Boy!! The Dior Backstage collection has been everywhere.  From Meghan Markle and the Royal Wedding, to social media.  I was drawn to the collection because of how natural everything looked.  It is said to be, “professional performance makeup.”  Its name, “Backstage” comes from the makeup that is applied backstage at a fashion show.  With the backstory, and lots of intrigue, I picked up the Dior Face & Body Foundation, in 4.5W, the Warm Neutrals Eye Palette, the Glow Face Palette and the Lip Palette.

With our Breezy Tee black Satin Lined Beanie on, I dug into the collection to see how/if the natural colors would show up on my brown skin.  I’m always on the lookout for great makeup for black women.

The liquid foundation is waterproof, sweat-resistant, resists extreme temperatures and humidity.  Who doesn’t love a weather proof foundation? With 40 shades, there is a great selection to choose from, making it a good foundation for dark skin, or anyone who finds it difficult to find their true foundation color match and undertone.  If you’re looking for a natural foundation glow, this one has it, but can also be built up.  I prefer just a layer of foundation.  It is very lightweight, which I love.  The foundation is in what looks like a small applicator bottle and my only wish is that it had a pump.  Pumps allow for better control over a liquid foundation, but that is the only thing I can fault.  It is my new favorite foundation, because I’m all about an easy, natural makeup look.  I never want to lose me in makeup.   As it says on the box, it’s also the perfect foundation for the body as well.

With matte eyeshadow and shimmer eyeshadow, it’s filled with mostly varying shades of brown, and a terracotta color thrown in, that I love.  Also included is a gold highlighter.  What makes the palette really special is the primer in the first pan.  There is actually an eyeshadow base included, making it incredibly convenient.  I love a palette I can travel with, and carry with me, with all the essentials in one place.  You can keep the eyes very nude, or vamp it up a bit with the darker colors.  You can add a shimmer on the lids, to give the look another layer.  This screams every day, natural, makeup.  I see why Meghan thought this was the best bridal makeup for her day.

New Dior Backstage Foundation, Eye Palette, Glow Face Palette and Lip PaletteOnto the Glow Face Palette.   With pink and bronze blushes, and silver and gold highlighters, this is one beautiful looking illuminator makeup palette.   From just looking at it, I assumed it would have very strong color payoff.  How wrong I was!  This highlighter palette gives the face the most natural, beautiful, glow.  With hints of color and sheen from the blushes, and a subtle glow from the highlighters, it goes along with the natural feel of the whole collection.  If you happen to be afraid of highlighters, this could be the best illuminator makeup palette to start with.  If you know you love a subtle glow from a highlighter, this is one to add to the collection.  She’s a natural stunner!

New Dior Backstage Foundation, Eye Palette, Glow Face Palette and Lip PaletteThe last thing I picked up was the Lip Palette.  I’ll be honest, I’m not typically a lipstick palette gal, because they’re not as convenient.  That said, the lovely, lovely, nude lipstick shades drew me in.  I’m a sucker for a nude lip!  Having the choice of satins, glosses or a matte lipstick, in one palette, further drew me in.  I prefer to use my fingers to apply, at least until I find the right lip brush.  This palette is the perfect end to your natural, easy look.  It’s peppered with pinks, peaches and a couple of darker colors.  So, like the eye palette, you can keep it super simple and nude, or play around with varying lipstick shades.  The lip glosses are not high shine glosses, instead they give a subtle hint of shine. I even found I liked the final look without a lip liner, and I’m a sucker for a liner.   This palette was a perfect finisher to a natural look.

New Dior Backstage Foundation, Eye Palette, Glow Face Palette and Lip PaletteThis was my first foray into the world of Dior beauty, and while I thought I’d like the collection, I didn’t anticipate liking it so much.  As with most makeup, some things just fit our personalities better than others.  From the liquid foundation, to the lip and eye palette and the gorgeous illuminator palette, this Dior Backstage collection just gets me.  When you want to look put together, with minimal effort and light washes of color, or you want the best bridal makeup with a natural touch, á la the Royal Wedding, this is the collection for you.  It’s safe to say, my first experience with Dior beauty was a raving success.  Am I Dior addict yet?  For this collection, I sure am!
