Seventies Beauty Rules For The Emperor 1688


“This is a story about a group of seventies-inspired beauties, think Veruschka and Jane Birkin partying all night long in Morocco.”

—Vimi Joshi, M.A.C Pro Senior Artist for the Middle East

The Golkar brothers had explained that the girl they envisaged for their Spring 2015 is beautiful yet effortless and “as the sun comes up over the desert, the girls are ready for their next escapade.” Hair flowing loose, with a soft wave it’s the smudgy, “slept-in-eyes” that provide the carefree dose of cool. On closer inspection, the kohl eyeliner was a vivid blue rather than a harsh black, the perfect accompaniment to newly acquired, sun tanned skin.


The M.A.C Pro Pencil in Marine Ultra was traced along the lower water line as Vimi ensured the girls used a steady hand and armed with q-tips cleaned up any obvious tyre track smudges. Cheekbones were chiseled using the M.A.C Bronzing Powder in Golden giving a rich earthy tan to echo the sand dunes backdrop. A dusting of the M.A.C Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder was isolated to under the eyes and the sides of the nose and as a last touch, the skin was given a little gleam with the precision painting of the M.A.C Mixing Medium Shine down the central t-zone and chin. The reflective quality of the skin gave a glossy, mannequin-like perfection under the spotlights. Although the long, tanned legs on parade may take a little more work, on the beauty front, we’re inspired.
