On 6 February, we made history. ELLE Beauty School went live for the very first time, taking over the YSL counter at Debenhams Oxford Street to celebrate the relaunch of YSL’s legendary Touche Éclat Le Teint foundation.

On the day, our three exclusive beauty looks – Ultimate Glow, High-Def Contouring and Sunstripping – were demonstrated to over 200 ‘pupils’ across 16 individual lessons, led by the ELLE Beauty Team and YSL’s brilliant make-up artists. Each one started with an individual colour-match consultation to find out which one of Touche Éclat Le Teint’s 22 foundation shades was their perfect match, followed by a step-by-step beauty tutorial.

Then it was into the ELLE photobooth to be immortalised on an ELLE cover to take home and share online. As you’ll see in the covers gallery below, Touche Éclat Le Teint’s lightweight formula offers full coverage for a flawless, radiant finish that means you’re always photo-ready.

200-plus makeovers, 868 photobooth shots and 425 ELLE covers printed on the day – thank you YSL!
