A New Beauty Order, Backstage At Dior Couture
In case it wasn’t clear from the flick of black liquid liner, rows of fluttery lashes, perfectly pink cheeks, and moisturized lips, the goal at Christian Dior Couture was pretty, minimal beauty. “Very fresh” is how makeup artist Pat McGrath described the soft, ingenue look that encompassed a light veil of foundation, glowing, slightly rosy cheeks, and lids accessorized with a bit of an obsidian wing. “It’s contemporary,” coiffing star Orlando Pita added, prepping hair with his Plump heat-seeking liquid hair plumper before crafting a deep side part and curling ends under into a rolled faux bob. It’s a new approach to couture hair and makeup, Pita explained of the decidedly novel order of the day backstage, where spectacle typically triumphs over all; to see models without elaborate headdresses, sequined eyes, and blocked-out brows here is a rare occasion indeed.
