World-renowned fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee collaborated with L’Oreal Paris for his debut festive makeup collection. The designer joined hands with the cosmetics giant for a 21-piece limited-edition makeup line, called “L’Oréal Paris x Sabyasachi”. The collection was launched in October 2018. Mukherjee’s collection focuses on classic beauty. He says, “For me, classic is iconic because classic is unforgettable.” Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was the face of the campaign. “Modern beauty is about being carefree and casual,” the designer tells Guardian 20. “Wear your makeup effortlessly. Makeup shouldn’t wear you down. A red mouth, a winged liner, sun-kissed, wind-swept hair and a simple, classic sari creates a look that is iconic yet simple to achieve. It has a certain je ne sais quoi about it.” The makeup series includes nine new shades of highly pigmented matte lip colours in hues ranging from soft beige to hot pink, a black eyeliner and a volumising mascara.
