This spring/summer, MAC is bringing us beauty that involves brave statements, experimental textures, handsome feminity and art:- A vivid Basquiat-bold lip on a stripped-back skin (Pop Classic), a saccharine sweet colour applied in an avant-garde manner (Ice Dream), a stripped back, minimalist face to counter a complex collection (Raw Fined) and exploring the precise points of contrast between light and shade in a tan-toned face (Terra Copper).
For the Etro Spring/Summer 2011 show, Charlotte Tilbury did a gorgeous “smoked lavender purple that’s universally flattering” on the models for a chic, contemporary seventies vibe.
At the Blumarine Spring 2011 show, Charlotte Tilbury (who was working for MAC) gave models a “modern day Talitha Getty” look that resembles a “luxurious Bohemian girl sailing around the Med, wearing a fabulous leopard print kaftan”.
At the Giles Spring 2011 show during London Fashion Week, MAC makeup artist Miranda Joyce created a “Mick Jagger in performance meets the Seventies Drag Act” look with loads of glitter on the eyes and orange lips.
I have always loved the idea of pairing black eyeliner with bright orange lips and apparently, Dick Page, Artistic Director of Shiseido, do too. Just look at the gorgeous matte orange lips, rosy cheeks and glossy eyes at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 show. Lovesss!
At the Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2011 show, Gucci Westman, Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, created “a modern day princess” look to go with the feminine prints and rich color.
