We love Dior makeup and so does top french makeup artist Rika Bitton! Bitton is known for her makeup expertise with countless fashion and beauty editorials in Elle, Grazia, Biba, Sicky, Hope Street and many other established and independent magazines including our very own IRK Magazine.
We all know that Dior stands for luxury and taking out your beautiful Dior lipstick and compact blush to fix your makeup just feels extra special! But what is most important is the quality of the makeup. So when professional makeup artist Rika Bitton said Dior was one of her favourite brands we asked her why?
According to Rika Bitton, “Dior pigments are the best out there. The range and quality of the foundations are superior to none and blend beautifully with the wide range of model skin tones I work with daily. I also highly recommend their lipsticks. Dior makes a perfect Red lipstick (Mat 950 SPLENDOR) which has just the right amount of blue in the red to make it a classic. Dior is all about the pigments!!!
Rika also says “I only use Diorshow mascara because of the large brush that separates and lengthens each lash giving the best volume.” Diorshow’s formula enriched with microfibres reproduces the effect of lash extensions. Its patented AIR-LOCK™ wiper prevents the formula from drying out in the tube, for a fresh application, day after day. Its wax texture coats the lashes with each stroke of the brush for increased volume. Its special formula helps smooth lashes for even more shape, coverage and volume.
We also asked Rika for a makeup tip and she said the best advice she can give is “before you even start putting makeup on, clean, moisturize and massage your face regularly. Massaging your face will increase circulation and elasticity causing fresher, smoother skin with less wrinkles.”
Dior’s makeup will be featured in our next print issue out March 2017. Rika Bitton used Dior products to create, photography duo French Cowboy’s, “Vegas Cowgirl”.
