Inspired by the Luminescent theme of the 2015 David Jones Flower Show, M.A.C. Cosmetics has created a look that rebels against the classic spring aesthetic. "A deep purple lip brings a bit of mood and contrasts perfectly against luminous, glowing skin," says M.A.C.'s Senior Artist Nicole Thompson.
It's a perfect beauty look for this season's Dark Floral trend and for the girl who likes her pretty with a bit of edge.
Here's a step by step guide on how to get the look:
Begin by washing your face with Green Gel Cleanser to condition, nourish and hydrate the skin before applying your makeup. Next, use a #188 Small Duo Fibre Brush to massage Strobe Cream in the skin, giving your face a radiant glow. Using your fingertips, dab Prep + Prime Skin Refined Zone through the T-zone to assist in minimizing pores and controlling oil throughout the day.
Using a #168 Large Angled Contour Brush, buff a small amount of Studio Face and Body Foundation into the skin. Next, use Mineralize Concealer and a #195 Concealer Brush to conceal under the eyes and any obvious blemishes. Control any shine through the T-zone with Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder, and then use Cream Colour Base in Luna to highlight the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and cupid’s bow for luminous, glowing skin.
Using a #224 Tapered Blending Brush, blend a soft brown Eyeshadow onto the lid and through the crease of the eye. Line the eyes using Kohl Pencil in Feline, and finish with lashings of Studio Sculpt Mascara. For super natural brows, brush brows in an upwards direction using Clear Brow Set.
Begin by applying Prep + Prime Lip to hydrate the lips and prevent your lipstick from feathering. Line the lips with Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Bespoken For, remembering to use the lip pencil to colour the lip in. Finish by applying Matte Lipstick in Rebel to the centre of the lips for a deep purple pout.
