Croisette - Dior Summer Look 2012 Launch at Harrods with Vogue! Xx





CROISETTE
                                    DIOR SUMMER LOOK 2012


Me, Jamie Coombes and Charlotte Ekholt of Dior Couture


So on 3 May, we went to Harrods Ice Cream Parlour on
the Second floor 
for the launch of Croisette - the Dior Summer 2012 Look.

Nicola Moulton, the lovely Beauty Editor from Vogue was
there and Jamie Coombes the Fabulous Dior Make up Artist.
(Jamie is part of the Dior International Pro Artist team 
– there are only 10 in the team from across all the international markets. 
They get the call to represent Dior internationally 
at events such as the Cannes Film Festival 
and Paris Fashion Week as well as contributing 
to product development and supporting events all over the world.)

Jamie did the make up of the 
very beautiful Charlotte Eckholt
the PR of Christian Dior Couture.

First, Jamie put on a light foundation on Charlotte's skin
 and a layer of the fabulous skin flash which
plumps and illuminates in the most wonderful way.
Then the 750 Sunset Eye gloss and
 the bronze colour from the Aurora 5 Couleurs Palette. 
Jamie said the texture of the pigment was phenomenal
while, with a brush he 'swooped' down the socket line.

Jamie uses brushes and Fingers which helps him to
work like an artist and blend everything correctly.
He finds sponges not so good, or accurate.

Jamie then used the incredible
Turquoise waterproof eyeliner
 
working into root of lash 
and lengthening out.  He gave a tip when working with pencil eyeliners
to draw with a series of dots and join them together rather than pull at the skin.

He also loves the Sheer pigment skin flash which you can see here 
(below) on Charlotte Cheek bones before being blended in.

Diorskin Nude Tan Nude Glow Sun Powder
was then used to add a fabulous radiance to Charlotte's complexion.

Jamie always applies this in the shape of a '33'
starting at the High points of the Temple 
to the Cheeks and down to the chin.

Then to finish Jamie used Lip Balm in 003 Crystal Coral.  These are of a really
moisturising formula - great for Summer! Xx

They are not at all the same as gloss, literally lip balms
with a hint of colour.

AN ESCAPADE ON THE CROISETTE
... A GLAMOROUS COUTURE TRIP
Vibrant colours and easy living... 
The Dior Cruise spirit shines, and inspires the most flattering shades. 

Fond of the art of elegant living in the sun, 
Christian Dior created the Dior Resort and Spring 
collections as early as 1948.

Chic swimsuits and shimmering 
outfits form the ideal Cruise wardrobe, 
which has an artfully relaxed feel.

Dior introduces a sexy, chic collection inspired 
by the sunny Croisette 
and its turquoise waters, created by Tyen.



Warm shades with incandescent radiance blend 
 with aquatic blue colour blocks,
embodying the contrast between
 sunbathing and a dip in the ocean.

So to Break Down the Collection:

EYES

5 COULEURS CROISETTE EDITION

Especially for summer, the 5 Couleurs palette has
 a sunray pleat effect, a couture reference to Dior’s dresses.


Each palette contains four pearlescent shades and one satin shade, 
and is available in 2 harmonies:


1) “Swimming Pool”: aquatic pastels, 
ultramarine, sky blue, turquoise, pearl grey and bikini pink. 
The shimmering sparkle of the water 


2) “Aurora” visits the ochre of Mediterranean lands, 
with golden brown, sunny orange, 
sand and golden yellow to add intense warmth to the eyes.

1 COULEUR EYE-GLOSS: 
WET-EFFECT EYELIDS

The “it product” of summer... The first eye gloss by Dior. 
Wet shine and intense colour make eyes shimmer with a fresh finish.
This stunning gel shadow instantly melts onto the eyelid, 
its applicator leaving an even, glossy layer on the eyelid.
 The finish stays smooth and radiant all day long, 
no matter what the temperature, 
and the extreme-hold formula is also water-resistant. 

Available in 4 shades:


020 Seashell 240 Azur 560 Tan 750 Sunset 



DIORSHOW WATERPROOF LINER IN TURQUOISE: 

 this Aqua coloured waterproof liner is perfect contrast to the copper
and gold colours in the Desert shades in the Aurora 5 couleurs palette.

It sold out on the first launch day 3 May at Harrods
so when it arrives back in stock, be quick.

COMPLEXION
DIORSKIN NUDE TAN:  FOR A RADIANT, HEALTHY GLOW

The philosophy of tanning at Dior? 
Naturalness and radiance. 
With this in mind, Dior creates a new 
healthy glow makeup product with a 
bare skin effect for all skin tones, all year long, 
no matter how much sun is present.


Diorskin Nude Tan Nude Glow Sun Powder
The objective: to imitate a natural tan 
with a nude skin effect, no matter what the skin tone.

Dior has created a range of original shades suited to various skin tones, 
for a customized healthy glow that looks natural in 
both the white light of winter and in the intense rays of the summer sun.

The bronzer comes in 3 shades with a neutral tone to use all year round, 
and corresponding warmer shades for summer.

For summer: 002, 004 and 006 
For all year: 001, 003 and 005


DIORSKIN NUDE GLOW SUN POWDER (€47.00)
Available in 001 Honey, 002 Amber, 003 Cinnamon, 
004 Spicy, 005 Toffee and 006 Sienna.

Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder
To achieve the illusion of a complexion glowing with vitality, 
this powder offers a range of two original shades. 
It combines two “colour and radiance” tones with “skin shades” 
for a result that matches the original skin tone 
and provides a surprisingly natural radiance-boosting effect.

Rosy harmonies add a touch of freshness 
and an anti-dulling effect, 
while apricot harmonies ensure 
a healthy glow infused with sensuality. 



DIORSKIN NUDE TAN HEALTHY GLOW ENHANCING POWDER
Available in 001 Aurora, 002 Sunlight,
 003 Zenith and 004 Sunset.





Until next time J Xx
