M·A·C Makeup Looks at London Fashion Week: House of Holland, Mary Katrantzou and Charles Anastase

The good people over at M·A·C were kind enough to share their facecharts from the Fall 2010 shows during London Fashion Week. Today’s facecharts include: House of Holland, Mary Katrantzou, and Charles Anastase, whose shows took place on Saturday, February 20th.

House of Holland


“Tanned and glowing” was the look at House of Holland for their Fall 2010 collection. Says M·A·C artist, Lucia Pica, ” The inspiration for the clothes and hair is ‘ghetto girl from Queens’, so we wanted to take a step back with the makeup. It’s SIMPLY beautiful.” M·A·C Face and Body Foundation was applied one shade deeper than natural skin tone. Creme Colour Base in Bronze and Mid-Tone Sepia were mixed together and buffed into the cheekbones, forehead, and temples with a #168 brush. Beauty Balm or Mineralize All Over Lotion was then smoothed over the cheekbones, collarbones, and on the inner corners of the eyes. For eyes, Pica applied Creme Colour Base in Mid-Tone Sepia (blended over the eyelids and beneath the lower lashes). M·A·C Studio Fix Lash in Studio Brown was then combed through the top lashes. Lips remained bare, dressed only in M·A·C Lip Conditioner.

Mary Katrantzou


M·A·C artist, Val Garland described the look at Mary Katrantzou as “18th century ‘Dangerous Liasons’ woman. It’s a dark, dangerous lip which gives the face that painterly effect.” M·A·C Studio Moisture Fix SPF 15 was massaged into skin, while Studio Finish Concealer was applied sparingly, where needed. Garland applied M·A·C Pigment in Basic Red to the eye socket and blended outward to fade into a soft pink tint. Impeccable Brow Pencil in Taupe was drawn on half the eyebrow (from the highest point of the arch, then tapered out to the outer edge). Eye Kohl in Fascinating was then drawn onto the lower eyelids. Lip Pencil in Cherry was smoothed over the lip as a base coat, while Pigment in Basic Red was dusted over the top for a powdery look.

Charles Anastase


The look at Charles Anastase was described by M·A·C artist, Sally Branka as “Charlotte Rampling in the Seventies. She had a strength about her, but was also extremely elegant.” M·A·C Select Moisturecover Concealer was buffed on with a #187 stipple brush, while Mineralize Skinfinish and Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige was lightly applied all over the face. Powder Blush in Dame was then brushed on to the apples of the cheeks. Eyes were minimal, with only M·A·C Fluidline in Blacktrack (applied with a #266 brush to the top lash line). Branka then filled in the lips with Lip Pencil in Vino (concentrating on defining the “cupid’s bow”) and Lipmix in Crimson was placed over the top for added texture.
