MAC Cosmetic Autumn/Winter 2010 trend- Redd Velvet

Terry Barber, director of Makeup Artistry for MAC Cosmetics gave an insight on what looks we’ll be wearing for the AW10 season. He sees makeup returning to the luxurious look of simple chic sophistication and where skin care and makeup really blend together. Here's the first trend:


Red lips are back with a passion. From a light orange red to the deep blackened red, it isn’t about the actual shade but how you wear it. Lips will be full bodied; the pigmentation strong and the lip liner will make an appearance but this time to help define a softer contour. But we are not talking about the resurrection of the 80’s look where red lipstick was part of a fully made up face. This season the rest of the face will be paired down so the lips can take centre stage and ooze seduction. The eye shadow palette will be muted shades of taupe and the eyeliner greys and browns.

There will be a choice of textures: the lacquered look (applying lip gloss on top of lipstick the traditional way) or the dense matte look – whichever suits your mood. On the catwalk Donna Karan went for a glossy Film Noir look whilst Costello Tagliapietra went for the strong matte red.

Barber’s tips:

1. Dab a bright red in the centre of a dark blackened red to stop looking too gothic.

2. For the women who are wary of bright red lipstick, go for brick red.

MAC shades include Russian Red, Cherry, Charred Red and Basic Red.

From their Dare To Wear range of high powered pigments, they have the bright red Bold & Brash lip glass. Their limited edition Dazzle range brings a deep red Baby’s On Fire and the magenta Troublemaker. And their Prolong Wear range has the blackened brick red Extended Play and the true red Prolong.

It’s a case of you can have any shade you want as long as it’s red.
