MAC Cosmetics Trendspot
To report on the wide range of makeup looks at a variety of the runway shows, MAC Cosmetics created its Trendspot Suite in the lobby of the Tents at Bryant Park. Each day, the latest cosmetic choices, lip colors, eye treatments and cheek colors, which were paired with the designers’ runway themes, were highlighted. For Carolina Herrera, the fall aesthetic included texture and color, with a mega dose of lip color, dark stained mouth with a brown and burgundy base and dusted with powder, in addition to black pigment dotted in the center of the lower lip for a bitten effect, all created by Diane Kendal. For Catherine Malandrino, Tom Pecheux followed the designer’s theme of green and organic with green eyes, using dark green, lime green and moss green together to create a rounded eye. The models wore no cheek color and displayed a matte nude lip, courtesy of MAC Lip Erase, which the makeup artist said was “like concealer and lipstick in one.”

DKNY did a fresh look, created by Charlotte Tilbury, with wide eyes and innocence portrayed with MAC’s Hot Hot Hot mascara. Mouths were wine stained, created by mixing two new shades of MAC’s Mattene Lipsticks, Lush and Rapturous, brown and rose together. A high cheek in pink completed the look. At Tuleh, makeup artist Polly Osmond took inspiration from Charlotte Rampling in the ’70s with a strong, metallic eye created with bronze pigment, topped by a chocolate shadow in the crease of the eye. The Ports’ 1961 show had a Gaelic feeling, and Tia Cibani of Ports 1961, created a mystical fairytale feeling. Isabelle LePage created makeup looks that mirrored the theme, with a pink skin tone, burgundy pigment lips, mixed with MAC’S Matte Gel in a tube, and used a berry lip gel on the eyes to create an ethereal look.
