YSL Le Smokey Eye

Eye Dare… Do you?

Inspired by the iconic Yves Saint Laurent Le Smoking couture heritage, Tom Pecheux, YSL Global Beauty Director has created Le Smokey Eye collection daring us to embody the essence of the YSL woman. Be unapologetic, a rule breaker, and definitely go big on the eye-titude.

This collection includes a new mascara called Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils, perfect to create an intense look and a great finish to Le Smokey Eye. Use the new Crushliner Waterproof Liner to draw a thin sharp line or build it up for a more directional look. The creamy texture also lets you smudge easily to get the blended effect. The liners come in 10 shades everything from subtle to bold. I personally love the Noir Intense, YSL No 1. There are also 4 new Mono shades of eyeshadow in two finishes Matte and Metallic. The colors and finish are inspired by the textures and shades of fabrics which are long-lasting with a quick finger stroke. My favorite is the Dazzling Taupe Metallic Eye Shadow No. 43.

This new Ready to Wear eye beauty collection is available now and Tom gives us 3 easy steps to get his signature disruptive looks!  And the beauty is you don’t have to be a makeup artist or a professional to get the look.
“My three tips are:
First, with your mascara, start right at the beginning of your lashes and bring it up until you create a good lift.
Second, liquid eyeliner will bring a true impact to your eyes and frame them.
Third and last, your shadow- use the dab and pull application for your eyeshadow when you want to layer extra texture, color and density. The dab is when you take the tip of your finger, and you dab. Pulling is when you press, and you pull. If you pull, you are going to blend, it makes it more smokey. If you dab, then you get more intensity,” Tom explains.
