“What company takes you to an island resort?” asked Gregory Arlt, Global Director for Makeup Artistry at MAC Cosmetics.
On February 6, we were whisked away from the confines of our work places and transported to the beautiful Shangri-La Mactan resort in Cebu to witness the presentation of MAC’s Spring/Summer 2017 trends.
The presentation was done in a tent a few feet from the sea, which proved to be an apt location as the upcoming trends and releases from the brand dared people to return to what feels more natural to us — less of the heavy, more of the raw (yes, "raw," we'll explain in a bit). With that said, what looks should you be sporting now that the cold is slowly starting to leave us? Here’s a guide.
Say goodbye to heavy, Instagram-inspired looks. It’s back to basics with a bold twist. For spring and summer, it’s all about getting real. Unfiltered, unpretentious, and easy are just a few words to take note of. In line with this, MAC will be releasing a new face colour called “Next to Nothing,” which aims to let you be as comfortable with as little makeup as possible.

Fans of colour will not be left behind as MAC also sees the resurgence of 80’s beauty trends. It’s time to cast away your inhibitions and start embracing colour — everywhere. Put some on your eyelids, eyelashes, cheeks and lips. MAC will be releasing mascaras and eye colours in bright hues.
