The Parisian Look

It’s all about shine when it comes to lips this season! Makeup artist Monika Bunic explains how to find the right shade and achieve the Parisian look.

We are seeing a lot of brights coming through for summer, how can we interpret this trend into our make up?

Playing with colour is the most exciting part of makeup and the quickest way to really add a pop of colour to your look is with a great lip shade. We’ve moved on from the Matt Finish lipstick and this season is all about the shine. For today’s look we used shade 6 from the new Rouge Volupte Shine collection by YSL, a signature look that strikes the perfect balance between bold colour and feminine shine.

How do we find the best bold shade to suit our personal complexion?

Yves Saint Laurent has three DNA colours that stem from our couture heritage – Rouge, Fuchsia and Orange. Across our 70 colour lip range there really is a shade variation of each signature colour to suit every complexion.

The latest twist on the statement lip craze is a brighter fuchsia hue. To get the look apply YSL Dessin des Levres lip liner first and then Rouge Pur Couture shade number 7.


To create the illusion of a fuller pout line the cupid bow above the lip with your Touche Éclat highlighting pen and blend gently with the tip of your index finger.
