the face palette: dior

  • f/w 2013 makeup
    I was asked by Marcus Kan, contributor to Swide by Dolce and Gabbana online magazine and creator of Draw a Dot, to feature some of this year's runway makeup. For each look I created a character based on what the styling reminds me of. I took that inspiration and placed them in a relating time period but with a modern take to play off the makeup that is in style now. There will be 4 looks for this series, one featured each month.
     
    Look 4: Dior
    The winged metallic eyeliner at Dior had a futuristic feel and made me think of space. I was inspired by retro futurism ideas and used those types of designs from the 1950's to convey a sense of sleek, elegant and sophisticated styling.
