As a displaced Southerner, I enjoy talking about Southern women, their diversity and charm, their strength and unique character. Makeup is my world. I am a makeup artist living and working in Los Angeles, but I was thrilled to have an opportunity to come to New Orleans to do a story about Southern beauty. I am presenting my impression of the blend that represents both the sophistication and charm of the modern Southern belle. Because “belle” is French for “beautiful,” I chose a perfect brand to represent the treatment, refinement and the range of sumptuous color for this particular story: Christian Dior Cosmetics. With jewelry, clothing and Dior makeup from Saks Fifth Avenue and additional jewelry from Katy Beh and Mignon Faget, we were able to come up with some really beautiful looks. This story moves from bright, clean daytime casual to edgy, modern evening elegance. New Orleans embraces its own pace and style, and these looks are like spring, fresh and inviting.
