The good people over at M·A·C were kind enough to share their facecharts from the Fall 2010 shows during Paris Fashion Week. Today’s facecharts include: Haider Ackermann, Anne Demeulemeester, Karl Lagerfeld, Costume National, and Sonia Rykiel, whose shows took place on Saturday, March 6th and Sunday, March 7th.
M·A·C artist, Stephane Marais created a ghostly, ethereal vibe for the models at Haider Ackermann. Said the artist,” The girls are like apparitions: beautifully pale and magical goddesses. I want a look that’s very softly sculpted and luminous.” M·A·C Studio Sculpt Foundation was applied to the face, while Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder lightly set the base (for a natural, yet not matte skin texture). Cream Colour Base in Tint was applied to hollow out the cheeks. Powder Blush in Breath of Plum was dusted on top of cheekbones but only slightly for the most subtle hint of color. Cream Colour Base in Tint was applied as a base for the eyelids. Marais then added Eye Pencil in Taupe to deepen the socket and the lower lash line. Eyeliner Mixing Medium and Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk was touched on to highlight all around the lash lines. The artist skipped mascara, only curling the lashes. Lipstick in Jubilee was then painted all over the mouth.
M·A·C artist, Rudi Cremers wanted a “porcelain look” for the models at Anne Demeulemeester. Said the artist, ” I wanted the look with shine elements to pick up on the glossy leather in the collection. It’s not a radically new feeling for Demeulemeester, but this season we’ve focused on the brow and brought them sweeping to the outside, rather than brushed up.” M·A·C Face and Body Foundation in White was applied to the center panel of the face only and subtly blended. Cream Colour Base in Tint gently contoured the cheeks and temples of the girls that needed it. Cremers then applied Eye Pencil in Ebony on the upper lash line. Lipglass in Fancy Cat was then pressed onto the eyelid. Eye Shadow in Ground Brown and Liquid Liner in Blacktrack was mixed and drawn through the brows horizontally and disconnected. Eye Shadow in Shroom was placed on the inner corner of the eye (as a highlight), while Eye Shadow in Furiously Fabulous (available Fall 2010) was pushed into the inner sockets of the eye with a #219 brush. Lipstick in To Pamper was blended onto the lips, with Eye Shadow in Shroom applied to the cupid’s bow (as a highlight).
“The inspiration was the texture of the latex and the violet red in the collection to create a girl who’s strong and powerful and luxurious.” Said M·A·C artist, Emmanuel Sammartino of the look at Karl Lagerfeld. M·A·C Face and Body Foundation was washed over the skin for a sheer base. Studio Sculpt Concealer was applied only where needed. Cream Colour Base in Vintage Rose was then applied with the fingers to flush the cheeks, while Invisible Set Powder mattified the T zone. Sammartino applied Eye Shadow in Hand Written (blended up from the lash line to wash over the lids). Eye Shadow in Notoriety was applied from the lid to the crease of the eye (to form a “halo” of color that also worked subtly into the lower lashes). Brow Set in Clear was then brushed through the brows. Lipstick in Lady Danger was brushed onto the lips with a healthy dose of Lipglass in Clear for a very strong shine.
M·A·C artist, Lyne Desnoyers put together a contrasting vibe for the models at Costume National. Said the artist,” The collection is nature meets technology, with a contrast of textures which I wanted to bring into the face by juxtaposing matte and gloss highlights.” Both M·A·C Face and Body Mixing Medium and Face and Body Foundation were applied for sheer coverage. Select Cover-Up was touched on where needed, while Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder was dusted onto T zone only. Cream Colour Base in Nude and White were mixed together to create a highlight on the cheekbones. After lashes were curled, Desnoyers applied Brow Set in Clear to eyebrows. Eye Shadows in Gesso and Yogurt were blended to create a matte white wash over the lid. Cream Colour Base in Luna was applied (as an eyeliner, on the inner eye to “give light”). Desnoyers then applied Lipglass in Clear with Cream Colour Base touched onto the cupid’s bow of the lip (as a highlight).
“Sensual, chic, dramatic, mysterious. It’s based on a bit of a shadowed 1920′s photograph. A sensual, yet soft makeup.” was the look created by M·A·C artist, Charlotte Tilbury, of the look at Sonia Rykiel. M·A·C Moistureblush Cream and Careblends Essential Oils were massaged into skin, while Studio Sculpt Foundation was applied as a base. Powder Blush in Taupe contoured the cheek. Tilbury applied Sculpting Powders in Sculpt, Shadowy, and Powder Blush in Taupe were applied with #224 brush, to give the eye a “blown out, square/oval twenties shape . Zoomlash mascara in Lofty Brown was then applied to lashes. Pro Longwear Lipcolour in Made To Last was applied, focusing on the center of the mouth; sheered out with a finger toward the edges.
