Grab your girls, take a seat and prepare to learn the tricks of the trade in just 90 minutes with a Makeup Party at M.A.C Cosmetics’ flagship.

We’ve all been there and done that. The silent ‘please let it be even’ prayer we’ve recited to the makeup gods before we apply our eyeliner, or the first time we’ve attempted contouring and ended up looking more like a tiger than a Kardashian. Though our intentions may be pure, sometimes it’s best to just put the brush down and leave it to the professionals.

Luckily for us, M.A.C Cosmetics has added a new makeup lesson to its repertoire – the M.A.C Makeup Party. One for you and your girls (or guys), the Makeup Party is a 90-minute group lesson where a M.A.C Artist will teach you and your besties the art of makeup. Simply come with your foundation/base already applied, choose two focus features from eyes, brows, contour or lips that you’d like to master and let the pros show you the way.

From smoky eyes, red lips and bold brows – you’ll learn what works with your eyes, skin tone and face shape. Armed with your own handheld mirror you’ll be able to watch the M.A.C. Artist work their magic on your face as they guide you through the products and how to apply them.

Best suited to groups of three to 12 people, a Makeup Party is a wonderful way to celebrate a hen’s do, a birthday or just a really good excuse to get the gang together. At just $90 per person (all of which is redeemable on product), it begs the question – if you’re going to splash out on a few new items, why not make a party of it?

To book your Makeup Lesson, simply give the M.A.C Britomart team a call on +64 9 358 4200 or pop in store. Available Thursday – Sunday only.
