Natural hair and a nude-effect complexion from which a sensuous mouth bursts forth. For the spring-summer 2014 haute couture show, the Dior make-up artists came up with a beauty look in the spirit of the clothes created by Raf Simons, a look of lightness and femininity.
She's a young woman in bloom, with a naturally and unrelentingly feminine beauty. Brimming with confidence in the meticulously-worked silk of her haute couture dress, she sports a beauty look that reflects it: a subtle mixture of insouciance and sophistication. Preferring simplicity to overdone styles, she wears her hair falling loosely on her shoulders. Her nails have been delicately highlighted with a subtle pink varnish.
On her face that same relaxed elegance can be found. The clean and fresh complexion is expressed through a bare skin effect. Set off with a small slick of mascara, eyes are accented with a bronze eyeshadow to enhance the eyelids' natural skin tone. And in the middle of this Nude face, it's the mouth that's the focus: full and sensual, lips are painted a glamorous and seductive bright red, popping like a burst of cannon fire - a "Trafalgar blast ", as Christian Dior called the red dresses that caused a sensation in each one of his fashion shows. And in a neat case of happenstance, it's precisely the Rouge Dior Trafalgar and the shade 999, inspired by the very first lipstick the couturier created, that the models are wearing. Two signature shades that bring the face to life and succeed in showcasing the natural sensuality of the Dior woman.
