Spring Is Here - Be A Flower-Woman


  I love flowers, beautiful and exquisite design, and the new makeup line from Dior Spring/Summer2014 Makeup Collection is truly an object of beauty! A flower-woman, this is the motto of the Trianon Collection from Dior inspired by Marie Antoinette: porcelain complexion, cheeks sculpted in fresh coral with Diorblush Trianon Edition, eyes subtly dressed in pastel hues with 5 Couleurs Trianon Edition, lips kissed with Rouge Dior in radiant pop coral, and porcelain blue or pink nails with Dior Vernis.


 Petit Trianon, the dainty boudoir of the queen of elegance: Marie-Antoinette and her private estate have inspired Dior makeup this season. Christian Dior's beloved monarch, a flower-woman painted in a palette of wild roses, reigns supreme over Spring 2014. The Trianon Collection is an ode to the 18th century aesthetic so adored by the founder of the maison at 30, Avenue Montaigne. Powdery colours and Fontanges bows capture the magic of Versailles and the palace gardens in full bloom. 

Let's discover some of my favourites:

 Rosy Cheeks - She is fascinating… on her cheeks a burst of blush catches the light, proclaiming the radiance of her face. Signed and embossed, Diorblush Trianon Édition sculpts girls’ cheekbones with panache. Available in two shades, pink with a hint of mauve(Pink Rêverie) and feel-good coral(Corail Bagatelle - above).

 Powdery Pastel - Blend a halo of colour around the eye. Bet on monochrome or play with clashing harmonies. Vibrate in purple and glow in opaline green, or blend sugared-almond pink, mischievous mauve, baby blue and golden yellow. Be audacious. Adorned with the emblematic bow, a beaded ribbon and the Dior signature, these spring editions of Dior 5 Couleurs take a delightful
dive into the world of the Petit Trianon.

Sugared-Almond Nails - A play on texture inspired by the porcelain and china of the 18th century, the Dior Vernis Trianon Édition nail lacquer looks matte on application before revealing a completely new pearl-frost effect. Out in the garden, Dior explores the seasonal floral hues of cornflower (Porcelaine), soft peach (Bouquet), and pure fuchsia (Bloom).
Marquise Pink Lips - This season, Dior is creating Rouge Dior in pop pink (Courtisane), coral (Crinoline), «just bitten» pink (Souveraine - above), and pure fuchsia (Allégresse). Radiant and resolutely contemporary in tandem with blushing cheeks and pastel eyelids, pink lipstick coats the lips, redesigning the curves of femininity.
 The concentrated shine of Dior Addict Gloss is decorated in pastel shades of Mousseline, Minauderie mauve, Pétillante peach and Exquise pink. A concentrate of sweetness gives the face an angelic aura.
