MAC has released its latest trend report, based on beauty looks from MTV's Movie Awards, which were held on May 16, 2021. 

1. Oranges and Blues

The red carpet saw lots of summery colors. From a bright orange smoky eyes to aqua blue liner paired with matching blue mascara, color is finding its way into makeup for the summer. 

2. Summer of Lips

A bold matte lip was also a trend of the night, from colors ranging from pink to orange to red. MAC recommends a glowy and luminous skin base with fluffy lashes and a metallic lid to let the lips shine. 

3. 90s Lip

Another lip trend at the awards was a contoured lip, popularized in the 1990s. To pair with the contoured lip liner, add a gloss or frost lipstick in the center to help it pop. 

4. Double Wing

This trend includes double the liner. Starting with a heavy cat eye, directly under it add a smaller thin flick to accentuate the eye.
