As the opening show at New Zealand Fashion Week, Mercedes-Benz presents Zambesi was futuristic and fresh, with punchy colours and standout styling. Kiekie Stanners created the beauty looks for MAC Cosmetics, and took inspiration from the colours included in the collection. The skin was matte - perfected with Goldlite Strobe Cream and Vanilla Pigment which was mixed together and applied to the skin. Cream Colour Base in Pearl was used as a soft highlighter along the planes of the face. It was the eyes which really stood out, in either neon pink or yellow, with pops of a darker version of the shade in the inner corner of the eyes. Stanners used a custom blend of Lipmix colours, and the inner corners were either Pigment in Process Magenta or Eye Shadow in Chrome Yellow. The lips were glossy and covered with Clear Lipglass.
