Make-up gets flawless

Yves Saint Laurent's Fall/Winter 11 beauty look is about radiant, sexy skin.

Models at the show held in Paris earlier this year boasted flawless complexions with just a touch of colour on the cheeks and eyes.

To achieve this look you'll need to ditch the fake tan and bronzer, as make-up artists Pat McGrath worked hard to make models pale and interesting.

"I wanted the models' faces to be open and sexy," Pat explained.

The women had slicked black hair, which perfectly complimented the look. Eyebrows were sculpted but still full, and all emphasis was on the skin.

To achieve this look start with a primer, then apply a light foundation and get rid of any dark patches with concealer.

"Even skin tone with foundation and loose powder," Pat advised in UK magazine Marie Claire.

"To highlight, add YSL Ombres Duolumineres in Evenly Beige to eye corners and cheeks. Then a brown colour on the lids and a brown mascara on upper lashes only."

The cosmetics guru advises using a coral lipstick with a golden-hued gloss on top to finish the look.
