With “a sense of fluidity, clarity and appeasement” in mind, Dior Creative and Image Director Peter Philips created a soft and angelic look to balance the graphic elements in the Dior Spring 2015 Couture collection.
At Atelier Versace Spring 2015 Couture, makeup artist Pat Mcgrath took the classic Versace eye and kicked it up a notch. Eyes were rimmed in shades of black and cobalt blue and winged out with matching overdrawn creases. The end result? A bold yet strikingly beautiful look that popped against the clean skin and peachy nude lips.
In the midst of this cold cold winter, the Chanel Spring 2015 Couture show brings us a refreshing breath of Spring. Washes of gray shadow were painted onto models’ lids and brows and contrasted with a pop of white liner on the lower rim of the eyes and bright red lips – all tucked behind a veil of black netting for added glamour.
NARS Spring 2015 Collection is the second act to “The Portraits by The Artist”, featuring Tilda Swinton and a selection of nude colors. Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look beings with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base sets the stage for burnished neutrals with lucid depth. Lips are undone in tan pigments topped with a whisper of opalescent gloss.
Remember those super cool Dior Velvet Eyes Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches that first launched in Fall 2011? Now for Spring 2015, we are getting a pastel version of it. Created by Dior Creative and Image Director for Beauty Peter Philips, the Dior Pastel Eyes Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches are made out of satin for a neoprene effect and come in the cutest pistachio, butter yellow, rose and peach colors. But the best part? No fading or smearing guaranteed!
The first of the four campaigns shot by François Nars featuring British actress Tilda Swinton, NARS Eye-Opening Act Collection delivers captivating range and dimension for the eyes. The new Matte Velvet Shadow stick intensifies, while warm and cool eyeshadow palettes excite new depth for endless eye looks. The Illuminating Multiple brings light to shadow for eyes, lips and cheeks. The multi-purpose glow stick heightens the scene at every twist with a new light-reflecting formula of sheer brilliance.
