MARCHESA-1

Gorgeous skin and a gorgeous lip were front and center today at Marchesa. Gucci Westman for M•A•C Cosmetics chose a fuchsia lip as the focal point. She was inspired by the bright and pastel fabrics in the collection, and she also said, “it looks great with all skin tones. Fuchsia is chic; it’s like vintage Saint Laurent”.

new-york-fashion-week-kate-spade-makeup-2The look at kate spade new york, true to form, was optimistic, fresh, springy and modern–a.k.a. the kate spade girl. For natural, glowing skin, M•A•C lead artist Romy Soleimani started by massaging Studio Moisture Cream into the skin and added Studio Finish Concealer + Fix Foundation where needed. For the eyes, Romy mixed medium water base with M•A•C Pigments applied just above the lash line. She finished the look with Haute + Naughty Mascara in black. The lips were a simple but pretty soft pink using M•A•C Lipstick in Saint Germain.

We’re extra excited about the M•A•C Cosmetics ‘Nordstrom’s Finest’ Eyeshadow Palette. Wanting to put together the top shadow colors we think you’ll love for fall, our beauty buyers worked with the team at M•A•C to create a Nordstrom-exclusive palette that includes them all. That’s where the “finest” part comes in! One of our makeup artists, Sarah Swain, created two gorgeous looks with these most-wanted eyeshadows at Studio N—golden hues with a hint of autumnal glimmer and an ombré deep-berry smolder.

WASH-AND-DRY-BROW_Beauty_300
Brows are back in a big way! Beautiful brows act as a frame for your face, so it’s important to shape them properly. Luckily, M∙A∙C has three different brow products within the Wash & Dry Collection that will help enhance the look of brows.

Fullness and Definition for Fine Brows:

M∙A∙C’s Fluidline Brow Gel is great for anyone trying to achieve a fuller, defined brow. You can paint on hairs using your choice of color along with a M∙A∙C 210 Precise Eye Liner brush. This product creates dimension in a very natural way.

M•A•C Cosmetics Senior Artist Gina Bettelli dishes out tips on getting that warm, healthy summer glow without the need for exposure to harmful UV rays. 
Sunless tan makeup tips
The perfect sunless tan is a look all of your favorite celebrities have, and you can too! It’s that sandy, caramel tone that’s both chic and effortless. Achieving the perfect tan is about getting the finished look to be believable. Here’s how to do it.

MAC Cosmetics Wash & Dry Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder is a unique gel formula that feels lightweight and sculpts the face. It’s a silky, sheer powder in realistic, sun-soaked shades–like M∙A∙C Wash & Dry’s Golden Rinse. Sweep the bronzer along your forehead, temples and jaw in the shape of a “3” for an everyday warmth using the 126 Split Fibre Large Face Brush.

Take your tan to the next level by dusting Studio Sculpt Defining Bronzing Powder in a “W” shape across cheeks, nose and chin. Whisk Mineralize Skinfinish powder high on the cheekbones with a fluffy brush to imitate a sunny flush.

For a luxurious, glowy base, prep your face for bronzer and finishing powder with Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation and soak up all the approving nods from your peers.

M∙A∙C Cosmetics Senior Artist Ashley Rudder explains how to re-create the face used for Kate Spade’s A/W ’15 runway show at New York Fashion Week.

“What was your favorite show this season?” That’s a question I keep hearing in the wake of Fashion Month. A slight bit of panic ensues after anyone asks me what my favorite looks were this season! However, as I mentally scroll through all of the glorious A/W ’15 shows, a few standout looks come to mind: perhaps the romantic, smoky-grey eyes that were created at Thom Browne? Or the futuristic “Bond Girl” black-and-white eyeliner at The Blonds?

Surprisingly enough, the look at Kate Spade–created by M∙A∙C Cosmetics Director of Makeup Artistry Lyne Desnoyers–has remained my makeup crush all season long!

I don’t want to keep this crush to myself, so here is how you can get the look (one you might get after walking on a brisk fall evening through the woods) with its subtly flushed cheeks and rosy pouts.
