The Dior girl loves makeup, she knows about beauty trends but also has her holy grail items that she wouldn't live without. Starting with the perfected seamless base which foundation with a good coverage was buffed into the skin leaving a 'done' satin finish - Dior girls are always 'done'. Highlighter was used on the high points of the face, brow, cheeks and cupids bow and that was it - a very perfect and pretty base.
For the eyes which Makeup Artist Pat Mc Grath described as 'Techno-butterflies' a cream colour pigment base was first layed down on the models eyes and taken up to the centre of the brow and ended at that brow tail. This opaque wash of colour was either in a bright powder blue or a strong lilac, applied with flat shader brushes, the shape was perfected and geometric with no blending. On top of the flat colour contrasting Swarovski crystals were placed in formations to create shape to the eyes, none two girls were the same just like the wings of a butterfly.
Although this look is very runway, try adapting the look yourself by perfecting your base and using a cream pigment and create a more subtle and wearable shape on your eyes. Whenever using a strong colour like this on your eyes always line your upper waterline to give your eyes some definition.
