We are very exited to take you to the backstage at DIOR Couture Show Spring Summer 2017 and learn how Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup created a luminous look, a face with the perfect glow.
“I delved into the mysterious atmosphere and the play on seduction in this collection, which presents the ‘hide & reveal’ aspect of a masked ball. The sophistication of Stephen Jones’ creations and the masks on some of the looks were also a source of inspiration for creating a poetic gaze. This is a young woman with a modernized pre-Raphaelite beauty. It was essential to emphasize her soft luminosity and sensuality.”
-Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director for Dior Makeup

Diorblush #756 Rose Cherie – (sub Rosy Glow).
Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer #001
“To get this ultra-luminous and natural glow effect, I didn’t want too much texture. I needed to keep the fine texture of the skin, so I applied Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer as the base, then Dior Forever Fluid Foundation. Next I perked up the cheeks with a light rosy cloud of Diorblush #756 Lastly, I applied touches of Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer #001 to obtain a pearly light at strategic points: the brow bone, the bridge of the nose, the Cupid’s bow.” – Peter Philips

“The eyes are nude with no mascara and pale eyelids unified with Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow #317 Metaphore) and a line of the new Diorshow Khôl #529 Beige. This created a unified base to bring out the play on the starry glitter, which I created several variations of to personalise each girl. In one look, the glitter was applied in a “Stardust” shower on the cheekbones swept up towards the temples. Then I also chose the metallic purity of a single, bigger, more ‘rebel attitude’ star placed either on the inner corner of each eye or at the centre of the lower lid.” – Peter Philips
