The Eye Collection 2019 // Chanel

BLURRY EYES: THE NEW EYE COLLECTION BY CHANEL

THE NEW EYE COLLECTION

Eyes make the first impression: they need to reflect a woman’s character and convey her nuances, to amplify her personality rather than mask it. For 2019, Lucia Pica — CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer — has created a collection inspired by female individuality and designed to encourage self-expression. 

It is not about covering them; it is about beautifying them,” reflects Lucia Pica. “I am very attracted to style and character. I feel like women should still look polished, just not too overly done and old-fashioned.” Accordingly, this new eye product collection allows women to express their own style and encourages spontaneous application.

THE NEW SECOND SKIN SMOKY

Inspired by the “blurry” effect, and based on the three pillars of CHANEL eye products (LES 4 OMBRES, STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF, LE VOLUME RÉVOLUTION DE CHANEL), Lucia Pica has created four universal harmonies with a distinctive colour signature for all women, regardless of their level of makeup expertise. Four ways to dress a look in the most personal and intuitive way, with ease and freedom.

Each palette’s elegant colour combinations can be endlessly mixed and layered, by varying and blending shades and finishes. Their blurry effect creates a foolproof “second skin smoky” look.

LUCIA PICA’s TIPS

LES 4 OMBRES: Playing with texture and finish ensures modern impact: when both lips and eyes are enhanced, keep the skin fresh for a contemporary finish. 

STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF: For an effortless but dramatic effect, apply the liner a little heavier and smoke out the colour using a small brush, blending out and upwards. Then, re-apply liner close to the lashes for extra depth and definition.

LE VOLUME REVOLUTION DE CHANEL: Apply extra mascara to the centre of the lashes, and remove a little from the outer edges, for a wide-eyed effect.

Luxuriant Haven-Summer Look 2019 by Tom Pecheux for YSL Beaute featuring Zoe Kravitz

LUXURIANT HAVEN

A hidden garden. Lush, verdant, yet suffocating. 
The heat entices, stupefies, then liberates.
Freeing the imagination, unleashing a new decadence. 
Until the garden is a playground of limitless colour, wild desires. 
A luxuriant haven.

“When you live between grey skies and grey concrete, you crave colours, and that is what this Summer Look is all about,” says Tom Pecheux, YSL Beauté Global Beauty Director. 
Inspired by the colors of Marrakech, a favorite of Mr. Saint Laurent and home  to a museum dedicated to the legendary designer, Tom Pecheux created a collection with vivid hues, warm tones and shimmery shades. 

From lime green to bright orange, the colors exude fiery intensity. Whatever the look you want to create, impressive or subtle, sophisticated or just for everyday, this collection defies the designations and demands to be worn.  

Zoë Kravitz, YSL Beauté’s World Ambassador for Makeup and Perfumes, fronts the new Yves Saint Laurent Luxuriant Haven Summer 2019 campaign created by photographer David Sims. “I wanted her eyes to look like tropical leaves…hypnotic, luscious…” says Tom Pecheux. 
Sensual and sophisticated, she perfectly reflects the theme of this makeup collection: luxuriant haven.

Tom Ford White Suede Collection

THE WHITE SUEDE COLLECTION

Tom Ford presents the TOM FORD PRIVATE BLEND WHITE SUEDE COLLECTION. Three distinct fragrances inspired by the endless possibilities of one of the most important elements in perfumery: the musk. 
Packaged in a similarly lighter fashion, the White Suede Collection is bottled in clear glass with white lids, a stark contrast to the dark glass lids used for Ford’s other scents. The limited-edition collection also includes three lipsticks and an eyshadow squad.

“My intention was to rely on the true beauty of musk, which is not heavy or ‘dirty’ at all, but does have a deep, imposing softness. The scent of pure musk is reminiscent of the scent of bare skin, ” says Tom Ford. “What I have found is that there is such a range of shades and tones in the musk family that a single fragrance cannot express its character.”

The White Suede Collection symbolizes the many facets of musk expressed by three fragrances; White Suede, Jasmine Musk and Mask Pure – contemporary interpreting the strong yang energy of the South with harmonious balance and atmospheric softness. Inspired by its history in the highlands around China, the luxuriously addictive musk in these three fragrances evokes the texture and feel around their notes in their lightest composition. The result is three distinct fragrances, each of which has its own unique character by sending a powerful message of bold desire.

