Ink inspires for Givenchy's spring/summer 2017 makeup

Jan 16, 2017

Nicolas Degennes, creative director of makeup and color at Givenchy, takes inspiration from ink for the brand's spring/summer 2017 makeup collection, due for release in January.

Color is on the agenda at Givenchy this spring, with a collection inspired by the nature and texture of ink, marking bold lines or leaving light washes of color. As a result, the "Points d'Encrage" collection features shades that may look bold at first glance, but which leave a sheer hint of a shade when applied.

Matte, illuminated skin

This season, Givenchy has two products to keep skin fresh, matte and illuminated as springtime returns.

The brand's "Mémoire de Forme" blush is reworked into a highlighter for this collection. With lightly tinted micro pearls, this pink-tinged jelly is a perfect partner for strobing. It can be applied in touches to highlight specific areas, or over the whole face for a fresh glow.

The brand is reinventing another of its classics this season with "Prisme Libre" landing in a "Travel" version. While the original formulation remains unchanged, this loose mattifying illuminating powder, suitable for all skin tones gets a branded loop on top of the pot inspired by the Givenchy "Obsedia" accessories line. The loop is fixed to a small powder puff, in a design that resembles an ink stamp, a nod to the collection's main inspiration.

Springtime color

Eyes go blue at Givenchy this spring with "Vinyl Liner," a shiny blue/black liner for precision application, and "Encre à Cils," an inky blue mascara top coat, adding intensity to the color of the mascara underneath.

Sheer color textures are also seen in "Huile Irrésistible Pour Les Lèvres," a translucent pink lip oil that leaves a watercolor wash while keeping lips hydrated. The limited-edition "Vernis Givenchy" nail polish lands in a translucent inky purple shade that can be used as a varnish or a top coat.
