Backstage at the Dior Cruise '17 collection show, at the Blenheim Palace, the brand's beauty Creative and Image Director Peter Philips is busy creating the London look. It's a look that is set to forecast the art of face makeup into a moody, trend-setting tone for the season. Complete with Dior's pigmented palette comes a coveted collection, which Philips credits to a combination of colours and application techniques.

"I used the deep bronze shade from the 5 Couleurs palette Parisian Sky, which I applied as a colour-block in a single sweep over the entire eyelid, from the lash root to the eyebrows," explains Philips. "This extreme look was chosen to contrast with the Baroque beauty of the décor," he continued. 

Go backstage now at the Dior '17 Cruise show and see Philips' work, and then she the final Dior look on the new face of Dior beauty, Bella Hadid...
