Lloyd Simmonds is taking us on a holiday Safari this year with his dramatic and edgy Christmas collection for YSL. The pro makeup artist pairs gold with smoky black, tawny browns and intense red for a look that is equally audacious and elegant. At the heart of the collection is the Palette Collector – Wild Edition, a black leather case draped in gold leopard print and adorned with the legendary “Cassandre” logo. An elastic tie bearing a black satin tassle, as a nod to Mr. Saint Laurent and his Oriental inspirations, opens and closes with delicate femininity. The harmony of seven shades and three brush applicators allows for a myriad of festive looks – from subtle to dramatic. For eyes, there are four couture shadows: dazzling black, iridescent bronze, shimmery gold and a silver highlighter (perfect for the inner eye). A pink blush adds just the right amount of glow to cheeks. And a glossy pink Rouge Volupte Sheer Candy and Rouge Pur Couture Fuchsia dress lips.
For fans of the remarkable Touch Eclat, there is a Wild Edition boasting a leopard print design. In just a few strokes, the applicator brush leaves a veil of iridescent finish that illuminates and enhances facial features and contours. Applied beneath the eye brows, on the cheekbones or on the corner of the eyes, it erases all signs of fatigue. The complexion is instantly illuminated. It’s available in three shades: Radiance, Ivory and Peach.
Supermodel Cara Delevingne once again stars in the ad campaign wearing edgy cat-eye makeup and a bold lip. It’s the perfect look for New Year’s Eve.
