Cherie Bow - the Dior Spring 2013 Make up Collection! Xx

 Tyen has created a uniquely fresh fusion for the House of Dior with
Cherie Bow the Spring 2013 Make up Collection
an expression of Freedom, Love and Chance.
Daria Strokous looks completely amazing in the pictures
with flawless skin thanks to the brilliant Diorskin Nude BB Cream.
Her china blue eyes are beautifully framed with pink on the browbone
pale peach-taupe eyelids
from the 5 Couleurs palette
854 Rose Charmeuse 
 outlined with thick black winged eyeliner 
and famous Dior lashes.
The brows are lined perfectly in Blonde Pencil.

Daria's are the most amazing layered Dior Addict lips in Bow with
Dior Addict Glow Glossed on top.
Pink Happiness Blush is applied on the apples of her cheeks.
Her nails are in Rosy Bow and a Black Satin Bow
is tied around her neck with a ballerina pink Rose
in the centre.  We Love! Xx

Camille Miceli, Creative Director of Dior jewellery and accessories,
has reinterpreted the symbol of the bow, 
much loved ever since it was tied around
the neck of the bottle of Miss Dior Fragrance
in 1947, at the time of his first collection and 
 available exclusively to Dior couture customers.

And later and in Crystal on Miss Dior Cherie. 

 “I like bows to finish a neckline, 
decorate a hat or close a belt,” said Christian Dior. 
Whether small, large or enormous, 
I like them in any style and any material.

It has become a Dior Icon and 
 and a homage 
to the ribbons worn by the Duchesse de Fontanges - 

  Louis XIV’s favourite, 
who made history wearing her ribbons in her hair.

 Marie-Angélique de Scorailles
The Duchess of Fontanges

Marie-Angélique created the famous fashion of Fontanges.
While hunting in the forest of Fontainebleau
 her hair had got caught in some branches and she had styled
 it swiftly with a ribbon and appeared before the king 
with her hair loosely tied 
and tumbling in curls to her shoulders.
Louis XIV hunting in Forest of Fontainebleau
by Adam Frans van der Meulen 1669

 The king found this "rustic" style delightful. 
The next day, all the courtiers adopted this hairstyle

A style similar to the Duchess of Fontanges

Tyen at Dior has reinvented Pink the colour “of happiness and femininity”
from tender ballerina to hot and shocking. 
In the Chérie Bow collection, pink is mixed with smoky black and anthracite grey
...Pink, black, grey... 

In the elegance of Versailles, it’s cheeky and utterly 2013.

Below: 854 Rose Charmeuse
You can see that Daria has the sparkling peach shade 
from this 5 couleurs palette on her eyelids,
  and a gorgeous creative mix of the 
two darker pink shades blended on the browbone and socket. 
Pink on the browbone emphasises the blue in your eyes amazingly,
a tip told me by Davide, one of the Dior International Pro Team
Check my Post:

She has a thick winged black eyeliner and black Mascara.  
There is no eyeliner under the eyes, just  Dior skin flash,  
but there is a line
of pink-beige in the lower waterline -
a mix of 530 Beige Ribbon and 840 Ballerina Pink
Twin-Set Eyeshadow Pens

 So I went to Selfridges on Friday 4th January 
for my Make Over with the lovely Rachel 
- you can ring any time and book for your makeover
on the Direct Dior line: 020 7318 3696
There is no booking fee.

Rachel started with the amazing L'Or de Vie skincare - le Serum and la creme, 
then using the fabulous BB Cream in 03.
 This is an amazing foundation as it is definitely not too thick, and has all
the attributes of a tinted moisturiser letting 
your natural skin shine through, while smoothing
out any imperfections for a beautiful result.  
She then brushed on the fabulous loose Dior Skin Nude Rose face powder £47
and the NUDE powder for a toning effect.
Check my Post:  

Rachel chose Tender Coral Blush applied over the 
natural blush area of my cheeks for a natural glow.

Then using the blonde eyebrow pencil she brushed in colour
 and shape to my eyebrows in this gorgeous powdery shade.
Now for the eyes and for this Rachel chose the beautiful 
Rose Poudre Bow Pallette

and first applied the gel eyeliner (4th from left)with the brush 
very near to the lash line, even between the lashes to get a strong effect
and angled up at the edges.

Using the dark anthracite grey (3rd from left), 
Rachel blended this in at the corners and up to the sockets
and then blended in the pale grey (2nd from left) 
on the inside corners of the eyelids.

She then brushed the gorgeous pale ballerina pink (1st from left)
 all over the brow bone.
Then for the mascara and first Dior Lash Maximiser
then several coats of Dior Iconic in Black

Check my Post:

Lips are Dior Addict in 687 Espiegle 


with the incredible Dior Addict Lipglow over the top
which enhances the Pink and shine enormously
and to your own skin tone.
