Wanna know what the latest trends are in beauty? Here is a deep dive look into what MAC is reporting as the latest cosmetic couture trends for the summer! I’ve included face charts for a more detailed look.

REDD VELVET

From MacPro.com : REWORKING THE CLASSICS, and none more so than the red lip is a major idea this season. Looking back to forever gorgeous stalwarts like the crimson mouth, giving it a contemporary edge is an art in itself, and one that Artists absorbed themselves in the challenge for.

Tweaking the texture, shifting the traditional shape, amplifying or turning down the density or tone: what started off as past has been swiftly brought back into the present. It’s the ultimate perennial lip colour, but this season’s red is about taking a formal shade and wearing it in an informal manner. So while a red mouth inevitably smacks of a certain luxury and strength, its impact this time around is one of modern perfection rather than exaggeration or aggressive sexuality…

“Couture. Seductive. Rockabilly. Chic. Gothic. Lady Red has so many personalities.”
ARTIST: Tery Barber

SATIN EYES

satineyes From MacPro.com : TWEAKING THE TRADITIONAL VARIANTS of a black eye brings it back into focus this season without going down a generically “smokey” route. The rich intensity of a black-edged eye is there, but it’s the subtle, unexpected twists that Artists have given it that keep it cool more than classic. Pull out a liner rather than flicking it up, blow out a shadow in a squarer shape and always, always, leave off the mascara. From a simply sleek ribbon of liner to a big-time satin billow of inky shadow, the black eye is back and ready TO INSPIRE…

“This trend puts a little bit of theatre back in the face. Put the ‘show’ back into ‘fashion show’! It’s a call back to glamour but in a very reworked way…a black eye now is about taking one simple element and tailoring it to the face and working it more playfully.”
ARTIST: GORDON ESPINET

VOILE VEIL

voileveil From MacPro.com : LINELESS, SHADOWY, BEAUTIFULLY BLOWN OUT AND BLENDED: The dissipated shadows that graced faces this season have a soft focus and poetic feeling that couldn’t be more seamlessly attentive. The antidote to the hard luxury and strict silhouettes on the catwalk, the mellow mood of these shadows gives a simultaneous lightness and intensity to the face. The fabric of this face is all about a chiffon-like halo of soulful shades, blurred boundaries, out-of-focus camera effects, unspecific shapes…capture the vibe of ultimate low-key luxe…
“There’s no edges to this makeup.”  ARTIST: Georgina Graham

“You can see where these shadows started, but not where they stop…it’s about blending into nothingness.”  ARTIST: Neil Young

FOURPLY

fourply From MacPro.com : If you’re not making a statement with makeup this season, then the new way to do ‘bare’ steps in. Cue a very nuanced and rich look of texture and colour, pulling from a warmer palette of minky toffee, caramel, tea, ochre and rust that melds into, and seemingly stains, the skin. With a seamless complexion, slight contours, subtle highlights and lushly nude lips as the cornerstones of this look, Artists added a beautifully boyish air with a more masculine brow and a bare lash to give a ‘90s feel of tonal neutrality: feminine with an androgynous, yet oh-so-touchable side.

“It’s a very corseted look; it’s about makeup that supports the face.”
ARTIST: Terry Barber

What is your favorite face? I am really loving the seamless eyeshadow look ala Voile Veil! I am going to try that out! I did notice the splash of glitter over the top of the eye, which gives it a nice little glam touch.
