work our way over. This is perfect if you wanted to do something more intense in the way of eyeliner and less diffused?you can wet your brush a little bit and it will give you a lot more intensity and drama.
