How to: disco diva makeup
As soon as we walked into the Lisa Ho backstage tent, we were in love. The look was very Diane von Furstenberg: imagine, a jet-set woman who's luxurious, in control of everything. Want to look like her? Of course, we hear you holler. MAC’s Make-up Director Linda Jefferyes shows us how.
What was the inspiration for this look Linda?
“The inspiration for the make-up was a glamorous, sexy woman. It was safari cross ‘70s disco, really expensive but also kind of adventurous.” Ooh we like the sound of that!
Can you talk us through what you did?
“We gave the models a beautiful golden, copper gold using lots of MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow (Duo) in Heat / Element. We defined and contoured the cheekbones with a coral gold shimmer coopery flush and kept the lips really chocolatey with a hint of gold in the middle.” Definitely glam. Definitely us.
So what will you need to recreate the look at home bh-ers?
MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer – to conceal those late nights dahling
MAC Cream Colour Base in Improper Copper – for those killer copper, gold-flecked cheeks
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder in Gold Deposit – a velvet-soft powder to highlight cheeks and finish off the lip.
MAC Pigment in Copper Cushy – this highly-pigmented midtown brown is very long-lasting.
So there we have it, play that funky music and boogie the night away!
