Peter Philips, the creative and image director for Dior makeup (you must follow him on Snapchat, he’s a blast to watch yet incredibly professional as you’d imagine) based the Skyline collection around the Parisan architecture. My father was an Architect, so I have fond memories of being his little helper when I was a kid, going around to job sites with him on occasion. So, as you see in the embossing on the eyeshadow palettes, they imitate what you would see on the Eiffel Tower, in Paris. Gorgeous.
It’s been ages since I’ve done a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve a ‘look of the day’. This time, I’ve created a radiant, natural look with the Dior Skyline Collection that launched August 1, 2016. The products are now available in stores and online.
1. Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream | Apply an eye cream under the eyes to add extra moisture to help concealer not settle into fine lines and provide a perfect canvas for application.
2. philosophy hope in a jar | My favourite moisturizer, it makes my skin look dewy, and healthy looking. Apply a generous amount to the face, and don’t forget the neck!
3. Diorskin Forever Foundation | Use your favourite foundation to create a natural, or full-coverage look to your face. I mixed the shades 10, and 30 together to create a shade to suit my skintone.
4. Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) Green | If you have red undertones like myself, twist up the green shade of the Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) and pop it on any places you feel that need to be neutralized. Read more about Fix-It Colour’s on my previous blog post.
5. Fix-It Colour (2-in-1 Prime and Conceal) Yellow | Dark under eyes? Use the yellow corrector to brighten up any dark circles. Read more about Fix-It Colour’s on my previous blog post.
6. Cle de Peau concealer | To cover up any yellow tones you put down under the eyes, lightly apply a creamy concealer and dab to blend in the colour with your ring finger.
One of Dior’s latest backstage items is the new multipurpose colour concealer packaged in the same way as their Fix-It for good reason, they play a similar role as they are both for priming, but added in a colour correcting aspect to it and you have targeted shades to create an even base/canvas for any redness/darkness or blemishes you may have.
Notice the caps on the colour-correctors correspond to which shade is in the tube? Much easier to grab, whenever you want to apply one quickly. There’s four shades for all your targeted needs (I don’t have the blue shade).
See them in use, after the jump!
