Dan Thompson: Beauty Busted


Mineral L'Apéro by Daniel Thompson Beauty

Your Sneak Peek at Autumn 2012

Last week I showcased the new make-up trends for 2012. The top designers are showing such a contrast of colours and textures. Autumn 2012 looks to be a fun season for make-up lovers.

Daniel Thompson Beauty launches our newest collection on September 4, 2012.

Here is a special sneak peek just for YMC readers. 


Daniel Thompson Beauty focuses on structured sophistication for Autumn/Winter 2012. Inspired by the after-five elegance of the City of Light, I have created a glamorous collection of striking contrasts. Mineral L’Apéro evokes that very special time of day when work is finished but home has not yet beckoned; c’est l’heure de l’apéro!

This season make-up is defined with contradictions, placed carefully side-by-side, to create a physical manifestation of my favourite time of day. Dark and light are mixed to create soft tones one moment then atmospheric depth the next.

Mineral L’Apéro is rich excess and sleek absence all at once!

For Autumn/Winter I drew inspiration from that special hour when day has not quite ended but night has not yet begun. When work is over, but the toils of home have not yet commenced. A special moment when there is a pause simply to breathe and imbibe. I envisioned a woman who turns an office suit into a party dress simply by letting down her hair. She is intelligent and secure. She is chic and alluring. She owns this fragile moment in time. Mineral L’Apéro is my interpretation of this fleeting hour.
