You know I cover mostly fashion when I attend fashion weeks, but after your numerous requests, I decided to concentrate a little more on beauty this season! And it was a good decision, because it allowed me to spend the whole week with the experts at Maybelline New York (and their amazing lead makeup artist, Grace Lee), who created the looks for the 28 shows presented this season.
Out of this impressive number, I chose my favourite four. I will feature them throughout the next few days… but let me start right now with Quebec’s own Mackage!
At Mackage this season, it was all about perfection… A perfect skin with a perfect burgundy lip! To achieve this look you, of course, have to concentrate on getting a flawless skin. To do so, Grace Lee used the Fit Me! Foundation & Pressed Powder (+ a darker shade for the contour) and the Instant Age Rewind Eraser (5,7 & 6).
The pretty highlight on the cheeks is the result of what’s now known as the Grace Lee concoction: Baby Lips Moisturizing Balm & Color Tattoo Metal 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Barely Branded (9 & 1). Trust me, you have to try it!
Another important part of the look are the eyebrows, perfectly shaped with the Master Shape Brow Pencil and brushed (so important this season!) with the Great Lash Clear Mascara (4 & 3). Talking about mascara, the one used here is the brand new The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara (2), which is coming out in May 2013.
As you can see, burgundy lips are still big for next fall! To achieve Mackage’s lips, Grace mixed the Color Sensational Lipstick in Deepest Cherry and added the SuperStay 14hr lipstick in Wine and Forever (10 & 8) to get a worn-in effect.
So, what do you think of this look? Would you try it next season… I know I will!
