Dior’s makeup artist reveals all.
Maria Grazia Chiuri presented a rebellious Fall 2019 collection for the house of Dior during Paris Fashion Week, and the makeup fit the bill.
Channeling the British punk era, her pieces evoked the urgency of the feminist movement and she even unveiled a brand new logo T-shirt reading ‘Sisterhood is Global’ that we will be seeing everywhere towards the middle of the year.
Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior make-up, designed a look that saw graphic, rock eyes take centre stage.
“I was inspired by the sassy style of English teddy girls in the late 1950s, their avant-garde style, very Londoner. the result is a very graphic and intense black eye, in a rock style reinterpreted with a bit of a punk feel.”
Below, Philips shares how you can recreate the look at home.
Dark and graphic eyes, with an upper eyelid covered entirely in black, using the waterproof eyeliner crayon in Noir Trinidad. Then, with Diorshow on stage liner in matte black, I drew a series of short, straight lines, spaced out to create a ‘star’ effect around the eyes. These lines were drawn to get a somewhat imperfect, rough finish. Next, to accentuate this very black eye, I coated the lashes first in Diorshow Maximizer 3D and then curled them using Diorshow Pump’n’Volume mascara black pump. Finally, I redefined the eyebrows, but kept them looking natural, with Diorshow Brow Styler.
The complexion was pure and natural, adapted to each skin tone using the Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation line, followed by a few correcting touches of Diorskin Undercover concealer. Lastly, I dabbed on some Flash Luminizer to highlight the face.
Very natural looking lips were prepared using lip sugar scrub, then subtly heightened with Dior Addict Stellar Shine in Mirage.
Rock and Roll indeed.
