As enchanting as the couture frocks were, the magic of the moment would be lost without the ethereal beauty looks crafted and styled by Peter Philips for the Dior Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture repeat show in Tokyo.
With a Dior Show Backstage beauty pass and the inside scoop from Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, Peter Philips, himself, we are about to give you a guide to recreating the pre-Raphaelite dreamscape on your own:
Akin to the fairytale vibes the show gave out, complexions should be kept light and pure. Philips explains: "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." Apply Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer as a base.
Prep the skin with gentle touches of the Dior Forever Perfect Cushion Foundation that covers imperfections for an even canvas.
"Next I perked up the cheeks." A light cloud of Diorblush n°756 and 876, along with touches of Diorskin Nude Air Luminiser n°001 on the highpoints of the face gives off a pearly and rosy effervescence.
Doe-like eyes can be achieved sans mascara. Keep lashes nude but draw light in with an innocent sweep of Diorshow Mono n°826 "Backstage" over the eyelids.
Top the peepers off with a barely-there line of Diorshow Khôl n°529 in beige.
Lightly enhance the lips for a sensual but natural effect with Dior Addict Lacquer Stick n°550 "Tease" by dabbing it in the middle of the lower lip. "When you keep application light, its creamy texture and discreet shine give the lips a plumped look."
The magic touch to starry-eyed wonders: Starshaped glitter to adorn the eyes. "I created several variations to personalise each girl." Likewise, pick a style that suits your tastes and the occasion best. "Stardust" showers from temples to cheekbones deliever ultimate fairy-vibes but there is "metallic purity" in a single, bigger star placed either on the inner corner of each eye or at the centre of the lower lid.
