How to shop Dior’s Spring Collection

One of the standout features to the relaunch of Dior’s 5-Couleurs eyeshadow palettes last fall was the unexpected colour combinations. Unlike other luxe brands who can be predictable in their shadow suggestions, Dior has pushed the boundaries with some fresh colour pairings. The Victoire palette included a deep eggplant, chestnut brown, ivory and delicate China pink – with a browned violet accent shade.

For Spring 2015, the French luxury house pairs half-tones and bright shades with glimmering pastels and contrasting colour blocks. Vibrant lilac takes center stage along with sparkling poppy and invigorating green – one of the biggest colour trends for the season.

Your first inclination may be to jump at the Kingdom of Colours – Spring Colour Palette containing 10 colours for eyes, lips and cheeks. But I recommend starting with the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow in #466 House of Greens. These khaki greens accented with silver grey and soft pink are infinitely wearable and will update your look in one step. Those with green or hazel eyes will particularly like the effect of these shades. The same palette in House of Pinks will flatter those with blue eyes. Pink shadow was an expected hit on fall runways and the trend continues for spring.

Next, consider the new Diorshow Khols in five shades. The silver in particular will become a must-have. Use a tiny amount on the inner eye area to instantly brighten your eyes. It’s a trick that pro artists use on red carpets and catwalks.

Diorshow Khol retractable liner can create fine or broad lines. It can therefore be used all over the eyelid as a base, adding intensity to eyeshadow in the same was as the pros, or to obtain a perfect smoky eye in a single sweep.

A hint of blush will brighten any complexion and this new peachy shade will make you look more rested and healthy. I particularly like that the powder is stamped with Mr. Dior’s personal coat of arms, a tribute to the eighteenth century that the couturier so admired. There is a darker shade called Cherry Glory that will work well on darker skintones.

You’ll notice that models wore nude lip colours about 80% of the time on Spring runways. Dior Addict Gloss in #154 Fastes is the perfect counterbalance to the pastel eyeshadow shades. I like that there is a darker shade in Mylord that will work on more skintones. There is a new Rouge Baume in a nude colour and one in a bright for early summer.

You’ll notice that fashion houses have played down the colour and effects on nails for spring. Dior has a soft pink in Lady and a peachy hue called Majesty. Tasteful and perfect for daytime.

Once you’ve reviewed the above, then take a look at the Spring Collector Palette. It’s a great collector piece for aspiring and accomplished makeup artists. There’s almond green, deep purple, silver and black shadows; a coral blush; and a trio of lip colours in pink, iridescent pearl and tulip.

The impulse buy is the Blossoming Top Coat in a delicate mauve and an orchid pink – totally for fun.
