MAC/ Spring/ Summer Trend: Dye-A-TribeMonday, April 19, 2010
A shaft of sunlight through stained glass…
The syrupy freshness of peach juice…the swirled, translucent tints in a murano vase…tinted filters over a camera lense: for colour this summer, think multi-dimensional, soft-focus and super-blended in a succulent palette. It’s about optimistic, upbeat shades applied with the very lightest touch “in the ongoing trend for colour that looks airbrushed with the softest edges,” says Terry Barber. Not that its attitude is hippie-dippy or costume drama. “It’s more about taking pretty colours, yet giving them a rebellious edge so that they don’t come across as too bridal.” Whether that be the subtlety of a dégradé chromatic shift over the lip or eye or the juxtaposition of upbeat colours against a raw skin or bare lash, as Gordon Espinet explains, “It’s really about wearing colour with a cool factor.”
This is one of this year's MAC trends. I love color and I am always experimenting with new combinations.
It's so much fun!
Like a lovely blogger said (Zoffen), You can get away with color if it is well blended and also I have to add, if it is the right shade. There are soo many different shades out there that if you get the one that suits your skin tone you can have a splash of color in your eyes and look amazing. It's all about trying different ones.
In this FOTD I wanted to embrace wearing color with a cool factor.. so hopefully I did! I love my purples but this time I wanted to mix it with different blues. In the pictures it came out as a vanilla shade but above the crease and as a highlight I had a very light shade of baby blue.
