Dior Features Satin Eyeshadow Strips That Are Actually Really Cool — And For Sale in January (Horay)
The Dior Spring 2015 show was a juxtaposition of classic and avant-garde. Raf Simmon's collection, which merged 18th century details and modern tailoring, was on full display at the Louvre and the models slunk down the catwalk wearing different variations of an item I'm pretty sure we all have in our closets — the plain white tank. The designer paired the classic staple with shorts, full skirts, and under embellished jackets, but the clothing wasn't the only thing worth fawning over. The makeup deserves a serious eyebrow raise, because the model's eyelids were made up with satin eyeliner stickers. I think we may have breezed straight past avant-garde and hit eccentric.
Peter Philips, the makeup artist responsible for the leather eyeliner strips at Fendi, created a more wearable version of the futuristic new trend, with graphic strips of eyeliner done in satin, for a softer form that won't weigh down your eyelids. Though it does look a little martian-esque, at least the eyeliner won't smear or smudge off during the day's wear and tear. And the best part? It's actually going to be available to the public. Dior Pastel Eyes Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches will be on sale in January 2015.
But since that's a ways off, you can play around with Dior Beauty's Fall collection, featuring twelve Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes. Each compact features a signature center shade with four other colors around it that can be worn on their own or blended together. Either way, it will embody the timeless elegance of the brand. I'm pretty stoked on the Versailles palette, myself.
So that should hold us over until January, and give us some time to debate the whole satin-eyeliner situation. I can't say I'm 100 percent down with the whole little-green-man alien vibe, but if we're talking Zenon, or maybe Rainbow Brite — I think I could get on board.
