BEAUTY NEWS: LATEST MAKE-UP
YVES SAINT LAURENT Swimming Pool collection is designed to give a luminous healthy glow, complemented by a hot summer colour palette.
Terre Saharienne Collector pressed powder comes in a python print inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Couture accessories. A transparent luminance is created and imperfections are blurred in a variety of 3 tonal harmonies: Tanned; Sunkissed; and Bronzed. With a forumula that is long-lasting and resistant to heat, it also has UV shield of SPF 12.
La Laque Couture La Vernitheque is Haute Couture for nails in coral, sand, and taupe. High-tech polymers give extreme shine, intense colour, rapid drying, and long-lasting hold. Enriched with Chilean rose oil and Calcium, the formula reinforces and protects the nails. Available in Corail Colisée (coral red), Taupe Rétro (glazed brown), Beige Léger (sandy beige), and Doré Orfèvre (gold lamé).
To get the looks created by Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Make-up Yves Saint Laurent, follow these steps:
The Golden Look: For bare, naturally sun-kissed skin, flush with Terre Saharienne, apply a marron glacé lip with Golden Gloss N° 52, and a touch of mascara.
A Shimmering Complexion: Erase dark areas and imperfections with Touche Éclat in a lighter tone to give luminosity. Brush on Terre Saharienne in the same shade as your facial and decollete skin tone. In place of blush and eye shadow, use a darker shade of Terre Saharienne.
Torrid Smokey Eyes: Apply colour from the base of the lashes, lighter toward the inner corners of the eyes, and darker toward the outer corners to make the eyes look wide open. Add a touch of pearl or gold on the inner corners of the eyes to illuminate them.
Electrifying Eyes: Trace a clean, graphic line at the base of the lashes with pen Dessin Du Regard N° 9. Coordinated with new Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof N° 4, the indigo shade intensifies the eyes.
Sensual Lips: Play with the textures and shades as you like. Sophisticated with Rouge Pur Couture Rouge Madras. Luminous with a touch of Golden Gloss sand or pearl. Layer the two for a seductive smile.
