“These looks were created for the YSL woman who is multifaceted, versatile, and not boxed in to one particular look. The concept for the makeup for the show was to create several makeup looks that would show this.” – Tom Pecheux.
1. Where did you get your inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from Anthony Vaccarello, the clothes, the collection and the Saint Laurent women, of course.
2. From there, how do you create the makeup?
After we meet with Anthony, I try to figure out how to interpret what he has in his mind. It’s like putting the pieces together in a puzzle and then creating a face from the makeup I would like to play with.
3. What makes this look a YSL signature ?
The three looks are very YSL, because the YSL woman has a very versatile face when it comes to makeup. She likes to be natural but powerful at the same time. She likes to be herself but also to be expressive with a strong makeup look.
4. What does gold represent for you?
Gold is YSL! To me gold is not only a colour, it’s a metal, it’s money, it’s a fever, the gold fever. When I think of YSL, I think straight away of gold as it’s our packaging too!
And it’s what Monsieur Saint Laurent has been playing with for decades, so gold… It’s us.
For all the looks, we begin with a natural base. We start with Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow, to give a satin finish to the skin. Then we use All Hours Foundation Stick, as a concealer, to erase any imperfections, and the Couture Highlighter N°1, to give a glow finish. For the natural look, we then add a touch of Rouge Volupté Shine N°42 Baume Midi Minuit on the lips.
For the red look – the dramatic look – I decided to create powerful red matte lips, using Rouge Pur Couture The Slim N°10 Corail Antinomique, paired with very graphic black eyes using Couture Kajal.
For the finale look – the gold look – I went for a very powerful statement, with glossy gold eyes.
All over the upper eyelid, we used the Full Metal Shadow N°17 Gold Source and the Couture Eyeliner N°9 Or Radical. We mix them together to create a sophisticated and cool look.
