We may be heading into spring but that doesn’t have to mean bright makeup.
Mecca showed us how it’s done at Friday's Emporium Melbourne's Opening Runway. Using cool romantic hues and a deep matte plum lip, the team updated a wintry look with luminous, fresh looking skin for spring.
Here’s how to get the look.
Use an illuminator such as Chantecaille Liquid Lumiere in Brilliance and mix with a super, dewy and glowing foundation. Try Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation and mix 50/50 with the Chantecaille illuminator before buffing onto the skin with circular motions, creating an airbrushed complexion.
To cut those cheek bones out, use NARS Contour Blush in Paloma to give your skin a nice contour. Starting at the top of the ear, go down in a diagonal direction and stop at the end of the brow to ensure precision every time. Add Hourglass Luminous Light Ambient Powder to the tops of the cheek bones for that soft focus glow.
The first step to every statement lip is exfoliation. Use Mecca Cosmetica Kissable Lips to create the perfect base for every bold colour. The perfect vampy lip colour is NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. Then to ensure a crisp lip line, use NARS EyeLiner in Mambo on the outer edges to make your pout perfect.
