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).

Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman, paired a smoky eye with sun-burnt skin at the Rag & Bone Fall 2011 Collection, bringing forth the designer’s vision of an urban Eskimo.
At Vena Cava Fall 2011, MAC makeup artist Christian Mcculloch created a look that is “a bit French and a bit rock ‘n’ roll… greasy, sexy and cool”.
