Get inspired by the bright eyeliner look at Dior's FW18 show

The plain face and statement bright eyeliner was a huge hit at PFW and might just be the perfect beauty trend for summer.

Backstage at the Dior show, he shared, “Normally when designers send a brief, they start with a mood board and a conversation. I got a file with sunglasses. It said, ‘could this inspire you for the show?’" The brief in question referenced the sunglasses, in shades of orange, pink, blue, yellow, green, navy and black, that every single model wore down the runway along with hats.

“The girls who wear sunglasses have yellow eyeliner. Blue sunglasses, blue eyeliner, and I started playing with that,” Philips said. Since most of the coloured sunglasses were slightly transparent, they also allowed the brightly-hued liners to be seen. Philips used various colours of a new felt-tipped eyeliner, the Diorshow On Stage Liner (in matte black, vinyl black, brown, pink, bright blue, matte blue, classic blue, purple blue and more), which hits shelves in May 2018.

Given that the theme of the collection was inspired by the anniversary of 1968 student protests outside the Dior boutique in Paris, Philips made the liner blunt and graphic. “I didn’t want to make it too pretty or too precious.” Philips suggested starting slightly after the beginning of the eye, going straight and stopping before the eye ends. “Say what you have to say, but also show that you have fun with it."

The key to nailing this look is keeping the rest of your makeup to a minimal and letting your eyes do the talking. Go for brightly hued and highly pigmented liners that are waterproof and therefore longlasting.
