If the most recent international fashion weeks are anything to go by, it’s that sexy, glossy textures are back. “I think we are really embracing colour this summer and gloss layered over colour makes lips look luxurious and luscious,” says Carol Mackie, MAC Senior Artist. “On the eyes, it gives an almost sporty look and adds a healthy sheen to the skin on cheekbones.” Embrace the texture by applying your gloss as a highlight on eyelids, mixing with colour to add a three-dimensional jolt of colour, and layering onto lips for a healthy-looking gleam - the possibilities are endless.
