THISDAY ARISE AFRICAN COLLECITVE AND JUAN CARLOS OBANDO FASHION SHOWS: MAC COSMETICS

Hello Divas!

Remember no matter what you are going through, you can always turn it around!

So far Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week has been simply fantastic! MAC Cosmetics is definitely setting the tone for Spring make-up. The face for spring includes healthy looking skin with natural warm colors.

At the Thisday Arise African Collective Show, the lead MAC Makeup Artist, Fatima, created a simple but classic look. Her inspiration for the look was the fiery orange red color used in the Jewel Collection. Specifically she used a strong red lip with sheer lightweight foundation, black smudged gel eyeliner, and no mascara. Here is the look:

The MAC Products used were:

Lips – Mix of Pure lip Pigment and Park Side lipstick

Face- Face and Body Foundation

Eyes- Fluid Gel Eyeliner. No Mascara just curled lashes.

At the Juan Carlos Obando Show MAC Lead Make-up Artist, Fulvia Fanolfi created a look that was reminiscent of “Old Westerns”, which was Obando’s inspiration when he created the Spring 2010 Collection. Fulvia used colors that included the colors of the desert. As a result, she used browns, bronzes, and taupes to create a dusky look.

The MAC Products used were:

Face – A blend of MAC NC45 and NC55 on the cheeks, Bronzer, and the color Taupe for countouring.

Eyes – Brown Breeze eyeshadow was used on the eyes.

Lips – Brown Breeze eyeshadow was used on the lips as well.

Here is the look:

As Fulvia stated, “the look is very monochromatic and cinematographic as if the model had been exposed to the sun for a month.”

Stay tuned for more Spring Beauty Trends!

  1. How exciting! I love these beauty looks. Of course, because I’m somewhat laissez-faire (read: lazy!) about applying makeup, these enhanced natural looks are really inviting to me. I’ll have to try to accomplish that “month in the sun” look soon 🙂 Thanks for keeping us posted on all the NYC Fashion Week Fun!
