I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

I loved the beauty look at the recent Dior Spring Haute Couture show in Paris. In its simplicity, lightness and femininity, with a hint of sophistication, it exactly reflected the haute couture collection.

Models wore their hair loose, natural and smoothly side-parted.  Nude-effect complexions, subtle bronze eye-shadow, a little mascara and natural looking pink nails were the background to the sensuous, bright red lips. Rouge Dior lipstick was worn in either Trafalgar (844) or 999 (999).

I decided to give this look a try for Spring and bought Rouge Dior in Trafalgar.  

Rouge Dior lipstick - Couture Colour, Voluptuous Care - contains a marine crista extract (for cell stimulation and regeneration) and hyaluronic acid beads (to instantly plump and moisturize lips).

It's dark shiny case, with silver Dior "cannage" pattern ring and cap engraved with silver CD initials, is in itself a chic accessory.

Footnote for allergy sufferers:

NATorigin Lipstick, (www.natorigin.co.uk) is an excellent lipstick made from 100% natural ingredients.  It has a lovely texture - sheer, shiny, soft and smooth.  They currently offer six shades. For bright, Spring lips I would suggest 51 Bio Coral (a brick red).
