The 5 Couleurs Dior Fall 2014 Collection is all about the House of Dior reinventing the 5 Couleurs Dior Palette. The 5 Couleurs Palettes are wardrobes for the eye with key pieces and accessory shades. The centre shade of the palette is the essential shade that sets the tone for the look. The palettes contain both complementary and contrasting shades for a variety of looks. The top trio of shades are ideal for a softer daytime look while the lower trio of shades are deeper and more sultry. I love to just work from all over the palette and use all 5 shades if I can. I can’t help but want to use them all!
The 5 looks in the collection each focus on one of the couturier’s five favourite colours: Red, grey, pink, black, and blue. Lets take a look at the Dior Fall 2014 Carré Bleu Look.
Each look includes a 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette, a Rouge Dior Lipstick, and a Dior Vernis Nail Polish.
- 5 Couleurs 276 Carré Bleu
- Rouge Dior 135 Carré d’Or
- Dior Vernis 796 Carré Bleu
The 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 276 Carré Bleu is the perfect example of a blue palette done right. While 4 of the 5 shades are all blue they are all very different in tone and depth. There is a lovely cloud blue, shimmering mother-of -pearl white, shimmering turquoise, deep midnight blue, and a gorgeous steely blue in the centre.
The Rouge Dior Lipstick in 135 Carré d’Or Is a golden beige with soft frost finish. It makes for such a pretty nude lip to counteract a rich blue smokey eye. The Dior Vernis in 796 Carré Bleu is a rich dusky navy that compliments the look perfectly. The Dior Vernis are one of my favourite nail polish formulas. They offer perfect opaque coverage in a maximum of two coats and the tapered brush makes application a breeze.
Swatches are Palette top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right, centre. Rouge Dior. Dior Vernis.
The look I created is a smokey eye featuring all five shades in the palette.
