The clothes weren’t the only viewing pleasure for fashionistas at the David Jones Spring Summer show last week – MAC’s latest makeup looks for the warmer months ahead were also a big hit.
Held in Sydney, the show featured Jessica Gomes, Jesinta Franklin, Bridget Malcolm and Shanina Shaik and other models wearing designs by 40 brands as well as two distinct makeup looks for over 300 glamourous guests.
According to MAC senior artist Nicole Thompson, the key makeup looks for the season is “classic summer beauty” featuring “radiant bronzed skin with enhanced freckles and golden tans” but two looks were required for the show.
“As the show is so big with so many different designers we needed classic beauty looks to enhance out models while being able to be worn with an array of colours and styles.
“Both looks have skin that is perfect with my favourite skin coverage combo – MAC Studio Fix Fluid and MAC Face and Body Foundation – for glowing texture with the coverage every woman wants.”
“The complexion is set with a spritz of backstage staple (MAC Prep + Prime Fix +) to set and freshen.”
The two looks were:
Ginger-nut Smokey Eye: “I really wanted this eye makeup to be a strong statement but not heavy in colour. The monochromatic ginger/ochre tone is blended all the way over the lids and up through the eyebrows – and all is finished with a beautiful sheen that is picked up under the lights.”
Classic crimson lips with a vibrant matte twist: “Set against glowing warm skin, the red lipstick is the ultimate makeup accessory for any outfit. Brows, eyes and cheeks are all subtly boosted and polished, but all take a back seat to this clean matte pout.”
