Make-up created and styled by Peter Philips for the Dior Fall 2016 runway show.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make Up, designed a contrasting look in harmony with a collection showcasing a blend of materials and colors.
“I created an edgy makeup look that is both rock and sophisticated. The focus is on the lips, with deep, intense colour. The eyes are light while the complexion is pale and perfectly even,” explained Peter Philips.
“Lips displayed a very rich plum shade that was completely matte. Rock and chic, it is the centre of attention,” emphasized Peter Philips.
“To get this intense colour, the lips were first lined in Dior Contour lip liner in “Prune Troublant,” before Diorific Mat“Troublante” was applied. The result is sophisticated, with a sensual, pigmented velvet effect.”
The complexion was velvety and perfectly even, in contrast to the dramatic lip. It was achieved thanks to the Diorskin Forever range 3-step routine, as explained by Peter Philips: “To begin with I used Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Make Up Base, which ensures long wear, adds light and evens out combination skin.”
“Next,” he continued, “I applied Diorskin Forever Fluid Foundation using the new bevelled sponge that makes it easier to work on detail.”
“Then, as the third step, I used a brush to apply Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder which is both light and invisible, eliminating shine from the T-zone. Lastly, I created a shimmering touch of light at the top of the cheekbones with Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens in “Glowing Pink.”
Peter Philips described “eyes, lightly made up with lots of radiance for a false ‘nude’ effect”
“I covered the eyelid with an iridescent champagne shade using Diorshow mono in “Délicate,” and then I shaded the outer corner of the eye with a touch of matte brown shadow using Diorshow mono in “Animal.” Brows were precisely emphasized with the Backstage Pros All-In-Brow 3D brow kit.
