Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director for Dior Make-up, created for Dior Cruise 2017 collection an ultra-modern make-up look as a counterpoint to a show based on memories and emotions. Presented at the magnificent Blenheim Palace, this Cruise collection effectively renews links with an exceptional place, in which the House of Dior had previously shown collections in 1954 and 1958.
The eyes are the focal point of this look and a veritable manifesto for graphic modernity. Peter Phillips explained: “I used the deep bronze shade from the 5 Couleurs palette Parisian sky, which I applied as a colour-block in a single sweep over the entire eyelid, from the lash root to the eyebrows. This extreme look was chosen to contrast with the Baroque beauty of the décor”. Eyebrows were emphasized with Diorshow Brow Chalk.
Very luminous, sculpted with subtle touches to structure faces as described by Peter Philips: “After evening out the complexion with Diorskin Forerver Fluid Foundation, I created shape by gently contouring with the DiorBlush Light & contour jumbo stick. Applied to the hollows of the cheeks as well as the parts of the face that catch the light, its two shades enabled us to emphasize the architecture of the face in a nuanced transparent way: As a finishing touch, I applied just a hint of iridescent Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer. This make-up, blended gradually in a ‘pointillist” style, provided a natural and luminous result”.
Very natural, emphasized very slightly with light peach shade of Dior Addict Gloss in Gorgeous.

Styled by Guido Palau, hair was pulled back and slicked down with gel, while the lengths were natural and hung freely down the models’ backs.
