Givenchy Spring-Summer 2009 Must-Haves
This time I decided to start a new section about make-up. As you know every season famous labels launch not only clothing, but hit a make-up trends. Usually, there are several new seasonal must-haves to express your beauty! Creative director invites a model to show the make-up trends. Then in early spring they launch a campaign, and you and me go shopping to make ourselves happy :)
This post is about Givenchy spring make-up collection. Creative director Nicolas Degennes was inspired by India flavour.
“I have been, sometimes without realizing it, inspired by historical, traditional India. A mysterious, magical, disquieting India. The India of symbols and thousands of gods, where even cows and elephants are made up and ‘bejewelled’. The India of fairy tales, of Maharajas and especially Maharanis, wrapped up in their silk saris and covered in precious jewels.” — Nicolas said.
He continued — “Based on truly tangible values: earth, water and light. Naturally, once you get over the dazzle, you always come back to the heart and soul.”
Well, let’s have a look at this:

How to use:
Nicolas Degennes recommends layering them or using them over a powder eyeshadow (such as Eye & Brow Prisme, to evoke the earth element).
SARI GLOW Luminous cheek powder.
Two shades, orange and pink:
– Pink for a touch of sweetness and demure femininity: N°43 Maharani Pink.
– Orange for the earth, omnipresent in all its shades and variations: N°44 Maharani Orange.
ROUGE INTERDIT Satin Lipstick Irresistible colour.
Earth and henna, so much a part of India, inspired N°40 Maharani Rose and N°41 Maharani Henna:
PRISMISSIME VISAGE Face & Eye Powder 9-Colors.
– N°21 Maharani Pinks to brighten fair complexions.
– N°22 Maharani Apricots tinged with orange to flatter darker and tanned complexions.
N°161 Maharani Pink and N°162 Maharani Tangerine can be applied in one coat for a semi-transparent result, in two coats for a more intense colour, or even combining the two shades to adorn the nails with a line, a dot or a bindi.
