Foundation is one of my favorite thing about makeup! I’m all about getting that flawless skin whether naturally with great skin care, or faking it with the perfect foundation.

What is the best way to identify the right foundation for your skin tone?
Natural light! Make sure you are in natural light when choosing a foundation shade. And, it should match perfectly with the base of your neck.

What is the biggest mistake women make when wearing foundation?
Wearing too much foundation or the wrong shade – either too dark or too light. Finding the right shade and right foundation texture is crucial. The skin’s natural highlights should be shining through.

How often/what time of year should a woman have her foundation shade matched?
As often as needed; every time the skin tone changes. You should have several shades of foundation in your makeup wardrobe.

Beat the Heat with Dior sweat-proof makeup tips!

Looking for ways to beat the heat this Summer? Diorshow Celebrity Makeup Artist, Ricky Wilson, offers some beauty tips to keep you looking both pretty and cool when the temperature rises: “Makeup that holds up in high heat situations is never thick or textured. Less is definition more is when you know you are going to sweat. Remember to always blot before powder to eliminate makeup build and creating texture”.

The following are the Dior products Ricky Wilson recommends:

DiorSkin Airflash Spray Foundation: “Sweat proof and transfer resistant. Since it is so light weight and breathable it gives you coverage without breaking down in high heat and humidity.”

Dior Waterproof Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black: “Perfect for lining through eyes. It’s silky smooth and goes on with ease but won’t budge once it sets.”
