So far, reports say that the debut collection will feature 40 shades of foundation, a cushion foundation, a lipstick, a highlighter, a multi-use cream powder, an eyeshadow palette, a liquid eyeliner, an brow pencil, and a mascara — some of which will be refillable too. Designed by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, the collection is expected to include extravagant makeup picks dressed up in the signature Valentino Red. The entire collection will be unveiled on 31 May but it will be available for preorder on 15 June on valentino.com. Valentino Beauty will become available internationally come August 2021.

He will be promoting Dior’s range of makeup, skincare, and fragrances to the growing makeup- and skincare-interested male audience. “So excited to join Dior as their new beauty ambassador. Looking forward to the many things we are going to achieve together,” the J-pop entertainer shared in an Instagram post.
