Nothing says summer like a pop of colour on the lips, so for our debut show we decided to step things up a notch. We enlisted MAC makeup guru Nicole Thompson, who created one of the most talked about makeup trends from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) by painting two-toned lips on models in bright pink and orange. Thompson relied on a layering technique to create the intense palette, using water-resistant products to set the colour, along with pre-mixed cream lipsticks and powder pigments.
Brows were right on trend with arches lifted to give them a feminine, almost cat-like feel. With the focus on the lips, eyes were softly shaded and cheeks were given a natural glow. Thompson created sun-kissed skin using a double coat of St Tropez Mousse (which we also included in the goodie bag) that was then topped off with the brand’s Bronzing Rocks shimmer powder.
We’d like to thank MAC and the amazingly talented Nicole Thompson and her team for helping bring our vision to life. We can’t wait to see two-toned lips on the street this summer.
