Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2008

Backstage at Yves Saint Laurent Thursday, makeup was inspired  by  Fellini’s 1963 movie “8 1/2”.

“I didn’t take it as a reference. It’s more of a twist, and Yves Saint Laurent makeup with a twist,” said makeup artist Tom Pecheux.

Eyes stole the show, with eyeliner stretching outward and upward, topped with a row of false lashes.

Pecheux created a matte base using YSL Matt Touch Foundation and Perfect Touch, then topped it with Poudre Sur Measure.

Then he added a hint of blush and contoured slightly using hues from the Palette Collection compact.

Hairstylist Julien d’Ys, meanwhile, did dual-toned coifs for the show and added hair extensions. The back-combed updos were inspired by Simone Signoret and Jeanne Moreau, d’Ys said.
