Jamie Coombes, Dior’s International Make up Artist (featured above) showed me how to get the Backstage look in just 4 easy steps.

Step 1 – The Base
To create a long wear, matte glow complexion, prime the skin with a mix of one pump of Pore Minimizer into two pumps of Dreamskin. Apply to face and neck, avoid over rubbing so not to stimulate oil production. For a flawless complexion use either Diorskin Star Foundation which leaves a luminous finish, or Dior Airflash that gives skin a radiant and natural finish.

Step 2 – The Brows
Take the Dior Brow Styler to define and shape the brows. This universal shade suits all from the fairest to the darkest brows. It has a fabulous fine retractable nib that is fine enough to create a real hair effect. Shape your brow first with the brow the fill in your shape in light feathered strokes.

Step 3 – The Eyes
Prime lids using the Diorshow Eye Primer. The lightweight formula mattifies the lids, evens out the skintone and opens the eye area in an instant. The shadow pigment is intensified for long wearing colour results.

To make your eyes stand out the new Diorshow Eye Reviver consisting of one base, 4 natural shadows and liner that help you to illuminate the eyes while giving you the option to create a variety of looks ranging from subtle to dramatic. Keep your eyes peeled, this must-have palette will be available in April.

For long lavish lashes start by applying the Dior Lash Maximizer nourishes, conditions and strengthens your lashes while doubling the effect of any mascara. Next use Diorshow Mascara. For best results, leave to dry in between coats.

Step 4 – The Cheeks and Lips
Enhance the radiance of your cheeks with a natural glow using the Cheek & Lip Glow. This multi-tasking must-have creates a flush of pink on the skin. Dab three dots on to the apples of the cheeks and blend.

For added radiance, dust Diorskin Rosy Glow Blusher to the top of the cheek brow. This subtle colour makes cheeks look fresh and delivers a healthy glow.

Finally, apply Cheek & Lip Glow to the lips. The lightweight texture glides on effortlessly and leaves just the right amount of colour. If you want more colour apply two coats.
