MAC Spring / Summer 2014 trends

Wednesday, 13 August 2014

If names like Day-Glow, CC-Thru Colour and The New Eye-Deal excite you, then Spring 2014 is going to one fun season! MAC sets the trends this spring with their beautiful make-up designs and inspirations. MAC’s senior make-up artist, Michelle Lee Collins, took us through the looks. Here are BeautySouthAfrica’s top three favourites with quotes from leading international make-up artists:

It’s all about cream blushers and sculpting creams. This trend references the sun, sea, sand, water and air elements. “Whatever you do this season, the complexion needs has to be summery, gorgeous and glowing,” says Tom Pecheux. It needs to be natural and fresh.

#CC-Thru Colour
This has to be one of our favourite trends. It took inspiration from instagram-effects and hazy shading. Who thought that lilac and peach colours would be the chosen shades? “All the shades I’m using this season have a fleshy tone to them; it’s about playing with the tones that exist naturally on and in the skin,” says Lucia Pieroni.

#The New Eye-Deal
The more feminine aspect of the eye is back and this is where all the detail lies. There are no new products, just the good old liner, lashes and kohl. But, it’s how these products are applied this season that make the difference. “Certain details are timeless and beyond trend – it is the canvas of the skin, their execution and the mood elsewhere on the face that makes them modern,” Terry Barber clarifies.

    Cream blushers are great. They don;t give you that heavy makeup look.

    It looks youthful and beautiful, like being lit from within. It’s also not excessive it’s just subtle and sun-kissed enough, without coming off like an oil slick

    Going to a MAC counter is one of my favourite treats. I always save for the occasion and then work through my wish list of products.

    The black eyeliner in the last picture in the left corner looks so editorial. I like that MAC is focusing on glowing complexions, definitely summer-type skin.
