If you’re convinced to try the newly-launched makeup collection at this point, look no further as Philips himself dished on how exactly he achieved such pure yet spellbinding looks. Below is a step-by-step guide for a highlighted bare radiance all over.



A flawless makeup calls for an amazing skincare prep. Philips used the Capture Totale C.E.L.L. Energy Super Potent Serum followed by the Capture Totale C.E.L.L. Energy Face Cream. To visibly diminish the appearance of dark spots and even out the skin tone, the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation was used, varying for every complexion. To create an incredible canvas for makeup application, it was topped off with the Dior Forever Skin Correct, available in various shades that “allow light touch-ups that are completely imperceptible.”



For a subtly sharpened look, Philips worked his wand on the new Diorshow Iconic Overcurl 090 Black after curling the lashes. “This meant I could ‘open’ the eye up without any overdone effect or any overloading,” he explains. The brows were amped up with the Diorshow Brow Styler and Diorshow Pump n’ Brow to match the eyes for a precisely balanced look. “They need to look natural while adding strength to the eyes.”



Starting with the Dior Lip Sugar Scrub 001 that acts as a perfect lip exfoliator, Philips later put the Dior Lip Maximizer 001 Pink on the spotlight and blotted the shine with a tissue, imparting an ultimate matte finish in a rosy color that even lipstickphobes would love to embrace.


Get the look with these picks from Dior Beauty:


From the eyes to the hair, the lesson is uncomplicated: simplicity is key. “Hair was left natural, or covered with a small lace headscarf for some, or decorated with a delicate floral tiara for others,” he shared.


Your hands can reflect who you are, so keep them soft and polished. The classic, barefaced look extends to the nails. And so, Philips amped it up with the Dior Vernis Muguet.
