"To obtain this look I curled the lashes and framed the eyes with a black liner, I circled the eyes completely with a thick dense line of black using the DIORSHOW ON STAGE LINER MATTE BLACK PEN. Then, aligned with the pupil, I drew a vertical line that goes down to create like a Pierrot effect.”

"After that, I smudged any lines that were too sharp, and blurred the edges with CRAYON EYELINER WATERPROOF NOIR TRINIDAD for a more punk and less perfect effect."

"Lastly, I applied a line of DIORSHOW KHÔL BLACK to the upper and lower waterlines so that the eyes were completely ringed in black."

“Lips looked really natural. They were prepped with DIOR LIP SUGAR SCRUB 001 PINK, and then I used DIOR LIP MAXIMIZER in PINK, but I toned the shine down just before the models went onto the catwalk.”

"An ultra-natural complexion created thanks to DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION, whose 40 shades for every skin colour enabled me to adapt it to every complexion. Then, when needed, I used DIORSKIN FOREVER UNDERCOVER CONCEALER for touch-ups."

For Dior‘s latest Haute Couture collection, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, devised a dramatic make-up look that focused primarily on the eyes. “I chose a dark and graphic messy look, with a pattern that blends a punk aesthetic with a dreamy pierrot feel. All the emphasis was on the eyes, which are intriguing, and draw you in.” explains Philips. The complexion, lips, and nails were kept natural to further enhance the darkness of the eyes. The hair was also minimal, with each model sporting hoods that had neutral-coloured net veils with crystals attached to them.
