MAC A/W 16 Trend report

Sorry to talk about Autumn/Winter before we have dipped our toe fully in Summer but here is your heads-up on what’s what for makeup courtesy of the MAC trend report.
 The trends sit under two umbrellas of Strict and Loose.

The Strict group

Makeup is an accessory to the face. Accents of glitter and rainbow liners. Embellishing the facial features whilst keeping the skin fresh and plumped.

Sharp Trend

 This trend has an emphasis on the lips. Dark cherry lips with a vinyl finish. Precision is key so dig out your lip liners and give them a good sharpen. 

Max Mara Milan

Hyper real, satin finish skin and a played down eye. Blusher is barely there whilst the brows are soft and fluffy but still tamed.

Gareth Pugh London
Proenza Schouler New York    

 Razor trend

Tough extreme black eyes in a modern punk style. 

Giamba Milan

Using liner to create unique shapes. Let your artistic flare go wild and step away from the normal liner looks.

Kenzo Paris

 Skin is flawless and fresh with a pop of colour to give a pinched cheek effect. The lips are stained with a rose-bud tint.

Ryan Lo London


Psychedelic quirkiness with splashes of embellishment.

Charlotte Olympia London

Get creative with glitter and work outside the natural boundaries of the eyes. 

Fausto Puglisi Milan

Use vibrant mattes teamed with neutral satins for interesting textures.

Thom Browne New York

The Loose group is up on Monday.
