MAC SS13 Runway Trends - Sci-chedelic
"Step into SS13 with minimal, modern makeup. Focus on a fresh face, from luminously perfect and pure to gleaming bronze. Nuances of neons and singular brights glow against bare skin. It's all about ease, edge and effortless radiance."
Sci-chedelic looks as though it is bright lip against an otherwise almost bare face. I think that I could very easily get onboard with a pink variation of this look! "Colour with conviction. SS13 gets graphic, with bold, singular brights. "Poetic with a twist of something edgy, so gutsy and punk it's chic," affirms makeup artist Stephane Marias. View the complete look for Sci-Chedelic. here."
Here is the bright lip look from the MAC makeup artists...
Lipmix - Mix Fuschia and White to create a neon pink and applied through the outer corners, apply Orange on the lip towards the lower lip edge.
- Fuchsia - bright fuchsia
- Orange - bright orange
- White - whitest white
Pro Longwear Lip Pencil - Used to define the bow of lip and contour.
- More to Love - intense bluish pink
Blot Powder/Loose - Swept through the T-zone.
- Medium - suitable for most skintones
Select Cover-Up - Lightly blended over hydrated skin.
- Available in a range of shades to suit all skintones
This lip look is more what I had in mind but I will still need to alter it before I can wear it well. I will not be mixing all three shades of Lipmix to create the orange and pink lip look, I will be more likely to wait until Candy Yum Yum comes back in stock and then use it against an overwise almost bare face. I have never used Lipmix before and it looks like a high pigmented liquid lipstick but I don't really know anything about the product. Does anyone have any more information on it?
I have used the Select Cover-Up before and it is a great spot concealer especially for the under eye area. I am also interested in the Blot Powder/Loose and I do wonder if MAC has this product in a pressed version so that I can take it with me in my purse.
This is my favorite look so far but I will need to modify in order to make it work for my style. One more look left!
