Summer is a great time to bring out the color and amp up the fun! Azure blues, corals, and aqua greens take center stage in Dior‘s newest Milky Dot collection! Littered with playful polka dots which accent the bright color palette, mixed with “milky” nudes, this set takes center stage. The contrast of basic shades and vibrant summer hues are a fresh take on summertime makeup!
Christian Dior himself praised the timeless allure of polka dots, “They offer charm, elegance, relaxation and are always casual,” says Dior creative and image director Peter Philips. This season Philips, brought the polka dots to life with “a promise of a happy summer devoted to beauty.”
Add a touch of color to your eyes with Dior’s 5 Couleurs Polka Dots–Summer 2016 Limited Edition color palette in Bain de Mer. Use the middle shade as a base all over the eyelid; then have fun with the other four shades to create a uniquely customized summer look. If you’re looking for ideas on how to wear the shades, the bright blue works perfectly as an eyeliner for a feisty eye, perfect for any warm weather fête!
Add a hint of whimsy to your manicure with polka dots in neutral and bright shades. The Dior Vernis Polka Dots–Summer 2016 Limited Editions Colour & Dots Manicure Kit features two shades, a bright varnish and a lighter more natural color along with a dotting tool to get those perfect “bubbles of joy.” Start by painting your nail a base color in either shade and then use the dotting tool to apply polka dots in the contrasting color.
If a strong eye and fanciful nail isn’t what you’re after, perhaps a plumped-up pout with a hint of shimmer would be more your speed. Dior’s Ultra Gloss in Everdior will add a hint of strawberry to your sun-kissed look. This shade will easily take your look from the pool straight to dinner with its youthful vibrancy and light enhancing effect.
If the past few seasons have focused on the “no makeup” trend, this burst of color will be a welcomed change! Dior’s new collection features everything you could want for days by the shore or rooftop drinks; color, nudes, and polka dots!
