 BEAUTY PRESENTATION It felt so nice to back in Paris, each time I arrive at Gare de Lyon a wide smile apprears on my face. There’s just something about this city, it’s ambiance, history, imagery or even the architecture that feels magical. When we arrived at our hotel, we just had time to have lunch and quickly change before heading to the Yves Saint Laurent beauty presentation. Well I must say, there were many reasons to be impressed. The location, first of all, was light and divine (and matched quite well my outfit too by the way, so I liked it even more). With a bunch of other amazing bloggers such as Emilie, Fleur or Chiara we had the chance to discover YSL new make-up releases such as the new Teint Touche Eclat, which is a real revolution in trems of foundation. If you have already tried Touche Eclat itself you will know what I mean, well this is the foundation that will give this incredible light and glow effect, just like the Touche Eclat, by covering right what you need to cover and avoiding the cake effect. The most interesting thing about it is that it’s released in 40 different shades, therefore you are sure to find your prefect one. No more mistakes! Another great discovery was of course the new autumn beauty collection, made of khaki and burgundy shades. I will of course show you, more in details what it’s made of in a special make-up post. Finally, let’s talk about the Vernis à Lèvres. Perhaps have you already heard about this innovativ lipgloss-lipstick-lippaint, hard to name it since it’s all that put together. Well there’s even more colours coming out. We are for sure spoiled by these YSL make-up geniuses that do their best to make us look gorgeous. I had the chance to speak with Creative Director Make Up Yves Saint Laurent, Lloyd Simmonds. His vision of beauty fascinates me, he can see so many colours, shades and lights all around him. There is colours everywhere and they can all be interesting for make-up.

I decided to wear that day a whole Yves Saint Laurent make-up of course, I used Rouge Volupté ”Red Muse”, Terre Saharienne bronzing powder, summer 2012 pure chromatics edition n°8. I stayed in a very parisian mood and style, and decided to play on elegance, by associating the red lips to a white outfit. I have chosen this Zmilelee dress paired to my Zara blazer and high heels. Finally my Louis Vuitton Alma to finish the whole look. After the presentation we were off to dinner at the Ralph’s, a place to see that is for sure. There we enjoyed a lovely meal. This was for sure a lovely day, full of fun and beauty products to die for. Thanks again to Yves Saint Laurent for this incredible experience, and all the new discoveries.
