Discover the first makeup line inspired by the backstage for every woman who wants a professional result.

The Christian Dior Backstage is a collection that draws its inspiration from my work backstage. It includes all my essentials — professional, adjustable formulas — in neutral shades, in a range that works with every skin tone.

Dior reinvents makeup with Dior Backstage: the first makeup line inspired by the backstage and designed by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, for every woman who wants a professional result.

“With Dior Backstage i want everyone to have access to my expertise. These are efficient products that provide a professional result but are simple to apply,” explains Peter Philips.

Aimed at all women, this range of universal adjustable products has already won over 50* talented makeup artists as well as the most demanding models, who have immediately adopted the line.

Thanks to its 40 universal shades, the new FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION suits every skin tone. With its fluid, second-skin texture, this buildable foundation provides made-to-measure intensity. Its waterproof formula is heat- and humidity-resistant and can survive all the effervescent and hectic conditions both backstage and on the runway – which is why we call it Runway Proof. This foundation, with its natural and luminous finish, is also an indispensable product for the body, revealing radiant skin while hiding small imperfections, for example on the décolletage or shoulders. In addition to its transparent bottle, practical for makeup artists, its precision tip enables you to apply exactly the right amount of fluid foundation from the first squeeze of the product.

Peter Philips designed two essential palettes: The GLOW FACE PALETTE, is a secret weapon, with ultra-fusional textures and a concentration of mother-of-pearl that weightlessly adds a veil of light, thereby providing a natural, radiant glow. The CONTOUR PALETTE, for perfect contouring. Depending on your skin tone, you choose one of two shades that catch the light and one of two darker, matte shades that sculpt the face with textures so fine they melt into the skin imperceptibly.

The LIP PALETTE is a perfect palette of neutrals for every shade of lips. It works just as well for women who want a light makeup look as for those looking for an intense result. Containing 3 shades of volumizing gloss, 3 shades of satin-finish lipstick and 3 different matte shades rich in pigments, the palette can be used as a base, plumper, liner, or lipstick.

In the EYE PALETTE, the makeup on offer is just as varied, with two colour harmonies, one cool and one warm.

The new Dior Backstage campaign immerses you in the beauty preparations of a runway show. Four famous top models put their faces in Peter Philips’ hands: Bella Hadid, Chu Wong, Manuela Sanchez and Ruth Bell, who have already stood out in Dior campaigns and runway shows. This universal line adapts to their different skin tones, revealing the beauty of each of them in a unique way – for they are young, spontaneous, fresh, fashionable and above all, unique.
