Beauty in Bloom with Malibu Diaz


Every spring and fall, while the fashion houses are hustling and bustling with the season’s latest strutting down the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan, style insiders are also excited to discover the latest trends in beauty. Will “pinks” make a bold appearance on lip pallets this season or will “the nudes” of the 90s take center stage? BSCENE’s Editor-in-Chic, Veronica Terres, took time to seek out the answers to questions like these and more, so that East Texans can start wearing what beauty bloggers probably already have in their makeup bags. She reaches out to local Dillard's Chanel makeup artist, and one of BSCENE's favorites makeup gals, Malibu Diaz.


Q. What was the biggest beauty trend last year, that is still going strong this season?

A.Highlighting and natural brows!

Q. What is a definite toss-out-of-the-cosmetic-bag product this season?

A.You can toss out your contour kit. It’s not in this year.

Q. What colors are trending this spring for lips, cheeks and lids?

A.The colors for spring this year are bright peony pink and intense orange, for both lids, cheeks and lips. Metallics and shiny glosses are also on trend.

Q. What's your favorite beauty look from this season's New York Fashion Week runways?

A.The pops of color on lips and cheeks, with soft eyes.

Q. What’s your favorite makeup tip that you can share with your customers, and can share with our readers, that can be incorporated into their regular beauty routines? 

A.One of my tricks is to mix an illuminating primer with foundation, to provide a radiant, glistening look. It also helps skin look natural and fresh. 

Q. Do you have any predictions for the fall?

A.I predict it will be bold, dark lips.

Q. What's your go-to Chanel product, which will never go out 

of style?

A.Chanel N* 5! It has been a top seller since its introduction in 1921. Our new Chanel N*5 L'eau offers a more modern take on the classic N*5 scent.


Highlighting is still in, and of course brushes are your best friend. But now, the trend is to have glowing skin with less makeup, and punctuate the face with bold lips and cheeks.


Our newest Chanel product is the Les Beiges pressed powder. It's our new healthy glow powder that gives the skin a luminous, bronzed, natural look, without settling into flaws. It will be available mid-April.


We have a new serum called Blue Serum. The difference from other products out there is that it’s like a diet for the skin. It hydrates, firms and helps make skin appear smoother. Based on the name, the three key ingredients are from the blue zones of the world, where people live the longest and are the healthiest. Chanel is the only brand that carries something of this magnitude. It’s amazing!

"Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots"

Oct 01 @ 01:00 pm | Tyler Museum of Art | Tyler, TX

~~One of the most highly anticipated exhibitions in recent years comes to the Tyler Museum of Art with “Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots,” open to the public Sunday, Oct. 1 through Jan. 7, 2018 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.

The exhibition, organized by the TMA, features close to 40 works by the late Pop Art icon, including a series of Warhol’s signature silkscreen prints drawn from the Cochran Collection of LaGrange, Ga., and a collection of his celebrity-centric Polaroid photographs from the Meadows Museum of American Art at Centenary College of Louisiana.

“Screen Prints & Snapshots” showcases several distinct bodies of work from the later career of Warhol, notably the silkscreen prints from the 1986 “Cowboys and Indians” he completed shortly before his death, spotlighting such iconic subjects as John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Geronimo; his 1981 Myths series, featuring touchstones of American pop culture including Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody and Superman; and selections from his “Flash,” “Flowers” and “Television” series. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Polaroids and silver gelatin prints, shot from 1958 until Warhol’s 1987 death and offering insight into his intimate relationship with his celebrity friends – Dolly Parton, Jack Nicklaus and Pia Zadora among them.

General exhibition admission is $6 for adults and $4 for seniors. Admission is free for TMA members, students, children under 12, Tyler Junior College faculty/staff and City of Tyler employees. Regular Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays and major holidays). For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit
