MAC Spring Summer Makeup Trends 2011

Beauty this season is all about: focusing on the counterpoints that make a makeup modern. It’s about understanding how To perfectly complement yet counterbalance the mood of a designer’s collection with the right beauty statement…or how To translate the season’s retro references into a contemporary makeup By means of subtle tweaks. More than ever, makeup artists are exploring the idea that it’s all about the juxtapositions…

A vivid basquiat-bold lip on a stripped-Back skin (pop-classic).

Saccharine sweet colour applied in an avant-garde manner (ice-dream).

A stripped Back, minimalist face To counter a complex collection (Raw-fined).
Exploring the precise points of contrast between light and shade in a tan-toned face (terra-copper).

Whatever the vibe, this season’s makeup is Big on brave statements, experimental textures, handsome femininity and, above all, an excitement about putting the art Back in artistry…

Boldly go forth!

Classic shapes, uber saturated colour take a classically precise lip or a sleek liquid liner and turn it on its head with a basquiat treatment of colour. Think chemical orange. Fluoro hibiscus pink. Ascerbic magenta.

RED is still relevant, but it has dropped last season’s glamour and picked up an edgier vibe. Hot, energetic and always worn with a counterbalance of low-key skin and most probably a mascara-less lash. It’s taking the dominant fashion idea of colour blocking and translating it on the face. This makeup takes classic shape and perfect placement, then turns it up with super saturated colours. Up the intensity!


“it’s bohemian and arty rather than draggy or overly retro – there’s definitely a SENSE of real decadence and fun behind makeup this season.” artist: miranda joyce

“careful consideration of textures and placement when using Such statement colours is So key, or the look can quickly become Too theatrical: it’s about a canvas that’s minimally perfected and illuminized, and placement that’s really about pure beauty statements…the key words here are control and balance for what is one of the most feminine looks of the season.”
artist: lyne desnoyers

Pastel shades, avante-garde application.

The flora-fauna fantasies on SS2011’S runways have alighted into makeup: pastel shades have shrugged off their bridal ways and come over all clean, controlled and uncannily pretty. The new pastels are about taking super delicate colours but wearing them in a way that effectively makes them as accessible as naturals, only with a more directional feel.

Chalky not pearlescent, more futuristic-mod than mother-of-the-bride, the new way . To wear shades of lilac, lemon, pistachio, marshmallow and Duck-Egg is as one simple statement, on a face that’s otherwise perfected in gentle takes on taupe and nude. Pretty with a punked-up undertone, this is super feminine at its most forward thinking…
“the modern pastel is all about technology and technique – it’s To Do with changing up the texture with a gloss or a super matte finish…it really taps into the feeling that this is very much an artistic, brave and experimental season.” artist: nadine luke
“i’m definitely feeling the direction for Tough makeup done in very pretty colours – it gives an edge that’s still very chic and beautiful.” artist: terry barber

Contrasting textures maximizing the minimal is where this season’s bare, stripped-Back TREND is heading: poles apart from the androgynous, blanked-out beauty we’ve SEEN in the past, the contemporary incarnation of natural beauty is altogether more feminine and multi-faceted with an elegantly industrial edge. Texture – most vitally gloss accents – against smooth mattes are a key point, as is skin that’s perfected as much By the prepping as the makeup: a season for heavy, multi-layered bases this is not. And while instances abound of designers going for a simply honed, monochromatically pale face, it’s executing one clean, minimalist gesture on an otherwise nude skin that’s making pared-Back aesthetics look most relevant Now. ..nude, minimal makeup,

“i’m wiping the foundation off the lids and cheekbones So that the natural skin stain comes through – it’s a deconstructed construction.” artist: alex Box

“it’s all about the PREP of the skin – conditioning and nourishing it To the max: whipping a mix of moisturelush cream, fix + and care blends essential oils into the skin with a 187 brush is the ultimate healthy ‘skin cuisine.’” artist: Sam bryant

Terra Copper:

Modern bronze, precise application tan shades have BEEN given an intelligent rethink this season.

Think 70S in spirit: sculpted cheekbones in honey Buff tones, lips lushed-up in caramel lacquer, monochromatic faces gently sunlit in skin-mimicking bronze tones with shadows and highlights in all the right places…it’s healthy, handsome and references all those amazonian icons of bruce weber, lauren hutton, jane birkin and talitha getty… But in a believable, born-with-it way. Not To BE confused with an over- perfected, seamlessly DEEP perma-tan, the modern way To wear bronze is monochromatically, satiny and very specifically placed. This is sunned, at its most specific…

“it’s about using one bronzer – definitely one without sparkle, like our new mineralize bronzer – with three brushes! Take a 116 To contour the cheeks, a 224 To shade the eye and a 219 (the ‘pencil brush’) To line the eyes with a soft shadow near the lash line. Add a dash of lip Balm and you’re good To go.” artist: gordon espinet

“it’s very chic, giving dimensions To the face with a very soft illusion of toffees and warm browns – it’s about putting definition into the face without looking overly makeup-Py.” artist: lisa butler

Mineralize skinfinish natural (available 2011) goldon bronze, iridescent powder/loose shadowy ,pro sculpting powder, tan pigment ,cream colour base in mid-tone sepia ,cream colour base in bronze ,cream colour base in bamboo, cream colour base in luna, lust lipglass, freckletone lipstick, chai lipglass, teddy eye kohl

  4. I only get time for lipstick these days.. kids at home with hols, mornings super busy! I love the lips in Terra Copper!

  5. I love raw-fined….it is so apt for this sweltering heat…i dont have the patience to apply and then re-apply my makeup every few hours. But i have such super-pigmented lips that it becomes impossible for me to get the nude lips….so for me, raw fined sans the nude lips.
