Date: June 26. Venue: Saks Fifth Avenue (611 5th Ave)
Dior Beauty Celebrity Face Designer Ricky Wilson joins Saks Fifth Avenue for their Brushes With Greatness event and shares with Jesenia’s Goodie Bag his top picks from the Dior makeup Summer 2014 Transat Collection.
Inspired by the nautical themed Christian Dior Cruise 2014 Ready-To-Wear Collection, Dior Beauty captures maritime with sailor blue & sunset pigments for eyes, summer glow face compacts, vivid manicure hues and lipsticks so lightweight, they double as lip gloss (in delectable fruity tints).
Ricky Wilson swears by the couture eyeshadow palette in Sundeck, expressing how sand and orange translate beautifully as facial colors, as well as golden bronze and warmer tones for eyes and cheeks. With the 5 Couleurs Transat Edition, Ricky says the palette holds six interchangeable shades, and like a game of tic-tac-toe, he says you can play up your eyes in groups of 2’s and 3’s for six different looks.
For summery lips, Ricky insists on orange variations and recommends Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Pandore (a reddish-orange that’s a bright, vibrant tomato red), and the shimmery bronze effect of Dior Addict Gloss in Etincelante.
Manucure Transat makes DIY nail art fun with easy-to-apply CD Logo stickers for your manicured hands. Ricky prefers Captain, a bright orange-red nail polish that looks divine on all skin tones.
During a mini makeover with Jesenia’s Goodie Bag Editor, Ricky applied Diorshow Buildable Volum Lash-Extension Effect Mascara in Catwalk Blue (an intense aquatic blue) on the upper lashes and Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Pandore over the lips, resulting in a refreshing summer twist.
