Blood was the theme at Katie Gallagher's spring presentation, but not the True Blood you're thinking of. Beautifully romantic and energetic black and red fabrics created flowing and vibrant pieces—nothing gory about it!
The bloodstained eyes and lips perfectly coordinated with the theme of the show. MAC makeup artist Javier Romero took cues from the color story and focused jolts of glossy red along the lash line and lips. "A blood stream look... sanguine sophistication," said Javier.
He hydrated skin with MAC Mineralize Charged Water Moisturizer (available Spring/Summer 2012) and applied MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation to even out the skin. He dusted MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Foundation over the T-zone. For sexy "bloodshot" eyes, he blended MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in Pro Basic Red through the lashes as eye liner. Javier mixed MAC Pro Lash, MAC Mixing Medium, and MAC Pigment in Pro Basic Red to create a red mascara. Lids and brows were given a glossy sheen with MAC Pro Gloss Texture. He applied MAC 30 Lash throughout the upper lashes as needed. To achieve the beautiful and bright cherry lip, Javier first lined lips with MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in Pro Basic Red. He blended MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour in Lasting Lust over the entire lip, and sealed the look with MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolour Clear Gloss coat.
