I am so lucky to be invited to the opening counter of YSL at Lotte Shopping Avenue last Saturday, October 26th 2013. Thankyou for trusting me again Carnellin. It has been a very long time I haven’t shown up my face in blogging world or blogging event. I love to be around these pretty girls again. And hello again mas Gusnaldi, the official makeup artist ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent. He is known for his brush strokes and color inventions in makeup artistry. Though I miss Mas Gus’s performance on doing makeup, I come to him and ask for beauty advices.
Gusnaldi for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute
It has been a long time I haven’t met him. The last time I met him was when I was working for Cosmopolitan, doing beauty photoshoot with him. I feel so glad that he says that my face looks so familiar to him that he remembers me. So these are the beauty (and life) tricks he shares:
1. For flawless and radiant, non-cracky look
He loves so much YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation he recommends me this. “It won’t crack,” he said, “gives illumination effects and covers redness or acne scars.” I personally agree. Some months ago I have tried this foundation. It smells good compared the other foundations I have tried. It is really smooth and covers well. The look it gives is illuminating too. If you are looking for a radiant and semi-gloss look, you can try this.
2. Le vernis two-color trick
How would it be if purple and orange colors are mixed on the lips itself? Slightly edgy ombre! He tries YSL Le Vernis no 4 (Mauve Pigments) and no.9 (Orange de Chine) on my lips. Upper lip is no.4 and lower lip is no.9. Then just pout the lips in and out. The outcome is amazing. Dark purple with a hint of tangerine. Slightly ombre but just washed-out effect. I really love how he loves to experiment on colors.
3. Keep on Being Productive
He says he is glad that I resign from journalism job and take makeup artistry as a career instead. He says keep being productive. If I love to write, then write a book someday. He also promotes his newest book, The Masterpiece of Makeup.
See you again at the next event, YSL team =)
