Get the look: Master the futuristic, graphic eye makeup from the Dior fall 2020 men’s runway show
No one bats an eyelash at us gals borrowing a fashion piece or two from the boys anymore. Everything is fair game, from joggers to jackets to jeans. It stands to reason that this applies to all things beauty, too — and we're not just talking pomades and razors, mind. On our agenda in December: re-creating the statement eye look sported by the male models at the Dior fall 2020 men's show. Think futuristic, cyber-punk vibes straight out of indie cult film, Blade Runner, perfect to usher in a new decade with. Dior's Creative and Image Director, Peter Philips tell us all about it.
The clean, luminous skin with Dior's Homme Dermo System Line
Boys, picture a simple yet efficacious line-up comprising cleansing gel, moisturising emulsion, eye serum, and after-shave lotion. They come formulated with star ingredient, vitamin E phosphate — it shields your face from free radicals while strengthening the skin barrier. Embark on this routine to build a strong foundation to the next aspect of this look, which is...
The soft, natural glow with Dior Backstage Primer, Foundation and Concealer
For makeup that stays on all day, Philips opted for the Dior Backstage Face & Body Primer. "It is a natural, transparent base that mattifies and blurs the imperfections," he explains. "I then evened out the complexion using the Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation Line, whose light texture creates a perfectly natural impression." He added a touch of the Dior Forever Undercover Concealer and Flash Luminizer for a flawless finish.
The straight, full brows with Diorshow's Brow Styler and Pump 'N' Brow
Thick, full, and straight is what Phillips was aiming for when it came to the arches. To achieve the effect, he reached for the Diorshow Brow Styler as well as Pump 'N' Brow. The former adds definition and shape to brows, while the latter lends natural volume and texture.
The neon strip with an airbrush... or the Dior 5 Couleurs in 357 Electrify
"For the grand finale of this look, I sprayed a strip of yellow and green colour across the eyes with an airbrush," Philips says. "In this way, futuristic, colourful, and graphic eyes seem to pop out of the shadow created by the bucket hat." Failing that, reach for the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in 357 Electrify, which comprises pigment-packed shadows in similar hues.
The full, kissable pout with Dior's Lip Maximizer
This fan-favourite hydrating and plumping formulation was slicked over pouts and blotted with a tissue for glistening, glimmering lips.
