Dior: Romantic geisha make up


©Dior Haute-Couture Summer 2009

On the podiums
Sensual and sophisticated, this geisha look is stunning under the flashing lights of the cameras. Delicate but strong shades of candy pink, sunny yellow and emerald green also give a welcome nod to the soft shades of spring. This very fine, precise look is pure, insolent, butter-wouldn't-melt femininity.

In your mirror
> Create a perfectly matte powder base. Circle your eyes with a halo of pale satin shadow in white, peachy pink, yellow or green, apply thick eyeliner and black mascara for doll-like lashes.

> Apply a touch of pearly cream blusher in pink on the apples of your cheeks to create a Russian doll effect (smile while you apply to make sure you're getting it right).

> Complete the look with candy pink lip gloss, applying it generously to the centre of your lips à la Betty Boop.
