Earlier in my quick feature about Dior's 3 Couleur palettes, particularly the one in Nude Glow which I had received, I mentioned I would post up some snap shots of how I wear it and how it works so here it is!
The 3 Couleurs are designed to be quick and handy for daily use. You wouldn't find overly strong tones or see a shot at complex looks with these. Not to say that you can't try, but the idea of them is for everyday use.
Across the 4 colors available, the 3 Couleur shadows provide a gentle wash of color on the lid with the option of some dimensional shimmer. There is also an inclusion of a matte black for a soft touch of definition.
Here's a look at how I have been using the Dior 3 Couleur in Nude Glow.
What I do:
- First, using an eyeshadow brush I apply the creamy brown shade (left on palette) all over the lid, blending it just into the crease.
- Next, using my ring finger or the fatter sponge-tip provided, I dab the golden shimmers (right on palette) over the center of my lid and under my brow bone.
- After lining my eyes thinly with a liquid liner, I then dip the finer sponge-tip in the black shadow and go over the liner, blending it out a little. This gives a subtle 'smoked liner' sort of definition.
The finished eye look is super simple to do and since I do it on a daily basis, with glasses and without the fuss of mascara, the whole eye process takes me less than 5 minutes to complete!
Yet the soft smokey black eyeshadow gives the eyes enough definition that it isn't harsh yet not overly bare as well. The fine gold reflects also help to brighten the eye area despite the simple wash of color on the lid.

Highlighted products were provided by companies/distributors,
I was not obliged to use/feature them in LOTDs.
Incase you are wondering, the fav-o cheek and lip phase I am going through now would be the recently mentioned Diorific Lipstick in 340 Diorling paired with Sleek's Powder Blush in Rose Gold.
The 2 shades seem so similar in terms of finish – pinkish with a golden sheen – that I just had to pair them up. NARS Orgasm would also work with this but I may have misplaced mine :( *shock horror*
That being said, hope everyone's had a great start of the week and....
.... yes! I caved and went back to 'looking young' – the bangs are back!
Thanks for reading!
