Summer is coming and my pale complexion needs some help!…
The Dior Summer 2016 Milky Dots collection has two of the prettiest eyeshadow palettes I’ve ever seen. These are fresh with a summery vibe that gets me excited for warmer weather.
536 Escapade is the more neutral of the two. It combines sandy bronze tones together with a shimmery peach.
The shade that stands out the most to me is that peachy melon. I don’t own anything like it! The showstopping peach is complemented by a shimmery bronze, fresh pink, sandy beige and stark white shimmer highlight.
These are nicely pigmented and soft to the touch. The light shades are a big sheer but blend well with that gorgeous bronze!
Using the pink in the inner corner, I was able to create a fun sheer ombre look with the peach melon in the centre and bronze in the outer corner.
I used the white under the brow and the sand beige as transition. These have shimmer without being sparkly and always glide on smooth.

366 Bain de Mer is my new love. I don’t usually gravitate to blue shades, but this 5 Couleurs palette just called to me.
The main attraction is that bright ocean blue paired with the lighter baby blue. And I love the complementary salmon, warm beige and pinky peach sparkle!
That ocean blue was even better than I had expected! The rest are a bit more on the sheer side but complement each other beautifully.
I used the same technique as the other palette starting with the pinky salmon and transitioning to lighter blue than darker blue as I made my way to the outer corner.
I actually have never been able to master blue eyeshadow before, and my instinct was to put that bold blue on my lid, but I think this technique is MUCH more elegant.
Paired with Dior’s Milky Peach. (And OMG I love this look… as did everyone at work.)
I love both of these palettes, especially Bain de Mer which is truly unique. The soft texture, blendability and combination of shades has made these rise to the top of my makeup drawer!
The Dior Summer 2016 Milky Dots collection is beginning to pop up online now and will hit counters in May!
