Sean Kelly wanted three beauty looks to tell “the story of a woman who evolves throughout the collection with her makeup following suit”.  Created by M.A.C Cosmetics Senior Artist Kiekie Stanners, the makeup starts with a sky blue liner, moves into an evening smoky eye and finishes with an after-hours red lip. See below for how to recreate the three stunning looks.
