MAC make-up artist James O'Reilly had water colour paintings on his mind when creating this look at Louise Gray. It was such a beautiful affect and was created by marking off the face with masking tape and then stippling up to six colours on the face, around the eye, cheekbones and over the brow bones. Nothing on lips, nothing on brows, the entire focus was on the colour.
