Inspired by the Iron Lady (La Dame de Fer in French), a.k.a. the Eiffel Tower, the Dior Skyline fall 2016 makeup collection aims at turning you into the ultimate seductress of the upcoming season. Comprising mesmerizing eyeshadow palettes, cheek and lip products, the long-awaited collection is set to hit the international market later in August, 2016, when you’ll finally be able to purchase your favorites from Nordstrom, Sephora, Harrods and other major department stores.
The collection strives to give your face that majestic play of light and shadow, creating a kind of enigmatic beauty that’s truly obsessive. While the complexion is kept natural and clear, all the focus centers on the edgy lip makeup and the heavily accentuated eyes without looking overwhelming. It’s the highly coveted look Peter Philips created for the Dior fall 2016 runway show.
This is what you get in the Dior Skyline fall 2016 makeup line:
Dior Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duo ($ 44.00)
This innovative sculpting stick duo features a matte contouring shade on one hand and a shimmering softer color on the other one that is perfect for highlighting. While with the contouring color you can sculpt your facial structure, with the help of the modern strobing techniques you can give that irresistible glow to the high points of your face.

Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer
This universally flattering shining powder will brighten up your face even more, serving as the best finishing touch to your flawless complexion achieved with the help of the brand’s Diorskin Forever foundation.
Dior Fix It Color 2-in-1 Prime & Correct Face-Eyes-Lips ($ 36.00)
This 2-in-1 stick is a multitasking concealer inspired by the backstage beauty techniques Dior’s makeup artist applies. It serves as a lip primer creating the perfect base for your lipstick application, as well as comes to act as a skin perfector concealing under-eye dark circles, blemishes and other small skin imperfections. The product is available in four colors each boasting a special feature:
• 100 Bleu – a light blue color that masks yellowness, removes signs of fatigue and brightens up the skin
• 200 Abricot – a soft peach color that conceals under-eye dark circles and dull complexion
• 300 Jaune – a light yellow color that hides vascular mesh
• 400 Vert – a pastel green color that neutralizes skin redness
Dior Flash Luminizer ($ 38.00)
Obviously, creating your dream flawless complexion is the primary focus of the Dior Skyline fall 2016 makeup line, as it offers so many innovative products for diminishing signs of fatigue and illuminating your skin instantly. This illuminating concealer is another must-have product if you want to mask minor skin problems, such as dark circles and blemishes, and boost the fresh, radiant look of your face.
Apply the product before or after the foundation, on the high points of your face – the chin, the nose bridge, the cheekbones, the forehead and the nose wings. It’s advised to use a color that is one tone lighter than your foundation. The product is available in four shades to match every skin tone out there.
Dior Skyline 5 Couleurs Palette ($ 63.00)
Peter Philips has created two fall-ready eyeshadow palettes for the new season, one of which creates timeless soft earth eye looks, while the other one is all about balancing the warmness of browns with touches of plum and pink.
