If we take a look at his background, it’s pretty clear why he stands out. Back in the 90’s he initially wanted to become a fashion designer and graduated in ’93 at the Antwerp Academy. It was only while helping backstage at a Margiela show that he discovered his interest in makeup. Peter Philips’ career had a first important breakthrough when he drew a Micky Mouse face onto a model for a Raf Simons shoot. At the moment he’s the creative and image director for Dior makeup.
Every time we were watching a show and the makeup actually stood out in a non dominant way, he was responsible. Here an overview of some of the looks he did during fashion weeks.
Dries Van Noten
All models at the Dries Van Noten show had a very natural look, except for a few strategically placed Swarovski crystals. Over-the-top makeup would have been too much in combination with the prints and bright colors of the ss18 collection. The reflection of the light in the crystals and the clean faces was just perfection.
