Stella McCartney SS12 incorporated the sports kit into catwalk looks

Fashion and beauty have joined forces to deliver the ultimate sports kit this season

Look no further than beauty’s sports trend to feign your gym sessions this season! Focusing on dewy skin and a fresh blush, this look exposes real beauty, covers where needed and promotes the spirit of athleticism that’s ever building with the nearing Olympics. It’s without a doubt  the perfect partner to the sporty looks ruling both high-end and the high-street this season (shop the trend here).

“This is a beautiful, glowing, no-make-up look with a more sporty and real feel to it that we’ve seen in the past: there’s definitely nothing relevant about a full-coverage base this season,” notes Diane Kendal in MAC Trends Spring/summer 2012 guide.

Spotted at Christopher Kane, Altuzarra, Alberta Ferretti and Alexander Wang the girls radiated energy.

To recreate the look, invest in the following MAC products; Prep + Prime Skin Compact, Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation, Lip Conditioner SPF 15, Clear Lipglass, Smolder Eye Kohl.

Here’s the sporty trend highlights to get you going…

At Alberta Ferretti SS12 Diane Kendal for MAC created ”beautiful girls.”

Backstage at Alexander Wang spring/summer 2012 Diane Kendal recreated the ”urban nineties” using an array of MAC products, notably Smolder Eye Kohl and Black Creme Liner.

Focussing on ‘fresh’ skin, Lucia Pieroni for Chantecaille told Glam backstage ‘we wanted the girls to look fresh, flushed and sporty, as if they’d been running up a hill.’
