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.

Hair - - Ramp To Reality -

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.

Day Glow

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.

Light FX

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.
