Dior Summer 2017: Care And Dare

Eliza Scarborough   |   17 - 06 - 2017

Lips are moisturised with a balm that teams protection with a pop of colour, nails flaunt a next-generation manicure, and intense coppery shades explode with vitality on the lids.


Using the highly-pigmented Dior Addict Lipstick in Soft Pink, coat the lips, giving them a pop of colour whilst moisturising with the infused ultra-concentrated lip care oils. Then define the brow with Dior All-In-Brow 3D to help frame the face and balance the strong lip.

Begin by preparing skin with Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer, together with Diorskin Forever Foundation. Then bathe your complexion in a soft summer glow with Diorskin Nude Air Care & Dare. Apply on facial contours, moving in a C from the temple to the cheek, and then sweep it across eyelids to give an all over healthy look. By putting the same colour on your eyelids as your cheeks, it gives a more natural, sun kissed glow. Complement this pared back look with a coat of Dior Addict Lipstick in Mello Beige, and Dior Vernis in Optic White on the nails.

Dior brings the art of contouring to the eyes with Diorshow Colour and Contour in Shell Bronze, a waterproof shadow-liner duo. Start by using the end which features a shadow with an iridescent finish around the eye and eyelid, followed by sweeping the highly-pigmented liner along the lash line, starting from the corner to accentuate the width of the eye. Finish the look with a coat of Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara across the upper lashes.

Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Serum brings out the natural radiance of sun-kissed skin, illuminating with an iridescent glow. Prepare skin first with Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer, before applying the sculpting and enhancing Luminizer Serum on facial contours, including brows, eyelids, and the bridge of the nose, just anywhere that the sun would catch.

The 5 Couleurs Summer Limited Edition in Focus can make a real impact when the contrasting sunny shade of yellow is used. Using this striking shade, start by sweeping it all the way over eyelid, up to the brow, and into corners of the eye. Then, taking the darkest shade, apply it underneath the eye, and winged out to the side. Now is the time to bulk up the mascara, with Diorshow Maximizer 3D coated on the lashes, before completing with Diorshow Pump ‘N’ Volume Mascara. To complete the look, use Dior Addict Lip Sugar Scrub on the lips to buff and moisturise, followed by Dior Addict Lip Tattoo in Natural Rosewood, for just the right amount of colour.

Nail Art

For a warm shimmering bronze look, start by using the lighter shades from the 5 Couleurs Summer Limited Edition in Focus to highlight the eyelids and under the brows. Then use the mid shades to contour around the eyelid, under the eye, and in the socket, together with Diorshow Colour & Contour in Shell Bronze. Give your nails a couture look by pairing two shades together, starting with the Dior Vernis in Optic White. Layer the Dior Vernis in Coral Crush in a smaller area in the middle of the nail, it helps the vivid colour really pop.
