Been in a makeup rut lately? Dying to get your newly-cleaned brushes out and play with your vast makeup collection but don’t know which makeup looks to create? Here, we give you 4 sizzlin’ hot looks courtesy of MAC Spring/Summer ’10 trend. This isn’t your typical Spring or Summer look as it’s slightly more daring and bold.

Sonia Rykiel

MAC tips:

  • Use Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Orpheus, drawn along top lash line and blended out with 239 brush
  • One coat of black mascara swept onto curled lashes
  • Use tinted moisturizer to even out skin tone and set with powder only on the centre of the face to minimize shine
  • Use cream blush buffed high on the cheeks in a round C shape. It really lifts the look.
  • Apply bright orange or coral lipstick and clear lipglass brushed over lips with 231 brush for a “patent lip”


MAC tips

  • Kohl Power Eye Pencil  in Feline dotted across, then smudged across lash line and onto lid with fingertips
  • Black mascara brushed through eyelashes and smudged through upper and lower lash lines and onto lids for a messy look then reapplied and coated through eyelashes to finish
  • Use Studio Sculpt Foundation and Studio Fix Moisturizer layered on top of foundation to sheer-out skin.
  • Dust powder in Medium, Dark or Deep Dark onto apples of cheeks and all over face to set and slightly color
  • Rub nude lip liner onto lips with fingertips and dust neutral eyeshadow on top to create a matte finish
