Makeup artist Mac Igarta does pretty a little differently on his feisty muse, Lauren Reid.
When you think of a “pretty” makeup look, pink lips, flushed cheeks and barely there eyeshadow usually come into mind. But if you’re not into rose-colored hues, why not opt for fiery cinnamon shades? With the resurgence of the ’90s browns, NARS makeup artist Mac Igarta creates a sultry alternative to the typical pinched-pink face on his current muse, rising talent and September 2016 Preview cover girl Lauren Reid.
“It’s all about neutral tones that look fresh,” says Mac, as he explains that this look is a play on (high)light and shadow. He also has a cool trick: “Dotting” the obvious spaces in between your lashes with liquid liner instead of drawing one bold flick for barely there lids and fuller lashes. Truth is, there are few products needed to cop this muted golden glow that looks pretty tough, too.
