Retro Glow

Gently smudged lips are paired with a barely there complexion and a dash of shimmer in the corners of the eyes for a brighter gaze. MAC Senior Artist Rachel O’Donnell reveals how to create this beauty look from our cover shoot.

To use Extra Dimension Skinfinish as an eyeliner I wet my brush #210 with Fix+, dip it into the product and gently apply it to the inner eyes in thin layers.

Waterweight Foundation is beautiful - like a veil of coverage to the skin so the finished result still looks real. I love using it with a #132 brush for quick application.

Here I've used Brushstroke Eyeliner in brown in a very thin line just along the lash-line to give subtle definition to the eyes. This is such an easy product to use if you are a liner novice!

Russian Red is a beautiful matte lipstick. I've paired it here with Cherry Lip Liner just to clash the colour a little and make it pop.
