I’m giddy just thinking about the holiday season approaching- cocktail dresses, champagne, and countdowns! To go with couture, I scoured makeup counters near and far to find the most editorial and chic palette. My criteria required that the makeup looks flawless and striking in person and well as in photographs, and I could find no match for the limited edition Dior 5 Couleurs 756 Golden Shock set. Right away, I was impressed with the lush pigmentation of the colors, and the gorgeous color combinations that the makeup experts at Dior turned from fantasy to reality. Most of the time, I find that there is always a color or two in a palette that I know I won’t be using, but I buy it anyway. In this case, the experts at Dior have thoughtfully placed each shade in to maximize potential for perfect depth and blending color to create a dramatic eye.
The light pink base is a delicate sheer sparkle, followed by an intense plum which anchors the palette. I applied the plum in a crescendo to the outer portion of the lid, and then under the eye for cohesion and impact. The upper right warm pink shade can overlap the plum on top, naturally flowing into and accenting the crease. The versatile taupe on the lower right can be worn solo or blended in to create an gradual effect coming towards the inner part of the eye. The definition I achieved with this was striking and so dramatic! Finally, the gold in the center adds that glowing glamour for the holidays, turning the whole eye up a notch. The finished looks is polished, festive, and fashion-forward, I absolutely love it. The palette photographs beautifully and plays to accent the eyes creating a sexy sophistication.
