Dig out your satchels and pack up your pencil cases - because amidst the serene surroundings of the Plaza-based backstage area for Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, make-up artist Lucia Pieroni envisaged "young Californian intellectuals who were fresh out of college".
So new, its packaging is still in the early test stages, MAC's forthcoming Brow Powder Pencil filled in gaps for a strong, straight, bushy look.
When it comes to creating Spring Summer 2013's sun kissed glow, MAC have clearly been doing more extra homework. A new Bronze Strobe Liquid Lotion will be added to its existing light-reflecting line. Topped with the previously unseen Poised and Taupe Shape Powder Blushes in a confident swipe from one cheekbone to the other, catching the bridge of the nose en route, plus a curtain of side swept hair bobbi-pinned in place over one ear and the Californian preppster just went straight to the top of our new beauty season class.
