MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for Spring-Summer 2017

 

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection for Spring-Summer 2017

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Full Face Kit - Moons of Saturn

 

Hi everyone! I was invited by MAC India a couple of weeks back to attend their Spring-Summer 2017 Trends event. It was an interactive session with MAC India Senior Artist Sonic Sarwate about the hottest beauty trends this season. Its all about individual expression when it comes to trends this year. Makeup is more real than ever before and that doesn’t necessarily mean natural, but real in terms of what is ‘real‘ to you. Wearing a bold flick of kohl may be natural to someone while to someone else, a pop of color on the lips may be what makes them feel their best. Trends are more flexible than they’ve ever been before and its all about your own interpretation of a look. Some of the other trends this season are wet (glossy-looking) makeup with strategically placed highlights, color, which may be in pop or subtle form and monochrome makeup. While I’m not one to follow trends too closely, they do give some fresh ideas and inspiration fpr trying out new looks!

I also received a goodie bag at the event with some pieces from the Makeup Art Cosmetics collection for Spring-Summer 2017. MAC has collaborated with 3 makeup artists to create this HUGE collection! Thanks to MAC India for the generous gift! I’m sharing quick thoughts on the products I was gifted below.

MAC Shadescents Ruby Woo Lipstick

 

Hi everyone! The MAC Shadescents collection, which consists of 6 fragrances inspired by the most iconic MAC lipsticks, hits Indian stores on March 17th! They have relaunched the 6 lipsticks as well in a limited edition packaging and I have to say, the color-coordinated tubes looks really sleek and beautiful. There are 6 lipsticks (Rs 1500) and 6 coordinating perfumes (Rs 4500) in this collection – Heroine (purple, matte), Ruby Woo (deep red, retro matte), Lady Danger (bright coral red, matte), Candy Yum-Yum (bright neon pink,matte), Velvet Teddy (neutral nude, matte) and Crème d’Nude (pale beige, cremesheen). I received the Ruby Woo set for review. I am a HUGE fan of the lipstick so I was quite keen to try out the perfume.

MAC x Mariah Carey Collection | Swatches, Look

 

Hi everyone! The MAC Mariah Carey arrived in India some time back and I got a few products to review. Everything in this collection is gorgeous and MAC India packaged the products really beautifully too! The frosted silver and gold packaging, with the abundant glitter, embodies Mariah Carey’s style really well. I created a sparkly silver eye for this look, paired with glowing bronzed skin and glossy nude lip! Read on for more details and product images.

3 Party Looks for Indian skin | Video Tutorial

 

Hi everyone! As the year comes to an end, holiday season parties are on everyone’s mind. I’ve been really into doing party makeup looks these past few weeks and here are 3 of my most recent videos for some party makeup inspiration. I love a red lip as it instantly brightens and lifts the whole face. To give a little party spin to a classic red lip-winged liner combination, I added a thin silver liner with the black. This look is really striking, definitely party-worthy and quite easy to do. You don’t need any eye shadows for this look! I used my favorite red lipstick – MAC Ruby Woo for this look. If you haven’t been keeping up with the news, MAC is now available at Nykaa.com 🙂

Red Lips or smokey eyes may not be everyone’s cup of tea. For fans of a nude look, I did a soft gold party look last week which pairs a soft brown lip with a gold eye. To add a little festive spin to it, I used a gold pigment over the eyes, with a soft cut crease. Winged liner always looks pretty and I made sure to use a generous bit of highlighter on the cheekbones for a golden glow.

For those who love the drama of a black smokey eye, this sparkly smokey eye look would be perfect! I generally don’t do black smokey eyes as they can be difficult to pull off but I loved how the silver pigment added some sparkle and shine to a flat smokey eye. To keep the focus on the eyes, I used a neutral blush and warm nude lip.
