Sadly I missed the Mac SS16 presentation but luckily I got my hands on a few key items and the coveted trend book that all us makeup artists want to get our hands on. There are always 4 key trends that Mac present as well as they products for each trend. SS16 has a variety of makeup trends from the bold colours, lashes, orange/red lips, a whole load of glitter and of course the no makeup makeup trend that always seems to be in.
If you didn’t check out my latest Elle beauty story we covered the bold colours that Mac call the crayon and aquatic trend. Click here to check out the story.
So here are the Mac SS16 Makeup Trends and Key Products:
The trend is all about bold primary colours either by using liners, mascara’s and cream and powder eyeshadows. its all about pushing makeup that much further but there are loads of looks that are totally wearable so if you looking to embrace it then head on down to Mav and invest in some of the Chromagrahic liners and pretty eyeshadow shades.
The Broken Doll trend is a big one for SS16 with gorgeous lashes and lots of mascara are the order of the day. If you looking to go bold that then the no 7 lashes are the way to go. The lashes were showcased in the presentation and look oh so pretty perfect with a fresh face and nude lips.the trend is all about using mascara and lashes to give an edgy feel and lots of attitude.
Its all about shimmer and glitter for the upcoming season with glitter and pigmets not only used on the eyes but also on the face great for festival season that is alost upon us.
Hot cherry is a massive trend with Lady Danger being a key product for SS16. Its definitely a favourite shade of mine its a gorgeous orange/red plus its matt in texture so it really has a modern feel. Whether its dabbed onto the middle of the lips or a full bold lip its gorgeous either way.
The nothing face and the raw refined trend is back again this season with skincare being a must have and products like the Fix + spray key in creating gorgeous dewy skin combined with the Mac Face and Body and Mac Studio Waterweight foundation the ultimate for beautiful skin. Brows are set with the clear brow set, eyes are washed with pro paintpot in groundwork and lips are preped with the prep and prime lip. Skin is beautifully highlighted with the Mac Mineralise skin finish with Global Glow being at the forefront.
