DIOR | 'Mystic Metallics' Fall MakeUp Collection 2013





Today, the House of DIOR continues to find inspirations in the designer's own superstitions: while Raf Simons designs iridescent taffeta gowns with crystal flints, this autum's make-up collection 'Mystic Metallics' adorns the face with magically glimmering colours. This autumn, Tyen, Creator of Colours for DIOR makeup, presents his version of the Dior woman sporting subtle, changing shades, and a touch of magic.







A LUCKY STAR

"Chance always steps in to help people who truly desire something", wrote Christian Dior in his memoirs. Chance indeed stepped in for him when one day in April 1946 he tripped over a metal 5-pointed star, while walking in the street. At the time, he was considering giving up his career as a fashion designer and saw the star as a sign of destiny: he agreed to meet Mr. Boussac, the king of cotton, and went on to open his house of couture.

SHADOWS AND LIGHT

A small dot of colour, a concentration of glints, shine and contrasts. Diorshow Fusion Mono is revolutionising make-up: its gel-foam texture brightens the eyes with a faceted shade, and long-lasting radiance. Applied using the fingertips, the eyeshadow delivers a subtly sparkling effect, but its colour intensifies if it is applied to the skin using a blending brush. The eyes are dressed in mystery. Etoile, Hypnotique, Aventure, Chimère or Météore... From dense black to deep purple, from midnight blue to flamboyant amber, these eyeshadows are enchanted with magic.





ROSY CHEEKS

The Diorblush line is being overhauled and extended: its case is more slender, and reveals a new shape, presenting the coloured powder with a new texture that leaves a veil of pure colour on the skin. Cheeks flush with pleasure when the colour pigments are applied. From Coral Cruise to New Red, the thirteen shades add a hint of joy to the appearance

GLIMMERING GLINTS 

Iridescent eyeshadow, 5-colour make-up palette with metallic shimmers, magnetic nail lacquer and passion-coloured lipstick ... This autumn, see the Dior woman through the eyes of Tyen, Creator of Colours for Dior make-up, as he adorns her with subtle, changing shades, and a touch of magic. "The harmonies that I have created for this look reflect the mysterious colours of the galaxy. A journey from the Earth to the moon", explains Tyen. On this occasion, the 5-colour palette is given a new look with mauve and silver (864 Constellation), blue-green and brown (384 Bonne Etoile), and reveals eyeshadows sculpted with Christian Dior's lucky star. From greyish pink to plum, lacquers have eternal names (Destin, Galaxie) and for the very first time, reveal a magnetic sheen which glimmers and changes in the presence of a magnet. Lips are illuminated with bewitching colours of Dior Addict Extreme and Dior Addict Gloss, adorning smiles with delicious and mysterious radiance, from precious pink to dramatic purple.

'This season, as Piccioli explained in a collection preview, the designers had been looking at the “calm and serene portraits of women,” by the Flemish Old Masters (Vermeer in particular) and their reinterpretation by such contemporary artists as Hendrik Kerstens. “We wanted to catch the same spirit of private sensuality,” he explained, “something very spiritual and poetic women as new Madonnas.”'
