MAC Spring/Summer 2014 Trends : Day-Glow & CC-Thru Color


This season’s looks focus on health, freshness and femininity. “It’s about tweaking and revealing beauty, not reinventing it”, says Lyne Desnoyers. Makeup is kept very natural to complement Spring/Summer fashion which sees a lot of prints, from flower prints to portrait prints. Makeup is kept simple and using high-tech products to create low-tech beauty.

As usual, there are 4 trends for Spring/Summer 2014. 2 of them are featured here.



It’s about a summery, gorgeous and glowing complexion with references to the elements of sand, sea, sun, wind, air, water. The natural vitality behind SS14 is less obvious than a proletarian bronze look and more about peach and pink cream blushes. Highlights and emollient textures are used to emulate the way that light falls on a fresh, young skin. Cream products create a natural look, a raw skin effect. Products are placed strategically on the face.

CC-Thru Colour


As the name suggests, this trend has something to do with a new collection of CC products coming up in March (can’t say more than that for now). We will be seeing shades of lavender which give a soft focus effect to lips and eyes. It’s like a bridal look with shades that brighten up face yet keeping make-up soft. There are lilacs and peaches that aren’t necessarily pastels.
