MAC AW Fashion Week Trends - Arti-Tech
"Fall's four key beauty trends from Fashion Weeks around the world take a visionary approach to glamour - timelessly elegant and uncompromisingly modern."
This might be my least favorite of the looks so far, I am not into the avant-garde eye liner look in my normal life, I might try this look once but I wouldn't really do this look that much. Fluidline is used in this look but I wouldn't be using it to create the triangle on the corner of my eye that this look shows off.
'"This season isn't about liner being classic. It's about etching, about it creating a geometry on the face." - Gordon Espinet, MAC Vice President of Makeup Artistry."
The Arti-Tech look!
Fluidline - Used to draw a triangle through the outer corner of the crease to create the illusion of a floating end-flick of liner, giving architectural structure to the eye.
- Blacktrack - solid flat black
Brow Set - Grooms and defines the brows.
- Clear - colour-free
Zoom Lash - Lightly defines the upper lash line.
- Lofty Brown - ultra-rich blackened coco-brown
Prep + Prime Translucent Finishing Powder - Swept through the middle of the face to set and polish.
Studio Moisture Fix SPF 15 - Blended into the skin to hydrate and provide a luminous finish.
Strobe Cream - Blended into the skin to hydrate and provide a luminous finish.
Strobe Cream is a product that I have heard lots about from the MAC makeup artists but I have never used it myself nor had it ever recommended to me when I was at the counters. I have mostly heard that this is used for runway effects even though it is not a Pro-only product. I don't really know what type of finish this would create, I might be interested in using it for special occasions if it provides a subtle finish but I won't use it if it creates a very shimmery finish. I will have to ask my favorite MAC artist about this product before I make a decision...
Prep + Prime Translucent Finishing Powder has been on my shopping list for a few months now however my current jar of Korres powder is still over half full (I use very little of the product on a daily basis) so I will be buying this as soon my current product runs out. I know that I will get lots of use from this product...
This the last of the AW Fashion Week Trends, the first one with the red lips is still my favorite of the looks. I can't wait to start wearing all my favorite red lipsticks again over the next few weeks!
