If you've ever wondered why you can't quite get the same makeup effect that is achieved on the catwalk — think glowing skin, va-va voom lashes and brilliant lip colour — it's because, well, firstly, you're not a pro. It's also likely that you're not working with products that are meant to achieve that high-intensity finish, since real-life cosmetics are kind of watered down in terms of pigments to make them wearable and easy to apply.

Dior bridges that gap with their Backstage Pros —  inspired by the tips and actual tools and makeup used by their professional artists behind-the-scenes — but packaged into more user-friendly products. Here are our picks.
