Anthony Vaccarello delivered another edgy collection with super short shorts, sparkly jackets, statement hats, riding boots and leather blazers that were inspired by Yves Saint Laurent’s Ballets Russes – the Russian collection.
Makeup had to match the dark modernity and Tom Pecheux created a powerful and ultra feminine look with some models sporting a striking geometric eye design. Below Pecheux shares his inspiration behind Saint Laurent FW18 beauty look.
Where did you get your inspiration from?
This look is the result of a creative exchange with Anthony. It is the natural continuation of what Saint Laurent has done in the past and yet it is also an evolution, a look into the future. Think of it as an additional stone to a dream castle.
Can you talk us through how to achieve it?
Use Or Rouge Huile Voluptueuse to prep the skin and Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow to add luminosity. Then the new foundation Touche Eclat All-In-One Flow for perfected natural coverage. The lips moisturised with Volupte Night Rehab Lip Masl. Finally, after curling the lashes, I have created a sophisticated, punk, graphic eye look extended towards the outer corner of the eye with the new Couture Chalks – Le Noir from the Fall Look 2018. Powerful cat eye brightened in the inner coners by a grey silver eyeshadow from the Couture Palette No1 Tuxedo.
What is your must have product from this Fall makeup look?
Definitely, the Couture Chalks.
What makes this look a YSL signature?
Whilst respecting women’s individuality, this look shows their beauty at it’s best. It has all the power of the YSL woman.
