MAC Autumn/Winter 2012 Trend : Hone-Structure


Tom Pecheux for Altuzarra

In its purest form, this look is about a nude sculptural face as a canvas for a brow (straighter, stronger and more purposefully groomed, from which the other features seem to hang). A brow is the axis of what makes these honed, nude looks contemporary.

The trend is about the proper placement of a highlight and a contour. “We’ve turned the light around this season – it’s now less about highlights and more about the depth of a contour,” explains Andrew Gallimore : “It creates a shaded face that is slightly hollow and haunted but extremely beautiful and not alien”.
