You may remember us telling you that make-up master Tom Pecheux, the makeup artist behind the looks at Derek Lam – hard and sexy, and Balmain – chic and effortless, as well as a ton of hot celebrity faces (Madonna in her Music era for starters) has been hired to luxe-up Estee Lauder’s makeup. Well, it’s finally here!
His first mini collection, Pure Color Night, is a taster for what’s to come in autumn….we can’t wait! Inspired by chic Parisian women, this capsule beauty wardrobe consists of three classics including Ombre Effect Eyeshadow in Naughty Black £15.50, for an intense rock-chick eye, Luminous powder £28, a shimmering nude perfect for highlighting, and Lip Gelee in Kiss Me £16, an wet-look berry stain for lips. ‘I wanted to create the iconic French makeup look; the black smoky eye, dewy skin and kissable lip,’ says Pecheux. Ooh la la. Speaking of Parisians, this nod to French chic even extends to his choice of model - Pecheux hand picked French super Constance Jablonski as the face behind the line (check out this exclusive behind the scenes shot of Constance looking gorgeous….sigh). It even comes with a gold metal authentication card; like a designer handbag.
Available exclusively in Selfridges, stock is super limited, so buy now. Think of it as a pair of Chanel ballet pumps or classic black blazer…..an investment that goes with everything!
