Tuesday marked day two of the Fall 2019 shows in Paris, with Maria Grazia Chiuri showing her latest offerings for Dior. The collection itself featured plenty of plaid, tulle and belts — all topped off with a variety of on-trend bucket hats, created by fashion's favorite milliner, Stephen Jones. While all those hats made the beauty look a little hard to spot from off the runway, the hair and makeup hiding beneath them were actually well worth a second look.
Makeup artist Peter Philips, who also serves as Dior Makeup's creative and image director, described the look he created for the label's Fall 2019 show as "a '60s mod/Teddy girl inspired graphic eye-look." Like at many of the fall shows in New York, the brows on the Dior runway took a backseat to a major lash look. That translated to a mostly minimalist face, with the attention focused on the eyes; Philips created a heavy black shadow on the lids, just up to the crease of the eye, and then drew exaggerated, doll-like lashes on the lower lid. While the vintage '60s vibes certainly came through, the opaque black also lent a somewhat punk-y, rebellious feel.
Philips also, quite helpfully, posted a breakdown of the products he used to get it on Instagram. First, he evened out models' complexions with Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation and Diorskin Nude Luminizer Shimmering Glow Powder. To create subtly shiny lips that didn't distract from the rest of the makeup look, he dabbed on Dior Addict Stellar Shine in Mirage, a tinted, glossy balm.
And finally, he focused on the eyes, drawing Dior Onstage Liner in Matte Black (an opaque, matte liquid formula) in a semicircular shape over lids, coloring it in for lots of intensity; he used the same product to sketch out the lash effect on lower lids. He finished the eyes off with Diorshow Pump'N'Volume Mascara to further enhance the clump-y fullness of the look.
As for the hair, Guido Palau for Redken created a series of unique hat-hair looks — a technique he also had the chance to practice a bit at this season's Marc Jacobs show just a few weeks ago. All of the models wore variations on bucket hats, with their hair either hanging loose in blunt cuts or in low ponytails (another big Fall 2019 beauty trend) beneath. Whether models wore their hair down or pulled back, Guido and his team focused on building an easy texture.
"Because Dior has a luxeness to it, the ponytail you can see behind the hat is being blow-dried out. I'm using [Redken] Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame in the blow dry to protect and smooth the hair, then using an iron in the hair to create a natural texture," he said of the look. To finish it off and lend a bit of hold, he misted on Redken Triple Dry 15, a texturizing hairspray. "The show is about the bucket hat, so the ponytail is a way of containing it and giving it some ease at the back."
