#ICYMI: Dior’s Haute Couture Makeup Is The Stuff of Dreams
Specks of gold stars above the cheekbones? Sure thing, Dior. We guarantee you won't be able to stop browsing through this gallery.| April 24, 2017
Wait what, Dior had another couture show?! Well yes, yes they did. Sort of. Because good things deserve to be shared, Dior recently decided to hold a repeat of their Spring/Summer ’17 Haute Couture show, but in Tokyo’s Ginza the second time around. Now that we’ve taken a closer look at the makeup, which, by the way, is the stuff of literal fairy tales, we secretly think that Ginza was part of the plan all along. We’re talking good stars at the inner corners of the eyes and tiny stars right above the cheekbones. When you add on the tousled cotton candy hair and headgear, the girls looked more like wood nymphs than models.
So, if you’ve ever paid attention to Japanese makeup trends – I very coincidentally have been doing so over the last week whilst researching for an *uhem uhem* upcoming vacay, don’t tell Yoyo – you’d know that applying makeup in the under-eye region, just above the cheekbone is a major thing there. Contour? Pssh. The Harajuku scene goes further into bright pinks and glitter territory. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Which brings us back to Dior. Is this a look more suited for parties and strolling down Harajuku, possibly Ginza? Sure. Are we convinced to try it on a regular day anyway? Why the heck not? We’ve already done glitter lips. Consider us sold. To create the rest of the look, Dior’s Peter Philips used the Diorskin Forever & Ever Primer and Cushion Foundation (which we talked about here), with the Nude Air Luminiser and Blush in 756 and 876 giving the glow and subtle flush. Diorshow Mono in 826 was used on the upper lids and Khol in 529 in the inner lower lid. No mascara was used at all. Finally, the Dior Addict Lip Scrub on the lips – one of our swear-by products, I SWEAR – and a touch of the new Lacquer Stick in 550 Tease.
