Dior’s Summer 2012 makeup collection is all about an escapade on the Croisette… a glamorous couture trip. The French Riviera has always been a great source of inspiration for Christian Dior. From Dior’s first swimsuit collections and seaside fashion designs in the Fifties to the current Resort 2012 collection as shown above.
The new summer make-up look revives this fascination for the Croisette with colours inspired by the sun and turquoise waters, created by Tyen.
Please enjoy my collection favourites below:
