There are Make-up Artist that while quoting the past manage to be innovative. Lloyd Simmonds, for example, has created for Yves Saint Laurent a formula full of power and poetry suitable for women with a capital W, aristocratic rebels. His makeup enchants and brings a new dimension to the playful femininity. The new Yves Saint Laurent  Summer 2011 look is a perfect joint of vibrant colors combined with a remarkable ability in the execution. Bold color combinations are real touching, the explosive color of pure tones, saturated important, the fauvist quote: Simmonds revises the way we think and use the color with purity of color and abrogates the rules of traditional “chiaroscuro”.

Palette of colors which are absolutely unpredictable, infinitely adjustable without a specific rule and no limit to the imagination for nail varnish, lipstick, blush, mascara and magic eye-shadows, to blend, mix, use dry or with water. Turquoise Utopique, Ardent Jaune, Bleu Torride are the iconic nuances of the collection. Color marks the importance of shape and of a more instinctive behavior, which want to escape from middle-class entropy. How not to be moved in front of a such great love for form and content? This is true Pathos. This excites us. Well done Simmonds!

Whitening-exfoliating-brightening. In order to achieve the perfect skin tone, erase all imperfections and black spots is a must. A porcelain complexion is a real conquer for all seasons. A sort of “whitening” fever in order to have an even complexion, energetic and bright, what we call a natural look. Cosmetic research gives birth to serums, exfoliating and anti-tache masks and so many more products. The last newly found in the field of anti age dark spots comes from Caudalie. Is called  Vinoperfect Fluide Perfection Éclat SPF 15; its formula made of a cocktail of Viniferina and Papaya enzyme. Its a day fluid which corrects skin irregularities and assures the same photo corrective properties of an invisible foundation with a mat and silky effect on the skin as a result.

The desire of a bright and whyte complexion in Italy is not linked to the insatiable search for pale skin. Is a solid and common habit to undergo a series of treatments to renew skin colour, as well as body and hands, with peelings, whytening solutions. All this efforts in order to prepare our skin to the perfect tan, by the sea or by the mountain and for a perfect make- up. With the intention of having an even complexion without a hint of a bad little detail.
