Dior Haute Couture Spring Summer 2023 accentuated the eyes with a subtle smoky look: “I highlighted the eyes with a combination of black shadows blended with silver, in a transparent way. It is a slightly blurred, unpolished smoky eye, which plays on light effects and provides an element of mystery,” says Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior makeup.
“I created a smoky eye by favouring transparency and luminosity. To do so, I used the slate grey and silver shades … which I applied on the upper eyelid, blending out towards the temples. I opened the eye up by also highlighting the lash line of the lower eyelid with the same eyeshadows. The result was a simultaneously dark yet bright look that was a bit blurred, and not too polished.”
“I prepped the skin…by first applying the micro-huile de rose advanced serum, then the crème texture essentielle followed by the micro-serum de rose yeux advanced for the eye area. Next I applied Dior forever glow veil primer for radiance. Lastly, I used the Dior forever skin glow foundation which lightly evens out the complexion, and then I applied Dior forever skin correct for touch-ups.”
Lips looked natural in a range of nude shades chosen to suit the skin tone of each model.
Hair was styled in a decidedly roaring twenties fashion, with baby hairs on the temples and cheeks as a unifying theme. Hair was also plaited to form very twenties-style waves creating movement across the entire head. Some models had plaits wrapped in coils at the top of the forehead, then the plaits were gathered and fastened flat at the nape of the neck.
