I always speak about spring/summer/fall fashion trends here on GJ but never touch upon the topic of seasonal makeup trends. That might have left a wrong impression on some of you that I don’t like makeup. If so, let me correct you, I love makeup – makeup that doesn’t look made up. But I find the runway makeup that’s supposed to be “trendy” a bit too loud.
But thankfully, the makeup trends that’s making rounds this spring/summer’15 is all about enhancing your natural beauty and not hiding it. I call it Beauty 101[like in the Hunger Games] – it’s supposed to make you look naturally flawless like you woke up looking like that.
I was recently invited to a MAC cosmetics event here in Bangalore where the renowned makeup artist Sonic Sarwate demonstrated 2 very popular makeup trends of this season – Simple eyes with bold lips[my favorite] and graphic eyes with nude lips. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that my go-to look for any special occasions[events, date nights, ect] is the black eyeliner with bold red lips look. Its so simple to achieve but makes such a statement splash.
Sonic Sarwate demonstrated the the aforementioned looks on two beautiful models with high cheek bones[I pretended to not notice how beautiful they were when really I was secretly staring]. The event was predestined to be super fun because it was being held in a MAC store among dozens of makeup, but it was made even better with all the delicious food and my fellow bloggers who kept conversations flowing.
Spring/Summer’15 makeup trends with MAC Cosmetics & Sonic Sarwate:
These are the two looks Sonic Sarwate demonstrated:
1. Black eyeliner with bold lips look. The technique is pretty self explanatory. Your eyes is all but bare with a black eyeliner and you finish the look with a bold lipstick that complements your skintone[hint: red always works, especially Ruby Woo ;)]
2. Graphic eyes with nude lips look – here, you take a colored pencil eyeliner which contrasts your eye color – Sonic has chosen green here since the model has light brown eyes. You start by lining your upper lash line, then you fill in the outer ‘V’ shape of your eyes and the inner ‘V’ shape of your eyes. You leave the centre portion of your eyes unfilled and the liner unblended, like so.
How pretty are these looks? I hope you liked this post. If you do, leave a comment below letting me know, so that I can do more of these.
