Introducing Dior Croisette Makeup Collection For Summer 2012


The Dior Cruise spirit shines and inspires the most flattering shades. Fond of the art of elegant living in the sun, Christian Dior created the Dior Resort and Spring collections as early as 1948. Chic swimsuits and shimmering outfits form the ideal wardrobe, which has a carefully relaxed feel.

Unique outdoor chic: a sunny Dior style that illuminates women more than ever before.

Today, Dior revives this fascination for the Croisette with a look inspired by the sun and turquoise waters, created by Tyen. The ambience is fresh and colourful. Between warm shades with incandescent radiance and aquatic blue colour blocks, eyeshadows flash on the skin and embody the contrast between sunbathing and a dip in the ocean.

Make way for a sexy, chic approach and a French touch. Embrace the glamour of gently tanned skin enhanced with dresses of sunray pleats, a trademark of the House. Show off a French Croisette style.

customised for a radiant healthy glow

With the aim of a natural and radiant tan, Dior creates a new healthy glow makeup product with a bare skin effect for all skin tones, all year long.

Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder is nestled in a precious round case in white bronze, engraved with the Dior canework motif and decorated with the embossed NUDE logo. This incredibly chic object is now a must in all tanning routines, accompanied by a mini kabuki brush.

The Nude Tan formulas contain translucent mineral prisms that adjust to the skin tone and the surrounding light. The skin tone is enhanced with a sheer, natural finish. Inside the Diorskin Nude range, with the Nude Tan powders, active mineralised water is enriched with a sweet orange extract to boost microcirculation with each application, the skin glows with vitality and looks more and more beautiful.

Just for summer, the 5 Couleurs palette is embellished with a sunray pleat relief, a couture reference to the Dior dresses whose finish exemplifies the know-how of the House. The palette comes in two colour interpretations of the French Riviera.

Each palette contains four pearly shades and one satin shade to contrast colours and textures and create depth.
