Dior Beauty is Hosting a Virtual Masterclass This Week With Celebrity MUA Ricky Wilson
In celebration of the brand's new Dior Beauty Counter at Holt Renfrew.
Dior Beauty has been busy during lockdown putting the finishing touches on its brand new beauty counter at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street (which is now open). And to celebrate, the brand has enlisted Dior Celebrity Makeup Artist Ricky Wilson to lead a virtual beauty masterclass on Thursday July 16th at 7pm.
Wilson, who has worked with the likes of Emmy Rossum, Sharon Stone, Beyoncé, Aisha Tyler, Coco Rocha, Tessa Thompson and Ava Duvernay, will lead the 45-minute long masterclass with a focus on creating a stunning eye look using the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette. This will be particularly useful for the months ahead given that masks are set to be a fairly permanent part of our look for the foreseeable future.

With so many people wearing masks around the world let's make sure your eyeshadow game is on point. Here are some of my beauty tips for shadows. Make sure you use an eye cream and a shadow primer before applying shadow. I try and stay away from heavy concealer for this because it can cause the shadow to crease. And there's nothing worse than trying to apply powder shadow on top of dry eyes. If you are using neutral shades make sure you apply the proper amount of mascara and or eyeliner. This provides contrast. Some people don't know that neutral or nude eyeshadow can make the eyes look tired if applied incorrectly. If you are opting for a colorful look especially using shades that have red in them ( pink purple plum etc) you have to commit to them. If these colors are applied too light or blended out too much it may look like a black eye or pink eye… So go ahead pack it on. A tip for wearing colorful shadow for those who are afraid of it being to vibrant- use a transition color in a neutral tone in the crease so that the bold color is isolated on the lid. This keeps it safe. Makeup: @rickywilsonbeauty Photgrapher: @standamerhout #rickywilsonbeauty #colorfulshadow #eyeshadowtips #quarantinelife
Speaking exclusively with FASHION about the hottest summer beauty trends right now, Wilson said, “The hottest trends this season are focused on transparent glowing skin and an explosion of color on the eyes. Since the eyes are showing more than ever it’s important to step out of the blah browns and start to add shades of tangerine bronze and even pinks and blues. The key to wearing colour with confidence is to isolate the colour primarily on the eyelids, not blending it too far up through the crease.”
To join the masterclass and follow along as Wilson demonstrates how to nail the perfect bold eye, you’ll need to purchase one makeup product from the Holt Renfrew beauty counter.
