Aquatic hues to match the sea­son’s show­ers

As na­ture changes its course from the scorch­ing summer to the play­fully cool mon­soon, M.A.C in­tro­duces a range that’s as beau­ti­ful on the in­side as on the out­side. With a beau­ti­ful aqua blue pack­ag­ing re­sem­bling wa­ter droplets, the range brings to you lip colours, pow­der foun­da­tion, blushes, lip glosses, eye shad­ows and nail colours in­spired by the colours on the seabed. The col­lec­tion also in­cludes kohl pen­cils and makeup brushes. A ma­jor in­spi­ra­tion for the col­lec­tion is swim­mer and ac­tress Es­ther Wil­liams, who glam­ourised bright make-up dur­ing the 40s and 50s. Per­haps the best thing about the prod­ucts is that the pow­der prod­ucts have a very creamy tex­ture, thus giv­ing you the glow of creme with the com­fort of us­ing pow­der. M.A.C de­sign artist, Sonic Sar­vate, an­swers a few of our queries:

How use­ful will these prod­ucts be for the mon­soon; how long will they sur­vive?

All these prod­ucts, de­spite their creamy tex­ture, are gel-based and even if wa­ter falls on them, they won’t budge.

So, are they wa­ter­proof?

Not re­ally, but even if they come in con­tact with wa­ter, they won’t smudge. That doesn’t mean you can get drenched wear­ing them, but the hu­mid­ity cer­tainly won’t spoil your face.

If we com­pare summer and mon­soon trends, what would be the dif­fer­ence?

This time, spring, summer and mon­soon have been ex­actly the same for me. Bright lip colours have con­stantly been trend­ing. Even if you are in the mood for makeup, you can skip ev­ery­thing else and just dab on a bright lip colour—it in­stantly lights up your face. Min­i­mal­ism has been bang-on trend—and it’s great be­cause the less makeup you have on, the less touch-ups you need.
