I’m Ready to Party with Candy Brights from YSL Spring Look 2012 Collection.

It was a late Sunday morning. I was still in my favourite pj’s (the blue one with the polar bears). It was during my last load of laundry when I thought, hey, I gotta put on some bright makeup.  Why the hell not?  I like to put on more adventurous looks when I know I can wash it off in the shower later, just in case it goes really bad.  I remembered that I haven’t showed a look using the YSL Spring 2012 Collection, so here it finally is.  I like how this one turned out actually — not too loud and dare I say, quite wearable.

Get the Look

This look requires very minimal number of products, and I used all the products I received from YSL (reviewed here).

  • YSL Vinyl Candy Palette
  • YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in No 114 – Sparkling Fuchsia and No 115 – Shimmering Coral
  • YSL Voile de Blush in No 2 – Coral Veil

For the eyes, start with a wash of matte light beige eyeshadow (MAC Brûlé) all over the lid all the way to the brow bone.  Pat the light pink (YSL Vinyl Candy palette) on the inner third of the lid and inner third of the lower lash line.  Follow with the lavender on the outer two thirds of the lid.  Start applying the blue shade along the outer half of the lash line and along the outer V. Build up the intensity of the blue by applying more layers and blending.  Line the top and bottom waterlines with a black pencil, and create a thick cat eye flick with a black liquid liner (Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner).

For the cheeks, apply a coral gel blush (YSL Voile de Blush in No 2 – Coral Veil) on the apples of the cheeks to add radiance.

For the lips, apply a sheer layer of coral (YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in No 115 – Shimmering Coral) or fuchsia (No 114 – Sparkling Fuchsia) to complete the look.

YSL Spring Look 2012 is available in Canada as of February in Holt Renfrew and selected Bay and Murale stores.  The Vinyl Candy Palette is also available at selected Sephora boutiques.

Do you like the YSL Spring Look 2012 collection?  I just adore the pops of colour! :)  Oh, and love the texture of the lipstick.

    Totally wearable, such a pretty look! I have to say though, I’m pretty disappointed that you didn’t show us your blue PJ’s with the polar bears :P

    Gorgeous! I need those lippies for sure! Love YSL lip products!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Which YSL lippies are your favourite? I loooove the Rouge Pur Coutures. Probably my favourite from the brand.

    I love sparkling coral on you!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Thanks Victoria! I think the coral is fab over an opaque peachy-pink lipstick for maximum impact.

    I love how it’s bright, but now over the top! Doing brights subtly can be a bit of a challenge, so BRAVA to you, Arianne!
