Super feminine chic ruled the runway at the Dior Resort 2014 show.

Pink lips, porcelain skin and geometric pale-white eyeshadow took centre stage and the overall result was a visual feast.


To emulate the bright, matte raspberry pink that graced the supermodels’ lips, you’ll need to look for a richly pigmented and dense colour. Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage is a good option. It’s super rich and long lasting too.

Light shadow is key in achieving this look. Illuminate your peepers with a shimmering light grey or pale, light blue eyeshadow and blend with a pale-white hue. Look for an eyeshadow palette that incorporates blendable colours, such as Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Trio in Impeccable Greys. At Dior the models’ eyeshadow was geometric inspired so if you fancy giving that a try, simply use a white liner to create a winged effect in the outer corners of the eye. Shu Uemura Eye Light Pencil is a nifty eyeliner which gives you two finishes; matte white and pearl white, for a brightened, lightened and lifted look.

Forget summer bronze, skin was porcelain perfect at Dior so ditch the fake tan and opt for a fresh and natural foundation, such as Bobbi Brown Long Wear Foundation, with a dash of highlighter beneath the eyes and above the cheekbones.

Keep it simple and tie back your locks in a low-key ballerina bun with an on-trend centre parting. – COVER MEDIA
