I wore this look yesterday, because I figured it was time for a brighter look :) I did a neutral look on Sunday for my sister’s birthday dinner (happy 18th!), but I’ll post that tomorrow!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Gilded Green pigment (cool pastel green), Talent Pool eyeshadow (teal), Deep Truth eyeshadow (dark blue), Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow (gray with gold flecks), Femme-fi eyeshadow (cool neutral), Mystery kohl power (teal-black), Lancome Oscillation mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Nuance mineralize blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: Style It Up lipstick (creamy nude), C-Thru lipglass (nude)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Gilded Green = Lucky Jade; Talent Pool = Shimmermoss; Smoke & Diamonds = Silver Ring; Femme-fi = Shroom; Mystery = Minted + Smolder; Nuance = Peachykeen; Style It Up = Cherish

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Gilded Green pigment all over the lid as the base with the 239. All over the lid, apply Talent Pool eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Deep Truth to the outer edge of the lid and dragging into the crease. Darken the outer crease with Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Mystery kohl power on lower lash line, and black mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Nuance using the 129. Apply Cherish lipstick to lips, and then top with C-Thru lipglass for color and shine.

2008: The make-up collections pay tribute to the couturier and celebrate thirty years of beauty, taking inspiration from the house’s legendary icons. The starring chapters for Autumn/Winter 2008/2009: the tuxedo and color.

The tuxedo. A diaphanous complexion. Deep, deep eyes – metallic and smoky. Shocking pink lips. A provocative, intriguing allure. With the divine brushstrokes of Val Garland, Artistic Adviser for YSL Make-Up, Coco Rocha personifies the Yves Saint Laurent woman – feline and mysterious.

The tuxedo, a fashion icon of the Yves Saint Laurent universe created in 1966, is the standard of the masculine-feminine style. Emblematic of the collection, two limited edition palettes – for eyes and for the complexion – offer a free, graphic interpretation, between light and shadow.

New Ombres 5 Lumieres reinterpret the Yves Saint Laurent palette and take a monochrome stand to make an elegant, subtle color play with fashion. Four colors – dark, iridescent and satiny shades plus a highlighter – in each of the six compacts give eyes natural-looking or spectacular depth.

As the signature touch, the lips are inimitable in shocking pink. Autumn/Winter ’08/’09 introduces dark, spicy, fuchsia, ROUGE PURE SHINE N 31 Tuxedo Pink and the tamer ROUGE PUR N 141 Pink Satin.

With this collection, the following also make their debut:

  • Blush Variation N 17 Silky Nude
  • Everlong Mascara N 6 Ever Green
  • Eyeliner Moire N 9 Emerald Reflections
  • Fard A Levres Rouge Pur N 140 Purple Velvet
  • Rouge PurE Shine N 30 Shimmering Pink
  • Golden Gloss N 14 Golden Purple
  • Golden Gloss N 15 Golden Berry
  • La Laque N 35 Tuxedo Grey
  • La Laque N 36 Rich Coffee

Availability on counter is September 1st, but product information will pop on www.yslbaeutyus.com in mid-August.
