MAC Autumn/Winter Trend Report

20 Jun

Here’s a sneak peek into trends as interpreted by MAC for the Fall fashion season:

“Something shady is going on with eyes for Fall 09. Almost ubiquitously almond-shaped and with decadence in their application, Artists are channeling a dark desire for refined, lined and the most exquisitely intense kind of smoked-out stares.”