WHITE SUEDE

Wild, charming and irresistible; for Tom Ford Leather and Suede have a powerfully addictive pull. In this elegant musk fragrance, he captures the primal essence of these supple, sensual materials, giving them beautiful new dimension with a surprising musk medley that is heightened with velvety rose and warm amber.

Luxurious, lightweight and infused with the legendary Miracle Broth™, Sheer Pressed Powder nourishes the skin while keeping it flawless.

A glowing new chapter begins with an ultra-luminous collection that seamlessly blends soft color, healing hydration, and Miracle Broth™.

This was the irresistible combination that inspired La Mer to create the Skincolor collection. Harnessing ingredients including the highly revered Miracle Broth™, La Mer blends the benefits of their creams and serums into a new multitasking line of makeup products called Skincolor de la Mer™. The result is a healthy, flawless brightness – the epitome of eternal beauty.

La Mer Sheer Pressed Powder

THE POWDER

Soft and velvety to the touch, this portable perfector creates a healthy, matte finish, seamlessly blending for buildable coverage. Formulated with Miracle Broth™ and raw ocean clay, skin stays comfortable and shine-free throughout the day. Light-reflecting pigments create a soft blurring effect for a multidimensional look that’s matte—never flat.

 

The new product comes in a compact form and is easy to bring with you wherever you are so you can touch up your face while you’re on-the-go.  In four different shades — translucent, light, medium, and medium deep — its intended use is to be dusted over the face to set the rest of your makeup in place, but can also be used to touch up your skin throughout the day.

Celebrity makeup artists and La Mer ambassadors, Mary Phillips (whose clients include Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen) and Patrick Ta (who does Emily Ratajowski and Gigi Hadid’s makeup), share with us their tips of how they use the new Sheer Pressed Powder on their clients and themselves.

MARY PHILLIPS

“I like to set everything, neck included, with powder, and then throughout the day, I like to re-powder the T-zone and let the natural highlight gleam through,” Phillips shared.

Phillips suggests applying the powder in feather-like upward strokes or buffing circular motions. “The application doesn’t have to involve a whole lot of intensity. Think ballerina, not tap dancer,” Philips said.

PATRICK TA

“A bit of The Pressed Powder in Translucent under the eyes really brightens that area and sets concealer,” said Patrick Ta.

I am always mixing colours to get what I want. With this collection, I believe I have created many of the key pieces that you really need in your make-up kit. As a woman who likes to wear make-up, this is exactly what I want. Now I am excited to share it with women everywhere.”

SAVAGE ESCAPE

FEEL THE HEAT OF LOVE

She sits atop a beat-up car; bare-foot and free; the wind blowing through her hair as if whispering “Come on, let’s go!”.

Tattoos, spiritual emblems picked up from obscure places she’s visited along the way, sparkle in the heat of the desert sun. Her eyes are rimmed with shadowy colour, challenging others to peer deep into her soul.

Escape is a state of mind: dare to take the journey.

 

LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES

A solar radiance.
A new definition of natural makeup.
A shine-free healthy-looking bronzed glow that feels truly weightless on the skin.

Introducing LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES, a barely-there powder that feels as smooth as marble when first touched. Applied to the face with its very own brush accessory, it creates a flawless complexion, naturally enhanced, with a soft, brightening effect.

A BRONZING FINISH LIKE NO OTHER

Once you’ve tried LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES, you just can’t get enough. A shine-free finish adds a touch of natural-looking colour that is smooth and radiant, giving a flawless finish.

Three stone shades suit all complexions and can be used on bare skin, over foundation, or in a shade darker than your natural shade for a more tanned effect, or for contouring. The brush accessory is perfectly sized to fit in a handbag and is designed for all-over application
or for more precise contouring, bronzing or sculpting. Ready to hit the road!

COUTURE PALETTE COLLECTOR

The highway to freedom.
The dreams of the desert.
The secrets of an adventurous spirit.

Reflecting the harmonious synergy between earth and sky, Couture Palette Collector Savage Escape for eyes ties the bright blue of a hot summer horizon
to the dusky browns and pinks of the sunset hitting the hills. A testimony to the spirit of the road trip.

Encased in a compact reminiscent of suede and the colour of sun-bleached blue jeans, the palette is instantly recognisable. The iconic YSL ‘Cassandre’ logo, this time emblazoned in rose gold and styled like
a Native American emblem, evokes a modern trailblazer; a woman embracing her destiny, wherever it lies.

YSL Savage Escape Summer Look 2016

FULL METAL SHADOW

Fast. Furious. Facing the uproar of life and racing through.

