For this season in full colour, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, celebrates the gradient makeup trend with COLOUR GRADATION. This intuitive yet precise technique works vivid shades tone on tone for eyes emboldened with a clash of colour, lips bitten with a gradation of electric pinks and cheeks aglow with a radiant tie-dye…
With bright, sunny days on their way, colour Gradation gives women the freedom to use pigments on the skin or create more avant-garde gradation effects. A unique colour experience for the most vibrant right of spring.
A voluptuous mouth with a diffused line lights up the face. Pigments seamlessly blend with the colour of the lips.
Give lips the thrill of a ROUGE BRILLANT with a barely there feel of a bright gloss finish and perfectly adjusted colour, available in effervescent pink or rosewood imbued with a timeless charm.
First, use a Dior Liner – go for a deeper shade than your lip colour. To create the radiant effect use your lip brush to blend the look inwards fading as it reaches the centre. Next, layer on your lipstick using the same technique. If you want a more dramatic gradient look, layer on a second Rouge Dior in a brighter or lighter colour only in the centre.
