Bright pink is the must-color!

Bright pink is the must-color for spring summer 2016. Make-up artist Lottie tells us more about it. Watch the video and/or read the interview with Lottie and try it out yourself!

Today we did a graphic pink eye, two times. So we have a lighter pink underneath the eyes and a sort of fuchsia pink on the top. The clothes are very beautiful. Beautiful and relaxed. So we wanted something that was going to be a little vibrant and a new balance with the neutral palette which is in the show.

What did you use for the skin?

Our sponsor today is Orlane Paris which is an amazing skin line. We used their Orlane moisturizer [Orlane Super-Moisturizing Light Cream]. So that is why they all are very glowy. And the foundation is also Orlane Paris [Teint Absolu Treatment Foundation]. It is really nice because it still looks like skin. Everyone looks perfect. They have a nice glow.

On the cheeks?

On the cheeks we used Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is actually a contour color. And we used Warm Coral.

It this look going to be a trend for next summer?

I hope so. Everybody likes to use color in the summer.

The key to modern beauty? Don’t use too much foundation

Terry Barber, Director of Make-up Artistry of M.A.C, reveals the make-up secret to modern beauty. Trendystyle interviewed the make-up guru backstage at the Ter et Bantine FW 2015 2016 Fashion Show in Milan. Watch the video interview! (or/and read on)

The look, Terry Barber explained, is very extremely natural beauty, almost quite raw, actually quite make-up free, but still quite luxurious. It is literally a very transparent skin, cool in color but soft, with an almost skintone brown stain on the eye and a tiny little gloss on the inner corners. So it has got that element of futurism to it, but it is very natural. This woman is strong, she understands luxury and realizes that she doesn’t have to push her beauty too much. It should always be very effortless, just enough, it is a very sort of chic minimalism.

How to create a transparent skin?

I am actually using a new M.A.C product called Time Check Lotion, which is like a primer that slightly blurs the skin. It softens the whole tone of the skin so you don’t have to use too much base. I think that is the key to modern beauty: not to use too much base…

Diane Kendal and the makeup look at the Salvatore Ferragamo SS2016 Show

Backstage at the Salvatore Ferragamo SS 2016 Show we met and interviewed Diane Kendal. Diane was the key makeup artist and was heading the M.A.C team backstage at the Show. Listen, learn and read how to copy this strong and feminine makeup look.

This season for Ferragamo we are making the girls a very fresh base with two colors, grease paints [M.A.C Trend Forecast Spring ’16/Eye in the colors ‘On My Watchlist’ and ‘Back in the Swing’] mixed on the contour of the eye, brushed up to the eyebrow. And then we are putting Tenderling Blush right over the lid and up to the browbone too, giving a very strong, defined look to the eye. But it is all very blended so there is no hard lines, with curling lashes.

Tenderling Blush we are just putting on the apple of the cheek to get that really gorgeous fresh overall look and on the lips just some lip balm and a little bit of foundation to take down the color. So the girls look rea lly strong but feminine at the same time.

How to copy the look. Step by step:

Make-up Salvatore Ferragamo SS 2016, make-up: Diane Kendal, ph. Charlotte Mesman
  • Massage Face and Body Foundation M.A.C in the skin to perfect the skin.
  • Press Mineralize Concealer in any area that needs more coverage. This make-up look is all about beautiful skin.
  • Add some Tenderling Blush on the cheek for a fresh look.
  • Groom your eyebrows. Fill the brows in with a grey color but not too much. Brush them up.
  • For the eyes use M.A.C Trend Forecast Spring ’16/Eye. Apply ‘On My Watchlist’ (cool grey silver with silver pearl) on the crease and blend in to the brows hair. Apply ‘Back in the Swing’ (orange peach with gold pearl) on top of it. Powder it with Tenderling Blush.
  • Curl the lashes.
  • Soften the lips with lip conditioner.

Romantic smokey eyes. Video interview with make-up artist Jessica Nedza

Video interview with make-up artist Jessica Nedza (for M.A.C Cosmetics) backstage at the Ermanno Scervino SS2016 fashion show:

The collection is very romantic with a lot of pastel colors so we wanted to spice it up a little and make the girls a little bit more sexy. So we decided to do very sexy smokey eyes. I am using the Fairy Fair Eye shadow from M.A.C for it.

Then we also have the new kajal eyeliner which is called Squid Twist. We used it to create a bit of a lash line and also inside the eye we put a bit of kajal to create a cat eye.

A part from that we have lots of highlights to make the girls look glamorous and to have a beautiful summery skin. We have a little bit of pastel peach color on the cheek. I used New Romantic from M.A.C.

And the lip is also a new product which is very nice because it is a kind of liquid lip that dries up and becomes matte. It gives this beautiful peachy color and it is called ‘Lady Be Good’. At the end of the day [just before the show] we are going to finish the make-up up with a eye gloss which has this beautiful plum color.

Additional make-up tips for this beauty look:

For the skin blend Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation M.A.C with concealer Studio Finish M.A.C. Add Extra Dimension Eye Shadow Amorous Alloy on the eyelid and highlight the brow bone and eye corner with Extra Dimension A Natural Flirt. Curl the lashes and use black mascara. Cover the eye brows with Studio Finish Concealer.
