Dior Cruise Collection 2015 Preview!

Dior Presents Cruise Collection 2015 Makeup!

For the first time ever, Peter Philips has created and styled the make-up for the Dior Cruise Collection runway show.

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up has, for the first time, worked with Raf Simons on the Dior Cruise 2015 runway show.

He has created make-up in total symbiosis with the collection, in harmony with the looks, which are colorful with splashes of black. “I wanted to create make-up that was both light and sophisticated,” emphasizes Philips, “in keeping with the Cruise spirit, fluid clothing and the summery atmosphere. The common theme in this collection is in fact the color black, which links all the looks together. Raf Simons and I wanted the make-up to be graphic and elegant, to accentuate both the beauty of the silhouettes, and this omnipresent black color.”

Peter Philips emphasizes that “the eyes are the focal point of this make-up look thanks to the black eyeliner drawn straight across the upper eyelid using the new Dior It-Line Eye-Liner in black (Summer 2014). The same eyeliner is also drawn across the outer half of the eyelid, making the eyes look bigger and adding sophistication. I also chose to shade the eyelids with the new Bar 5 Couleurs Palette (Fall 2014), which contains a color scheme of iridescent black, gray, pink and white. Lashes are coated with Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof in black or Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara in black (Summer 2014) and eyebrows are accentuated without looking too heavy, using Diorshow Powder Eyebrow Pencil.”



A semi-matte complexion is obtained using Diorskin Star foundation. “I wanted to create the illusion of a perfect complexion that is both matte and radient,” he explains. “Cheekbones are emphasized with a light sweep of DiorBlush Vibrant Color Powder in My Rose which is also brushed across the chin to frame the face.”


“We chose a discreet and natural lip in a beige tone, which is simply accentuated with Rouge Dior in Trompe-l’Oeil.”


“Hands are also discreet and very natural in Dior Vernis in Muguet, which adds a hint of soft pink to nails.
