Dior Ready to Wear Spring-Summer 2018 Collection Show took place on Tuesday September 26th, 2017 at the Musée Rodin, Paris 7e. The Creative and Image Director for Dior, Peter Philips, created a natural make-up look focusing on the eyes.


“Maria Grazia Chiurl’s collection pays tribute to Niki de Saint-Phalle, who had close ties to the House of Dior in the 1960s-70s. The radiant beauty of this great artist inspired a fresh and modern make-up look. “I wanted, in particular, to accentuate the eyes, in a very spontaneous way, giving the impression of a young girls who had applied her own make-up.”




“The eyes are very expressive here” States Peter Philips. “I wanted to give them a slight sixties feel without going for a completely retro effect. I chose to really load the eyelashes while leaving them at a natural length. First I applied a coat of DIORSHOW MAXIMIZER 3D, followed by 5 or 6 generous coats of black DIORSHOW PUMP ’N’ Volume.


These very thick lashes, top and bottom are ultra made-up, but they’re not aiming for a perfect result. Some of the are clumped together, like when a young girls puts her make-up on a bit too quickly.” He adds: “Top emphasize the youthful aspect, I also drew a line of Diorshow Khol Black Khol 099 on the waterline of the lower eyelid and slightly accentuated eyebrows with Diorshow Bold Brow and Diorshow Brow Styler.”



Peter Philips explains: “ The complexion looks even and fresh, and is neither too shiny nor too powdered. I obtained this balance by starting with Diorskin Forever & Ever wear primer. New I applied the new Dior Forever Undercover Foundation which provides adjustable cover while looking very natural. Its new water-based texture means I can adjust the make-up to each skin type.


I continued with a few corrective touches of Deerskin Undercover Concealer, and lastly I ratified everything with a very light veil of Deerskin Forever & ever Control Loose powder.



“Lips go a natural look, prepared with Lips Sugar Scrub then barely heightened with on of the 4 Dior Lip Glow Shades that best matched the model’s skin tone”


Nails were natural.


Styled by Guido Palau, hair was given a sixties twist. Section were drawn back from the forehead and held in place at the back of the head with two hair slides. The hair then left loose and wavy.
