Trends come and go as much in the beauty world as they do in fashion. With each changing season it exciting to see what the forecast is for what’s going to be hot and what’s definitely not. The pros from MAC Cosmetics, trusted experts in their field, have identified what’s going to be huge this summer and we are HERE FOR IT. Here is the official MAC summer trend forecast – prepare to be amazed!

1. REAL

Nonchalant and effortless are the words that epitomise this look. While in the past make-up has been applied so that it looks perfect, this summer it’s all about lived-in liner, slightly-smudged lips and keeping things fresh. Striving for perfection? SO last season.

Essentials Matte lipstick, kohl eyeliner and a brow kit.

2. WET

Sweat is finally in! Not really, but looking really dewy certainly is. This is perfect for summer because it mimics the light on the skin and makes you appear even more radiant. Gloss can also be worn in different ways too, from chic and groomed to more messy and urban.

Essentials Facial oils, eye and lip gloss and highlighter.

3. FREE

Festival season is here and that’s exactly the inspiration behind this seasonal make-up trend. Fun geometric shapes, bold lines and colours and a general disregard for the rules are the name of the game. Throw some shimmer in the mix and you are good to go (party).

Essentials  Bright-coloured eyeshadows, liners and mascaras.

4. WARM

As the weather gets warmer, so should our make-up. At least that’s what MAC thinks, and we couldn’t agree more. This means using tones such as warm browns, pinks, peaches and terracottas to create a look that is sun-kissed, organic and feminine. In other words – gorgeous!

Essentials warmed-toned eyeshadow and lip colours and a good bronzer.
