Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016

Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016

It’s an extraordinary garden, a cliffside garden overlooking the sea, reborn each spring with blossoming rosebuds, irises and orchids. 

Inspired by the bucolic paradise of Christian Dior’s childhood home in Granville, Peter Philips cultivated its vibrant colours and crystalline light, its youthful spirit and the freshness of the sea spray. Escaping to other distant lands, the Creative and Image Director for Dior makeup also picked a multitude of flowers grown in an imaginary nursery, bathed in the light of the early morning sun. In tune with the season, Glowing Gardens adopts the lively charm and springtime luminosity of gardens in bloom. The multicolour collection on the expertise of the Dior laboratories to cultivate the art of a beautiful glow at the heart of its formulas for an ingenious and energetic look that embraces countless hues and textures.

The latest Dior Spring release has pastels down to a tee. The pastel lime and sky blue varnishes, the bright pastel pink blush and the pinks and corals running through the lip glosses, lipsticks and shadows make such a refined collection. But for me, it’s the gleaming golden metallics from the highlight and eyeshadows that got me inspired.


The Dior Spring eyeshadows, Fusion Mono in Equinox (Pewter Gold) and Blazing (Copper Gold) and the Glowing Gardens Palette, are definitely the winning products for me in this collection. Their pigmentation is absolutely beautiful and the metallic content just gleams so vividly when it catches the light. Whilst I usually add a matte shade into the crease of my eyelid, I couldn’t help but go all out with the metallic shimmers. Blending the coral shade through the crease, the grey to the lid, the snow white to the inner corner and using the dark grey to wing out a cat eye flick! Over the very top I also added a touch of the Fusion Mono eyeshadow in Equinox with my finger – but these could just be used separately, over bare lids to add a gleam of light. I absolutely adore these pots and whilst I have never been a mono shadow girl before, these have gone with me everywhere since I found them!

A truly beautiful Spring collection indeed. I would not expect anything less from Dior.
