YSL’s “Street & I” Spring Collection

YSL’s “Street & I” Spring 2017 Collection

For spring 2017, Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director of Makeup at YSL is taking to the streets…literally. He studied graffiti art in Los Angeles, Paris, New York, London and Shanghai and observed how women are expressing themselves through art and fashion. He then translated that into an edgy and colourful limited edition makeup collection that arrives on counters this month.

ysl I have a blush on you compactThe star product is the Face Palette Collector – I Have A Blush On You that is best described as a colourful crush of orange blush. Sweep it on for a hint of youthful colour or layer for a bold fashion look. The compact itself will sell out in days thanks to the graffiti-style design.

ysl keep an eye on me eye paletteComplementing the blush palette is one for eyes called “Couture Palette Collector – Keep An Eye On Me.” What I like about Lloyd is he pairs unexpected colours in his palettes. These aren’t shades you’d immediately think to wear together – but once you see them on someone, the effect is forward and edgy. This particular palette features grey, pinks and oranges meant to intrigue the urban artist. A shimmering pale pink was created to bring light under the brow; a hard city grey for lining or creating a smoky eye; a flash of orange and duo of pinks to add a ‘pop’ of interest.

Ask any YSL pro makeup artist and they’ll tell you one of their favourite products is the Dessin Du Regard eye pencils. Instantly sharpen your line, smudge and blend where needed. Apply each shade by itself, or with its partner to create a strong opaque mono-colour. Or go for a harmony of pink teamed with urban anthracite.

When I’ve interviewed New York Beauty Directors, invariably their list of favourite products includes YSL Rouge Volupte Shine. This season, there are four new shades that are designed to be mixed and matched.

ysl rouge volupteNo. 59 in Fuchsia Jumpsuit, a pop-art pink

ysl rouge volupteNo. 60 in Rose Marceau, a fresh coral

Adding a dab of Gloss Volupte lip gloss will instantly add dimension to your lip colour.

Simmonds has always paid special attention to the final details of any makeup look: nail lacquer. And spring 2017 is no exception. This month he plays with contrasts: orange and asphalt grey.

A shock of white, what could be more unexpected? It’s an ultra-fresh and polished look that balances the pinks and oranges in the lip and eye makeup.

    What a stunning collection! I’m so happy to see BLUSH making a comeback to the makeup scene. It’s been kinda ignored the past decade or so. This YSL blush is so beautiful and versatile. I’d definitely use it on my cheeks as well as eyes. I can’t wait to see it in-person!
