It feels like every time you open social media, you find somebody raving about a Dior Beauty product. I actually find it quite amazing how one of the most prestigious brands in history, that is rooted in heritage and old-money luxury, has created a line of beauty products that is one of the most modern and lusted over of current times. It’s a true testament to how Dior have marketed and moulded themselves throughout the years to make the brand attractive and obtainable to all generations. And what makes it even better, the products are truly worth the price. Here are some of my favourites…
DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE & BODY FOUNDATION
When it comes to foundation, I’m usually a full-coverage kind of girl. However, some days all I want is a lighter base that allows my natural skin to shine through while still having coverage. The Dior Backstage Foundation is my go-to option for these moments. With a light, hydrating and smooth formula, it can be layered up to your desired level. I personally then take one of my favourite concealers – be that the Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion or the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush – and add a fine layer on top of the Dior Backstage foundation. This adds an extra hint of coverage the foundation can’t provide (as it’s a lighter coverage formula), while maintaining a natural, radiant and fine base that looks like skin.
I wear the shade 0W.
DIOR PRESTIGE LE MICRO-FLUIDE TEINT DE ROSE FOUNDATION
The Dior Prestige foundation is everything it says in the name. It’s a true luxury product, with a luxury price tag. With skincare ingredients and light-reflecting properties, this full-coverage formula allows the skin to look radiant and flawless without ever looking cakey or mask-like. Whether your skin is dry or oily, this foundation is an amazing formula that wears beautifully throughout the day.
I wear the shade 0N Neutral.
DIOR FOREVER NATURAL BRONZE
Bronzers bring a makeup look together. They add warmth to the face, and add a healthy glow back to our complexion after applying our foundation and concealer. While there are a lot of bronzers on the market, over the years I’ve been on the hunt for the smoothest formulas that blend effortlessly across the skin without clinging onto dry patches or looking muddy. The Dior Forever Natural Bronze is a stunning option that is packed with pigment and blends like a dream. It wears beautifully, melting into the skin.
I wear the shade 02 Natural Bronze.
DIOR FOREVER COUTURE LUMINIZER
The Dior Forever Couture Luminizer was one of the first highlighters that I ever purchased, and I’ve loved it ever since. Over the years, Dior have continued to re-develop, improve and re-release the formula, updating the packaging each time to suit the current style. It’s a beautiful and fine pressed powder that glides onto the skin without accentuating texture whatsoever. It never looks grey on the skin and has more of a wet-look shine rather than a shimmery reflection. My favourite shade is 02 Pink Glow.
DIORSHOW ICONIC OVERCURL MASCARA
Just as the name suggests, the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara truly is an industry icon. It’s a classic formula that is adored by celebrities, models and the general public alike, and it’s easy to see why. With a buildable formula, the curved wand helps to curl the lashes and keep them lifted all day long. Coming in black and brown, you can choose a colour that suits you best.
DIOR ADDICT LIPSTICK
I don’t have a preference between matte and creme lipsticks, just as long as the formula is comfortable and looks beautiful and natural on the lips. The Dior Addict Lipsticks are a lightweight and fine formula that have buildable pigmentation and a stunning yet gentle shine. They’re incredibly comfortable on the lips and come in an abundance of nude, neutral, red, bold and bright shades. My favourite shades have to be 100 Nude Look, Dior’s iconic neutral pink, and 418 Beige Oblique, a neutral beige with a pink undertone. Both are brilliant everyday colours that will suit so many skin tones.
DIOR ADDICT LIP GLOW OIL
The product that has taken the internet by storm. The Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil is an industry favourite when it comes to lipgloss. With a balmy texture and high-shine finish, it comes in seven sheer shades, as well as a completely clear option too. Without shimmer, these are the ultimate everyday lip product, and leave your lips feeling hydrated and soft. My favourite shades are 001 Pink and 000 Universal Clear.
DIOR ADDICT LIP MAXIMIZER
When it comes to Dior lip products, the Dior Addict Lip Maximizers have to be my favourite from the range. As a plumping gloss, it makes the most out of your lips and allows them to look full and juicy, while feeling hydrated and soft. The formula doesn’t last all that long on the lips, however re-application is incredibly easy and doesn’t accentuate any dry skin you might have. My favourite shades are 001 Pink, 013 Beige, and 014 Shimmer Macadamia.
