Eyes on the prize

Backstage beauty: Dior makeup goes pro
Inspired by the makeup and tools used backstage, Dior develops new eye makeup products that work fantastically in real life too

The Diorshow mascara was an iconic lash booster that is still extremely popular today. But its large brush was not always easy to manipulate for those with a narrower eye shape or tiny lashes. Dior decided to improve on the original by changing the brush to a slimmer, conical-shaped one that is better suited to Asian eyes and also changed the wiper so that less air would get pumped in each time the mascara was opened. The result? The new Diorshow Designer mascara — designed to lengthen lashes without the need for falsies.

The other star of the range is the Diorshow Pro Liner. It combines the ease of an eye pencil with the glide and intensity of a liquid liner, so that you can get any shape you want. Think precise lines as well as dramatic cat eyes — use the thinner or thicker side of the applicator according to what you want to achieve. Other pieces in the collection include the brand's famed 5 Couleurs Designer and the Brow Styler Gel — that gives perfectly defined brows without any fuss.
