How-to: Balmain S/S ’12 makeup

Balmain - Spring 2012 makeup

The look:

“It is the Balmain girl, but there is an evolution compared to last season. She has more colour on the cheeks and some ‘left over’ makeup on the eyes. Brows are also stronger and well-groomed.”—Tom Pecheux for M.A.C.

The how-to:

FACE

  • M.A.C Face & Body Foundation — applied to even out the skin tone and perfect the skin
  • M.A.C Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder — blended through the centre of the face for a polished effect
  • M.A.C Pro Powder Blush Pro Palette in Taupe— blended under cheekbones to contour

EYES

  • M.A.C  Zoom Lash Mascara in Lofty Brown — applied at the root of both upper and lower lashes to define
  • M.A.C Eye Kohl in Smolder — applied through the root of upper lashes, then blended with fingers
  • M.A.C Eye Pencil in Coffee— applied through the waterline of lower lashes and then smudged to create an “after party” effect
  • Brows are lightly shaded to perfect

LIPS

  • M.A.C Lip Conditioner SPF 15 — hydrates and perfects lips with a natural finish
