A new formula from Dior promises results on par with the queen of close-ups, Natalie Portman.

One doesn’t get to be the face of Dior without a perfection-oriented regimen in her pocket. Actress Natalie Portman, who’s currently editing her directorial debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, and appears in Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, due out this year, swears by “a vegan diet, no coffee and lots of water.” If you don’t possess her ascetic dedication, the new Diorskin Star collection, a range of foundations and concealers in 14 shades, aims to deliver comparable radiance.

It’s all thanks to a satisfyingly scientific-sounding Light Pulsion Complex—a formula comprising hollow silica beads designed to capture and diffuse light for that glowy effect, and immortelle, paquerette and licorice extracts that work in tandem to even out skin irregularities. The results promise nothing less than lens-ready flawlessness, so that you can share Portman’s disposition: “I am comfortable in my skin,” she says. dior.com.
