Yves Saint Laurent, has always been a symbol for me of the modern and confident woman. This was the look I wanted to achieve with the new autumn look make-up collection. I wanted to stay close to the look created by Lloyd Simmonds, meaning the deep green smoky eye associated to bright red lips. I have always been sceptic about this colour combination, was a little scared of this ''chrismas tree'' effect (green and red both combined remind me a little of christmas parties and the sweatshirts my grandma used to make me, you know the ones with santa hats, baubles and candy canes...) but of course I was wrong (a little crazy to imagine that too) and Simmonds pushed the colour bounderies a little further. So I tried the look and started with the Pure Chromatics n°10 green pallette with a touch of the new YSL False Lash Effect Mascara which has got this original khaki shade to give my eye an intersting smoky green look. I used some of their special edition bronzer, under my cheek bones to draw an elegant line in order to frame my face. Finally, after applying a little dit of Dare To Glow in Naughty Pink illuminator I tried the new red colour which has the most amazing shade, and it contains, if you look carefully, some shades of magenta. I hope you will enjoy this beauty post, feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comment section, I am excited to know what you think about it!
