Backstage Beauty: Dior Haute Couture AW 16/17

Peter Philips applied the concept of haute couture to the makeup he created for the Dior runway.¬†“I wanted to create, for more than forty¬†looks, a free variation on eyeliner. It was¬†a challenge to customize the look each¬†time in an unusual and audacious way,¬†creating make-up that was made-to-measure, just like Haute Couture is,” Philips says. The creative director of Dior Make-up adapted striking graphic eyeliner to each model’s eye shape. Alongside¬†DiorShow¬†Pro-liner Pro Black and Diorshow¬†Artpen Catwalk Black, Philips used bold gold on a handful of model to punctuate the looks: “using Dior Addict Fluid¬†Shadow Phenix, applied with a brush in broad gold colour-blocking,¬†to obtain a dramatic, gold, textured effect.”
