Last night in New York City, Christian Dior put on a fashion show to unveil John Galliano's 2008 ready-to-wear cruise collection. The look of the show was very 1960s mod, reminiscent of the looks we saw on the runways for fall and of Sienna Miller in Factory Girl.
The clothing was full of color, and the hair was bouffant and dramatic. Stylist Orlando Pita either created beehives or teased hair at the crown and placed a thick headband high on the forehead. Renowned makeup artist Pat McGrath also created magnificent mod looks on all of the models.
For photos and instructions on how to create this look at home with Dior makeup,
- Face: Yes, these models have great skin, but that's also part of this look. For a flawless face, begin by using Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen to conceal dark circles and blemishes, then apply DiorSkin AirFlash Spray Foundation to create a beautiful semi-matte canvas.
- Cheeks: All of these girls have a teensy bit of tan enhanced with a slight pink flush on their cheeks. Perhaps they were using Dior Bronze Sunshine Blush in Sunrise Party 001. Take a blush brush, swirl it across all four colors, and sweep the blush starting at the apples of your cheeks and working your way out toward your hairline.
- Eyes:Since this looks is all about mod, the eyes and lips and the central points of focus. This new and very cool Dior Logo Palette is all that you are going to need! Start by applying the white shadow all over your lid. Next, choose either the pink or the purple and apply it on your lid stopping before the crease. Take the rust color and apply just a little bit for definition in the crease.
Next, heavily line your eyes by wetting the black shadow and drawing a line that will run from the inner corner of your eyelash line and extend out to create wings. This is going to be a heavy line, so be prepared to go over it a few times until you reach your desired length. Also, remember that the line gets increasingly thicker as you work your way outward. Then, line your lower lids and concentrate the thickness toward the outer corners as well.
Once you are finished with the black, take the white shadow and run it along the rims of your lower lashes to really make your eyes pop! Finish with two coats of the new Diorshow Black Out Mascara and an extra-long set of false lashes.
- Lips: Line your lips with a pale pink liner, such as Dior Lipliner Pencil in Heather Rose, then fill in your lips completely. Next, apply a light layer of sheer nude/pink lipstick, such as Dior Addict Ultra Shine Sheer Lipcolor in Shiniest Beige, all over the lips. Lastly, take a tissue and blot lips once for a more matte finish. Do not use lip gloss for this look.
