During the recent London Fashion Week I had the privilege to visit a few runway shows. Being born and raised in the United Kingdom gives me a little advantage as I tend to see the city of London thru slightly pink glasses. That said; pink glasses or not, I had a blast. Especially the backstage buzz while catching up with friends and colleagues in the beauty business and being welcomed by M.A.C. Cosmetics with such open arms.
Prior to one of the shows I attended the M.A.C. hub at Carnaby Street, a lovely pink vibes playground with likeminded creative people. The new and upcoming collections where shown and I had the privilege to play with all of it.
The Studio fix foundation SPF 15 now comes in 60 shades divided over 6 color families. From light to deep dark. The 24hr concealer is such a lovely product and this range is also extended to 30+ shades. One of the other items I can call my new best friend is the Studio Fix Sculpt And Shade contour palette.
What I love about this product is that you can highlight and shape in a subtle way, (without the sheen) in the meantime giving a soft focus on the skin. I adore a highlighter as it brings out the cheekbones and makes you look healthy. This matte version is refreshing and more sophisticated.
Another new product is the Powder Kiss lipstick. 16 colors of soft focus moisture – matte kiss of color. It was created and developed at fashion weeks to achieve the seemingly effortless, perfectly blurred lip that NOW dominates the runway. What’s your thing?
Backstage during the Ashley William show the focus was clearly on the EYES with neutral and flawless looking skin. When it comes to spring / summer 2019 trends the focus will be set more and more on the eyes. When it comes to a catwalk to closet look using mono colors and blending is key. Feeling like a rock chick? Glow for it and be that girl in all its glory. Just try to choose which way to go to playfully.
I am looking forward to all the opportunities for the upcoming season. What about you?
Manny thanks to MAC Cosmetics Netherlands and UK for the fabulous ride.
