This season's biggest face trend

Spring/ Summer 15 make-up will be all about "texturising the raw face" says MAC's director of make-up artistry Terry Barber.

The make-up maestro is the man behind some of the biggest catwalk cosmetics trends from last September's shows, which are now finally making their way off the runway.

One key look Terry identifies is raw beauty, which could be seen at Chloé in Paris, Peter Pilotto in London and Donna Karan in New York.

"Chloé used the art of no make-up, and fresh faced girls from the 90s," Terry told Cover Media. "It's sexiness, texturising the raw face. The look is no longer block foundation."

While fresh faced beauty is always on trend, this Spring/Summer it will be one of the hottest make-up looks you can rock.

Prep the skin with your favourite moisturiser to make sure it's instantly hydrated then choose a mineralize foundation that gives a real hint of luminosity. MAC's Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation is a perfect choice, as it leaves skin radiant with a satin finish. Apply concealer where needed, but again make sure it's not too heavy. This look is not meant to be overly made up, instead aim for a natural finish. Finish with a dusting of MAC's Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder.

"Raw is now enhanced even at its most natural," Terry commented. "For Peter Pilotto in London, there was an effortless raw beauty with a matte veil."

Terry also reveals that naturalness hailing from the 70s is also en vogue. This means a luxurious look

with no extremes.

To go with the raw face, Terry suggests adding a slick of lip gloss.

"Lip gloss is back!" he smiled. "It's a new tool for making perfection. Use a clear gloss on a nude lip with skin that is poreless, eggshell baby skin.

"A luxe perfected reality with an eggshell skin" he added, which could be seen at Marco de Vincenzo's Milan show.

You don't have to stick to gloss when it comes to lips though; a pop of colour also works well with the trend.

Models at Aquilano Rimondi in Milan had the look of "young girls, slightly pretty, utterly chic" according to make-up artist Lucia Pica, with the addition of shocking pink lipstick to an otherwise natural face.

"A strong lip on a naked face is very modern," Terry said.

Try adding MAC's Eye Gloss in Lightly Tauped to the eyelid, brow bone, temples and cheek to achieve "the utterly chic" effect, finished with Pink Plaid lipstick and Candy Yum-Yum lipstick blended together over your mouth.
