M.A.C for Lisa Ho – MBFWA 2012

Lisa Ho 1

“The Lisa Ho inspiration is all about theatre – it was very inspired by the Ballet Russes. So we’ve gone for this solid, smokey, dark teal blue eye. Lisa’s used a lot of patterns and prints, so I’ve kind of grounded the make-up by using this dark blue eye. Kenneth is putting a lot of colour in the hair, so I didn’t want to add another colour in and instead opted for strength. I’m sick of black which is why I went for this dark blue. On the eye, we used a pencil called Indigo, which I worked around the rim of the upper and lower part of the eye, and I smudged that out and then put the shadow on. By using a pencil first, it gives you a really good base and that gives you a great depth of colour. Then I’ve put the powder over the top. Otherwise, sometimes when you just use powders it can get a little patchy. We contoured cheeks with a colour called Sculpt – it’s a really neutral colour and it’s really great to contour the face with,” – Linda Jefferyes for M.A.C.
