Backstage with MAC Cosmetics.

MAC makeup artists have been running around backstage at New York Fashion Week pretty feverishly. While they have been working hard, they have been nice enough to send me information on the makeup trends we will be seeing next Spring.

One of my favorite looks so far is that from the Luca Luca show, just on the runway yesterday.

Tom used bright Parrot blue eyeshadow on the eyelids, then covered the creases with a shimmery dark grey to give what he called "true sophistication."

There was an obvious lack of cheek color, which I personally think needed just a quick swipe of a nude pink.

To finish the look, model mouths were dabbed with N3 Lipstick - a putty-ish pink nude. 

The effect? A grown up in the eyes - and a tender young girl in the mouth.


Beautiful, and very wearable!
