Spring to Summer with Dior Crush Glow

Spring to Summer with Dior Crush Glow

I promised I would do a look using Dior’s Crush Glow Eyeshadow Palette, and I used it on Friday for a quick and easy look. It’s funny — I loved this look in person, but I felt like a lot of the subtlies of the shades didn’t pick-up so much on camera. It’s a great warm-toned palette for soft and subtle looks, though. I can definitely see it working as a travel palette for many.

P.S. Normally, I’d opt for a more neutral highlighter, particularly since I am warmer toned, an icy pink is not-so-neutral on me, but per my usual routine, I like to try and stay within a palette as much as possible. So just between you and me, you may want to go for a warmer highlighter (or one with less frost in its finish to tone it down, too). 🙂

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Eden Primer Potion as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply the icy pink eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply the gold eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with the coral eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend the plummy-mauve eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush the gold eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep the icy pink eyeshadowas a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Bourbon eyeliner on the lower lash line and the gold eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by sweeping lashes with Extase mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight cheekbones with Beige Tint meteorites with the 165.

For lips, apply Emotion lipstick first, and then layer Prep for Colour lipglass for a complementing lip.

I love this look Christine, I’ve been looking for neutral eyeshadows for an everyday look and I think this would suit me. Will have to try it out at my nearest Dior counter. What do you think of Benefit Highbeam as a highlighter? Confused how to use it, do I apply it after my foundation and before my finishing powder? Should it go above my cream blusher on top of my cheekbones?

Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

Thanks a lot, Brenda!

Apply it after foundation but before powder 🙂 It should go above your cream blusher!

Oh my gosh Christine, it is stunning! You can totally see the pretty, yet subtle effect of Crush Glow quint in the last pic!! Me wants!! Are you loving it? I want the both quints 🙁

I definitely expected a much warmer look from this palette, but maybe it’s just to do with the camera not picking the colours up as well? Love the lips though, which just reminded me that I also have Just add colour, but I haven’t used it yet!

It’s warm, but I don’t think this a SUPER warm palette — I think if you used the bronze shade instead of the plummy shade here, it would look warmer as well. I figured that was a pretty duh look, so I thought I’d use the plummy-mauve shade instead.

I can’t wait to play with Crush Glow. It’s a very pretty neutral EOTD. Looks quite natural. Normally, I don’t use an eye base when using Dior eyeshadows, they are pigmented enough for me. 🙂

When I first started using makeup eons ago, eye base was foreign to me. 😉 LOL

So I don’t use a base quite often unless I know the shadow needs a base to bring out the color or to prevent creasing (like when I’ll be outdoor a lot).

I LOVE how glow-y the eye is (especially the gold on your lower lashline!), but I agree that a warmer toned highlighter would make it better. Also, love the layering of Sugarbomb (my HG) and the Meteorites.

I love this — the eye is so delicate and pretty! I know those lips would pull way too orange on me, but they look absolutely wonderful with your skintone 🙂

oh wow. that looks beautiful on you Christine. I was wondering if you could help me out with a concealer issure; cause my dark circles always end up looking grayish. I’m a MAC nc35 N use that concealer shade. What am i doing wrong? thanks a lot!

Thanks, Inaya! You could try using NW35 instead, which may help 🙂 You may also try using a shade lighter – like NW30 or NC30. I’d also suggest a brightener, like Smashbox’s Photo Op.

Christine this makeup look is beautiful. I like it because it’s natural and looks so simple. Can you please try to do more looks like this one? I really need some inspiration when it comes to simple, elegant looks. 🙂 Thanks!

Thank you, Tavia! I’ll try… most seem to not care for the neutral looks so much, so I try not to post them too often, lol!

I thought this palette would be way more pigmented. Can you make the colors darker on your skin (I’m NW25) without much trouble? The colors are gorgeous, but not as “dark” as I thought they would be when you put them on your eye.

Thank you!
