So if you read my post about my Professional-ish Opinion about certain products I use, you will know I am a big supporter of MAC Cosmetics. I did some further digging after my last post and while I’ll agree their products are in no way organic or natural, the company itself stands firmly behind messages of gender equality and animal equality. That being said, we can move on – because it is fact. (Just to firmly cement that – I wrote a Master’s Thesis on Estee Lauder Companies…)
So since my hair color change, the makeup colors I had, were just not working. I felt like Poison Ivy if I wore any auqas or greens and like a glowing warm light if I wore my usual copper eye shadows.
A few weeks ago when I purchased my original Paint Pot, I signed up for the special launch event for Antonio Lopez’s MAC makeup collection.
This entailed me getting my makeup done by one the of the lovely girls at MAC and then the ability to purchase from the new collection before it sells out. (Because it is going to go fast.) I had the amazing Stella do my makeup – if you live in Chicago and need a little makeover or just want to stop into MAC go to this one in Lincoln Park and ask for her – she is FAB. I had so much fun getting a new look and it is PERFECT. I would have never thought to pair the new set Stella picked out for me and I am in love with it.
Anyways – let’s look at photos of my face with new Antonio Lopez Collection on it.
Several shots of the new colors the top/bottom left are done by Stella and I love them for a great evening/date/night out look. The ones on the top/bottom right and center are more day looks and I LOVE THEM. The new line really compliments my power drill as I was making myself a CRAFT ROOM (listen that post is coming up!).
My current set-up. The Antonio compact, my pro-compact for 16 shadows (of which 13 are poison ivy/warm glo causing), the new Pro Paint Pots (AMAZING), Face and Body Foundation in Ghostface Knitter White, then eyeliner and misc brushes.
It may seem like a lot for makeup, but it’s honestly a simple and very flattering look for me and my new red do! Thanks Stella at MAC! 🙂
