The good people over at M·A·C were kind enough to share their facecharts from the Fall 2010 shows during Milan Fashion Week. Today’s facecharts include: Giles, Gareth Pugh, Balmain, and Manish Arora, whose shows took place on Wednesday, March 3rd and Thursday, March 4th.

Giles

Giles

M·A·C artist, Miranda Joyce created a lovely, creamy, and sexy look for the models at Giles. Said the artist, ” She’s a Hitchcock heroine with certain edge”. M·A·C Cream Colour Base in Pearl (mixed with Strobe Cream) was used to highlight the planes of the face. Sculpting Powder in Bone Beige or Blush in Cheek or Pinch O’Peach was applied according to models’ skin tone to slightly flush and sculpt the cheeks. Joyce then applied Cream Colour Base in Mid Tone Sepia (blended into the crease of the eyelids). Cream Colour Base in Pearl and Strobe Cream were once again blended together to highlight the inner corners of the eyes and lids. Mascara X in Brown was applied for naturally defined lashes, while Impeccable Brow Pencil lightly filled in the brows. Lipstick in Honey Love was applied to the corners of the lips for shape. Cream Colour Base was touched onto the center of the lips with a coat of Lipglass in Clear blended over the entire lip.

M·A·C artist, Alex Box created a “perfectly deadly Android beauty”, for the look at Gareth Pugh. M·A·C Studio Sculpt Foundation was applied as a base. Iridescent Powder in Silver Dusk was applied on cheekbones and bridge of nose, while Studio Sculpt Foundation was layered over the top to soften the sparkle. Micronized Airbrush Formula in Black Black was airbrushed on to forehead for a somber effect. #42 and #44 lashes were glued together at the inner corners, flipped upside down, and applied slightly above the lash line. Creme Liner in Pro Black was used to fill the gap along the inner half of eye only between lash line and false lash. Brow Set in Clear was applied in an upwards motion on brows. Box kept lips minimal using only Studio Sculpt Foundation over Lip Conditioner to mute out natural lip color.

Balmain

Balmain

M·A·C artist, Tom Pecheux‘s inpiration for Balmain‘s Fall 2010 show was the models themselves. Said Pecheux,” I want to make them even more perfect by giving power to each of the facial elements. It’s the perfect skin, brow, eye, and lip.” Pecheux applied M·A·C Face and Body Foundation with Select Sheer Loose Powder on top to set. Eye Shadow in Rice Paper was used to highlight the tops of the cheekbones and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Deep contoured the cheekbones. Eye Shadow in Rice Paper and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Dark was blended on to eyelids. Eye Pencil in Coffee was then smudged along the lash lines with a #266 brush. Pro Lash Mascara in Charcoal Brown was applied to curled lashes, while Brow Set in Clear was applied to groom the brows. Pecheux kept lips bare by only adding a touch of Lip Conditioner to the mouth.

Manish Arora

Manish Arora

“I wanted the makeup to look like colored lights on the face.” said M·A·C artist, Kabuki, of the look at Manish Arora. “Very youthful and psychedelic, I imagined Louise Brooks going down a rabbit hole and finding herself at a techno rave. It’s a celebration of color.” Kabuki applied M·A·C Select Cover-Up Concealer all over the face including under and over the eye brows to blank them out. Paintstick in Primary Yellow was used on the inner and outer corners of eyes (with edges blurred). Cream Colour Base in Orange Alarm was placed in the center of the eyelid (from lash to slightly above the crease and blended up). Pro Invisible Set Powder was dusted on top to set color. Chromaline in Cyan was used to draw a very thin arched brow and lashes were left bare. Kabuki applied Lipglass in Pink Poodle (precisely applied) then followed up with a coat of Lipglass in Clear for added shine.
