IG Live YSL Beauty: Mother’s Day Special

Don’t miss today’s IG Live Beauty Talk «Mother’s Day Special» on my account @sandrascloset at 6.30 pm CET. I will go live with YSL Beauty National Makeup Artist UK Fred Letailleur @fredletailleur. With his expertise, I will create a fresh make-up look only with my fingers, will apply some lifting techniques, with the new YSL Beauty S/S 2021 makeup products on my daughter Anouk who is back from Boston for a few months. Best Mother’s Day gift ever!

Fred Letailleur

It has been a crazy morning so far, as the live talk was supposed to be with the YSL Beauty National Makeup Artist Switzerland Abdel Zouitina @abdel.zouitina. Unfortunately, Abdel woke up sick and Fred jumped in to help. We had a lovely morning training and I can promise you, the beauty talk is worth watching. He has been with YSL Beauty for 9 years and has been working in the beauty industry for over 23 years. His work was featured in international fashion magazines such as Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Instyle, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and he created the makeup looks for celebrities such as Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dun, Kim Cattral, Sadie Frost, Eva Herzigova, Mischa Barton, Patricia Arquette , Ines de la Fressange, Catherine Deneuve, just to name a few.

«YSL Beauty is truly about beauty empowerment. It’s embracing all forms of beauty from natural, understated beauty to setting a more contrasted statement. It just merges perfectly the aspect of creativity with luxury. Yves Saint Laurent was always inspired by art as a form of inspiration. Like him, I always like to push it a little further to challenge beauty while respecting at the same time the natural beauty of a woman’s features.» – Fred Letailleur

Here is a summary of the products we use. To shop the products, just click on the highlighted product description. I am sure your mother would be delighted to receive such a gift.

The new S/S 2021 YSL Beauty makeup look is called POPPIN’ FRESH and features pastel and milky shades inspired by ice-cream colors. Playful hues perfect to start the warm weather season.

FACE & EYE PALETTE COLLECTOR
This limited edition palette is the perfect make-up accessory for summer. Reminiscent of a Saint Laurent clutch bag, it features 10 shades that can be used to dress the eyes.
Use the trendy pale rosy purple and silver shades as highlighters to bring light to the face and eyes.
Use the beige, soft pink, and rosy pink shades as blush to sculpt the face.

TOUCHE ÉCLAT
The iconic illuminating pen for over 25 years. It is 8 hours of beauty sleep in one click.
To illuminate, apply to the upper area of the cheekbones and the top of the brow bone. Create a three-dimensional effect by highlighting the bridge of the nose and adding a radiant touch to the middle of the forehead. Lightly trace the contours of the lips to define their shape and create the illusion of volume.
To remove shadows, draw a line over the smile lines to create a radiant light and smooth skin effect. You can also apply it under the eyes and along their inner corner to remove eye area shadows.

MASCARA VOLUME EFFET FAUX CILS THE CURLER
Say bye-bye to your lash curler. This amazing mascara features a bi-material brush to volumize, lift, curl and define your lashes.
1. Volumize with fiber brush
Using the black bristles on the concave side with the loaded reservoir, apply the mascara from the base of the lashes to the tip.
2. Lift & define with the elastomer comb
Using the pink comb, push the lashes upward at the base and holding for a moment before combing upwards to separate and lengthen.

ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE
143 Chill Toffee
and 144 Peachy Light
Melting shine with fresh and vibrant color.
Apply directly on the lips for a moment of pure pleasure. Dab the color instead of applying it in one stroke for a super natural and plumbing effect. You can add several layers to intensify the color.

LIBRE EAU DE TOILETTE
The final touch to the new summer look is a spritz of the newly launched Libre Eau de Toilette by Yves Saint Laurent, a floral fragrance created by Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim.
Top notes: Lavender, Mandarin Orange and Bergamot
Middle notes: Orange Blossom, Jasmine Tea and Jasmine
Base notes: Musk, Vanilla and Ambergris.

See you in a few hours at 6.30 pm CET on IG Live!

I always loved playing dress up with Anouk when she was little. So for me, it is the best Mother’s Day treat to do her makeup again, this time of course in a more refined way. Hope that you will enjoy our session.

LoL, Sandra

YSL Volupté Tint-In-Balm

YSL Spring Look 2017 – The Street and I

ysl-spring-2017-the-streets-and-i-collectionysl_spring_look_2017ysl-spring-2017-makeup-streetart-collection

Having been a huge Saint Laurent fan over the past seasons, I was curious how Anthony Vaccarello’s debut at the French Maison would be. Obviously, it was ’80s glamour for the party girls. For the show, blazing against the night sky, was the famous YSL logo with a Y back at home that went missing under Hedi Slimane.

ysl-logoThe logo is back…

Vaccarello even took the logo into the fabulous stiletto heels (love those). Cathy Horyn of NYMag made me laugh, she said that in this case YSL stands for Young Parisian Designer’s experiment.

You definitely cannot go wrong with the brand’s Spring 2017 makeup collection, so-called «The Street and I». A piece of YSL and definitely lighter on your wallet. As you might have already guessed from the mood photos, this collection is inspired by graffiti, music, Los Angeles, New York, London, Shanghai and Paris. The colors are vibrant, modern. If you are loving orange than you definitely can’t miss out on this collection. Take a closer look! It is in stores now.

YSL Beauty – Le Cushion Encre de Peau

bg-section-mobile

Feels like a feather; fuses like an ink. Master of foundation innovation, YSL Beauty rewrites the rules with its first ink-in-cushion application and takes beauty’s most talked about cushion tool one step further. An inkwell for skin that paints a long-lasting, fresh, luminous shine-free finish with high coverage. I am in love!

LE CUSHION ENCRE DE PEAU provides the perfect dose for one application. Unlike fingers, the pillow delivers instant freshness alongside an even finish. Combine the intelligent pillow pick-up with a pioneering air-filled design, and you will experience YSL Beauty’s must-have smart skin revolution.

2016 seems like the year when all beauty brands are coming up with their own version of cushion foundation but YSL’s one is definitely the It-acccessory for beauty addicts!
