Givenchy’s Artistic Director, Nicolas Degennes, imagined a “Romantique” mood when he created the makeup collection for Autumn 2009.
The dominant theme is vivid pink, a translucent, shimmery version that elevates the girly tone to an utterly chic and decidedly elegant effect, contrasted with shades of grey, beige and gold. A fresh, natural complexion recieves a texure contrast with uber-glossy lips and shimmery eyes. This dichotomy is also reflected in the striking packaging. Classic black cases are accented with the collection’s signature pink tone and metallic silver touches. The final result is simintounsly modern and timeless.
This season MAC celebrates the idea of the Artist in every shade and stripe…makeup as art form.

Get a sneak peek to Hayden Panettiere’s makeup look at 2009 “I Love You, Beth Cooper” Screening!
Hayden Panettiere’s makeup is all by NEUTROGENA.
Makeup Artist Amy Oresman collaborated with NEUTROGENA brand ambassador Hayden Panettiere to create the starlet’s look for the New York City premiere of “I Love You, Beth Cooper”, and now shares how you can achieve this gorgeous look on your own:
Inspiration: Hayden’s look was inspired by old Hollywood glamour – with a new young twist. This is one of my favorite makeup looks for a starlet. It’s sexy and subtle.
Eyes: I wanted to create a subtle smoky eye that wouldn’t fight with the bright juicy lip we were planning on using on Hayden. To create this look I started by using NEUTROGENA Nourishing Eye Quad in Blue Smoke, this created a subtle smoke to the eye by using graphites and blues, which are not as harsh as black. I then framed the eye with NEUTROGENA Nourishing Eyeliner in Cosmic Black, which has a slight glossy sheen creating just a hint of drama around the perimeter of the eye. I topped the look off with NEUTROGENA Healthy Volume Black Mascara. This look is all about lashes and lips. This mascara is perfect for the three coats of mascara used to create ultra volume.
