Beauty Breakdown; "Peter Som SS11"
MAC Cosmetics used to be the official sponsor of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week held in New York City for quite a few years, but with the change of the season comes a change of sponsors and the title of "Official Makeup of Fashion Week" now goes to Maybelline. But they certainly weren't born with it.
Even after changing hands, there is still a very strong presence felt by MAC and it becomes even more obvious when more creative makeup looks appear on runways like the one above. Doing a take on 60's glamour, makeup artist Tom Pecheaux used all MAC products to create a winged liner in primary yellow instead of the traditional black. Further elaborating on his inspiration for the look was the collection for Peter Som which was a;
"...very sexy, '60s-inspired collection, complete with mini lengths and shift dresses in bright hues of yellow, reddish-orange, turquoise, and khaki..."
Peter Som has been creating " bold, eclectic elegance" since 2001 from his workshop in New York City and, judging from the makeup, that style is here to stay.
Pecheaux prepped the skin with moisturizer and used Face and Body Foundation to even out the skin and dusted with Mineralized Skinfinish Natural to create a smooth satin sheen.
For eyes, he took the new MAC Acrylic Paints and mixed them with Chromaline in Super Yellow then swept the concoction over the lash line and winged out the edge, using a larger stroke to add an exclamation point to the look.
Lips were left almost bare with a bit of lip balm and a touch of So Vain Kissable Lip Colour set to release in 2011.
