For a pop of luxurious colour, look no further than the Yves Saint Laurent Spring 2012 collection.

Candy-coloured makeup may not sound that appetizing, but this new collection of bright pinks, violets and blackcurrents will go great with darker shades of skin, and offer lots of room for experimentation.

Consider the limited edition Vinyl Candy Palette with four eye shadows from Yves Saint Laurent. We’ll buy for the flashy vinyl cover on its own.

We also love the Duo Manicure Set in Shade No 7 Brown and Mint. Here’s a tip from Yves Saint Laurent and Holt Renfrew: Apply one shade to your nails and let dry. Apply the second shade along the tips for a bold, colourful French manicure. Colour blocking for nails.

The new Golden Gloss shades in peach and fuscia speckled with gold glitter will look great on darker skin. Great paired with Indian outfits, or to add a splash of glam during the day.
