The new Wonder Woman collection from MAC is the perfect colour story for Spring/Summer 2011… A little bit of a seventies twist, a glamazon vibe and fresh, nude-looking skin. With the power to transform Plain Janes into gorgeous goddesses, the range features several key products that will add a bit of ka-boom to your makeup bag! First up is the Mineralize Skinfinish powder (below HK310) which comes in two shades and is a combination of matte and shimmer powders in one compact that you can use to shape and sculpt. Use the matte powder just below cheekbones and the shimmer just above.
And of course Wonder Woman needs a splash of bright lip colour – MAC’s classic Russian Red (HK140) is re-released in the limited edition Wonder Woman packaging and is a must-have. I love how the feel of all the products is so chunky and retro as it makes you feel nostalgic and like a kid playing around with different colours and looks. With such strong lip colours for a summer look you don’t want it to look too perfectly applied, so start at the centre of your lip from the stick and then fade out or use your fingers to dab the colour to your lip line.
In keeping with the “play” feel of the cosmetics, the Penultimate Eye Liner (HK170) will remind you of a felt-tip pen and is perfect for drawing a fine line across your upper lid, even with a bit of a flick at the end for evening. If you’re not a whizz with liquid liner (my eyes are slightly different shapes so liquid liner can be very tricky), do lots of little dots just above and between your lashes rather than drawing a thick line and you’ll find it gives a similar effect.
