Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, created for Autumn Winter 2015 an intense and graphic look interpreting a palette of deep autumnal shades. “I wanted to instantly draw attention to the eyes by creating a very strong graphic look. It’s a very controlled, very catwalk look,” Peter Philips emphasizes.
As he explains, “this very dense and very polished look contrasts with a soft, luminous complexion. It’s a combination of a certain, rather feminine subtlety, and clear, distinct lines. This association reflects the spirit of the collection, which lies between the expression of fluid femininity and an accentuated graphic statement.”
Peter Philips gives details of the spectacular look, available in four intense shades. “Eye shadow was applied in a dense block across the upper eyelid in a choice of kaki or plum shades from the Palette 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Exubérante, or, in bronze and brown from the Palette 5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Eclectic.” He adds, “The large half-moon shaped design was done with a pre-dampened sponge applicator for maximum coverage.” Next, “Using the Dior Pro Liner pen, black eye liner was applied to the lash line.” And for the indispensable finishing touch to this hypnotic look, “the upper lashes were curled and coated with two coats of Diorshow Maximiser Lash Plumping Serum then I added 3 coats of Diorshow Pro Black mascara for a “false-lash” effect.”
