During the week I shuffled along to the MAC SS13 trends presentation at XVA Gallery in DIFC Village. It was a really relaxing couple of hours (surrounded by makeup!) and I was lucky enough to be able to go backstage, have a snoop through some of their new products and have a chat with Caroline D, one of their amazingly talented artists from the UK, who incidentally – is also great craic!
Caroline created some beautiful looks for the show, my favourite of which is in the pictures above; a really graphic eye with nude skin which she did with minimal products. We also talked about her hair which, lets be honest, is totes amazing. Apparently, it’s not hard to maintain the bright pink colour as she has a permanent red shade underneath. Clever, eh?
There were four trend looks in total at the presentation, all of which you can see above; a metallic eye, soft burnished skin, a graphic eye and natural luminous skin. The models were all pretty stunning so each look was very impressive, I’m not sure how some of them would translate onto those of us with not so perfect skin though… Interestingly, there was also a little presentation about nail trends. Did you know you can mix clear nail polish with any powder product to make it that colour?! Mind blown! Cue much experimentation with pigments in the coming week.
Hope you all have a nice weekend, I will be working for most of it, hurrah! 🙂
