The clothing and makeup were right in check with each other at the Charles Anastase show this morning. Both were conservative with just a bit of an edge to make things modern. Some of the clothes were adorned with metallic pailletes and the makeup focus was a striking dark gold shadow on the eye. The inspiration for the makeup look created by Sally Branka for MAC was "innocence with a dark side." Skin was very neutral and pale skin with MAC Pro Sculpting Creams in earthy strong brown shades on the face and in and around the eye socket to create a mood rather than a tone. On the lips, was a new burnt orange shade which is due out next year as part of a lip palette called Front Row to give the models a wash of colour.
