Fine, Mother Nature, we’ll just go ahead and have summer without you. Nautical tees? Check. Oversized straw hats? Check. SPF 50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen? Check. Dior summer 2014 makeup, Transat Edition? Check. Dior Cannage Edition? And check. We be cruisin’.
dior summer 2014 makeup: transat edition
The Dior summer 2014 makeup collection, Dior Transat, is available as of today at The Bay. We recommend at least one Transat Edition Dior Addict lipstick (Cruise or Mayday) or one Transat Edition Dior Addict Lip Gloss (Seafarer or Offshore), plus one Dior Nude Shimmer Powder as a powerful antidote to unseasonable weather. Here, look:
dior summer 2014: transat edition skin
Diorskin Nude Tan Prime & Bronze ($42, limited edition) is a light, supersheer lotion that delivers an instant subtle sun-warmed tint upon application. It’s a gradual tanner, so expect a lovely, natural golden-tan effect in about a week of daily use. (Don’t forget your neck. You don’t want that bald-eagle pale-face-dark-neck thing.)
Diorskin Nude Shimmer Powder 001 Rose/Pink ($57) makes for a pretty custom blushing sheen or glow or discreet sculpting depending on where your brush lands in the compact. Try it as eye shadow too, and lightly dabbed over lip balm for an on-the-go hint of colour.
Diorskin Nude Shimmer Powder 002 Ambre/Amber ($42) serves as bronzer, sculpting powder, highlighter, eye shadow — and patted onto lip balm with a fingertip, it yields a soft, velvet-y sheen. (The peachiest shade is so pretty that way.)

Diorblush Cannage Edition Coral and Pink ($60 each, exclusively at Holt Renfrew) are not part of the Transat collection — they’re the Cannage Edition part of this post. They landed at Holt Renfrew (and Saks) today.

Dior Addict Lipstick in 611 Cruise and 651 Mayday ($33 each, limited edition) are high impact shades that go brilliantly with a touch of bronzer and lashings of black mascara. Done and done. I see Lipstick Diary: What I Wore That Day x 2 in my future.
Dior Addict Gloss in 642 Seafarer and 412 Offshore ($31 each, limited edition; not available at Holt Renfrew) Seafarer is as juicy on lips as it looks in the tube, just more sheer; Offshore gives lips a luxurious touch-of-copper shimmer.
