Make up A-W 2017-2018 Ready-to-Wear Collection
Make-up created and styled by Peter Philips for the Dior Ready-to-Wear runway show.
For the Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 Ready-to-Wear collection, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, created a natural, luminous look.
«I wanted to give concrete expression to Maria-Grazia Chiuri’s vision for this collection, which was that of a contemporary young woman, who is emphatically free and beautiful.»
He adds, «Make-up shouldn’t be a «distraction», instead, it should emphasize the personality of each girl, with make-up that reveals without masking, and lights up each face with a perfect, natural Glow.»
Complexions were translucent and light. As Peter Philips explains, «This natural Glow effect has to be blended in several steps, but without making it too heavy. And so to begin with I applied Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer as a base, then Diorskin Forever Perfect Cushion foundation, followed by a few drops of Flash Luminizer, and Fix It for touching up. Last of all, I accentuated the areas that catch the light (brow bone, nose and cheekbones) with a hint of subtly iridescent Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer.»
Peter Philips explained that «Eyes were pure and almost bare, except for a touch of the new Diorshow Pump’n’Volume black mascara applied at the roots of the lashes for a rock’n’roll effect without being too heavy.»
He added, «For this very natural make-up look, eyebrows had to structure the face and were perfectly shaped with “DiorShow Brow Styler.»
«Lips were naturally accentuated thanks to Dior Addict Lip Sugar Scrub, which smoothes and prepares them. Then I applied Dior Addict Lip Glow color reviver balm, choosing the one best suited to each girl’s complexion from among the four shades (Pink, Lilac, Berry, and Coral). This created a sensual and natural effect, with lip color is just heightened.»
Nails were discreet with Abricot Base Coat, Diorlisse Abricot, and Gel Coat.
