A Birthday MakeoverKeep Calm and Go To MAC

This year my mom went easy on me and told me exactly what she wanted for her birthday… a new look courtesy of MAC Cosmetics.  Suffice it to say I was happy to make that wish come true.

I called up my friend, the MAC makeup artist, and she advised me to make an appointment [who knew you could do that].  Here’s how it went.

For $50.00 you are given a private makeup counter and a makeup artist who gives you a 45-minute (or so) beauty consultation and makeup application.  She (or he) tells you what colors suit you and explains the application process so that you can repeat it at home.  Then I treated my mom to the makeup that the artist used on her.

She loved it so much she didn’t want to take it off that night.  Home run!

To plan a makeover for the beautiful people in your life, visit MAC Cosmetics and contact the store closest to you.

So as you embark on this new year, remember, don’t let buying and giving gifts stress you out.
