BACK TO THE COLD Ever since I have discovered Yves Saint Laurent’s make-up line have I been absolutely crazy over it, especially the lipsticks of course (you know what a crazy lipstick addict I am right…) which have the most gorgeous packaging and such a wide range of colour choice. I’ve had the chance a couple of months ago to be invited in Paris for an YSL press conference to discover some of their new products, a part from the the new foundation which you will be able to hear about really soon, I was able to have a sneek peak of the upcoming Autumn look created by the highly fashionable and talented Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director of Make Up by Yves Saint Laurent. The collection reminded me a modern city, such as New York for example in the middle of the autumn season, with dead leafs on the concrete, and their reflection in the sky scrapers. I am saying so especially because of the pure chromatics pallete which has this vivid silver shade combined with greene ones. Our stay at the Grischa hotel in Davos with weekend4two was the perfect occasion to make the pictures, since the interior was very autumn/winter looking, far away from the hot summer in Geneva. Also to mention that our room was so well decorated we needed to take advantage of this occasion to create this YSL look. I really loved the bronze shades in the living room and the fur details on the bed and couch (please note that all the fur you can see in these pictures is fake, none of it is actual animal fur).

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!

Nice makeup babe! I love all these photos


Beautiful! I love the bold red lips

But please please tell me, that it’s the lighting that causes one eye to be darker than the other one. Because it looks very uneven, especially in that last two pictures.

so classy! love it so much!

I love the makeup, but also love the ring. Can you tell me where is it from? Regards from Portugal

First photo could be used as the new YSL campaign.

Just Rock and Rose

So beautiful, you look like a princess:) I love the green eye-shadow!

I’ve started collecting YSL makeup, and I’ve become a little bit obsessed – the beautiful gold packaging looks stunning in my makeup bag, as well as the products being pretty amazing! The Chanel, YSL, Clinique and Benefit I have in there make a really great visual mix.

thinking “wow”, like drama queen:)

This is very cool. Did you base your outfit (which looked awesome, by the way) on the Le Smoking suit?

Dear, it is actually simple hair spray (anyone you have at home). You brush you hair back and put tons of hair spray on it and there you go!

The eyeliner is from essence, costs a couple of francs and is fantastic. Use it everyday!

Amazing photos! You look gorgeous!!! I say it all the time, but I do mean it.

YSL is truly one of the best make-up brands ever. I work for L’Oreal (who owns the YSL cosmetics) which means I get their stuff for almost for free and their products really do what it says on the tin! Gorgeous luxurious packaging is also a cherry on the top! :)
