He may be the mas­ter of min­i­mal­ism, but that’s not to sayy Peter Philips, cre­ative and im­age di­rec­tor of Dior make-up, isn’t a dab hand at pow­er­ful pig­ments.p Here, his lessons for colour.

VOGUE Australia - - News - By Remy Rip­pon.

1. THROW OUT THE RULE BOOK “There was a time when ev­ery­thing was dic­tated. It used to be if you have blue eyes you couldn’t wear blue eye­shadow. Nowa­days it’s all about your in­di­vid­ual per­son­al­ity and how to ex­press your­self.” 2. BLUSH UP “If you look at a face, the eyes and the lips are the main fo­cus points. But don’t for­get the cheeks. Make sure you ap­ply blush, be­cause it links ev­ery­thing to­gether. It can be help­ful when you’re play­ing with colour.” 3. EM­BRACE INDIVIDUALITY “If you are a girl who ex­presses her­self in bold colour, that’s a good thing; if you shy away from bold colour, you should not force your­self to wear it. Put it on, and if it’s not good, take it off.” 4. TRENDS ARE OLD NEWS “Make-up trends are some­thing that is from the past. Make-up it­self is so huge and that is a trend – the fact that peo­ple are re­ally hav­ing fun with make-up was unimag­in­able 10 years ago. So­cial media opened up a lot of doors. It made it pos­si­ble to re­ally em­brace make-up, be­cause women see oth­ers self-ap­ply­ing. It made make-up demo­cratic for every­body.” 5. UN-FOLLOW THE LEADER “When I cre­ate my col­lec­tions I al­ways make sure that most of the col­lec­tion is easy to wear, and guar­an­tees beauty with­out the pres­sure to be fash­ion­able. Be­cause not ev­ery woman wants to be fash­ion­able, but I’m sure ev­ery­one wants to be beau­ti­ful.”
