Destination Givenchy


Generally, clothes are divided up into daywear and evening wear, and I think that’s true for make-up collections too. The newest SS13 collection from Givenchy called Hotel Prive falls into the daywear wardrobe. But if drawing comparisons with clothing would be more a silk  shirt than a well worn t-shirt, whilst in the world of work, more Symthson’s than Rymans!  Yes, we’re talking low-key luxury rather than functional and plain.


Nicolas Degennes, International Artistic Director for the up-swish beauty brand describes this collection as colours that express pleasure and cosy intimacy. Ones that give a subtle and natural elegance. Shades are not in-the-buff, but under-played, which somehow adds to their allure.  Their star player is the paletted matt and sequined quartet of shadows in taupe, grey and natural beige. All three cleverly attract the light and open up the eye. The fourth is a ballerina pretty, pearlescent rose milk pink which works as an iridescent highlighter. Sweep across the upper lid to accentuate its curve during the day. My other favourites from the collection are Rouge Interdit satin lipstick in Private Peach. A pinkish beige shade, it super vamps a nude lip, making it look naturally full and Vernis Please! Nail lacquer in Private Taupe. A step up from a 'polite' muted shade, it gives fingertips a modern and sleek edge. Hotel Prive is most definitely a destination for the cool and the chic.
