This week, L’Oréal Paris announced an exciting new exclusive collaboration with designer Elie Saab coming this spring. Launching in June, the makeup collaboration between the internationally acclaimed fashion designer and the beloved beauty brand is sure to be a summertime staple. “My goal has always been to make women look beautiful and this collection allows me to bring an array of products to fit into women’s lives; helping them to feel more elegant and confident in their everyday,” said Elie Saab. The collection will be revealed on May 6 and launches in June. We caught up with the designer to chat about the line.

On why it’s a perfect time to release a collection that is centred around optimism and escapism

“In such a difficult time, we all need to be positive,” says Saab. “This is why I believe it’s the perfect timing to launch this collection with L’Oréal Paris that was made to enhance a woman’s beauty by creating dreamy products to bring something new and positive to use every day.”

On the inspiration behind the makeup collection.

“The main inspiration behind the makeup line is the same feminine, graceful, elegant woman who inspires my designs,” explains Saab. “I always seek to bring beauty to women’s lives and makeup is the simplest way to weave beauty into everyday life. My aim is to create a universal collection to suit every skin tone and occasion, so I chose soft, warm colours in an assortment of textures, from shimmery to matte, for the palette in order to elegantly enhance without detracting from a woman’s natural beauty.”
