Presenting Loubileopard, Christian Louboutin Beauty’s new feline fatale makeup look, and the first “Loubilook” – for lips, eyes, and nails – imaged by the ultra-creative Isamaya Ffrench, Christian Louboutin Beauty’s global makeup artist. Created expressly for the holiday season 2019, Loubileopard offers a bold and born in the wild festive look: for a new feline fatale in all her strength and self-confidence. Indeed, Christian Louboutin imagines a femme fatale when he designs a leopard-print shoe, and thus for her Loubileopard look, Isamaya Ffrench imagines a feline fatale: a woman radiating power and feline strength.
Setting the scene with the poise of a Catwoman stalking the rooftops of Paris in her leopard-print Louboutins, Isamaya Ffrench imagines the feline flick of cat’s eyes shining bright in the darkness, red nails gleaming sharp in the light, lips painted with power to roar. Comprised of one lip colour, one nail colour, two eye colours and a pair of sweeping black and golden false eyelashes, Isamaya Ffrench creates the feline fatale ready to pounce on her prey.
The eye-catching leopard print is an ode to femininity, felinity and extravagance, frequently associated with strong and powerful women. For this reason, combined with his love of prints, Christian Louboutin has incorporated leopard fabrics into his designs since 1994. Since then, the leopard print has appeared season after season as a recurrent material, reinterpreted in different fabrics and designs.
Featuring limited-edition shades and sleek, leopard-print cases Loubileopard is directly inspired by one of these patterns in particular: Lurex Panthere, an iconic printed satin with a touch of gold lurex that is perfect for evening wear.
With its bold gold, glittery and red colours, Loubileopard is the wildest accessory to unleash feline power into this festive season. Make a statement in ready to claw red nails, with the nail colour Rouge Louboutin. Create the feline regard of prowling eyes with Lionissima (metallic nude) or Priyadora (metallic brown). And for a final feline touch, false eyelashes in black and glittery gold. Pair your chosen cat’s eye with suede soft matte lips to slink into the room with elegance, Velvet Matte Lip Colour in Rouge Louboutin.
Isamaya Ffrench, Christian Louboutin Beauty’s global makeup artist, shares how to create her first Loubilook. “To create the perfect feline eye, begin by painting the inner corners and eyelid dazzling gold, with Tape à l’Oeil Lionissima. Create smouldering shadow, with Tape à l’Oeil Priyadora and paint a line across the outer corner of the eye towards the centre. Do the same under the eye.
Feline eye perfection comes from pairing a flawless black line across the lid with an end flick, using Christian Louboutin Khol Oeil Vinyle, and applying the divine glitter eyelashes, trimming if needed. Complete your look of feline seduction by gliding suede colour onto lips with Velvet Matte Lip Colour: the iconic matte lipstick, ultimate blend of ultra-pigmented colour and natural oils with a soft touch finish in – what other colour for a feline fatale? – Rouge Louboutin.”
