MAC Spring/Summer 09 Trend : Hydraluminous

The Look :

Played down makeup, a play on light, minimal without being austere. Texture that plays the lead role above color. Pearl highlights, gloss texture, blank lashes, thicker groomed eyebrow, a nothing lip. And more importantly, achieving the most cosseted and hydrated of complexions.

The Pro Tips :

“An angelic shimmer to the inner eye – pulled out in silver or pale gold is something I’m really feeling this season” said Charlotte Tilbury. Push Pigment in Platinum or Iridescent/Loose Powder in Silver Dusk over Cream Colour Base in Pearl for the most luminous effect

“Using a lighter shade of foundation down the centre of the face gives the appearance of standing in perfect lighting,” said James Kaliardos.

Instant eye update? Take Clear Gloss texture to your lids. “A wash of clear gloss over lids instantly makes the eye feel modern” said Charlotte Tilbury.

For humid skin “a mist of Fix + gives a straight from the shower feeling to the complexion,” said Georgina Graham

Cream Colour Base in Pearl is the quintessential glow giver this season. Blurring over cheekbones, smoothing over lids, accenting the Cupid’s bow…give skin a shell like finish.
