Bringing the Light Back In

Just because you’ve prepped your skin for makeup, it doesn’t mean you have to bombard your face with an army of chemicals to get a result that satisfies. Use a bit of the Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara to bring some glow to the eyes and accent the entire frame of your face with a touch of Exhibit A Blush to help make your natural bone structure take center stage. Use a bit of the Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil for that necessary pop of vibrancy.

Christian Louboutin Beauté Windows Unveiled at Saks

The unveiling announces the designer's entrance into the world of beauty.

On Wednesday, Christian Louboutin, one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential Fashion Icons, unveiled his next big endeavor – Rouge Louboutin Nail Colour. A foray into the world of beauty with a beautiful red nail polish is a wise and natural extension for the Parisian’s colossal brand, known the world over for its luxurious shoes and their soles, all of which come painted in what may be the most iconic shade of red of all time.

Saks is thrilled to participate alongside Christian Louboutin with bringing a little slice of Parisian life to Fifth Avenue with these magisterial window displays, which officially announce the arrival of a new heavy-hitter in the beauty world. Take a peek at the Chrisitan Louboutin x Saks windows below, or better yet, come down to 49th street and 5th avenue and have a look at them in person.
