Dior Makeup Holiday 2021 ushers in the festive season with a collection of luminous colour palettes – and one resplendent minaudiere – dressed in the opulence of its famous address.
The birthplace of Dior is the legendary address 30, Avenue Montaigne. The story goes that when Christian Dior first passed this Parisian townhouse in 1946 with its unmistakable neoclassical Louis XIV-style front, he knew it had to be his. The rest, as they say, is history.
For its Holiday 2021 collection, the house of Dior is commemorating its “Atelier of dreams” by showcasing its famous historical façade on its new series of eye colour palettes and lipsticks, and makes for a great headstart on gift planning for our favourite time of the year.
The 5 Couleurs Couture palette features a detailed motif of the address, and delivers instant and long-lasting intense colour with two festive colour harmonies for the holidays: Atelier Doré in satin beige, warm gold, red-brown and copper brown, around a sparkling gold; and House of Dreams in satin peach, dusty pink, deep taupe and matte brown, around a shimmering silver.
Pairing with the 5 Couleurs Couture palettes are the super intense Diorshow 24H Stylo eyeliners in a golden glittering brown and deep taupe with a violet gleam, especially created for the holiday season.
For the lips, the iconic Rouge Dior, one of the first lipsticks created by Christian Dior, pays tribute to its history with a decorated tone-on-tone case representing the façade of the Parisian boutique, and comes in four saturated tones: Pink Rose, a pearly pink with a vintage feel; Red Pansy, a matte red-brown; Winter Poppy, a velvet red with a blue tinge; and the iconic 999 shade in a velvet finish.
Diorific, the timeless lipstick in a figure-8 shape, features four new colours: Rose d’Hiver, a timeless rosewood; Rouge Capucine, a blazing red; Taupe Ispahan, a sensual pink-brown; and Midnight Corolle, a deep aubergine.
For the cheeks, Rouge Blush The Atelier of Dreams is a glowing coral shade that shimmers with pink for a luminous, festive complexion. And for the nails, Diorific Vernis nail varnish features two intense shades that echo the lipstick palette, with the seductive, rich red Poppy, and contemporary black red Corolle.
And as a final grand gesture, and to celebrate the imminent re-opening of the historical 30 Avenue Montaigne boutique, Dior reveals the Rouge Dior Minaudiere, an exquisite objets d’art created specially to house the iconic Rouge Dior lipstick and three refills. Dressed in a metallic gold case featuring the famous facade, the minaudiere can be carried as a makeup clutch in hand, or worn on the shoulder using a detachable chain.
The Dior Makeup Holiday 2021 Collection and limited edition Rouge Dior Minaudiere will be pre-launched exclusively on the new Dior Beauty Online Boutique on 7 October for one week, and will be available at all Dior Beauty boutiques and counters from 15 October 2021.
