Dior Skyline Exclusive Prelaunch

Drawing inspiration from the prodigious structure of the Eiffel Tower dominating Paris’ horizon, Dior Make-Up presents Skyline in an exclusive prelaunch at Harrods. Designed by Creative and Image Director, Peter Philips, the new colour collection explores the vast possibilities of using light and shade to architecturally sculpt the face and masterfully shape your features.

Boasting a stunning, geometric lace design as a nod to the Eiffel Tower’s iron structure, the emblematic 5 Couleurs Palette is the perfect starting point for your collection. Available for the upcoming season in two exquisite colour harmonies, opt for the blue and seasonal beiges radiating out from the steel grey of the Parisian Sky, or create a warm eye-opening look with the pink and luminescent brown tones of Capital Of Light. “For daytime, use the warm beiges over the lid and chocolate shades along the lashes,” suggests Dior's International Makeup Artist, Jamie Coombes. “Then for evening, dress it up with the rich plum over the lid, blending outward and take it along the lower lash line.” 

It’s a collection designed to mimic the structural force of architecture, and we’ve fallen for the pieces that make contouring and strobing easier to master than ever before. Armed with the new dual-ended Diorblush Light & Contour, draw shade on the chin, hollows of the cheeks and temples with the matte contouring end, then add instant radiance to the prominent areas of the face with shimmery highlighter side. Budding face sculptors should also look to the magical Flash Luminizer to illuminate eyes and enhance the lip contour with dazzling light and the intense Diorshow Brow Chalk for well-defined, structured brows.

A must for “a figure who aspires to explore every possibility, who likes to play with illusion,” according to Philips, Skyline is not only an ode to Parisian architecture, but to the enduring elegance of the Dior woman. "This is one of the most exciting collections I have ever had the pleasure of working with," says Coombes, "It is full of so many fabulous textures and rich autumnal hues. There is something for everyone." And with sophisticated lip colours and elegant chocolate-toned nail lacquers completing the range,  Skyline has us more than a little excited about new season beauty too.

"Be bold, be brave and own it! For the eyes, I loved Peter Philip’s Look which we recreated at the Blenheim Palace Cruise Show using the 5 Couleurs palette in Parisian Sky for a warm rich chocolate shadow. Firstly, prime the lid with Fix It concealer then press the eye shadow over the lid using the sponge tip applicator, keeping it within the socket line. Follow by blending the shadow edge with an eye shadow brush lightly to disperse the harsh line. If desired, use the shadow on the brush along the lower lash line for more definition and finish with Diorshow Maximizer 3D and Diorshow Mascara for show stopping lashes."
