Christian Dior Bird of Paradise Spring Summer Collection 2013! Xx

You just have to check out the totally stunning
Dior Bird of Paradise
Summer 2013 Makeup Collection.

A "tropical couture" breakaway by Dior. 
 TYEN has been magically inspired by the legendary
bird of paradise designing a make up palette for eyes and nails in exotic shades
of azure blue to indigo and peacock green to hibiscus pink.

Lips are coral, peach and rose tones, with 
the glistening of the brand new fruit shaded Jelly Pens 
and the complexion is extra specially radiant this season 
with a brand new velvety Tan BB Creme and 
Paradise Duo that uniquely combines a luminous bronzer and blush.

We went to the Ice Cream Parlour on Harrods 3rd Floor
to see the Dior Bird of Paradise Collection
with Jamie Coombes and Jess and Emily from Vogue Beauty Department

Jessica from Vogue explains the new collection and the beauty trends.

Jamie stressed the importance of using two brushes to apply
the shadow - he was using the Diorshadow Mono in Parati a beautiful deep dark blue.

He used the first brush to apply, pressing to avoid fall, and the second one

to blend.

With the second blending brush Jamie said 
to take time to stretch the shade up to socket.

Jamie then applied the bottom left hand corner colour from the new Palette Blue Lagoon over the top of the Parati and blended again
 stretching outwards and upwards to the outer corners of the eye sockets.

You can also use the gorgeous mono in Feather

For the lashes Jamie started with the gorgeous Dior lash maximiser 
which is full of botanicals and conditioner. 
 You can use this at night on its own as a treament 
for the lashes, and on the brows to fix them.  
Here Jamie is using the Bright Blue Mascara 
and gets creative by painting the tips in a different colour.
He takes a clean mascara brush, dips it in the lash maximiser 
then brushes it across Dior Mono in bright Pink 'Bow' (below)
and then brushes on the tips of the lashes.  
You can do this in any colour combination.  Just get Creative! Xx

Here you can see the amazing Lashes that Jamie created
with the bright electric blue mascara and pink tips.

Then time to start apply the Swarovski elements which come already
glued.  Each one is applied carefully with tweezers.
Jamie said that if we wanted to use our gems again, we could use eyelash glue.

made up with the new Diorskin Nude Tan Summer BB Crème,

for Summer in Pink

and on the lips the Jelly Lip Pen in Gaia

After Jamie's demonstration we tried the make up looks
based on the Bird of Paradise colours and the look at the SS13 show
Check our Post:Dior SS13
which had been created by Pat McGrath

There was an iPad showing how to create the looks.

Here are the Dior Monos being used
And the Swarovski Crystals specially created for Dior for the Show

 This is my look using Lilas Mitzah - the purple
Dior Mono Shade, and aqua colour Swarovski crystals.

We also could have a manicure with the Dior Duos
and choose between clear, deep blue and aqua gems.

I chose the gorgeous peacock feather blue from the first duo,
and the pink on my ring finger from the second duo Bahia, with an aqua jewel.

 that shimmers with blue and exotic greens.

LIPS: simple and full, lips are delicately coloured with a nude brown tone.
CHEEKS: coral blush adds radiance and light to the complexion, 
enhancing the entire look. 
NAILS: they are transformed into peacock feathers,
 displaying a spectrum of blues.

Makeup Style Glowy Exotic

FACE: powdered, with an ultra-natural tan.

EYES: acid-coloured, displaying a wet-look blue 
accentuated by subtle hints of glistening gold. 
LIPS: emphasized by an extra dose of colour,

NAILS: the hands and feet nail varnish combination
