Wear whatever you dare – but make it brilliant, original, stylish. That is the beauty advice coming from YSL Beaute this season with the debut of its Night 54 limited edition makeup collection. It’s inspired by legendary New York nightclub Studio 54 and its hedonistic and ever-stylish culture.
“It’s a hothouse of beautiful people, shimmering on the dancefloor. Smoke machines, disco balls, laser shows – it’s a giddy epicenter that lasts ’til dawn – and plays in your head until Saturday night comes round again,” reads the official press release for the collection. Here’s how to capture the look:
Star product: Couture Variation Lips & Eyes Collector Edition
This slim-line palette contains a selection of fashionable shades for lips and eyes. Five lip colours range from nude beige to chic coral to burgundy red with satin, matte and glossy finishes. Five eye shades range from metallic nude to sparkly deep violet allowing for a multitude of different looks.
There is a new specially designed double-ended brush – one end angled for lining or shading the eyes and the other gently rounded for easy lip application. There is even a large mirror in the lid.
YSL is promising a fool-proof eyeliner that makes creating a graphic, defined, liquid eyeliner look easy to achieve. An extra slim felt tip pen enables precise application with one stroke. It lasts all day and night without smudging. There are two limited edition shades this season: No7 Argent Maximal (shimmering silver) and No8 Bronze Excessif (golden bronze). Create a thicker line, drawing it upwards at the end for a modern-day cat-eye look.
