M·A·C Makeup Looks at NYFW: Peter Som, Prabal Gurung, Doo.Ri, Alexander Wang, and Altuzarra

The good people over at M·A·C were kind enough to share their facecharts from the Fall 2010 shows during New York Fashion Week. Today’s facecharts include: Peter Som, Prabal Gurung, Doo.Ri, Alexander Wang, and Altuzarra, whose shows took place on Saturday, February 13th.

Peter Som


World renowned  M·A·C makeup artist, Tom Pecheux channeled his inner hippie for the look at Peter Som. Said the artist,” The look was uptown girl meets Woodstock.  A shimmery, golden eye to contradict the deep, dark purple lip.” Skin was mostly matte; a blend of  Studio Sculpt Foundation, Set Powder, and Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk (brushed onto cheekbones) were buffed into the skin, leaving a powdered down but natural finish. After prepping the eyelid with M·A·C Studio Sculpt Concealer and Set Powder in Invisible, the artist applied Pigment in With Legal (from lash to brow and in the inner eye corner). Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk was lightly brushed on to the inner eye corner and under brow bones. Eyes were then finished off with a coat of  Studio Fix Lash mascara (to both top and bottom lashes). Lips were lined with Currant lip pencil, followed by a healthy dose of Kittenish lipstick (applied with #242 Brush). Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo in My Dark Magic was lightly pressed onto the mouth for a bit of unexpected texture.

Prabal Gurung


M·A·C artist, Stevie Huynh described the look at Prabal Gurung as having “an android feel. Surreal skin with a matte, minimalist red lip.” Face and Body Foundation was set with Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder for matte skin. To contour and highlight, Huynh applied a blend of M·A·C Pro Sculpting Powder in Sculpt, Pigment in Vanilla and White (Pro only), and Strobe Liquid (dabbed onto cheekbones and above the eye). After lining AND filling in the mouth with lip pencil in Cherry, the artist layered on Pigment in Red, for a super matte finish.



“This season we wanted to push it up-creating dramatic color with a glam rock inspired lip,” said Tom Pecheux of the look at Doo.Ri. Face and Body Foundation was applied to the face and neck (using the fingers for light coverage). M·A·C Pro Sculpting Powder in Shadowy was used (paired with #116 Brush) to contour the cheeks. A dusting of Pro Set Powder in Invisible finished the face. Eyes were bare, using only a blend of Face and Body Foundation, M·A·C Pro Set Powder in Invisible and Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk. For the “glam rock lip”, Pecheux applied lip pencil in Cherry paired with matte lipstick in Ruby Woo. A touch of Pro Glitter in Turquoise and 3D Silver added texture and a pop of excitement to the mouth.

Alexander Wang


M·A·C artist, Diane Kendal described the look at Alexander Wang as,” Early 90′s Kate Moss; all about fresh skin and a reddish brown, gorgeous eye.” M·A·C Select Moisturecover Concealer was applied only where needed, leaving the faces FRESH. Pro Cream Colour Base in Mid-Tone Sepia and Paint Stick in Deep Brown were blended together and applied to the eyelid as well as under the eye. Studio Finish Skin Corrector in Terracotta was dabbed into the crease of the eyelid and under the lower lash line. Gloss Texture was then added over the top of the Cream Colour Base and Chromaline in Black lined the upper lash line and outer corner of the eye. Lips were kept bare.



Tom Pecheux combined “twisted, sophisticated, and gentle hard-core” for the look at Altuzarra. To prep the skin, Pecheux massaged M·A·C Careblends Essential Oils into models’ skin for a dewy finish. Studio Sculpt Foundation was applied for full coverage and Blot Powder Loose was dusted on to keep the look smooth. Eye Kohl Pencil in Smolder was smudged into the eye lid and penciled into the upper lash line. Lip Glass in Fancy Cat (available in Fall ’10) was layered onto the eye lid (up to the brow bone) for a glossy effect and lipstick in Kittenish (also available in Fall ’10) was smudged under the eye as liner . M·A·C Pro Studio Fix Mascara in Black Fix was then applied to curled lashes. Lips were minimal with only a touch of Lip Conditioner SPF 15 blended with foundation for a completely nude look.
