Dior · Backstage Collection

 

Inspired by the prep work required when working on runway shows, Dior just released the Backstage Collection, a grouping of palettes for eyes, lips, face, and brows that not only have universal appeal, but aim to simplify your makeup routine (they actually do).

The textures and colours of Summer — warm air, rippling water, and hazy filtered light, are all so beautifully represented and form the key to understanding these pieces: it’s about the application, and more importantly, layering. Plus, everything is just so gorgeous …
