City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

Despite the untimely death of one of the worlds most celebrated fashion designers, Yves Saint Laurent’s legacy continues on each day through his eponymous fashion and beauty brand. Saks and YSL Beaute have teamed up to offer a day of beauty for those looking to perfect their summer look.

Inspired by the treasures of Africa, the summer collection features warm bronze tones for the skin, fleshy pinks and amethyst greys for the eyes. The event features a Public Appearance by the brands Artistic Advisor, Val Garland. During the Master Class attendees will learn to create the perfect effortless summer look.

The reason behind YSL’s inevitable expansion into beauty, “I wanted a face for the woman I dress.” If that’s not inspiration for a new summer look than I’m not sure what is…

What: Public Appearance by Val Garland, Artistic Advisor of YSL Beaute, offering individual appointment and a Master Class
Where: Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Avenue (at 50th Street)
When: Thursday April 23rd- Master Class ($50 redeemable in product), 8am-10am
Public Appearance, 10am-7pm
