Dior have released their latest make up collection, the Mystic Metallics Fall 2013 Collection inspired by Monsieur Dior’s lucky charm the Star that he used to carry around in his pocket. A star studded destiny, Monsieur Dior believed in fate; “My destiny is walking towards me” he said back in 1946 as he stood on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, hesitating whether to give up his career as a fashion illustrator to design his own line, where the couturier tripped over a metallic star pierced with a hole. The following day he decided to create his own House and from then on always carried his lucky charm in his pocket.
“The colour harmonies that I have created for this look reflect the mysterious colours of the galaxy. Like a journey form the earth to the moon.” Tyen, Dior Makeup Creative Director
Monsieur Dior’s lucky charm shines over the 2013 Autumn Collection and decorates the mythical five colours palette as the eye shadows shimmer with metallic shades and reflections, shrouded in mystery, the eyes have never been so magnetic. The two colour harmonies in the 5 Couleurs Palette exist in shades of violet and silver (864 Constellation) or blue-greens and browns (384 Bonne Etoile) (RRP$103).
The Diorshow Fusion Mono is a blend of genres. Shimmering highlights recreates the depth and contrast of a catwalk look. The rounded, gel-mousse texture weightlessly illuminates the eye with multi-faceted, long lasting colour. The Mirror Shine Eyeshadows come in six colours; 001 Lune, 081 Aventure, 281 Cosmos, 381 Millenium, 661 Meteore and 881 Hypnotique (RRP$50).
Dior has reinvented the mythical 3 Couleurs Smoky in sapphire blue and the 3 Couleurs Glow (RRP$75) in a trio of silvers and black. Whether strong or transparent, eyes become the object of all desires, further emphasized by a line of Diorliner in prune (RRP$65). Adding to the mystery of the eyes we see the high definition brow gel (RRP$44) that structures the face, emphasizing its proportions. This translucent gel with its brush-applicator adds texture and shine. Simply brush the brows from bottom to top for a tamed yet highly natural finish. And Diorshow Blackout (RRP$52) is the finishing touch to the Mystic Metallics look, the mascara, in its new tube and with an XL brush, reveals dramatic volume and the power of black kohl for catwalk lashes that are intense and mysterious.
Try these two application techniques for two different effects:
- SOFT FUSION: applied with fingertips, the eye shadow blends into the skin to create a light veil of colour and a subtly shimmering result.
- BOLD FUSION: applied using the smudging applicator, the finish is intensified to reveal pure and extreme colour.
- ADVICE FROM THE PROS: lightly wet the eye shadow for an extreme metallic effect with a dramatic lamé finish.
Dior has revisted its emblematic blush with the release of DIORBLUSH (RRP$72) in a thinner case containing a bevelled brush, redesigned and stamped with the House logo. A new formula gives maximum expression to pigments. This micronized powder goes on as a veil of pure, evanescent, weightless colour.
- Fusion: apply with the flat of the brush, to fuse colour with the skin. Perfect for a healthy look.
- Sculpting: apply with the bevelled edge of the brush for professional “contouring” to shade temples, redefine face shape and define cheekbones.
Diorblush is available in 13 COLOURS divided into: four colour spectrums of Pink, Red, Coral and Nude in three finishes of Iridescent, Matte and Satin.
The new Dior manicure “Mystic Magnetics” (RRP$44) creates surprise with a shadowy blue lacquer which, when you use the specialised magnet, reveals a secret motif. The formula is enriched with metallic particles that react to the contact of a magnet. Make sure you use the magnet on each nail as soon as you have painted it otherwise it won’t work. The Dior Vernis (RRP$39) also comes in two colours; silvery pink (382 Destin) and brocade prune (992 Galaxie).
