Dior Skincare 

Conceived as a sensory and emotional immersion into the world of Dior skincare, the Instagram account @DiorSkincare was launched September 5th.

True to the spirit of the founding couturier who sought to make women “not only more beautiful, but happier, too,” the @DiorSkincare Instagram account reveals the natural beauty of each by sharing the House’s expertise and knowledge. Through its posts, this virtual window will unveil the formulas behind the skincare products and the savoir-faire of the experts who develop them. It will also uncover the places essential to the birth of these creations, such as the Hélios research center or the House’s gardens, prized natural settings from which Dior science draws its unique resources.

Because sharing is at the heart of Dior skincare, the House will deliver valuable advice adapted to the seasons: beauty tutorials, professional techniques to adopt, testimonials, and so on. Interviews will also be conducted with both the researchers and the makers, experts who distill the power of flowers into serums and highly-effective products. Dior will also provide an opportunity for women to share their personal experiences. Lastly, this page will reveal the behind the scenes of skincare events, inviting us to discover these highlights through live videos and exclusive content.

A SPECTRUM OF RED

Peter Philips explores the universe of Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge in seven beauty looks. Working with the lipstick’s ultra-pigmented hues and semi-matte finish, the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup reveals its possibilities from every angle.

“Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge re-imagines both the experience of wearing lipstick and the expression of red,” explains Peter Philips. Combined with the Dior Rouge Ink Lip Liner pen, this new addition offers a bold, elegant or graphic beauty look, playing on ultra-saturated colors and surface effects.

For these creations, the shades 111 Ultra Night 47, a deep black, and 000 Ultra Light 47, a pure white, featured strongly. Depending on the desired result, the color is intensified with the first or softened with the second. With deep or more natural shades, Peter Philips expresses a new art of color.

DECLARATION IN RED 

As worn by Natalie Portman, the Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge shades take on a whole new dimension. In four short films paying tribute to the color red, they reveal their subtle and strong tonalities. The focus here is on 999 Ultra Dior, an iconic and singular red, an ode to femininity itself.

Revisited by Peter Philips with an inexhaustible creativity, the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, red 999 is one of the iconic colors developed by Christian Dior in the early 1950s. Having become a House signature and, more, one of its identifying codes, it testifies to the passionate and uncompromising love the couturier had for red. “Very invigorating and flattering, it's the color of life. I love red. In my opinion, it suits almost all complexions and can also be worn at any time,” he observed in his Little Dictionary of Fashion.
