Romero Jennings, senior make-up artist for M.A.C, breaks away from convention this season with the four looks seen below.
For once, being off is in trend, and unconventional beauty grabs the news.
IT’S the season to experiment and M.A.C Cosmetics pushes the envelope with its new Off Colour trend this Autumn/Winter 2014.
“Off Colour is one trend that uses classic tones, but with a muddied or dirty edge, so think deep plum hues mixed with rust or mushroom toned grey, sometimes mixed with undertones of ochre. These conventionally unflattering colours are popular and attract attention. They add vulnerability and a dark power at the same time,” said Romero Jennings.
As director of make-up artistry for the brand, he creates lavish, exotic and handsome looks. He has worked with people of all ages, from a six-month-old baby to an octogenarian, chanteuse Eartha Kitt. He’s been with M.A.C for 22 years and has created make-up for Broadway plays, music videos, fashion shows from New York to Milan, and magazine covers, having worked with well-known designers like Prabal Gurung and Proenza Schouler.
He has also worked on a lively list of celebrity clientele, including Mary J. Blige, Toni Colette, David Schwimmer, Naomi Campbell and “a Dream Girl or two”. He picked Daphne Guinness as one of his most intriguing clients as “she had an innocent but powerful spirit that flowed through the make-up”.
