Costume Goes Everyday
If you watched the Olympic Opening Ceremonies you most certainly saw M.A.C. make-up artists elaborate face designs. But six M.A.C. heavyweight artists will also paint the faces for the closing ceremonies, select figure skaters and victory medal presenters. The Canadian company’s selected artists are thrilled to be a part of the Winter Games and reported that their artistry runs the gamut from elaborate and theatrical to natural and outdoorsy.
M.A.C., like Polish cosmetic company Inglot, have their roots in costume make-up but have painted the mainstream make-up palate with vivid colors, making bold and bright accessible to every woman. In fact, just last week the Times Thursday Styles reported that now more than ever woman are opting for colors and relying on their make-up artists to show them how to wear the color appropriately. Teachers, corporate executives and even bankers – at least in NYC – don’t think twice about swiping their lids with blues, plums and greens, making make-up less of a necessary chore and more of an accessory. Whether it’s a painted pink pout or a purple lid, find your inner Rainbow Bright and use her to lift you out of the cold.
And if you are still scared, visit the MAC store on Prince in Soho. Unlike the two-week trained employees at Sephora, MAC make-up artists go through both costume and everyday make-up training and have mastered the art of balancing the two.
