Make it Matte with M.A.C: Beauty Magnified at Arnotts

Throughout April, the Arnotts beauty event, BEAUTY MAGNIFIED, brings a stellar line-up of experts, brand founders and leading international make-up artists to the Beauty Hall …

Alberta Ferretti SS19 beauty using M.A.C product

On Friday April 5 at 6pm, join M.A.C Senior Artist Lesley Keane for a focus on the latest catwalk trends and M.A.C beauty. Everyone has their favourite M.A.C product – whether it’s Studio Fix foundation, the iconic Strobe Cream or Haute & Naughty Lash mascara. But for many of us, it’s always been about their brilliant matte lipsticks – if you don’t own Ruby Woo you’re missing out – while Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour has been an absolute essential backstage at the catwalks since it first launched in 2016. And the new Powder Kiss collection brings a whole new dimension to wearing matte lipstick.

Whether you’re already a devotee, or else you haven’t quite found your perfect matte yet, Lesley will demonstrate how to create different finishes, from soft and blotted to defined and bold. Lip Powder Kiss deliver the softest shades that can be built up to a highly saturated finish.
