YSL BEAUTY S/S 2009: INSPIRING FOR ONE REASON, FRIGHTENING FOR ANOTHER



Every Friday, whatever I post here ends up incorporated into my outfit/hair/makeup, in some way or another. Sometimes, it could certainly be argued that the process occurs the opposite way; that I post what I like, which often already resembles my own style. 

In the case of YSL Beauty’s new S/S campaign, it’s definitely the former. I had no intention of sporting bright eyeshadow this evening, but now, though I might opt for hot pink, it must be done.

Multiple people on TFS objected to the camera angle, but personally my gripe is with the white halter top. Even if it is Yves St. Laurent, I think it’s dicey to pair a tan, lip gloss, and turquoise eyeshadow with a white halter top! That’s the kind of thing my freshman year college roommate wore, except with velour sweatpants and a LOT more bronzer. Am I wrong that the angle is part of the reason they’re able to make this work?

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go smear hot pink eyeshadow all over my three layers of false lashes. Think I’ll leave my Juicy sweats at home.
