YSL has just announced that celebrity makeup artist Tom Pecheux will become its new Creative Director of Makeup replacing Lloyd Simmonds. Tom is well known in the fashion world and designs the catwalk beauty looks for dozens of brands during Paris, London, Milan and New York Fashion Weeks. He also works closely with a number of high profile actresses in Hollywood. He created one of my favourite makeup collections for Estee Lauder years ago called Violet Underground. He had four or five lipstick transformers that created a metallic look on lips – something we’re seeing this year. So it will be fascinating to see what he does with the YSL beauty brand which is one of the hottest in the world at the moment. Both YSL and Dior are riding a wave of popularity thanks to great innovation and clever colour stories.
This week, I’m celebrating YSL on Instagram with the elegant Mon Paris fragrance and a handful of edgy makeup pieces. This #401 Red Vernis A Levres Vinyl Cream Creamy Stain is an ideal blue-red. And the Eye Duo Smoker makes creating a smoky eye simple and foolproof.
I’m giving away this set on Instagram. To enter, simply follow @davelackie on Instagram and tag a friend who loves beauty and fragrance. Here is a direct link to enter on my Instagram page. I’ll draw one name at random on June 2nd from all those who enter. (one entry per person)
