We have three breakdowns straight from the amazing artists at MAC HQ from Day 1 of Fashion Week!

“The look is inspired by stain glass, it’s subtle but with strength.” — Nadine Luke

Eyes: Root cream colour base blended onto lids layered with Soba eyeshadow on top. Redhead and Blonde mineralize skinfinish as a wash over lids and blended toward brow bone. Brownborder technakohl pushed into top and bottom lash lines for a diffused but clean line. Fascinating eye kohl applied to bottom water line, followed by Coal Black pro lash mascara.

Face: Pink Swoon powder blush blended onto cheeks with Blonde mineralize skinfinish dusted on top of blush. Silver Dusk iridescent loose powder to highlight high planes of face.

Lips: Creamy Pink lipstick blended with lip conditioner and brushed onto lips.

“She is a school girl – she is cool but doesn’t know it. The look is a mix of feminine and masculine, to mirror the collection which is bohemian and military.” – Hung Vango

Eyes: Quarry eye shadow – applied to lids as a base. Scene eye shadow – diffused in crease and outer corners of eyes to contour and add a smokey quality. Retrospeck eye shadow – dusted above the crease to highlight. Smolder eye kohl – to line top and bottom lash lines and concentrating on the outer corners of the eyes. Coal Black pro lash mascara – applied to curled lashes.

Face: Fawntastic cream colour base – applied to cheeks as a base. Shell cream colour base – touched onto high planes of the cheekbones for a highlight. Lilicent, Uncommon, or Ladyblush blushcreme – appropriate shade of creme blush was blended onto cheeks according to skin tone.

Lips: Lilicent, Uncommon or Ladyblush blushcreme – patted onto lips in shades matching cheeks.

“The look is a soulful voodoo girl – a girl who can cast spells. The concentration is on the plum smokey eye but the other features are still present.” – James Kaliardos

Eyes: Sketch eye shadow – applied with the greatest concentration of product in the crease then blended down toward the lid and up toward the brow bone. also brushed around lower lashline. Auto-de-blu tecknakohl liner – drawn on lower waterline of the eyes. Pearl cream colour base – blended into inner corners of the eyes. Zoomblack zoom lash mascara – one coat applied to top lashes and lightly touched onto lower lashes.

Face: Fun & Games beauty powder blush – applied to cheekbones and blended toward the apples of the cheeks. Pearl cream colour base – touched onto the top of the cheekbones to highlight.

Lips: Blankety lipstick & C-thru tinted lipglass – blended onto the lips with a soft edge.

    I’m so excited (can you tell?!?!) Also, ‘blonde’ and ‘redhead’ mineralize skinfinishes!! i haven’t heard of those before!!

    • Hopefully it IS indeed new. On occasion, they mix up product names, LOL.

      The mineralize skinfinishes may be part of a late December launch or a spring launch. I haven’t had either confirmed yet.

    I like this new face chart face better than the old evil queen one (reminds me of the villain in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty cartoon). Wonder if MAC will switch to this drawing. I actually drew my own face chart face b/c the MAC one bothered me so much :P
