MAC Cosmetics Backstage at Georges Chakra and Alice + Olivia
Due to computer issues, this post is a day late but the “Beach Chic” look created by MAC Make-up Artist, Gregory Arlt, was well worth the wait.
Artlt wanted to create a look that was “straight from the beach to the red carpet.” As a result, he created beautiful glowing bronze Goddesses to compliment Georges Chakra’s gorgeous gowns. He used warm tones like golds, peaches, and bronzes.
The MAC products used were:
Cheeks: Sun Basque Blush
Face: Motif eyeshadow as a highlighter underneath the eye.
Lips- Love Nectar, which Arlt called the “American Express of Lip Glosses..Never Leave Home Without It!”
Eyes- All That Glitters on lids and Dip Down Chocolate Brown Eyeliner to line the eyes.
MAC also did the make-up for the HOT design house Alice + Olivia. The look created by Lead MAC Make-up Artist, Nadine Luke, was inspired by the movie Pretty in Pink! Pretty in Pink is one of my favorite movies of all time! The look was Rock & Roll with a soft edge. Nadine used soft washes of color including lilacs, pinks, and mauves.
The MAC Products used were:
Face – Mineralized Foundation and So Sweet So Easy on Cheeks
Eyes- Rosy Outlook, Turkey, and Jessie in the inner corner of the eye
Lips – Angel lipstick and English Accents and Underage Lip Glosses.
The look is soft and pretty! Love!
I also had the opportunity to speak with the Lead Fekkai hair stylist, Andre Rodman. The hairstyle he created was classic Alice + Oliva…funky and fun! He created a “Rocker Sheek” look that included waves waves waves! He created this look curling the hair with a double barreled curling iron in a figure eight pattern. He used Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Volume Mousse before curling and finished with Fekkai Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme. The look is soft but sexy!
Beautiful Alice & Olivia multi-pink colored dress!
