MAC and Sass & Bide Spring/Summer 2012

Just as New York Fashion Week was coming to an end, London Fashion Week was just beginning to ramp up. Over the weekend, there were several amazing shows where UK designers pulled out all of the stops with their Spring/Summer 2012 collections. Sass & Bide had one of the most highly anticipated shows as their brand has gained serious momentum both in the UK and across the pond. Beautywise, MAC and the Sass & Bide design team opted to go with a bold, somewhat futuristic look that accentuated the eyes and cheeks.  The word for this look is strong, almost warrior-like which is on trend with the NYFW shows as many of the looks highlighted one feature while leaving the rest of the face bare. This look starts with MAC’s Studio Moisture Cream to prep and prime skin. Next MAC’s Face & Body foundation is applied all over for a flawless canvas. Pink Rebel Lustre Drops are applied to the cheekbones for a highlight. Rusty Metal X Cream Shadow is blended above the cheekbone for a dramatic effect. Shell and Hush Cream Colour Base is blended in for some additional shine. Brows are highlighted with Blonde and Dirty Blonde Impeccable Brow Pencil while Cork Eye Shadow is blended in to help darken and deepen brows. Venetian Tarnish and Fusion Gold Metal X Cream Shadow are blended together and applied over the entire lid. Lips are left nude with a slight hint of balm.
