Dior 2008 S/S Cruise Collection Makeup Breakdowns

Models showed off the gorgeous Dior 2008 Cruise Collection with matching bubblegum makeup in NYC this Monday, attracting celebrities like Penelope Cruz, Charlize Theron, Dita Von Teese and more.

To copy the look, go for neon colors in pink, yellow, green, orange and purple on the eyes. Pick an eyeshadow with a satin finish and for maximum intensity, press the eyeshadow onto your eyelid with a finger or a dense brush like MAC’s #239 eyeshadow brush or use a primer like MAC’s Prep + Prime Eye before your apply your eyeshadow. Define your eyes with a liquid liner winged at the corner and apply lots and lots of mascara. Keep the rest of your face as fresh as possible and slick on some lipgloss to finish the look.

For those who are slightly intimidated by all that color, try painting your nails in matching colors like the picture below. Alternatively, draw a thin line along your top lashes in a neon green/turquoise/hot pink color or wear a mascara in bright blue/neon green.
