We have three breakdowns straight from the amazing artists at MAC HQ from Day 4 of Fashion Week! Can you spot some new products?

“The look is dramatic but with a softness to it. The inspiration for the collection was botticelli and the contrast of black and white, so the look is a contrast of a strong eye and a soft lip.” – Diane Kendal

Eyes: Smolder eye kohl – along lash and blended into crease. Lucky Tom eye shadow – swept across lid and under eye.

Face: Sculpt mac pro sculpting powder – swept below the cheekbone to contour. Tippy powder blush – applied to cheek. Blonde mineralize skinfinish – used as a highlight on the cheekbone.

Lips: Nude MAC PRO cream colour base – patted onto lips. Lip conditioner – patted over nude cream colour base. Bubbles lipstick – layered over lip conditioner.

“There’s a french vibe going on. It’s a bit edith piaf but the skin and the sensual orange lip keep it contemporary.” – James Kaliardos

Eyes: select cover-up concealer – applied to lids as a base. Copperplate eye shadow – drawn into the crease of the eyelids and blended in a round shape down over the lids, up and out toward the brow bone and along the lower lash line. Mascara X – applied to curled lashes (top only).

Cheeks: Fun and Games powder blush – buffed into the upper portion of the cheek bones and temple area in a “c” shape. Luna cream colour base – touched onto the high planes of the cheekbones.

Lips: Gentle Coral tinted lip conditioner spf 15 – applied as a base and top coat to lips, then blotted. Rich Coral mac pro cream colour base – patted onto lips.

“The inspiration for the collection was how women worked during war time but still looked glamorous, so the look is tough but elegant and sophisticated at the same time.” – Diane Kendal

Eyes: Omega or Coquette eye shadow – brushed onto brows in a straight line. MAC PRO Brown cream colour base -applied to crease, wrapped around outer corners of the eye to the very beginning of the lower lash line and blended. Blacktrack fluidline – brushed in between the lashes.

Face: Pear cream colour base – used on the tops of cheekbones and bridge of nose as a highlight.

Lips: MAC Red lipstick – applied as a base layer. Invisible MAC PRO Set Powder – used to set the lipstick. Red PRO pigment – dusted on top of set powder for a highly pigmented matte lip. Red Electric PRO pigment – added on top of Red pigment to create a pink hue.

    • It sure sounds like it, Pia! Usually MAC tests products at backstage during fashion weeks for the season – so this fall, they were testing spring ’09 products.
