Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Collection for Holiday 2011

I am very happy to show you my absolutely favourite holiday 2011 makeup collection, the gorgeous tuxedo inspired collection by YSL.

This is what Yves Saint Laurent  himself once said:  “ If I were to keep just one item of clothes, it would be the tuxedo…” I have to admit that YSL (women’s) tuxedo is a dream of mine, I hope to get it one day.

No wonder that Lloyd Simmonds was inspired by tuxedo and created this stunning collection. This is what he says about it:

“Black is a color. Without black there is no line. At Yves Saint Laurent, black is rebel, potent, yet all so elegant. It is alive, it is the supreme emotion. Its force comes from the interior. It is light itself.”

Collection includes:

 Face

Palette Blanc Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

The white tuxedo. The complexion illuminator palette. Shimmering silver, shimmering pink, shimmering violet. Three white hues delicately lit up with precious pearls, catching the light like a magnet to give an absolute glow effect.

Eyes

Palette Noir Terriblement, £39.00/ €53.00

Black velvet, black silk, black moiré, black lamé, white satin.

Inspired by the tuxedo, the Noir Terriblement and the Blanc Terriblement palettes both celebrate the emblematic spirit of evening clothes that moves effortlessly throughout time. Nestling inside a beautiful gold case, adorned by a pleated belt and embroidered with the Yves Saint Laurent logo. It can be worn around the wrist like a bracelet, a nocturnal fetish.

 Ombres Duolumières, £28.00/  €40.00

  • N° 39 Gold Lamé/Velvet Black
  • N° 41 Silver Moiré/Black Flannel
