Silver Dust

Metallic Blue

Frosted Beige

Ready to Beige

Dior comes as one of the first items when you are a makeup junkie.Be it an eyeshadow or a lipgloss, Dior has colours for everybody.
The Dior palette is full of iridescent colours.Actually you feel as if you've metamorphosed into a butterfly when you use Dior products because of the shine and radiance they impart.
The Dior line was created by world's most renowned makeup artist Serge Lutens in the 60s and it hasn't lessened its aura till today.Today celebrity makeup artist Pati Dubroff,famous for her avante garde Oscar looks under the guidance of Mr.John Galliano designs the seasonal collections.

Dior doesn't follow trends but makes them.

While browsing through their one of the latest collections I came across some fantastic shades of Dior 1 couleur mono eyeshadows.They were these fascinating dreamy colours not seen in any brand before.The sparkly texture,smooth velvety feel and stay-put capacity of these eyeshadows overwhelmed me.
Liked the above pictured colours a lot.
I have some looks with the above shades that are ideal for the coming Fall 2007...

Look No.1

Blend an eyeshadow base on the eyelids for the eyeshadow to smoothly glide on.
Apply with a large powder brush some loose powder under the eyes.This loose powder gathers all the eyeshadow dust and can be removed very easily with creating any marks on the face.
Now start with the Silver dust eyesahdow which is a silvery shimmery gunmetal grey colour.Apply in the crease and outer corners of the upper lid with a large eyshadow brush to create a lovely crease and define the eye contours.Now with a small blender brush apply the same eyeshadow on the outer third of the lower lid and smoke it outwards.
Now apply Metallic blue which is a typical shimmery royal blue over the entire eyelid starting from the lash line uupwards till the crease.Apply with a large eyeshadow brush the Frosted beige, a taupe mauve shimmer into the inner corners and the crease and blend the three colours to give you a sophisticated vintage hollywood look.With an angular blender brush apply the royal blue in the inner two thirds of the lower lid and smude it to give a smokey look.
Highlight the browbone with Ready to go Beige,a shimmery highlighting beige colour.Line the inner rims of the eyes with Dior's crayon eyeliner.Then apply false lashes and blend and curl them with the true lashes using an eyelash curler.Apply two coats of Dior Blackout mascara.
Balance the face with a Diorshow powder in Girly pink or Spotlight peach powder just enough to add definition and shimmer on the cheeks.End up with a shimmery baby pink lipgloss like Diorshow Gloss show in Anja Pink over primed lips for some understated effect.

This look works best on fair ladies with big beautiful eyes but I won't discriminate.

Look 2

For a softer innocent look apply the Frosted Beige over the crease and outer corners.Blend in the Ready-to-beige all over the lid.Leave the brow bones bare.Line the eyes with a dark chocolate brown Dior crayon liner pencil and apply several coats of Diorshow mascara in Brown.Apply a soft apricot or a natural blush.Apply gloss of any shade right from muted ones to the most vibrant ones.

You can create your own looks with these eyeshadows.

Do share with the readers any more looks you have concocted.....
