MAC BAFTA masterclass and new product previews

For the 9th year running, MAC are the official sponsors of the BAFTA awards, and last week I was invited to a blogger's masterclass, where they showcased 2 red carpet looks:


After a quick introduction, champagne and canapes, senior artist Cher Webb got to work on the beautiful model.

The first look very much emphasised the model's natural beauty, and I love the flawless finish of MAC face and body foundation teamed with something Special cremeblend blush. This was finished with some Groundwork paint pot and a slick of To the future pro longwear lipcreme.

The second was much more eyecatching, with sultry smokey eyes and a bright lip. Despite the drama, it was surprisingly easy to create and only required an additional 4 products. First Make your mark eyeshadow was applied all over the lids, followed by lashings of smudged Feline kohl pencil. A strip of #3 lashes was added for extra definition, and Pro longwear lipcreme in Good to go completed the look.

At the event, we were also shown a sneak preview of some upcoming MAC releases:

First up are these rather fabulous Full coverage foundation palettes. Each palette contains 6 shades, and they will be available in a variety of colours.


Finally, we were each given a sample of lip products from the new Reel sexy collection. Pink popcorn is a lustre lavender lipstick and Colour saturation an eyecatching deep wine cremesheen glass.

Which of the 2 looks do you prefer? Will you be buying anything from the new collections?

    2. I got a purple eyeliner and eyeshadow duo instead. It's not too bad but just not something I would wear that often. x
