For the Dior Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture collection, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, has created a luminous make-up, a face with the perfect glow.

“I delved into the mysterious atmosphere and the play on seduction in this collection, which presents the hide/reveal aspect of a masked ball. The sophistication of Stephen Jones’ creations and the masks on some of the looks were also a source of inspiration for creating a poetic gaze.”
Peter Philips adds: “This is a young woman with a modernised pre-Raphaelite beauty. It was essential to emphasise her soft luminosity and sensuality.”
The complexion is light and pure. Peter 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, so I applied Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer as the base, then Dior Forever Perfect Cushion foundation. Next I perked up the cheeks with a light rosy cloud of Diorblush n°756 and 876.
Lastly, I applied touches of Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer n°001 to obtain a pearly light at strategic points: the brow bone, the bridge of the nose, the Cupid’s bow.”
Peter Philips stresses that “the eyes are nude with no mascara and pale eyelids unified with Diorshow Mono n°317 “Metaphore” and a line of Diorshow Khôl n°529 beige. A unified base to bring out the play on starry glitter.”
He adds: “I created several variations to personalise each girl. The glitter was applied in a “Stardust” shower on the cheekbones swept up towards the temples. But I also chose the metallic purity of a single, bigger, more ‘rebel attitude’ star placed on the inner corner of each eye or at the centre of the lower lid.
“Lips were smoothed with the new Lip Sugar Scrub, then lightly enhanced with Dior Addict Lacquer Stick n°550 “Tease”, which I dab in the middle of the lower lip. When you keep application light, its creamy texture and discreet shine give the lips a plumped look. Lips are sensual but keep a very natural effect.”
Nails stayed discreet with Diorlisse Abricot as a base, then Gel Coat.
Styled by Guido Palau, hair was done in the style of pre-Raphaelite beauties. Wavy and long, hair was worn either loose or tied back.
Dior Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture Collection is truly whimsical and dream-like.
