The Kylie x Balmain Collection Launches Sept. 27 & Includes Lipstick, Eyeshadow, & More
Fashion month always tends to inspire not only people's sartorial senses, but their beauty routines too. In fact, the runways often greatly influence the hair and makeup trends for the season to come, as stylish show-goers (and just about everyone else) attempt to recreate their favorite looks from presentations soon after they've strutted down the catwalk. This season, it'll be even easier to emulate some of the most of-the-moment faces — and you'll have one iconic French fashion house and a very famous beauty mogul to thank. The Kylie x Balmain collection of very fashion-forward makeup must-haves is coming very soon, and will make all your couture cosmetics dreams come true.
As a member of one of the world's most famous families, makeup maven Kylie Jenner has gotten access to her fair share of high-fashion. The founder of crowd-favorite beauty line Kylie Cosmetics is often spotted sporting fresh-from-the-runway pieces on (and even off) the red carpet, ensuring she maintains her status as a very fashionable style star to always keep an eye on. Her 2019 Grammys look was so eye-catching, in fact, that even the designer — who just so happened to be Balmain's Olivier Rousteing — had to stop and take a moment to let it sink in.
"I remember waking up early in Paris on that morning and immediately pulling up the pictures from the Grammys weekend. As I quickly scrolled through the red-carpet shots, the incredible images of Kylie and Travis [Scott] made me stop in my tracks," Olivier Rousteing said in an official press release.
From that moment, inspiration took hold and Rousteing knew exactly how to bring a beauty collaboration with the star to life.
"When I called to thank her, Kylie and I almost immediately began brainstorming about bringing the colors, outlook and style of my couture vision into her beauty universe. Above all, we both loved the possibilities of that unique mixture—combining Kylie’s exciting pop culture and LA spirit with Balmain’s Parisian heritage and my vision of a new type of couture, designed for the woman of today," Rousteing said.
Thus, the Kylie x Balmain collection was born. And you'll be able to shop it on Sept. 27, the same day as the Balmain Spring-Summer 2020 runway show at Opera Garnier in Paris. When the collab drops, you'll find a limited-edition collection that includes a Balmain Palette with nine couture shades — one of which mimics the exact shade of pink of Jenner's show-stopping Grammys Balmain ensemble. There'll also be a new shade of Kylie Cosmetics' cult-loved matte lipstick and liner and high gloss, also in fresh, feminine shades of light pink.
On top of the high-style collaboration, Kylie Jenner has also been named Artistic Director, Make-Up for the upcoming collection presentation — so expect no shortage of glamour as the models glide down the runway. Grab the fresh launch when it drops to recreate the looks for yourself.
