After five successful years at the helm of Chanel Makeup, the current Creative and Image Director of Dior, Peter Philips is combining innovation with artistry with his debut collection, Cosmopolitan for Autumn/Winter 2015. From liquid eye shadows that give the eyelids a lacquer-like shine and magnetic shimmer to velvety-hued creme blush in the form of a jumbo-sized stick, it's suffice to say that Peter Philips's ideal Dior woman is avant-garde with a dash of sophistication and mystery.
Dior Addict Fluid Shadow
Dior's revolutionary new product is touted to capture the shine that bathes the lids in a film of light. Made from a refined and lightweight texture, the Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in six shades, from metallic silver to golden beige.
Tip: Apply the fluid on your eyelid but keep your eyes closed for optimal drying without transfer and an overall glossy finish. For a subtler effect, line your lash line with the fluid for a modern-chic statement.
5 Couleurs - Exubérante
Representing the elusive beauty of a Dior woman, the new limited-edition palette provides distinctive elements of warm hues from amber beige to denim blue. "I played with a makeup effect that produces an alluring intensity regardless of the skin tone, regardless of whether the eyes are light or, just the opposite, deep and dark," explains Peter Philips.
Tip: Apply the medium shade on the entire eyelid and line the lash line with the darkest shade, then apply the lightest shade to highlight the brow bone, and the inner corners of the eyes for an instantly brighter and livelier look.
Diorblush Cheek Stick
What better way for a quick blush touch-up when you are out and about than a jumbo-sized blush stick? Despite its creme-like texture, this ultra-pigmented blush offers a powdery finish quite like a compact powder blush.
Tip: For a natural touch of colour, dab some product onto your fingers and blend well on the apples of your cheeks. Apply directly on your cheeks and blend out for a more pigmented flush.
Dior Cosmopolitan collection is available at all Dior boutiques and counters from August 2015.
