MAC Cosmetics autumn/winter 2010 make-up trend: Voile Veil

Terry Barber's (director of Makeup Artistry for MAC Cosmetics) 3rd look he predicts we'll be wearing for autumn/winter 2010 is Voile Veil (His 1st look was red lipstick blogged 1Jun and 2nd look satin eyes blogged 3Jun)


The most modern of the trends, here the face is in soft focus with no hard lines. The colours used are of the cooler end of the spectrum – silver/pewter/taupe/mauve. Khaki is used instead of black for a softer smokey eye. One look is gothic with the aggressive black taken away to create a more fragile romantic coquettish feel. Another is the worn in polished and manicured look in classic neutrals. And another is a soft tragic heroine look – it’s all about creating moods. On the catwalk Chloe chose the luxuriously sophisticated French actress look whilst Felder Felder chose a light and soft inspired gothic theme.

Lips are either nude shades with a hint of a grey undertone such as MAC’s Fresh Brew, Honey Love and Honey Flower or just slightly stained in keeping with the soft veiled focus.

Barber’s tip: On the catwalk the models wore smokey blue grey eyes. Real women should keep to minky grey browns to stop the eyes looking bruised.

With this trend you use the make up to express a mood rather than concentrating on particular features.
