Just when you thought Peter Philips might have grown tired of sticking things to models' faces, he went and found some more things to stick to models' faces! In fact, Dior's creative director for beauty really outdid himself at the fashion house's pre-fall show in Tokyo on Thursday, crafting a makeup look that's somehow creepy, pretty and cool, all at once.

The whole thing hinges, of course, on that rectangular graphic eye. Just a little wider than the models' irises, it creates the illusion that the models have big, black dots for eyes, like scary dolls. Or sharks. At a distance the effect is chilling — a more decisive version of the doll-like look Tom Pecheux created at Altuzarra's spring show. But taken up close, it actually comes off rather cute, thanks to the pretty pink cheek and row of rhinestones at the lash line.

It's also worth calling out the Wednesday-Addams-gone-Von-Trapp-child hair — maybe I'm just describing FKA twigs? — which would be a great thing to try out at home, or possibly for a holiday rave.
