Mac spring / summer 2011 Trends- Part 2
Think a burst of colour...
Pushing the limits...
Fashion on acid...
The glamour of a ‘Red lip’ with an edgier vibe...
A treatment of Neon to oranges, pinks and magentas...
Beautiful balance of a ‘pop’ of colour placed on a discreetly prepared canvas to avoid the makeup appearing ‘theatrical’. For example leaving out mascara or brows and keeping the skin clean and natural...
Taking a classic look like a precise lip and turning up the intensity by using super saturated block colour.
I worked on the Giles show representing MAC where Miranda Joyce was the key make up artist.
Here's what we used.
- Face and Body Foundation – where needed, fresh skin is so important so this look stays modern.
- MAC Pro Gold Glitter – over the lids, packed on tight at the lash line, applied onto mixing medium lash with a 242 brush.
- MAC Pro Turquoise or Pro Pink Glitter – applied in the same way all around the gold and up into the brows, applied in a “C” shape beneath the eyes in a free and arty, not perfect, style.
- Plushblack Plush Lash Mascara – several coats on top and bottom lashes
- Brows bleached if necessary.
- Lady Danger Lipstick – softly applied.
- Clear Lipglass – for a full-on vinyl finish.
“It’s Bohemian and arty rather that draggy or overly retro – there’s definitely a sense of real decadence and fun behind makeup this season” – Miranda Joyce
