Naturally, M.A.C—being one of the most iconic beauty brands around—was all over London Fashion Week and just served up the dreamiest, understated Quiet Luxury makeup look to rep this fall.

M.A.C unveiled their effortless take on Quiet Luxury beauty (that has occupied all our dreams ever since we might add) at the Roksanda show on Saturday, September 16, 2023, with the look focusing on soft, natural-looking skin, complete with a glossy lip and eye and to put it bluntly, we're obsessed.

So, here's how to recreate the chic vibe, using the exact products worn down the runway at London Fashion Week 2023...

Recreate M.A.C's Quiet Luxury runway-ready makeup

As mentioned, this glassy and subtle makeup took center stage at London Fashion Week but M.A.C also played with an understated, natural vibe at New York's own Fashion Week. So, that's a pretty clear indication that this makeup trend is, well trendy, especially on the high fashion circuit.

Elaborating on the look, Sharryn Hinchliffe, Executive Director of Makeup Artistry at M.A.C Cosmetics said: "We’re playing with texture this season, complementing the fashion with satin finish skin, a glossy lip and glassy eye. It’s not 'no makeup makeup', it’s raw but flawless.” Ooph, we love that.

And better still, you can actually nab all the products used to create the IRL elegant look for very affordable prices—from M.A.C's signature Lipglass (which takes pride of place in Rosalía's lip combo by the way) and the brand's Studio Radiance Serum Powered Foundation.

This look is perfect for those who already adore a natural, 'French Girl' like makeup look but are seeking a way to elevate it for an occasion or just change things up. According to M.A.C, the answer is a glassy eye look and a pop of lip gloss. P.S. A lip oil nail look would also complement this beauty routine perfectly.
