From Runway to Real Way with Marco Louis. Resident Senior Artist MAC.
From Designer meetings and conceptualizing all the way to the finished product, runway makeup gives us a glamorous look into the vision of the designer and a taste for what lie ahead in the season to come.
Though is all very exciting. Re-creating these looks at home may be daunting. Here are a 3 easy steps to achieving a makeup look that is not only perfectly definitive of the times, but ensures a perfectly polished, flawless you.
SKIN SKIN SKIN! Protecting and preparing the skin before any makeup application is the single most important thing that no woman should omit. Much time is spent back stage refining and hydrating the models skin, not only for a perfect the end result. But also to make sure her skin is perfectly kept even with the removal of the makeup. Begin by massaging a generous amount of MAC Complete Comfort into the face and neck area with circular motions. This will sooth, hydrate and plump the skin for healthy radiant glow.
THOSE BLINKERS! No feature strikes a pose quiet like a dense set of lashes. Begin by coating yours with two coats of MAC Prep + Prime Lash. Using mascara like MAC Opulash in BAD BAD BLACK. Place the tip of your ring finger at the base of the upper lid. Pushing backward to reveal the upper waterline and the root of the lash. Holding your head back will minimize the chance of spills and smudges.Start coating from this point working the wand of the mascara from side to side upward.
Use the tip of your mascara wand to separate the lashes and add more volume to the center lashes top and bottom. And voila!
ACCESSORIZE! Every season color plays a vital role in bringing fantasy to life. Though the hues may change, a delicious pout is always En Vogue. To ensure protection, great opacity and true color, the preparation is key. For a red lip. Begin by sealing and feeding the lip with MAC Prep + Prime lip. Outline and fill the surface area of the lip with Cherry Lip Pencil-and finish off with the lustrous red that is MAC RED Lipstick.
TIP: Nurturing your skin when removing makeup is just as important as prepping. MAC Cleanse off Oil creates a foamy lather that will gently remove any prolong wear product while leaving your skin smooth and hydrated.
