How to: Get bold graphic eyes spotted at Dior Haute Couture AW16
To each its own
Inspired by the idea of creating makeup that is "made-to-measure" quite like the couture looks presented on the runway, Peter Philips took up the challenge of applying eyeliner in forty different ways according to each model during Dior Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2016. What transpired was exaggeratedly bold and black graphic eyeliner along with a gold textured effect that complemented the gold embroidery detailing on the couture pieces. Here's how you can get the look:
Eyeliner was applied using DiorShow Pro-liner Pro Black in a graphic style, including underlined, framed, and ringed, but mostly exaggerated. For the dramatic gold effect, apply Dior Addict Fluid Shadow Phenix with a brush in a colour-blocking manner. Coat the upper lashes with Diorshow Maximiser 3D and then with Diorshow Iconic Over Curl Over Black for beautifully curled lashes. For a contrast against the graphic eyes, eyebrows were kept neat and defined.
Philips wanted a fresh natural look, using Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer to prime the face then Diorskin Forever Fluid Foundation for a flawless canvas. A light dusting of loose powder helps to give the skin a beautiful finish, along with a touch of blue on the cheeks, courtesy of DiorBlush Edition Splendor n° 671.
Let the eyes do all the talking by leaving the lips natural. "A dab of Fix It neutralised the lip colour, then I applied a blend of Lip Glow Pomade and Lip Glow Pink for discreet colour and soft shine."