YSL Beauté introduces two new shades to Full Metal Shadow. The same 16 hours’ worth of full colour pay-off. The same high pigment water based solution that can be applied easily, quickly with just a stroke of the applicator. The same lush, glossy metallic sheen, achieved thanks to YSL Beauté’s unique Metallic Lustre Technology.

And a brand new high voltage glamorous look. Powerful. Luminous. Chasing the grey away and creating a mirage of light. Inspired by the raw blue of denim and the copper studs on a jean pocket.

N°11 Bonnie Copper
A gorgeous gold, for a glimmer over

the entire lid, or teamed with the navy blue for a dramatic effect.

N°12 Blue Clyde
A powerful addition to a summer makeup look; bringing a new energy when worn by itself or paired with the gold.

GLOSS VOLUPTÉ

A metallic shine. A flash of ruby pink.
A natural fullness in 3-D.
Two new lip glosses that bring a sensuality and sparkle to any road trip.

N°54 Aurora Pink
A pale pink to reflect the colour of dawn over coppery mountains.

N°55 Rose Eldorado
Like sunset on a desert horizon, a vibrant pink with ruby undertones. 

LA LAQUE COUTURE

The tension of summer.
Deep, dark blue like night in the desert. Warm, sandy pink like metallic rocks. Play up the contrasts.

YSL Beauté introduces two new shades of nail lacquer to add a touch of dramatic tension.

N°71 Savage Pink
Like the marbled, granular flecks of pink in granite, a pale rose with a subtle shimmer.

N°72 Night Escape
Imagine an endless night, the romance of sleeping under an open sky, captured in a deep metallic blues. 

COUTURE SKIN JEWELS

Energy, rich with stories of adventure.
A metallic symbol.
The enjoyment of a life lived to the fullest.

Expressing a wild beauty and an extreme sensuality that has become synonymous with the spirit of the YSL woman, the Couture Skin Jewels offer three deluxe temporary tattoo sheets.

Golden as the sun, they grab the light just as they grab the imagination. Open the envelope. Choose from a variety of styles and wear them wherever the mood takes you: an iconic YSL ‘Cassandre’ logo in gold or black; an elegant cuff that looks wild yet sensual when worn on the wrist; individual motifs for fingers or feet.

24 hours of play, passion, and then? The chance to begin all over again.

SHOP THE COLLECTION

Golden sands; billowing clouds, Hot blue skies; a trail of brown dust in her wake. Burning up the road, not caring where she’s headed. Until the sun goes down. The sensation of freedom.
SAVAGE ESCAPE, a road trip to colour. Feeling the wind through her hair under the sun; Sleeping under a cluster of stars. The landscape is a part of her. She says goodbye to all she knows; Until the next adventure.

 

 Interview with Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Makeup YSL Beaute

How did you achieve the dramatic eye look in the ad campaign starring Cara Delevingne?
I used the Full Metal Shadows, which I personally feel are a great modern way to do eye makeup. You take a swipe of the sponge applicator using the gold along the roots of the lash on the top lid, then smudge with your fingers, and leave to dry. To get a strong sense of contrast, I did the same thing on the lower lashes, using the blue shade. Add mascara, and that’s it! What I love about this look is that you don’t need to be a makeup artist to do it, and yet it is still directional.

What makes LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES so different to any other bronzer?

They are completely weightless, so you don’t see any trace of product on the face, just colour. It suits all complexions as you can apply it on top of foundation to add life to it, or directly to bare skin.  It’s very versatile too – a quick brush of powder over the cheeks and nose gives a healthy glow to the skin, but you can also brush it all over the face, neck and collar-bone in a darker shade,
for an all-over tanned effect. The whole point of summer is to ease up on things – including your makeup routine – and I love the way this leaves the beauty of your skin to shine through.

Can LES SAHARIENNES BRONZING STONES be used for contouring and sculpting the face?
Absolutely – the texture is so fine that it works really well. Just use one of the shades that’s darker than your skin tone, then with a narrow brush, sweep it underneath your cheekbones and up towards the ear. Repeat under your chin and jawline, brushing and blending it downwards towards the neck. Next, brush on to your temples and at the root of the hairline. The overall effect is to accen- tuate bone structure and enhance your features. Try and avoid the temptation to overly correct though – in my experience, sculpting the nose works for pictures but it’s easy to get wrong for real life.

