There’s something about seasonal makeup that I love, and in particular summer makeup (although given we are in Ireland I use the term summer lightly..!). I guess it’s sort of like updating your wardrobe and marks the end of one chapter of the year and the beginning of a new one. Summer makeup for me is always all about fresh dewy skin, soft pinks and peaches and clean defined brows and lashes.Read More
We're all for natural beauty with a flushed cheek, a clean brow and defined lashes, but every now and then comes along a collection which is pure glamour and makes us crave all that glitters. Albeit for a Saturday night sipping something with bubbles over a Tuesday morning conference call! M∙A∙C makeup guru and Pro Artist Lesley Keane describes the look as 'slept-in' and a little undone. As far as we're concerned low maintenance glam is the best kind of glam! Lesley suggests starting with a M∙A∙C Kohl pencil such as Prunella inside the eye, then smudged around the lash line and buffed out into a Smokey eye with the #217 brush. Then, using the same brush apply Dazzleshadow in ‘Let’s Roll’ across the lid and socket, and finish with a generous helping of the new M∙A∙C Upward Lash Mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
M∙A∙C Le Disko is one of those collections that screams everything fun. Practicality flies out the window when you've such beautiful, full-on colour shadows boasting the richest iridescent sheen, and pearlescent glittery glosses that epitomise seventies chic. Who needs eye-shadows when you can have Dazzleshadows! Pictured above, clockwise from top left: She Sparkles (Light Silvery Champagne- my favourite!) | Let's Boogie (Gunmetal Grey) | I like 2 Watch (Gold) | Try Me On (blue/green), coming in at €21 each.
The Piece de Resistance here however has to be M∙A∙C Superslick liquid eyeliner, which is available in silver (Nocturnal) and gold (Pure Show). This one item holds the potential to take basic daywear make-up into something very special in a single felt swoop. Water-based and water-resistant, it's guaranteed not to budge all night long. M∙A∙C LeDisko is available at M∙A∙C counters nationwide now!
