Dior Backstage

This past weekend, Dior held a Backstage Makeup Beauty Pop Up in the Oculus at the World Trade Center to showcase their new makeup collection. The minute I heard about this, I tried to get a free appointment and I got one! I was super excited and couldn’t wait to learn from international makeup artists and explore the Dior Backstage beauty line, which I have not tried before. 

When I got there, I was told I would have one of the best makeup artists they had in their team. I guess I’m lucky! Her name was Thuy and she was super friendly and gave me so many tips and information about the products she was using on my face. She took off the makeup I had on before, put serums and moisturizers from the Dior skincare line. She even used an eyecream on me! All of it felt amazing! I gave her creative freedom and just told her to give me a night-time look of whatever she desired. In the photos at the end of this post, you can see the final look of the smoky eye she gave me that was so beautiful everyone there kept giving me compliments!! After the appointment, you can purchase whatever you liked from the collection and then go into their photo booth and take photos of your look. I got a printed Polaroid of my backstage experience and documented my entire experience on Instagram stories (see my highlights on my Instagram profile).

Below is the look I did for Insta-story today and the video is now live on IGTV (link below photos). I talk about my experience more and try on the makeup I purchased. You can purchase the products I got below as well.
