Dior · Dior En Diable Fall 2018

 

Just one look at the Dior en Diable Collection for Fall 2018, and there’s no doubting that Peter Philips — Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup — was inspired by Fall’s glorious riot of colour. The rich autumnal shades are interspersed with some unique pops of colour to keep things interesting, and even though I’m not exactly looking forward to the upcoming cooler weather, these pieces are making a strong case for the season, dammit. #resistanceisfutile

Lately I’ve been exploring “green” beauty options, in large part to BEAUTYCOUNTER, a brand that’s committed to producing luxury quality cosmetics and skincare that’s as well-crafted as many higher-end counterparts, but without any suspect or banned ingredients.
