M·A·C cosmetics offers two beneficial services you should check out. If you need help with applying a makeup look or if you are not sure a look works for you, then you can have your makeup done by a M·A·C artist. They offer makeup consultations at all of their M·A·C counter locations. Consultation prices vary depending on service, so the best thing to do is to contact your local counter or store to schedule an appointment and discuss the costs. The M·A·C artists can really help you with finding the right every day or night look that compliments you. Or they can help you find the perfect colors for your skin tone.
The second service is free and can be found on M·A·C cosmetics’ site. The M·A·C Looks are step-by-step application guides to makeup looks already created by M·A·C and other guest makeup artists. The guide gives you instructions, visuals/sketches, and the M·A·C products to use for the look.
