  • If you’ve followed me long enough you know I have a ridiculous love for playing makeup with professional makeup artists. I love the idea of trying new looks, getting transformed and learning new techniques that I can use on my day-to-day life. I’ve worked a lot with my girl Sinitta on previous posts (LINK1, LINK2, LINK3) and had the most amazing time. So this time I partnered up with MAC Cosmetics and Marco, the Senior Artist for Sub Saharan Africa, to look through 2017 makeup trends to find our current obsessions and to find a way to incorporate them into the real world. Basically, wearable runway makeup.
  • As we went through each look we notices a trend that we absolutely loved…. Clean, fresh faces with a pop of gloss. Some times the look evoked some sort of grunge like mystic while others where simple and sweet. In other words “no makeup-makeup” with a twist. It’s about keeping the skin looking flawless with a natural misty glow while adding a little pizazz on the lips, eyes or both.
  • With that said, here are some looks that we came-up with… from simple and sweet to dark and grungy.

BTW.... All MAC product prices have been standardized. Which means all products now cost as much as they do the rest of the world… WE NO LONGER HAVE TO TRAVEL OUT OF THE COUNTRY TO GET DECENT PRICES OF MAC….YAAAAS.
