This week’s exclusive newsletter subscriber giveaway: Dior 5 Couleurs in Victoire
Of all the Dior 5-Couleur Couture Colours and Effects Eyeshadow Palettes that I’ve given away over the years, I think this is my favourite. It’s a classic palette that pairs a regal purple, warm brown, a pink champagne and an ivory shadow with a violet accent that has just a hint of brown undertone. It is both fashionable and wearable.
What is impressive about all these Dior palettes is that Peter Philips tries them on a wide range of skintones and eye colours to make sure they work for almost everyone. I was interviewing a makeup scientist recently who told me that every single colour they create is worked and reworked until is flatters most skin tones. A pink, for example, that was difficult to pull off years ago has been reformulated to be much more flattering. So don’t be afraid to try some colours outside your comfort zone. They may surprise you.
Couturier Christian Dior was known for his mastery of colour. His dress shades the complementary makeup flattered his clientele from around the world.
The Giveaway: I gave away a Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Victorie to one lucky newsletter subscriber. To enter, I asked readers to tell me in a blog post comment if they would wear these shades. Marcia F told us and we drew her name from all entries. Congrats Marcia!
