Beauty Tutorial: Christian Dior Hollywood Glamour

Hollywood glamour got an update for Spring/Summer at Christian Dior with big red, pouty lips and pastel eyeshadow.
To recreate the look, begin with a Matt foundation and loose, matt finishing powder. Adding the lipstick is the hardest part of this look - perfection is a must.
Begin with a red lipliner, in the same shade as the lipstick - to outline the area and define the lips. This is the most important part ot get right, so keep working at it until you achieve the correct lip outline.

Your best bet at getting the lips perfect is using a small lip brush. This will help you get a precise, painted on effect. You may need to blot your lips a few times of blotting paper (or toilet paper if you don't have blotting paper!) and keep reapplying until the lips are a vibrant red.

If you want to go for the full Dior look - try Dior Rouge Dior Replenishing Lipcolor in Celebrity Red.


Now for the eyeshadow. You'll need a cool pastel shade in blue or green. I like this one by Illamasqua - cream eyeshadow.

Begin by curling your eyelashes as much as possible and applying a generous amount of mascara on bottom and top lashes.
Add a very thin line of liquid eyeliner along the top of your upper lashes, leaving the bottom of your eye bare.
Next use a wide eyeshadow brush and apply the eyeshadow beyond the crease of your eye. Make sure the finished look is smooth and rounded.

 Eyebrows were minimal - just plucked and tidy - use some eyebrow gel to get them perfectly in shape.
Your look should be quite close to the original Christian Dior runway look - perfect for an evening on the town.
