Who doesn’t love chocolate? We fell in love with chocolate even more after seeing this beauty look at the Jayson Brunsdon spring / summer 2015 show at Australian fashion week.

The look made by Nicole Thompson of MAC features different shades of chocolate topped off with a glossy finish, and it’s perfect even as a makeup look to wear in spring 2014. A good mix of monochromatic and shiny, this beauty look has a certain summery drama to it and is perfect for the woman of good taste. Check out our complete how to right after the jump.

How to: Jayson Brunsdon glossy chocolate look


Before anything you have to prep you skin using a luminous make up primer. For the Jayson Brunsdon show, MAC Stobe Liquid was used to give the skin its luminosity.


Next, create a flawless and healthy looking base by evenly applying foundation on your skin. If you have areas that need extra coverage like under your eyes, you can use a concealer. MAC’s Face and Body Foundation and Studio Finish Concealer are both highly recommended.

Take chocolate eye shadow pencil like MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche and blend it all the way to your eyebrows. You can also use a cream eye shadow if you don’t have a pencil.

Define your eyes by applying black eyeliner pencil on your upper and lower waterlines. Then take a coffee coloured eyeliner and draw / blend it over the black eyeliner: this will create that monochromatic effect on the eyes. For the Jayson Brunsdon show, MAC Feline Kohl and Coffee Pencil were used.


Groom your brows and define them. MAC Girl Boy brow set is highly recommended for this but you can also use eyebrow pencil or eye shadow (with the help of a brush). Just do it in short, soft strokes to keep them looking natural.


Contour your cheeks with some contouring or sculpting powder like MAC Shadester. Using a brush, apply this on the hollows of your cheeks or your jawline to create definition.

Once you’ve done contouring your cheeks, add some colour to it by applying a peach coloured lipstick like MAC’s Costa Chic on the apples of your cheek. Softly blend it to make it look like a natural glow.


Finish this make up look by adding some colour to your lips. Define them using lip liner like MAC Spice Up Liner and then keep them looking natural by applying a nude lipstick or you can do what was done in the show and use MAC Tinted Colour Cream Base.

While this look may be simple it’s still is very dramatic. The monochromatic style makes it very flexible – whether your off to the office or you’re heading out for the night, you’ll surely have a sweet time wearing this chocolate inspired look.
