Most of the fashion-critic jury’s still out on Dior Spring 2014 — Cathy Horyn and Tim Blanks seem to like it, Robin Givhan questioned the collection’s real-world application — but what we’re really itching to talk about is the makeup.
Pat McGrath perennially pulls out all the stops for Raf Simons, and this season, that meant an artfully smeary metallic eye under a pair of alien-esque golden arches to complement the hard-edged, insignia-festooned dresses and a show space designed to resemble a toxic rain forest.
Here, we’ve compiled more looks from the French house’s recent face-painting history, which usually appear to entail food-grade glitter, rhinestones, minimal talking and certainly no Sancerre. Beyond M. Simons’ recent focus on the above-the-nose zone, we can only hope to predict what’s next: 3-D floral face appliqués? A stripe-y lip? No-makeup makeup? Give us your best guesses below.
