MAC trends fall/winter 2012 (part 1)

13 Jun

M.A.C trendpresentations are always more than just interesting. They give me inspiration, warmth, the will to take make-up further than I normally do.

So when I can, I try to attend these exclusive get-togethers, to see how my hero make-upartists make trends come alive.

My first finding was that upcoming fall/winter, the overal feeling will be very strong and independent. Powerful women with an own identity prevail. It’s sexyness in a strong, heroic but still romantic way. A little bit of history retranslated: From the dark middle ages, over the roaring thirties, passing by the swinging sixties, to land in the colourful nineties.

Sounds confusing, I know! So to make it more clear for everyone, MAC divided the latest catwalk-looks into 4 trends.

1. Sense + Sensibility

–> Feeling: Soft military / independent / mysterious / tomboy / the thirties

–> Technique: – Keep the skin quite raw, without too much concealer.

                             – Straight eyebrows.

                            – Top eyes and lips off with a gloss.

–> Products: a (dark) red lipstick / brow set / glazing prep balm / transparant or mineralize foundation

2. Roam-antique

–> Feeling: Antique eras with modern, edgy twist / tough and soft at the same time.

–> Technique: – Use of deep colours like gold, blue, green, purple, burgundy,…

                             – Impact on the eyes and/or the lips.

                             – Lots of blending.

                             – Dusty, powdery look

–> Products: deep red or cherry lipstick / eyeshadows in gold, blue, green, purple, brown, carbon and burgundy / coffee eye pencil / MAC Pro cream colour base / brow set / gold loose pigment

3. Hone-structure

–> Feeling: Subtle but strong, like tree girls / nature-like

–> Technique: – Very precise, like a blue print

                             – Lots of contouring in the face for more depth.

                             – Brow focus.

                             – Natural lips.

–> Products: Earthy, browny colours / sculpting creams  / taupe or peachy blush

4. Arti-TecH

–> Feeling: Geometry in the face / 90s style that gets broken / Clever, intelligent makeup which is interesting in detail

–> Technique: – Be really precise, because it’s all about lines and details.

                             – Make the look even more interesting by deconstructing the obvious lines.

–> Products: Eyeliner! It’s all about the eyeliner!
