My fave beauty look from MBFWA Day Three: Lisa Ho by M.A.C

A clear crisp morning signalled a fresh start for Lisa Ho's Spring/Summer '12-'13 collection preview, which was presented in the glorious surrounds of the Art Gallery of NSW.
After a rather large – and much needed after my early makeup call – coffee I was taken backstage to meet highly respected M.A.C Australia Senior Artist Linda Jefferyes, whose impeccable work I have long admired from afar.
Linda began by telling me that the makeup had a "theatrical, almost Ballet Russes" quality to it, and accordingly created a dark blue smoky eye that was teamed with a light nude lip. “The clothes were so patterned and textured that to put another bright colour in would have just been crazy,” she explains, “so I used a deep, solid, strong and very matte blue instead.
To add "depth of colour" to the eye, she began by rimming the upper and lower lashes with Indigo eye pencil, smudging that in and then applying Naval Eyeshadow over the top. Jefferyes advises to always use pencil first, smudged before applying the shadow to create a base for diffusing intense colour upwards. Opulash mascara was used to define the lashes, and the brows left totally natural.
M.A.C.’s nude lipsticks Blankety and Myth were combined to top off the look and kept the youthful vibes coming from some of the freshest models I’d seen all week. Just beautiful, and a totally killer collection to boot.
