Dior Fall 2012 – Golden Jungle (With Lots of Pictures)
Dior’s Fall 2012 look for their Ready-to-wear show was a clean and polished one. Pat McGrath gave us no crazy eyeshadow colours or tons of eyeliner. No major lipstick shades to watch out for. There was perhaps some neutral eyeshadow on the eye to bring some sort of definition to that area, but the lips were kept barely glossy, and a clean polished low ponytail by Orlando Pita finished off the look.
See for yourself:
What’s interesting then, is their Fall 2012 makeup collection entitled Golden Jungle. Nothing could be further from their runway look, yet here we are. The collection features khaki and green tones that have hints of gold shimmer at every turn. All the colours in the collection are so easy to wear because they’re more or less neutrals. Even if you’re not a fan of the jungle or khakis in particular, this collection has something in it for everyone. The bronze tones go great with blue eyes, while brown-eyed girls will find that these are good neutrals to add to their makeup kits.
The highlight of the collection is the new crackle nail polish. With a gold base and olive green crackling topcoat, the duo is made to give the effect of snakeskin ($29 for the duo).
There are also two other colours new to the polishes: Amazonia and Golden Era ($24 each).
Here is golden era on: it really is a beautiful light gold.
Amazonia is going to be my go-to colour this fall. I love that it’s dark but in a shade that I’ve actually worn before. you can also be creative and add a brown shade for a camouflage effect
There are the Golden Jungle palettes which come in Golden Browns and Golden Jungle ($70 each).
Here’s my picture of the Golden Browns palette. It’s a pretty and creative way to package eyeshadow, and I found that it was easy enough for me to use a regular eyeshadow brush and pick up the colours I needed.
There are two Dior Golden Jungle 5 Couleur Palettes: Golden Savannah and Khaki Design ($60 each).
Check out Golden Savannah:
The blushes that are part of the collection aren’t new, but they accent a dramatic look perfectly. The existing duos are Sugar & Spice and Sunkissed ($42 each).
The lipsticks are Wild and Daring ($31 each). They’re meant to punch up the look – Wild is more of a beige, while Daring is more of a burgundy shade. Both are glossy and juicy colours so they’re easy to wear.
The entire collection is on counters now. Go for it!!! and it suits light, medium, amber and darker skin tones. For the clueless on how to create some Green/ Khaki looks, i will post some pictures Later.
