In this article I’m gonna show you some of the Face Charts used to express MAC Spring – Summer 2011 makeup trends during London Fashion Week from 19 September 2010.
Last week I’ve showed you some of MAC Spring – Summer 2011 makeup looks from NYFW so after you’ll read this article and see the new face charts from London you can compare and tell me which do you prefer more. 🙂
The first face chart represents a makeup done by Sam Bryant for the models presenting Richard Nicoll‘s collection.
Inspiration: A modern take on a 90s David Bowie.EYE
Morange Lipstick – applied sheer along lower lash line, across lid and up to brow and extended out slightly to create a 90’s feel.
Dusk cream color base – blended into socket line with brush 219.
Clear lipglass – slicked onto the upper lid.
Bleached out brows.
Morange Lipstick and Studio Sculpt Foundation – mixed together and patted onto lips.
Luna Cream Color Base – used to highlight cupids bow and down centre of lip and topped with gold pigment.
Studio Sculpt Foundation – applied to skin with brush 188.
Morange Lipstick – used on and under the cheekbones and up through the temples.
Dusk Cream Color Base – used underneath cheekbone to contour.
Sheel Cream Color Base – to highlight tops of cheekbones and centre of the nose.
The second face chart shows a makeup done also by Sam Bryant but this time for a different designer, Margaret Howell.
Inspiration: I don’t want them to look like they’re wearing makeup at all – it’s really about natural gorgeousness, so the focus is on conditioning and nourishing the skin.
Ebony Eye Pencil – a trace in the upper lash line to give the eyes a subtle strength without needing mascara.
Lip Conditioner – patted onto the lips.
MoistureLush Cream Mixed with Fix + and Care Blends Esesntial Oils – all whipped into the skin with a 187 brush for a skin cuisine.
Fast Response Eye Cream – patted under eyes.
Select MoistureCover Concealer – where needed.
Face and Body Foundation – where needed.
Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder – on T zone only.
Lilicent and Laidback BlushCremes – across the cheeks and bridge of the nose for a “country glow” applied in a large area with a 188 brush.
Now let’s check out the third face chart which is my favorite by the way and because of its vibrant pink – purple makeup done by Val Garland for Mary Katrantzou.
Inspiration: This is not a makeup. It’s an ‘icy’ look inspired by a palette of Laduree Pastels.
Washed Out CreamShadow (avaialable 2011) and Digit Eye Shadow blended onto upper lid and taken up to brow using a 217 brush.
Fascinating Eye Kohl – applied to the lower water line.
Saint Germain Lipstick – patted over lip conditioner on the lips.
Face and Body Foundation – applied onto moisturized skin using a 187 brush. Select Moisturecover Concealer – used to conceal and as a highlighter on top of cheek and centre of nose. Pink Swoon Powder Blush – applied to centre of cheeks with a 138 brush.
And now last but not least a Gordon Espinet MAC Spring – Summer 2010 makeup look done for the presentation of Vivienne Westwood‘s collection.
Inspiration: This is a makeup that starts off with a totally pretty base and then we go nuts with color on it! The final result is more like an impressionist painting.
Litebrite Cremeshadow (available 2011) – applied as a sheer wash over the lid with more attention by the lash line. Fascinating Eye Kohl – applied to the water lines.
Carbon Black Opulash (available 2011) – combed through the lashes.
Clear Brow set – to set the brows.
Diva Lipstick – very softly applied as a base.
Ruby Woo Lipstick – in the center of the lips.
Strobe Liquid – all over the face to give skin a hyper luminosity.
Studio Sculpt Concealer – applied where needed.
So Sweet, So Easy CremeBlush – on the apples of the cheeks.
