Dior Summer Hair & Makeup Trend

This summer there are so many trends to choose from, which is very exciting.  We are going to share all our favorite looks that have been rocking the catwalk for this season we started with Louis Vuitton’s look and today we are sharing with you Dior’s look for the summer or 2012!

Dior’s look this summer is all about bold retro chic!  And we love it!

This modern pin up look is all about full defined eyebrows, colourful painted eyes and a coral or orange/red tone lip.

1940’s pin waves is a must for this look with or with out a gorgeous mid fringe.

To achieved this makeup look apply foundation with a brush & apply a loose powder to create a matt finish to the skin (try CHANEL Matt Lumiere or Estee Lauder Double Wear Giving A Flawless Matt Finish).

Next apply concealer around the eye area (try Estee Lauder Ideal Light, to illuminate the skin around the eye).

Apply a neutral eyeshadow to the brow bone and inner eyes (try MAC Brule).

Apply a bold colour of your choice over the lid and blend up to the socket (try MAC Chrome Yellow,Purple Haze or Electric Eel).

Apply a thin line of black gel eyeliner (try BOBBI BROWN Black or Sepia) and take this right to the corner of the eye and then create a slight wing upwards to lengthen the eye.

Apply a highlight to the corners of the eyes, along the bridge of the nose and on the cupid’s bow (try MAC eyeshadow in Mylar).

Apply black mascara to the upper and lower lashes (try Lancome Hypnose).

Apply a set of lashes to your eye (try EYLURE Katy Perry Cool Kitty lashes), they will make your eyes look amazing.

Follow with a peach or pink blush (depending on your skin tone) along the cheekbones not the apples (try MAC Melba or Fleur Power).

Finally apply a coral or red/orange tone lipstick to the lips (try MAC Ravishing or Lady Danger).


Creating gorgeous 1940’s wave you can either use small heated rollers or a medium sized tong  (Using the tong once each section is curled roll up and secure with a grip to cool)

Seperate the hair to create a side parting if you do not have a fringe.

Spray each section of hair with a setting spray before applying heat (try PAUL MITCHEL Fast Drying Sculpt Spray).

Start with each side crating 3-4 for sections depending on the thickness of your hair and making sure you get heat right up into the roots to give lift.

The back section apply the same method as the sides but create a brick like formation with the curls (Curls/rollers should be offset from each other)

Once all your curls are cool, brush through the curls with a fine bristle brush or wide toothed comb.

Use flat sectioning clips or lady Jane’s to  hold the waves in place around the front section, curling the bottom ends under.

Apply finishing spray (try PUAL MITCHEL Fast Drying Sculpt Spray, as is a great finishing spray as well as a setting spray).

Remove your clips and your ready to rock you Dior Retro Chic look for the summer!

We hope you have fun creating your retro chic like look for this summer and watch out for our next post for our next summer makeup trend.
