Dior Metallic Collection
The power of makeup is endless, but winter is one of the best times to try something new and experiment with new trends. Makeup has the ability to transform any look and it’s the easiest way to create a new identity. With the winter beauty crazes coming in fast and furious, it’s hard to know which trends to jump on. Metallics have been extremely popular for a few seasons, but this season, it’s hands-down the style you need to try and recreate. From shiny lip colours, to chrome finishes, to metal and platinum eyes, metallic makeup isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The new Dior Metallic Collection takes inspiration from this trend, and creative and image director, Peter Philips, takes vibrant hues to create a ton of confident and sophisticated products. The entire lineup is strong, yet delicate, luminous and mysterious, and allows you to have fun with makeup. This season light up your eyes with a metallic sheen and glisten your lips with brilliant shine.
Any good makeup look starts with the eyes and the star of any Dior Collection is the Dior Diorshow 5 Couleurs Palette. This season it features two colour combos, in both warm and cool tone hues to help brighten up your eyes. Both are based around the centre colour in an array of matte, satin, glittery and shiny finishes. It comes in a sleek compact with a rich, creamy and velvety smooth texture that applies seamlessly to the lid. Each shade is buildable with little to no fallout and has an excellent mix of colours and finishes. When paired with a primer, it stays put on the lid all day without creasing, smudging or fading, so you don’t have to worry about reapplying before a night out on the town. The darker shades are, however, slightly richer in pigmentation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build up the intensity on the lighter shades with a few extra brush strokes. It retails for $72 in Magnetize and Hypnotize.
Dior Diorshow 5 Couleurs Palette in Magnetize contains a silver glitter, a platinum shimmer, frosted silver-grey, a sparkling charcoal and a matte blackish grey.
Dior Diorshow 5 Couleurs Palette in Hypnotize contains an icy silver shimmer, a gold glitter, a redish brick shimmer, a warm earthy brown and a matte deep chocolate brown.
Looking for a bold metal finish, try the new Dior Metalizer Eyes & Lips. Its unique hybrid formula can be used on both the eyes and lips to create a chrome-like effect on the skin. It comes in a squeezable tube for easy application and contains a rich and creamy formula within. You can use it on its own or paired over your favourite shadow or lipstick. Its metal-effect pigments are encapsulated in an ultra-creamy and quick drying formula that feels incredibly weightless once applied. When used with your finger-tip, you can create a soft, wearable light veil of colour, but if you’re looking for a bolder, more dramatic finish, try applying it with a brush. It stays put for upwards of 12 hours without creasing. It retails for $32 in 6 electrifying shades.

To finish off the eyes, lock eyebrow hairs in place with the new Dior Diorshow Bold Brow. Its mousse-like serum contains tiny microfibers to help tint hairs for a bolder, dramatic look. It’s also infused with nourishing vitamins to help thicken hairs over time. Simply brush on and watch as it effortlessly creates a lush brow shape that looks natural and youthful. This brow mascara achieves full, groomed and perfectly shaped brows almost immediately. It’s perfect when you’re looking for that full-on glam effect for parties and events, or when you’re having a lazy day, but still want your brows to be on fleek. It retails for $34 in 3 shades, Light, Medium and Dark.
To finish off your metallic look, reach for one of the new Dior Rouge Dior Lipsticks. With its hyaluronic acid and mango butters, it keeps lips incredibly moisturized and plump this winter. It also helps to smooth fine lines and increase depth to your lips. Its light reflecting particles provide more dimension, for a bolder, more intense look. Like all Dior lippies, it features an incredibly creamy and smooth texture that’s intensely pigmented and opaque in a single swipe. It’s longwearing, fade, smudge and budge proof and feels comfortable and lightweight on the skin. Its 12+ hour longevity ensure you don’t have to touch-up throughout the day and well into the evening. It retails for $43 in 5 shades.
