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”.
Clockwise: Lipstick 4 Grenade Suave. Terre Sable Bronze Saharienne 6. Eye Shadow Duo: Ardent Jaune / Bleu Torride. Nail Lacquer 137 Turquoise Utopique. Nail Lacquer 138 Jaune Surrealists. Crème de Blush 4. All YVES SAINT LAURENT.
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!
