Dior hosted a beauty event launching their Dior Backstage makeup collection with IntheFrow aka Victoria McGrath at Selfridges.
When I saw that IntheFrow aka Victoria McGrath was hosting an event with Dior launching their Dior Backstage makeup collection at Selfridges. On arrival, we were given our backstage pass and told to take our seats for their masterclass with Dior International Pro Team Makeup Artist, Jamie Coombes.
Victoria arrived and looked absolutely stunning in a Dior dress and Dior belt, ready to have her makeup done by Jamie. It was a great masterclass as Jamie applied Victoria’s makeup and talked about his techniques for applying the new collection. Victoria’s favourite products from the collection were the Dior Backstage eye palette in Warm Neutrals and the Dior Backstage Contour palette. Jamie gave us some tips about the make up, one of which was to pat on primer rather than rub it into your skin, using highlighter into the corner of your eyes to add an instant pop and using the lip palette as a blusher to match your lips.
We were then told we could get a photo with Victoria and also try out the makeup for ourselves. The queue to meet Victoria was huge so I went to try out the makeup instead with one of the makeup assistants. I was matched with the foundation and also had the eye palette tried on me. I loved how beautifully pigmented the eye shadows were and they blended really well as well. The contour palette gave an effortless glow, I had to buy one as soon as it touched my skin.
Sadly I didn’t get the chance to meet Victoria as I was fasting and needed to get home. It was a good event but honestly, it was overfilled. There were too many people in a small space and It made me panic. In any case, a huge thank you to Dior and Victoria for putting on such a great event!
