Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture – Beauty Report
Raf Simmons said it himself, “a shift is happening.” The truth in this statement could be seen in his anomalous sense of color in his clothing as well as the makeup look that complimented the collection. Pat McGrath created an image of “restrained contemporary elegance” in comparison to the elaborate images of seasons past. Couleur Ultra Smooth high impact shadow in silver smoothed on lids lined with bold colors in white, blue, green, pink and yellow intensified the vivid palette as well as the choker collars of massed clusters of single-color gemstones created by Stephen Jones.
For a flawless complexion, Diorskin Forever was carefully blended across the face to formulate soft, glowing skin. A mixture of Diorific Dolce Vita, red fluorescent, and pink pigments bloomed into scarlet lips mimicking the blossoms that adorned the runway entrance. A simple, center part and sleek strands concluded this grand crescendo of the highly anticipated collection- a new beginning into a brighter future of Christian Dior.
