Natural look by Peter Philips for Dior AW 18/19


Creative and image director for Dior Peter Philips created a natural make-up look using products almost exclusively from the Dior backstage line for AW 18/19 haute couture collection, by Maria Grazia Chiuri.

“Dior backstage is a line for which I redesigned all the key items in the make-up bag. With 40 shades of Dior backstage face and body foundation, i’ve got 16 levels of intensity across 6 skin tones, so that I can adapt it to every complexion precisely.”


“Eyes were given a hint of emphasis with Dior backstage eye palette n° 001 warm neutrals. For light skin tones Iused the softest shades – shimmer pink and matte pink – which subtly ‘open’ the eyes. On darker skin tones I used ombré sculpting powder, shimmer purple and matte plum. Eyebrows were discreet, but defined and shaped with Diorshow brow styler and Dior backstage brow palette.”


“Dior backstage lip palette n°001 universal neutrals was used on lips. Depending on skin tone I chose either gloss pink, gloss beige, or gloss blush for discreet and transparent plump lips.”
