MAC Spring/Summer 2010 Trend Report: Makeup Looks

Look#1: Underground Society
An aerodynamically misplaced streak of liner. A lip packed in Pigment or duo-chromatically constructed… a hardass brow. “It’s more of an attempt to project an attitude of individuality and a sense of ownership than about looking gorgeous in any traditional sense,” explains Terry Barber.

Call it ‘silk stocking’ makeup. Balanced, beautiful, elegant and perfect. Beauty that’s the epitome of all that’s chic and grown up, and blended with a precision you can’t help but want to emulate.

Look#3: American Nomad California tans in shades of dusty sands: this summer’s girl has eased up on her SPF 50 obsession and faced the elements for a dusky tan. It’s about going lo-fi with high-tech products to achieve the most translucently youthful and health-pumped finish possible.
