MAC Official Makeup Look for IFTA 2015


MAC for IFTA 2015

For the past 9 years MAC Cosmetics has been the official beauty partner to the Annual Irish Film and Television Awards as well as the sponsor of the Hair & Makeup category. To celebrate this year's awards MAC senior artist Lesley Keane has created two red carpet looks.

Look 1 is a classic smokey eye + nude glossy lip, a very sexy, classic look. Look 2, which I am wearing, is a soft warm brown smokey eye, glowing skin, soft brows and a beautiful red lip. This look is really simple to achieve and consists of not too many products.

On the skin I have Strobe Cream (one of my favourite products of all times) and the Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primer. Lesley has designed this look with the Mineralize Moisture Foundation in mind but I went for my current favourite Face & Body for a natural, sheer finish. I covered any blemishes and under eye circles with a heavily pigmented concealer to achieve an even finish.

The eyes are simple, which I love: Jest eyeshadow all over the mobile lid with Cork blended generously into the socket and the lower lashline. Lesley then used Fascinating eye kohl (an off white liner) on the waterline but I went for the colour Orpheus (sorry, limited edition) on my upper lash line instead. Lashes are generously coated with Haute & Naughty Mascara and brows are left very natural and just set with the Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set.

My favourite part are the lips: a lip pencil in the shade Whirl all over the lips and the gorgeous lipstick in Lady Bug on top. Lady Bug is a gorgeous sheer red lipstick that is going to be perfect for summer - make sure you check it out when you're in MAC next time!

The cheeks are lightly brushed with a powder blush in Margin - a slightly shimmery peach colour.

I absolutely adore this look! It's quite modern and simple enough for an evening look. Hope you like it too! x
