Dior‘s Christmas makeup collection Grand Bal takes its inspiration in the grandeur and glamour of ball dance. The new line that artist Tyen, the extraordinary creative director of Dior consists in limited lip glosses, nail varnish and eye makeup are just perfect for the holiday season.

Red and gold, the two tone used to create this cosmetic range refers indeed  to the extravagant parties in Mr Dior’s childhood home as well as Parisian balls in the roaring 1920s.

“Now that Cinderella’s fairy godmother no longer exists, the couturier must be the magician”, Christian Dior once said.
