Dior makeup collections are always ahead of the curve.If you’ve been wondering which eye shadow colors are worth exploring this spring, look no further than the Dior Trianon makeup collection.
The Trianon collection is inspired by the royal beauty of Marie-Antoinette and her private domain at Versailles, the Petit Trianon, which was surrounded by blooming gardens of flowery pastels.
The 5 Couleurs Trianon Edition palette in Pastel Fontanges highlights the hot pastel trend seen on the fashion runways and at red carpet events.
The eyeshadow palette contains shades in pastel blue, pale yellow, peachy pink, and light silver. To line your lashes and add depth, the palette also contains a taupe shadow.
In Canada, you can pick up the Dior 5 Couleurs Trianon Edition Couture Eyeshadow Palette at Hudson’s Bay.

If you suffer from acne, you’re not alone. Over 50 million North Americans experience acne breakouts, including up to 85% of teens and young adults and 20% of adults.
Causes of Acne
There are many reasons you may be experiencing acne. Environmental pollutants, bacteria, excess oil, and improper cleansing have all been linked to acne. So has stress, hormonal changes (tell me about it), and fatigue.
Beyond that, acne can also create emotional issues. Research shows that it can lead to self-consciousness, embarrassment, lack of confidence, and poor self-esteem. In addition, women also try to cover their blemishes with concealer or foundation which make the problem even worse.
At Home Solution
Newly launched Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel can help treat your acne at home (boy, could I have used this gel last week).
Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is clinically proven to treat blemishes with results as good as a leading topical acne drug.
The clearing gel implements a 4-in-1 Clearing Complex which contains exfoliating and anti-blemish agents (Salicylic Acid) and sebum-controlling and anti-irritant agents (Sea Whip Extract). Also, the unique alcohol and water base provides quick absorption while witch hazel water helps minimize excess surface oil.
Spring can’t come too soon! Get a jump on the season with one of the hottest trends straight off the runway and Oscar red carpet: flowery pastel colors.
