So, Christmas is around the corner and you've reached that annual Christmas-gift-idea slump. Fear not, because we've got you covered. Christmas really does have a way of creeping up on us every year - but I think we can all agree that the end of this year has come faster than ever before (and we're not mad about it). Whether you're trying to find the perfect something for someone special, a last-minute Kris-Kringle present, or even just treating yourself to a well-earned gift - MECCA's holiday must-haves are definitely worth checking out.
To kick off the holiday season, MECCA is sending out weekly festive beauty trends filled with dreamy products - so we're here to give you the inside scoop. With 30 degree weekends and endless blue skies, it's safe to say this summer is going to be BRIGHT - so when we saw this rainbow-inspired eye look - we knew we had to share it.
MECCA is all about celebrating the bright side of beauty this summer, so when it comes to colour - the 'more is more' approach is the way to go. Think sherbet tones and dreamy pastels - and make up for all that lost time spent in lockdown by going big, not home.
[MECCA’s Head of Artistry, Tony Baumann] Eyes are the focus so start by prepping with Urban Decay crease-free eyeshadow primer to ensure smooth application and rich colour payoff. Mecca Max Locking Eyes palette is your go-to for this trend so press on the blue with either your finger or a brush so you have maximum coverage on the lid. Take the yellow and contour through the inner crease till it hits the bridge of the nose then blend peach and raspberry together for the socket and extend outwards for a nod to the 80s. Line with Shiseido Lilac Lotus along the lash line with a subtle wing that fades into the shadow. Feather hair-like strokes using BDB Universal Brow Pencil through brows for natural yet defined brows, brush upwards. Finish by adding a few MSL individual lashes for a thicker effect and coat with Hourglass Caution Extreme Mascara to secure the look. Kosas wet lip oil gloss in Jellyfish is the perfect partner to this sorbet eye and keeps the look balanced.
