It's almost time to put away the winter clothes and break out your spring wardrobe so today I'm exploring seasonal trends with the elegant 5 Couleurs Shadow Palettes from Dior. What initially caught my attention (aside from the stylish puffed fabric design with intricate stitching) are the expertly coordinated color combinations. Each flattering collection is designed around the signature shade in the center with the versatility to create 2 stunning looks: light and neutral or sultry and sophisticated.
The finely milled, silky formula is lightweight, radiant and soft for sheer to medium coverage and the intensity can be enhanced by layering over primer. The top pigments in each palette are ideal for sexy day looks while the bottom shades create dramatic smoky effects perfect for a night out. The shimmery finish is refined and soft for mild luminosity that isn’t glittery or overdone and each shadow applies effortlessly with little to no fallout.
Carré Bleu is my personal favorite because I love the balance of icy blues and grey tones against the deep navy which can also be used to sculpt, define and accentuate the lash line. The vivid contrast and cool color scheme is beautiful on all skin tones.
For sophisticated subtlety, the Montaigne Palette combines beige, peach and cream shadows with smoldering bronze. The colors may be sheer and reserved but they enhance the eyes just enough for everyday elegance and with a streak of sharp black liner, the effect is quite exquisite!
The 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes retail for $72.00 each at Dior counters nationwide including Sephora and Hudson’s Bay.
