Could it Be the Perfect Primer & Color Correct in One?

sgI’m always on the lookout for the latest greatest thing in makeup. I came across Christian Dior’s Fix It 2-in-1 Prime & Color Correct sticks a while back, but had a primer color combo I wanted to finish.

I now have the Dior green primer concealer, a necessary color to neutralize the bit of red on my chin and forehead. A week into using this product, I’m impressed. It’s smooth, goes on easily, and doesn’t cake. It blends easily with the Dior Fluid Foundation Brush, number 11.

What color will work best for you? Here is some info on all the combo options:

• Blue: This lilac-blue evens out  yellow toned  skin for an enhanced glow. Dabbed on the light catching areas, the forehead and the tips of the cheeks, it gives an instantly fresh and rested look.

• Apricot: perfect for deep or tanned olive complexions designed to tone down dark spots, hyper-pigmentation and dark circles.

• Yellow: corrects dark spots and under-eye circles for lighter skin tones and neutralizes lips that have a blue hue, bringing out the true color of your lipstick.

• Green: the anti-redness ally that tones down flushed areas of the complexion.

What Color Should Your Front Door Be?

doorLately, I’m all about quizzes.

Think you’re hip enough for orange? Or optimistic enough for yellow? Take our front-door personality quiz and find out. Your front door is the perfect place to express yourself with color. But which color truly reflects you? This handy quiz is here to help.

Here are my results:  Your front door color should be … Yellow!

Yellow: You’re contemplative and peaceful. You like to make statements, but in a guided, subtle way rather than being in-your-face. You’re intelligent and insightful. And no matter what happens, you’re always able to see the bright side of things. Your door should be yellow.
