Raw beauty redefined
This Spring-Summer is all about raw beauty, freshness and femininity — a direct contrast with the gothic and dramatic looks seen in Autumn Winter 2013, says M.A.C as it presents the newest make-up trends around the globe.
Healthy, natural beauty has never been so synonymous with modern make-up as it is this season. As minimalism takes centre stage, radiance and reality was preferred backstage over drama and high-glamour. Ace make-up artistes Mickey Contractor, Director of Make-up Artistry, and Sonic Sarwate, Senior Artist, M.A.C India, decode the latest trends for HAIR.
Raw, rugged and healthy were the most-quoted descriptors backstage this season. The emphasis was on dewy, fresh-faced, glowing make-up as opposed to a matte finish. It’s more about peach and pink cream blushes mixed with nuances of sculpting creams and soft highlights instead of a bronze tanned look.
CC Thru Color
Blushes and colours are anchored in filtered instagram effects and hazy shading with lilacs and peaches. Eggshell tints projected features and brightened faces and artistes tuned into the intrinsic effect that cold and warm shades have upon the complexion. Using lilac, peach, yellow, blue and green, artistes are redefining and widening the concept of ‘natural’ make-up.
Expanding on the moonlit look, the new approach to light-reflecting make-up injects an optimistic life force into whites and lights. With glazes of whites on the cheeks, artistes created a luminescent look without adding any colour.
The New Eye-Deal
When it comes too eye make-up, masculine angularity has been dropped and the detailing has shifted back to more feminine aspects. Artistes are reconsidering liner, lashes and kohl in a manner that the natural look of the face remains untouched. The key lies in accentuation, not dramatic makeovers.
