BALMAIN X KYLIE JENNER MAKEUP COLLECTION
Kylie Jenner and Olivier Rousteing launch a makeup collaboration for Balmain for Paris Fashion Week.
September 25, 2019
Kylie Jenner is expanding her resume by collaborating with Olivier Rousteing of Balmain as Artistic Director for makeup at the runway show, set to take place on September 27th. To further celebrate their partnership, the duo have worked on a Balmain x Kylie Jenner capsule collection which will feature products that were prepared exclusively for the show.
“It happened in a totally spontaneous and natural way,” Rousteing said. “We started talking about what inspires us, and Kylie really loved my couture collection from January with these very soft, pastel colors that are very much in tune with her universe. We decided to blend our two worlds.”
In addition to Kylie’s signature lip colour products, the capsule collection will also include eye shadow and accessories (which incorporate makeup), and will be unveiled on the runway. The packaging alone comes in a beautiful pastel pink hue, and the inspiration is in part due to that pink couture jumpsuit by Balmain that Jenner fronted on the 61st Grammy awards’ red carpet.
This Balmain x Kylie Jenner collection is the second time Balmain has ventured into cosmetics. In 2017, the fashion house collaborated with L’Oréal Paris on a range of lipsticks. Balmain is also currently in the process of launching its own cosmetics line.
