MAC Trend Report

Fall 2015
“Wearing new makeup trends is like wearing new shoes. At first, they’re not comfortable, you have to break them in.”
Can I just share how ecstatic I was to attend this event for the first time? MAC Cosmetics always holds Trend Report ‘workshops’ every season where they fly in one of their Global Senior Artists to share their foreseen trends. For Fall 2015, it was Northwest Senior Artist John Stapleton who has been with the brand for 19 years now —  started at the counter, moved to the management side after years of hard work and is now celebrating his 8th year as one of their Senior Artists. Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Jamie Lee Curtis, Pamela Anderson, Sienna Miller are just a few of the celebrities his magical hands have worked on consistently. He was extremely candid all throughout the workshop — injecting life anecdotes and funny jokes that sitting through an hour and a half of it felt like 10 minutes.
Black Lips, Bold Liner
How in the hell do I wear this without looking like I ate squid ink pasta?” was one of the questions John received during the Q&A portion of the workshop. “Well, first of all, if you think a red lip is high maintenance, you haven’t tried the black lip yet… it really isn’t easy.” John recommends priming the lips with the Prep + Prime Lip pen that keeps any lipstick where they should be. It lessens the feathering and the bleeding, especially if you’re wearing a dark lip. I’ve actually been using it ever since this workshop especially when I wear dark, vampy colors – and I attest to its powers! This is one of those slightly ‘rebellious’ (in terms of Manila!) trends I wouldn’t be so sure about but hey, who knows, maybe you’ll be seeing me with black lips sometime soon on here.
Fresh Skin
Strengthening the face can be through a pink blush, bronzer or mascara as much as razor sharp contour.” We will always always have no-makeup makeup. MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection, a dewy tea-stained cream shadow, MAC Studio Sculpt Defining Powder, a soft-focus ultra lightweight gel-powder, MAC Clear Brow Set are the three key products to achieve and strengthen your no-makeup makeup game. The finish of this no-makeup story is satin-y, not too dewy nor too matte. To tie it all together, John advises, “Add hardness by using an eye shadow three shades darker than the skin tone under the brow bone.”
Last Night’s Makeup
The previous night was too fun. You’ve had a few too many drinks than you’ve cared to count. You went home and just plopped right into bed without changing clothes or bothering washing your face. When you wake up the next morning, mascara is smeared, eyeliner has rubbed off.. “That is pretty much this trend“, John half-jokingly says. “It’s partied-in, lived-in, worn-in makeup from a night or day out.” Of course, fresh clean skin is key to this look so you could wear it out and not look exactly like you’ve downed a bottle of tequila and passed out. It focuses on not too perfectly blended eye makeup, not prepped-lined-and-blotted lips.. I actually like this trend because it’s just how I wear makeup most of the time! Not too perfect, a bit gritty but still feigning ‘pretty’.
From Hollywood to Woodstock
Woodstock, aka our Titos and Titas’ Coachella, serves as the inspiration for this trend. The red lip moves from being Red Carpet red to 70s caramel, tobacco, aubergine kind of red. This trend calls back in the ever-popular-but-forgotten Chili lipstick – a timeless, sophisticated terracotta. Eyes are suggested to be paired with Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Uninterrupted, a bohemian mustard brown. John shares that for this trend, you need not buy a new red. “You can just wear any red lipstick and just pat your finger onto your lips a few times to tone it down.”

To be honest, I’m not such a “trend” person. It took me a while to get into contouring – that I’m not even at strobing yet. I usually stick to whatever works for me. I discover my skintone is good friends with plum lips – I wear it for a month or two. I get into eyeshadow – I buy similar shades of nude and brown until I realize “Good Lord, I don’t have much variety here”. So I guess learning about new techniques sort of keeps me in check – that there are other things I could do with what I already have. That I don’t necessarily have to keep on buying new things to keep up with the “trends”. And the most important thing — trends always repeat themselves. What’s in now could be out tomorrow – so wear whatever you feel like! Who cares about the Makeup Police, right? I certainly don’t. I’m still on a contouring high up to now.

    The Beautiful and Damned trend is definitely the one I’m most attracted to. I have worn black lips in public. I found that placing a deep berry or red lipstick underneath gives it a more wearable vibe. It would look more of a very deep, vampy red. Love Worn looks gorgeous. If every my liner/mascara smudges, it’s all just part of a trend. 😉

      Awesome tip, Raven

    And here I thought MAC Diva was already a bit much. I hope this trend makes it big locally, so that people get used to dark lips without associating it with goths.

    I wish they opened stuff like this to the public (aka us mere mortals), so I’m thankful for the blogging coverage! I’d love to try the pusit look — if only I didn’t keep eating all day! My lips would look so weird, faded/naked in the middle, black on the sides. Or maybe that can be a new trend on its own….. :))

    Not very much into trends, too. But I have Chili. I should bust that out and wear it more.

    I’ve never been into trends, be it makeup or fashion. I believe in wearing what suits my features and I look awful in a lot of trendy stuff. AND I don’t have the guts to wear black lipstick in public. Not here when most people are quite conservative!

    I’m not one for trends either. I just go with what I feel like for the day, mostly neutral eyes and whatever lipstick I’m into at the moment. Haha
