Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, created a natural and minimalist look, recalling the beauty of a Flemish painting.

“The make-up reveals a very pure aesthetic,” explains Peter Philips.

“I designed it to accompany Raf Simons’s modern collection. It suits the spectacular volume of the unconventional silhouettes, presenting an ethereal yet very contemporary heroine.”

“This young woman is angelically beautiful, yet still evocative, and subtly sensual,” he adds. “Her face looks like something out of a Flemish painting, and she looks like a Botticellian beauty, version 2.0.”

MAKE UP

Complexion

Complexions were pale and absolutely flawless, with a slight sheen. As Peter Philips explained, “there’s a hint of “wet-look” that subtly evokes powerful emotions.”

“Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation was blended into the skin for a perfectly even and luminous base,” he specified, while “redness and blemishes were concealed with the Fix It stick, and a few touches of Skinflash were added for a transparent finish.”

Eyes

As Peter Philips explained, “the eyes were bare except for a ring of translucent peachy coral created using Diorshow Mono in Pareo.

The eye shadow was applied lightly across the eyelid using the fingertips, then blended out toward the temples.

Lips

“Lips looked completely natural and transparent with Lip Maximizer patted on for subtle shine.”

Nails

“In Dior Vernis Grège n°413, nails extend the natural skin tone, for a trompe-l’oeil effect.” Peter Philips specified.

HAIR

Styled by Guido Palau. Hair too, looked very natural, like a Botticellian beauty. Gentle waves were worn long and loose over the shoulders.