How can you wear the two shades of blue in the COUTURE PALETTE COLLECTOR SAVAGE ESCAPE in a modern way?
The dark blue is modern in itself, because it’s not too highly pigmented. Just as everyone looks good in jeans, everyone can wear this shade of blue. Apply it to both upper and lower lash lines and blend it outwards for a touch of drama. The paler blue has a slightly more shimmery texture and can be worn as a highlighter or a wash of colour. I particularly like it when it’s applied to the inner corner of the lid or in the centre of the upper eye lid. It gives a lift to the eye and adds a touch of shimmer, which isn’t difficult to wear.

How did you use the tattoos on Cara Delevingne?
I love these tattoos because they look great on the skin. They’re easy to use – you just cut out whichever bit of the tattoo you want, place it on the skin, and then press with a wet sponge until the image has transferred – seconds rather than minutes! We used them on Cara as if they were jewellery, on her fingers and feet, like rings and bracelets. They’re fun and easy!

Victoria Beckham teams up with Estee Lauder

After conquering the world of clothes and accessories, fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is teaming up with Estée Lauder for a limited edition makeup line that will be released this fall. 

Victoria Beckham, even from her days as Spice girl, had a distinct makeup look. Smoky eyes and nude lips.  For her own Victoria Beckham line, the designer usually prefers her models to sport clean, minimalist makeup, keeping the focus strictly on her sleek designs while she adapts her own personal style to the needs and desires of the international women who swear by the label’s luxurious and flattering garments. 

The style icon and acclaimed fashion designer announced today her partnership with Estée Lauder to create a limited edition makeup collection. Set to launch in September 2016, no details on what exactly will be on offer has been released. What we do know, it will be at select retailers, Victoria Beckham stores as well as esteelauder.com and victoriabeckham.com.

 

 

Victoria Beckham teams up with Estee Lauder

Beckham herself was thrilled about the announcement, posting to her 9.8 million Twitter followers. In her press announcement Beckham said, “I am thrilled to be launching this limited edition makeup collection with Estée Lauder. The whole process has been both inspiring and eye-opening — from going back and revisiting the Estée Lauder archives, through to working on the product with the Estée team, this feels like the perfect makeup partnership for me and my brand. I had long admired Estée Lauder the woman, and the powerful brand that she created, so I am excited to offer both of our customers this makeup range and play a small part in her vision for women.” It seems the fit is ideal on both sides as the brand has pointed to her entrepreneurship, passion for beauty and acute understanding of what women want as reasons for partnering with Beckham.

THE INSPIRATION

Juicy Shaker echoes two emblematic Lancôme products: the Shaker, one of the fabulous bijou lipsticks imagined by the brand’s founder, Armand Petitjean, in the earliest years. Created in 1946, when cocktails were making their mark as symbols of glamour everywhere, with a daringly avant-garde silhouette for its time, it inspired the name and the very concept of Juicy Shaker.

Lancôme’s other inspiration was of course Juicy Tubes, that iconic gloss – so often imitated, but never duplicated – which changed the rules of make-up in 2000 with its fun spirit, ease of use and zesty fragrances.

Heritage and innovation: the whole Lancôme philosophy is embodied.

THE INNOVATION

The Juicy Shaker texture literally fuses with lips on application, thanks to four precious ingredients: oils with complementary properties, which instantly offer lips a smooth and plumped-up look, alongside dazzling shine and absolutely no sticky sensation. Thanks to its original biphasic formula, Juicy Shaker combines comfort with the color impact of perfectly dosed pigments in a multitude of vibrant shades with an adjustable finish.

The new sensorial applicator is velvety, supple and soft to the touch. In combination with the exclusive Juicy Shaker formula, it ensures the quintessence of gentleness to leave lips pampered, soft and supple with each successive application.

Juicy Shaker comes in 15 different shades each one with its own addictive scent.

APPLICATION TIPS by LLOYD SIMMONDS

“The transparent pigments in this formula create a ‘barely-there’ impression on the skin. Its glow gives the illusion of health and vitality, tricking the eye – and the wearer – into feeling and looking better.”

“The Y shape reservoir is deep enough to withstand a few drops, but don’t fill it all the way up immediately. Add just one droplet at a time – less is always more when it comes to foundation.”

“Begin by making circular movements on the face with the brush, massaging the foundation into the skin, starting from the centre of the face and moving outwards, spreading it evenly.“

“For any areas that need a bit of extra attention, tap into the skin with a stippling motion to deliver more product where you need it – perhaps around the nose, chin and forehead. Keep the layer as thin as possible to help unify the colour.”
