YSL Beauty Challenge

To celebrate John Lewis’ collaboration with YSL they asked me and a few other beauty bloggers to create a look inspired by YSL’s catwalk looks. I chose these two YSL catwalk looks to take inspiration from as I love the heavy eyebrow and eyeliner as well as the pretty pink lips, exactly the sort of makeup looks which attract me.

 Now I am no makeup artist and there is a reason why I don’t usually show looks and tutorials on my blog but I did give it a go! It isn’t perfect and there are a few things I would change but since I am currently on holiday I didn’t want the skin to look too heavy. Also the model is beautifully pale and since I am on holiday I am a little more tanned.
The first item I knew I need was a peachy shade so I chose no.23 Pearly Peach/Mink Brown* simply for the peachy shade. Although it was a beautiful colour it actually isn’t too intense so I had to work hard to pack on the colour. I simply ran it over my lids slightly higher than my crease although I would recommend going up to the brow bone. Although I used black eyeliner you could also use the Mink Brown shade along the lash line to give it a gentler look.
I used YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch* under my eye area but as it was a little light I used it under my foundation and also on top of my foundation on my cheek and brow bone as a highlighter. The shade range is quite good but buying online is quite hard so I would recommend going in to store.
My favourite product of all was the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy lipstick* in Luscious Cherry. These Lipsticks are divine, the packaging is beautiful, the consistency is perfect for summer months, they are hydrating and this one smells of water mellon! The sheer colour allows you to chose either a light wash or you can build it up for a more intense shade. I must admit that online this colour looked a little more pink but is still a beautiful colour although it doesn’t fit the look quite as well as I had hoped. 
I have really enjoyed taking part in this challenge and have completely fallen in love with this lipstick, can’t wait to try some more YSL lip products. All Yves Saint Laurent products can be bought online and instore 
from John Lewis check out both the makeup and skincare range online.
