LFW LOOKS WITH M·A·C

Senior makeup artist of M·A·C Cosmetics, Lesley Keane, takes us behind the scenes of LFW; where we explore the backstage glamour of labels Preen and Roksanda, find out how we can recreate her catwalk looks, steal her beauty tricks, uncover her hero products and obsess over SS19’s upcoming beauty trends…

ON THE ATMOSPHERE BACKSTAGE

“It's always manic with a healthy dose of creative tension. It’s about trying to balance everything from styling hair, nails and makeup. You have to find your inner zen, or feed off the adrenalin.”

PREEN

CREATING THE LOOK
“Use Studio Conceal & Correct Palette to conceal the skin just where it’s needed. M·A·C Matte Lipstick in Yash is used on both the eyes and lips for a creamy ash brown finish, and Cream Colour Base in Luna is used on the cheekbones to add highlight.”

TOP TECHNIQUE
“Be light with product and blend it well so it looks more like skin tone as opposed to thick makeup, and balance your brush with the heat of your fingertips for a more seamless finish.”

ROKSANDA

CREATING THE LOOK
“For a gorgeous fresh skin makeup look, use Studio Conceal & Correct Palette, but add minimally and only where required. Brush up your brows using Shape & Shade Brow Tint in Taupe. It will add hair strokes where needed so your brows look expertly groomed and full. Apply Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Carnivorous for a soft, oxblood stain colour.”

TOP TECHNIQUE
“Always apply lipstick over well-conditioned lips. I apply M·A·C Lip Conditioner Tube after using Studio Moisturise Cream and before applying any makeup. After doing so, blot your lips on a tissue to remove excess. Then, after you apply your lipstick, run a Q-TIP along the edge to give a softer, blended lip line.”

FROM RUNWAY TO REALITY
“I love using a voluminous mascara like Flash Lash Extreme for the upper lashes.”

AMP UP FOR EVENING
“Keep the shape for evening by applying M·A·C Lip Pencil in Mahogany.”

ON THE KEY TREND OF THE SUMMER

“We’re noticing a celebration of fresh, natural skin tones and freckles, soft bronzers and minimal contouring. To complement this effortless look, you can play around with blush tones and apply it to your eyes and lips. It’s about being really healthy looking, like you’ve just been running on the beach.”
