Airbrushed Neon Eyes at Dior Homme

Straddling between contrasting sets of classic and vibrant surfer outfits, Kim Jones presented this week a dreamy pre-fall 2020 show for Dior Homme.

His choice of destination? Miami, right across the street from the brand new Rubell Museum. On the eve of Art Basel, Jones payed homage to the city's heritage and its prized surf culture as the neon green runway played host to an array of colorful shirt jackets, floral pajama sets, pleated silk shirts and psychedelic prints.

Taking the '70s surf spirit one step ahead was Dior's creative and image director Peter Philips who had bright swathes of fluorescent eyeshadows generously spread across the lids, over the eyebrows and around the ends.

To create the painterly look, Philips employed one handheld Temptu Air device to spray the lime green shade across the eyes, he told Vogue backstage.

Dubbing it "cyber-surfer," the makeup artist explained the look was fashioned in the "style of" 1982 neo-noir classic, Blade Runner and used the character Pris Stratton as inspiration. "It's the same color as the set — [very] chemical," he said.

The process behind creating the rich color involved blending shades of blue, yellow, and white paints together to compliment the rest of the show.

The rest of the look in contrast remained simple, with the lips largely coated with a nude pink gloss and the skin toned down for a more natural, luminous finish.

Over in the hair department, hairstylist Guido Palau continued to channel the surfer chic vibe keeping the models' hair in "wet, disheveled" locks.

The look, according to Vogue, was created in two simple steps: First, Palau blasted the lengths of the hair with the Redken Argan-6 Multi-Care Oil finishing with the high shine spray.
