Black make-up and cosmetics for autumn/winter 2008-2009


© Yves Saint Laurent

Dark, captivating and mysterious, black is this season's color.

Smoky eyes combined with a flawless complexion and shiny lips create a sophisticated rock look.

Dramatic black is powerfully glam, and though easy to use it does precise application and some carefully chosen shades of gray to soften it.

Bring out your dark side!
