Give your lips the Dior Couture signature
with a mattified velvet finish
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.
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.
