Wisteria Fantasy

Dior Airflash Foundation

Rating 5 out of 5

Finally! Airbrush foundation of great quality in the UK. I could only ever order airbrush make up from the US but am sooo glad Dior came up with this.
I first saw it in Selfridges and the makeup artist at the Dior counter (who is brilliant) showed me that you have spray it at  a distance from your face with a really light touch. It's a mist effect so you have to press very lightly on the foundation while holding your arm under the area you are spraying to prevent spreading. It feels like you are wearing air on your skin.
It gives you a perfect airbrushed look. You have to set it ever so slightly with a brush but really if you spray it correctly you shouldn't need it. I did go to a few Dior counters in Bantalls in Kingston, John Lewis and Selfridges and unfortunately the makeup artists in the UK don't seem to be as airbrush make up savvy as the artists in the US so they will all try and advise you to spray it on a brush then apply it or spray it on your face and then correct with a brush. IGNORE THEM!

The Perfect Companions: Smashbox lipstick and Bourjois Kajal

Bourjois Queen Attitude Kohl Kajal

Rating: 4 out of 5

Smashbox lipstick "Honey"

Rating: 4 out of 5

The Bourjois Kajal is perfect for thick "Gypsy Middle Eastern" look! Many people find it difficult to put on as it can be quite thick and not effective for drawing sharp lines. However, if you want a little eye drama, its the perfect look.
I discovered that it works particularly well with Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick - Honey. The lipstick has a "nude" colour but still gives a nice warmth to your lips
Really lovely and a really good contrast with the Kohl. Definitely made for each other!

Azuni triple hoop stone cord necklace (amazonite)

This is a lovely product. When I first heard of this brand, I went to their website to check it out. The jewellery seemed lovely so I went to the shops to try a few necklaces.
I fell in love with their stuff, in particular the this necklace.
It's very bohemian chic and looks lovely on plus the turquoise faceted amazonite beads form a lovely and unusual colour. The workmanship is fantastic. Quality jewellery and I highly recommend it!
