M.A.C S/S 09 Trend Presentation

I was asked by Andrew Berry of we-are-awesome to write a little bitty about the show for the site's blog, seeing as he is a boy and has no interest in makeup, I suppose. Yay for me that he is missing an X chromosome, because the show was amazing! M.A.C Senior Artist Lesley Keane gave us the 411 on S/S 09 trends, and we were given goodie bags containing products needed for the new season.

The 4 collections shown were Black To Earth, Revolutionary Nature, Artiface and Tendertone. The trends involved a huge turn to wet look effects.What used to be matte has been replaced by dewy, gleaming skin and natural country girl looks. I was happy to hear that black is back! Black lips, black eyes, greys and dark blues have made a return to runway. We also saw an introduction to colours that normally wouldn't be used on the face: hospital blues, pale greens, lavenders and oranges.

Lesley Keane brought out a barefaced model and demonstrated her Black to Earth look using the products we were given. When I got home, I delved into the goodie bag and redid the look step by step with the intention of posting it so you can all do it home : )
