Kylie Jenner is about to add a new line to her resume: Olivier Rousteing , her longtime friend, asked the cosmetics entrepreneur to be Balmain's artistic makeup director during Paris Fashion Week .
To commemorate the event, Kylie Cosmetics and the French label will launch a capsule collection on September 27, the day of the show, available exclusively in the United States from the Kylie Cosmetics website. She will attend a party at the Balmain store on Rue Saint-Honoré on Friday to toast the collaboration, which includes lipsticks, eyeshadow and accessories incorporating makeup that will be unveiled at the show.
This will mark Balmain's first partnership in the world of cosmetics. The inspiration came from a brand look that Kylie wore during the Grammy Awards . "It was all very spontaneous," the designer told WWD . "We started talking about what inspired us, and Kylie loved the January fashion haute couture collection, with all those soft, pastel colors that are well in tune with her universe. So we decided to mix our two worlds." The collection promises to turn fever!
