MAC Spring/Summer make-up trends 2015

Last week I attended the MAC trends event where the new make-up trends for Spring/Summer 2015 were being showcased by the regional MAC make-up directors: Vimi Joshi & Miriam Khairallah. Based on the looks that I’ve seen on the event, I think that this year’s make-up trends will definitely be my favourite of all time! I caught myself saying this after every MAC trends event but this season is different. It’s all about having the perfect skin in the most natural way and also, we finally get to kiss goodbye the overly used contouring!
