How To Wear Deconstructed Eyeliner, According To Dior


                     Coloured Eyeliner



Forget cut crease eyeshadow looks and precision cat-eye flicks. According to Peter Philips, creative and image director at Dior Makeup, there’s an easier way to wear your eyeliner: deconstructed. “We have created a deconstructed eye – something between a smoky eye and an eyeliner,



Taking inspiration from strong French women in the ’50s and ’60s – underground French singer and actress, Juliette Gréco, a regular on the bohemian scene in Saint-Germain-de-Pres, was a key muse – Philips wanted to evoke the “melancholic mood” of the time via the eye make-up. “This look is not a literal interpretation of how the make-up was worn in those days, but more about the feel of the time,” he says. “It’s melancholic, a bit nostalgic and sad, just like Saint-Germain in the ’60s. At the same time, it feels almost punk.” 



Hairstylist (and Vogue’s contributing beauty editor) Guido Palau created hair that was “punky in a way that’s kind of dishevelled”. “A lot of the girls have got a very simple ponytail that’s pulled back from the face,” he said. “I used Oribe’s volumising Maximista Thickening Spray to blow hair into the ponytail. They’re wearing a beautiful Dior headband, which has a crinkled ribbon attached to it.” Those with textured hair have fine, slightly angled braids. “It’s a very Maria Grazia idea of beauty,” Palau concludes. “Simplistic, but embraces personality.”
