BEAUTY the Guide - November 2017

YS L ’ s D az z ling L ight s BEAUTYTREND BRAND: Yves Saint Laurent Beauté CITY: Paris LAUNCH: Dazzling Lights Holiday Look 2017 BACKSTORY: YSL is the buzz-worthy brand in Asia right now and that excitement has rippled around the world in the past 12 months. Last year’s holiday collection completely sold out in a couple of days. That’s because two hugely influential blog- gers in Asia posted stories about it. That was all it took to cause a sensation at YSL counters. Expect a similar response this year thanks to a beautifully executed makeup collection with firework motifs and flattering shades. This is the brand to watch for holiday. STAR PRODUCT: The multi-use palette allows you to highlight your cheeks with a rosy pink blush infused with platinum pearls for a seductive holi- day glow. Four shades of sparkling effervescent eye colours range from silver-grey to rose gold. And two hues of lip colour finish off the look: a light rose and a deep red. It is classic YSL. COLLECTOR ITEMS: You’ll notice the Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks and Touche Éclat are embossed with a fireworks motif that looks particularly impressive when pulled out of a bag at a holiday dinner or party.
