Dior’s Glowing Gardens “After women, flowers are the most divine creations,” Christian Dior is famous for saying. In fact, he loved flowers so much he’d spend much of his free time in his gardens in the seaside town of Granville.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup has used this fact as inspiration for Dior’s limited edition spring makeup collection on counters now. The colours and products are meant to create both graphic and natural looks that are radiant, luminous and bright.

I’m particularly impressed with the Diorshow Colour and Contour Eyeshadow & Eyeliner Duos. These multi-tasking products save both time and effort when creating a graphic eye look. You just use them as you would a pen. Add a soft colour underlined by a graphic stroke. One side of the pen features a luminous, silky and long-wearing eyeshadow while the other side boasts an easy glide, pigment-rich long-wearing eyeliner.
