Always intrigued by how Parisian women looks, this upcoming holiday 2012 collection is just perfect.

Doing your own makeup is a part of your own confidence. It also allow you to please yourself the way you want it. Play with your makeup and show them up, especially when the holiday season is right on the corner. 

I try to offer a maximum of make-up possibilities to celebrate the holidays as they wish, and above all to enable women to please themselves. The YSL woman is audacious and ultra-chic. Like a Parisian, she can choose to emphasize her eyes, her smile, or both, be modest and use a single color, or bold and combine two or more to create spectacular contrasts,” said Lloyd Simmonds, Creative Director Make-up Yves Saint Laurent Beaute. Sparkling and daring, are the main looks for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Holiday 2012 collection, named The Aurora Borealis/Northern Lights.

Highlighter in a compact form, top coat for nail color, glosses, and (my star product) the eyeshadow palette, will create a festive and magical look for the right event. I love the whole look, which look classic yet minimalist with one stroke of vivid plum color, creating a smoky eyes that look so couture. And check out the silver-sequined pouch that cover the palette, which reminds me of YSL’s vintage dresses.
