Dior Beauty Glowing Garden Spring 2016
The Dior Beauty Glowing Garden Spring 2016 is quite a big collection, so I’m posting on the star pieces in this post and tomorrow I’ll follow on with everything else. I can’t believe I said I was getting bored of Dior! This collection is exactly the right mix of vibrant shade and intricate patterning that I absolutely love on any make up – you will forgive me for not being able to swatch these beauties quite yet! Or ever.
First of all, the Diorskin Nude Air Glowing Gardens (£40) in an iridescent beige shade here, but there is also a pink version. Obviously, this is meant for highlighting and gentle contouring to give light-hit points to the face – fast forward from the grey clouds of November to the blue skies of March and April and this will come into its own.
The 5 Couleurs Glowing Gardens eye palettes come in this combination, above, which is Blue Garden, and a more pink led version, Rose Garden. Dior, both in beauty and fashion, take a lot of inspiration from flowers, not least because Christian Dior was very fond of his Granville home and garden. It’s a continuing thread through Dior collections.
I think that this popping pink/coral colour is one of Dior Beaute’s fortes – it slightly nudges toward neon in the pan but it’s one of those shades that always brings the complexion to life, even used at a very low intensity (in fact, it’s better used at a low intensity). The shade is called Floral Pink but it’s a re-working of a shade we’ve seen many times before in Dior collections because it never fails to have impact.
I think the Dior Beauty Glowing Garden Spring 2016 is so beautiful – if you ever hear me say I’m bored of Dior again, please do deliver a swift kick to my shin. The collection will hit on 20th January 2016.
