Discover the legendary look of the first Dior Fashion Show in 1947:
radical, elegant make-up, a true ode to femininity.
A graphic stroke of liner structures the eye while the mouth,
crafted with a velvet look, is adorned with a sensual, bold red.
Complete your look to the tips of your nails with Dior Vernis shade 999 Red. For easy application and a perfect result, shake well before use, then apply a very thin first layer. The second layer can be thicker for greater intensity and cover. For a perfect finish, apply a layer of Apricot Base Coat under your nail varnish, then finish with Apricot Top Coat for intensified, long-lasting shine.
Create a perfect complexion by applying the Diorskin Forever Liquid Foundation using the Backstage Fluid Foundation Brush Light Coverage. Put some foundation on the back of your hand and take a small quantity using the brush. Apply the make-up from the centre of the face towards the exterior with horizontal movements. Begin by applying make-up to the cheek then the eye area, then finish with the chin and forehead. For greater cover, use the Backstage Fluid Foundation Brush High Coverage and apply the texture with small circular movements from the centre of the face towards the exterior. Emphasise the cheek, forehead and chin areas. Lightly dab the areas requiring additional cover.
Apply Skinflash in one shade lighter than your usual shade to highlight the areas of shadow on the face: Particularly emphasise the eye area, under the eye and in the inner corner as well as the contours of the mouth to define the shape of the lips and make the lipstick stand out.
Complete the complexion routine by applying the Diorskin Forever Compact Foundation using the Backstage Fluid Foundation Brush Light Coverage. Dip the brush in the powder and use a handkerchief to remove the excess before application. Then brush the forehead, chin, cheeks and neck, starting at the centre of the face and working towards the exterior with horizontal movements until the powder has blended perfectly into the skin. For even longer lasting hold and greater cover, apply Diorskin Forever Compact Foundation with the Backstage Compact Foundation Brush High Coverage.
Finish your complexion routine by applying a touch of blush with the Backstage Blush Brush to the top of the cheekbones. Apply the blush delicately with a figure of 8 movement to the curved part of the cheekbone. Subtly lighten your complexion by also applying the blush to the temples and the contours of the forehead.
Apply Diorshow Mono, Ribbon shade using the Backstage Eyeshadow Brush Large all over the eyelid. First apply the eyeshadow to the entire eyelid from the interior towards the exterior then concentrate the application on the centre of the eyelid, gently applying the colour by patting with the entire width of the brush. Finally, to enlarge the eyes, apply the eyeshadow to the external area of the eye, under the outer corner and under the eyebrow to form a "V".
Obtain an emblematic gaze by drawing a graphic line with a black Diorshow Art Pen/ black Diorliner. Begin by drawing a line against the upper lashes from the inner corner of the eye to the centre of the eye. Then define the external shape with the liner, starting at the outer corner of the eye and working upwards towards the extremity of the brow. Ensure that this line is no greater than the size of the iris. With a crisp line, join the extremity of the external line to that of the upper lashes. Then fill in the area created. If necessary, redefine the contours of the liner for a perfect line.
Apply the black Diorshow New Look Mascara to the upper lashes by drawing the texture from the roots to the tips. Alternate with rotating movements to intensify the curving effect. For an even more spectacular result, apply a second layer 30 seconds after the first. Then apply to the lower lashes to open up the gaze. If necessary use the Backstage Lashes Brush.
Finally, complete your gaze with the perfect eyebrows. Redraw and colour the eyebrow using the powder end. Then brush the brows with the integrated brush to eliminate any traces of foundation or powder that may dull them. Enlarge the eyes by brushing the top and respecting the direction of growth
Apply Dior Contour to define the mouth and optimise the hold of your lipstick. Start with the middle of the upper lip and draw a "V" shape on the cupid's bow. Then define the contours starting at the centre of the lips and gradually lightening until the corner. Repeat the same movement for the lower lip. Finally, colour in the inner part of the lips with the pencil to optimise hold.
Apply Rouge Dior shade 999 with the Backstage Lip brush, starting at the centre of the lips. For a perfect homogeneous result, begin the application by defining the cupid's bow and concentrate the colour at the centre of the lips. This prevents an excess of substance at the extremities. To finish this iconic look and give the mouth a velvety appearance, powder the lipstick using the Diorskin loose powder. Dip the Backstage Eyeshadow Brush Medium into the powder and pat gently all over the mouth. Repeat the process until a perfectly matt mouth is obtained.
