The Scoop on This Summer’s Hottest Makeup Trends with MAC Cosmetics
Sweet, sweet summertime. The sun is shining, the days are longer and our skin is tanner than ever. With that said, your skincare and makeup routines are probably changing with the weather. Because summer is the time to show off your glowing skin, wear bright colors and be bold with your looks, we sat down with some makeup professionals to fill you in on their favorite summertime makeup tips, tricks and trends. And because MAC Cosmetics is now open at Easton, it's the perfect time to figure out which MAC products you must have in your makeup bag.
What are some of the biggest summer makeup trends this year? What makes them so great and how can people get the same look/effect?
This summer's biggest trends involve all that is bronzed and everything glowing. With the right shades of bronzer and highlighter, you can create a stunning look that literally glows. MAC's Bronzing Powder in “Refined Golden” and Extra Dimension Skin Finish in “Oh, Darling” are the perfect mix for an out-of-this-world glow. For the ultimate finishing touch, their Metallic Lipstick in "Hades Fire" and Dazzleshadow eye shadow in "I Like 2 Watch" will really make you shine.
Are there any special considerations people should take into account when purchasing and/or applying makeup in the summer?
With the change in weather comes a change in skin tone! To adjust to your tan, you'll typically have to change both your shade of foundation and your formula. MAC's Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation is perfect for the summertime because it feels lightweight and provides 24 hours of waterproof wear. Using this stuff makes sweating in the summer no problem! And with the release of even more shades in this foundation, there are options available for almost every skin tone.
If you're someone who likes a more natural look in the summertime, you've got options, too! MAC's Next To Nothing Face Colour and Next To Nothing Powder/Pressed foundation are excellent for a "barely there" makeup look.
What are some of your favorite beauty finds at MAC Cosmetics right now? If there were any products you would splurge on, what would they be?
Prep + Prime Fix+ is our finishing spray. It helps refresh makeup and take away the powdery look you may end up with after applying your finishing/setting powder. As my most-used product in-store and in my personal life, I definitely recommend it. It's a summer must-have!
MAC's Timecheck Lotion is known as an Instagram filter in a bottle. If a moisturizer and a primer had a baby, this product would be it! This lotion helps re-texturize the skin, keeps it plump and makes any foundation you put on top look like butter.
MAC's Studio Fix Powder is the #1 selling powder in cosmetics, which is a good indicator that it should be on everyone's must-have list. It's a full-coverage powder that you can apply liberally for flawless skin or use in small doses to top off any foundation. This powder can hold a matte look for eight hours and comes in an easy travel compact.
Retro Matte Liquid Lip in "Topped With Brandy" by MAC is a deep dirty rose shade that looks great on everyone. This splash of color can work for any occasion and is always in my bag!
If you're looking for a lip look that is brighter and bolder, Dazzleglass is back! As MAC is the lip place to be, we are super excited to be featuring these shimmering glittered lips. My favorite is shade is "Baby Sparks."
