“This look is all about champagne-nude eyes, pink milk maid cheeks and a siren mouth,” said Scali.

To prep Hendrick’s skin, Scali used Dior Capture Totale One Essential Skin Boosting Serum. “This serum disappears into the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and smooth, ” she said.

Diorskin Forever in Ivory #010 was used to even out Christina’s skin before Diorblush in Strawberry Sorbet #943 was applied to warm up the complexion.

On the eyes, Dior 1 Couleur Eyeshadow in Nude Luminescence #516 along with Diorshow Liner Waterproof in Carbon #098, Diorshow Mascara in Black were used to define.

Scali finished the look with Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Blazing Red #638.

Dior Beauty is available at Nordstrom and Sephora.
