NYFW S/S 2011: MAC for Ports 1961

Ports 1961, Val Garland, MAC, Ready to Wear, Spring/Summer, 2011, NYFWVal Garland was the key artist for MAC at the Ports 1961 show. She said her makeup look was that of “a nomadic gypsy jetsetter on holiday.”  (The clothing collection was inspired by southern Tunisia and the Sahara desert.)  Basically, she gave the models a gorgeous, glamorous, shimmery, softly smoky eye in bronze, copper, and grey. Cheeks were sculpted and contoured with Blushcreme, and she finished the look with a glossy beige lip. Here’s how to recreate the look yourself:

  • Blend Coffee eye pencil into the lash line with a 212 brush
  • Buff Dalliance Mega Metal eyeshadow onto inner lid (upcoming product)
  • Blend Woodwinked eyeshadow on the outer lid with 217 brush
  • Apply Teddy eye kohl to the top lid and in crease (blend with a 212)
  • Layer Paparazz-she Mega Metal eyeshadow (upcoming product) over Teddy in the crease with 222 brush
  • Apply Dalliance Mega Metal eyeshadow (upcoming product) as brow highlight using the 224 brush
  • Ports 1961, Val Garland, MAC, makeup, NYFW, ready to wear, spring/summer, 2011Apply Powersurge eye kohl to the inner half of the lower lashline; Teddy to the outer half. Blend Center Stage Mega Metal eyeshadow (upcoming product) over both pencils using the 239 brush
  • Apply Studio Fix lash in black to upper and lower lashes
  • Apply MAC Face & Body foundation, using a 188 brush
  • Apply Studio Finish concealer as needed
  • Contour cheeks using Derailed cream shadow and Shell Cream Colour Base
  • So Sweet, So Easy Cremeblend blush on apples of cheeks
  • Oak lip pencil and Flesh lipglass on the lips

Ports 1961, Orlando Pita, T3, NYFW, spring/summer, 2011, ready to wearOrlando Pita with T3 did the hair, and he said “desert glamour” was his inspiration. He wanted the hair to have a drier look, with more texture (not quite so sleek and glossy). He basically rolled the hair to create volume, and used Elevate spray (with a curling iron) to give it texture. Control hairspray finished the look.

    All these upcoming products are killing me, I’m dying to find out out about them!

  • Goya says:

    It doesn’t matter how big is the color selection in MAC, with such an iffy quality of products it is good only for catwalks, not real life.

  • Lady Bouvier says:

    The truth is that the show was beautiful, wearable, and modern, but gets docked points for a lack of innovation. A collection that references the 1970s but doesn’t look “retro” will sell well, and the two show-ending gowns are bound to end up on the red carpet.

    Is the Flesh lipglass an upcoming product?
