MAC A/W 16 Trend report

Sorry to talk about Autumn/Winter before we have dipped our toe fully in Summer but here is your heads-up on what's what for makeup courtesy of the MAC trend report.
 The trends sit under two umbrellas of Strict and Loose.

The Strict group

Makeup is an accessory to the face. Accents of glitter and rainbow liners. Embellishing the facial features whilst keeping the skin fresh and plumped.

Sharp Trend

 This trend has an emphasis on the lips. Dark cherry lips with a vinyl finish. Precision is key so dig out your lip liners and give them a good sharpen. 

Max Mara Milan
Hyper real, satin finish skin and a played down eye. Blusher is barely there whilst the brows are soft and fluffy but still tamed.

Gareth Pugh London

Proenza Schouler New York  

 Razor trend

Tough extreme black eyes in a modern punk style. 

Giamba Milan

Using liner to create unique shapes. Let your artistic flare go wild and step away from the normal liner looks.

Kenzo Paris

 Skin is flawless and fresh with a pop of colour to give a pinched cheek effect. The lips are stained with a rose-bud tint.

Ryan Lo London


Psychedelic quirkiness with splashes of embellishment.

Charlotte Olympia London

Get creative with glitter and work outside the natural boundaries of the eyes. 

Fausto Puglisi Milan
Use vibrant mattes teamed with neutral satins for interesting textures.

Thom Browne New York

The Loose group is up on Monday.


  1. Most of the photos are quite scary.

  2. It's fair to say these are quite bold looks so are likely to be hard for the average to pull off. Oh well, it's certainly worth a try lol X


  3. Hmmm... not sure I'll be even attempting the "Elastic band round the face" look!Although it's a novel way to emphasise cheekbones!
    I know these are editorial photos so they're not really meant for us mere mortals to be trying to pull off at home, but I agree with Martina - they are pretty scary!

  4. Yep, totally dislike hearing about A/W when we're barely into Summer HOWEVER, this trend report is EVERYTHING! I am totally onboard with the razor sharp liner (I am an eyeliner enthusiast!) & the Kaleidoscope eyes! Even though these are editorial shots, I believe us mortals can also rock these looks, why save it for magazines and the runway? ;)


  5. I love the glitter eye trend, it would be great for festivals and parties!
