Peter Philips, the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, celebrates a color-loaded spring season by revisiting the “gradient makeup” trend in the Colour Gradation collection, embodied by the model Lindsey Wixson, the House's newest beauty looks ambassador.
Discover the two healthy shades Rising Pink 002 and Radiant Nude 001 of Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation from the Spring Collection 2017.
The principle of “gradient makeup”? Clashing colors and fading shades to allow for the boldest of looks. It's a trend that Peter Philips reinvents according to the art of color that has always been the Dior makeup signature. The lips are worked up in different shades of pink to evoke a bee-stung mouth, the eyelids exhibit a spectrum that's alternately soft and electric, a tie-dye effect sets cheekbones alive. The Colour Gradation look offers the freedom of total experimentation, from subtly faded shades that melt into the skin’s natural tone, to the most out-there effects.
In a look that gives color pride of place, voluptuous lips illuminate the face. To achieve a subtly sophisticated effect, in which the pigments seem to be one with the shade of the lips, Peter Philips has devised a lipstick 2.0: Rouge Gradient. Using its double foam tip, first apply the lightest shade as a base, before applying a more intense touch to the center of the lips.
The layering creates a melting gradation with a powdered matte finish, which can be adjusted according to mood and desire, and which is achieved with one of the three available versions, Pink, Red or Purple. Eyes are also ultra-pigmented thanks to the Colour Gradation palette. Available in Blue Gradation or Coral Gradation, it comes with a motif reminiscent of the pleats with which Christian Dior liked to give his dresses movement, just as the gradation of the shades gives life to color.
