As we head into the final month of 2019, I wanted to spotlight a few palettes and products that I think were standouts over the past year. There have been so many exciting collaborations and innovations in beauty in terms of pigment technology, texture and effects. Today’s formulas are miles heads of those even a few years ago in terms of comfort, colour and long wear.

Dior Backstage is a line that draws its inspiration from my work backstage. It includes all my essentials in neutral shades with professional, adjustable formulas, allowing you to work with every skin tone.” _ Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director, Dior Makeup

One of my very favourite eye palettes of 2019 is from Dior’s Backstage Collection for Sephora. It’s the Backstage Eyeshadow Palette in “Amber Nudes”. What I like about it is Peter Philips, the Creative & Image Director for Dior Makeup updated favourite neutral hues in both matte and shimmer textures. He’s taken sand and beige colours but added a hint of gold or deep brown to give them depth and warmth. Just look at the deep pink colour in the bottom left corner. He’s added a little brown to make a strong colour very wearable.

Dior creates the Backstage Collection exclusively for Sephora and the inspiration is Philip’s makeup creations for both Dior’s ready-to-wear collections during Paris Fashion Week and the Couture Shows. These are more fashion-forward products that play up artistry. The Backstage foundations are particularly good if you haven’t try the line yet.

I also like that there is an eye primer included in the palette. This reinforces shadow hold and it enhances the look of the pigment. The eight eyeshadow shades blend beautifully and can be used as shadows or liner. The amber palette colours were selected to work on all skin tones.

“In addition to eight shades with different finishes (matte or shimmer), I wanted to add a rich creamy primer. It provides long-lasting hold, but more importantly, it intensifies the effect of the colour that will be applied over it,” explains Philips.
