MAC ‘Ageless Beauty’ Masterclass Event: Part Two

 

MAC Masterclass Event: Some of the free goodies and purchases

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of months ago, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  You can read my first post providing background on the event here.

This particular post focuses on the content covered in the Masterclass.  The Masterclass was called ‘Ageless Beauty’, with the focus on achieving beautiful skin at all ages.  The post gives more details on the class content, skin care routine, day look and evening look.

I have written a series of posts about the event which I will be posting on the site.  Each part focuses on a specific aspect, so you can either read them all or go to the one that you are specifically interested in.  Part One (read more here) provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a MAC Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event).  Part Two (this post) covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look).  Part Three will provide details on the tips and techniques I learned from the event.

MAC Masterclass Event: ‘Ageless Beauty’: Part One

 

MAC Masterclass Event: Some of the free goodies and purchases

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recently, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  MAC often runs special Masterclass events where you can learn various tips and techniques surrounding make-up application.  I feel I am experienced in make-up application but I thought it would be interesting to see how a professional make-up artist applies make-up and pick up some tips along the way.

I thought it might be useful to write a series of posts about the MAC Masterclass, with each part focusing on a specific aspect.  I’ve split the post into three parts as I felt that there was so much information I wanted to include and I thought it might be easier for you to easily navigate the content.    Part One provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event), Part Two covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look) and Part Three provides details on the Tips and Techniques I learned from attending the event.

This particular post – Part One – provides background on the Masterclass event, in terms of how it was structured, the goodies I received and some of the products I purchased.  These details may be helpful to you if you have considered attending one of these events but aren’t sure what to expect.

One of my close friends, Ema, asked recently if I had any tips how to prevent under-eye concealer from looking dry, creasing or settling into lines.  I thought it would be fun to write a post on this aspect of make-up, as there some tips and tricks which can prevent this from happening.

Are there any aspects of make-up which you would like some advice on? Perhaps you want some specific tips on make-up application or how to create a particular look?
