MAC @ Preen S/S 2011

INSPIRATION: “The colors of the makeup are inspired by Egypt, the colors of the sand. The clothes have beautiful pale blues and lavenders so we’re doing a little blue on the eye as well. Very Catherine Deneuve, but super minimal.” — James Kaliardos

MAC @ Preen

“The colours of the collection inspired the face — natural tones, with mauve, pinks, and lavender for a pretty, romantic yet futuristic look.” — James Kaliardos

Makeup How-to

  • Eyes: Pink Freeze Eyeshadow brushed along the lower lash line. Quite Spoiled (Fall 2010) Eyeshadow softly applied to the crease of the eyelid. Beautiful Iris and Quite Spoiled layered and winged out horizontally from the outer corner of the eye.
  • Face: Studio Moisturecover Concealer applied to the nose, eyelids, and under the eyes, for a satin finish. Blot Powder dabbed into the shine areas. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural brushed along the cheekbones and temples to contour the face.
  • Lips: MAC Pink Cream Colour Base dabbed onto the center of the lip.
