No One Makes a Cat-Eye Look Quite as Cool as Zoë Kravitz
Just when we thought it wasn’t possible for Zoë Kravitz to be any cooler, Yves Saint Laurent Beauté announced in May that in addition to acting and fronting her electro-pop band Lolawolf, Kravitz would add another hyphen to her long list of talents as the brand’s newest muse.
Needless to say, the 27-year-old daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet is taking on the new role with ease as seen at a recent summer party she attended during Paris Couture Fashion week on July 5 at Palais Galleria. At the event, Lloyd Simmonds Creative Director of Makeup at YSL Beauty created a polished update of a thick, punky cat-eye for Kravitz that was fit for a night out in Paris, but wouldn’t look out of place when she’s on-stage with her band.
To give Kravitz’s skin an otherworldly glow, Simmonds prepped it with a cocktail of Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation in BD50 and BD70 ($58 each; yslbeautyus.com). Along with providing even coverage, this formula is packed with anti-aging benefits to keep Kravitz’s complexion bright and awake well into the night whether she’s at a party or on-stage. Following foundation, Simmons used Yves Saint Laurent Couture Contouring Palette N°2 ($47; lordandtaylor.com) to perfect her skin.
Kravitz’s edgy eye came courtesy of a combination of Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono Eyeshadow in 5 Modele ($30; yslbeautyus.com), a metallic lavender shade, and Yves Saint Laurent Couture Kajal Eye Pencil ($35; yslbeautyus.com). Simmonds drew on her graphic winged line using Yves Saint Laurent Eye Maker ($34; saksfifthavenue.com), and added definition using Yves Saint Laurent Couture Variation Palette in Tuxedo ($95; yslbeautyus.com).
Simmonds kept Kravitz’s eyes as the focus by painting a my-lips-but-better shade on her lips using a combination of Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss and Blush in 12 Moca Garconne ($40; yslbeautyus.com) and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain Plump Up ($36; yslbeautyus.com). On her nails, he kept the neutral palette going to tie the entire look together by painting on Yves Saint Laurent La Lacque Couture in Beige Leger ($28; yslbeautyus.com).
