Here Comes MAC's Spring Colour Forecast!!!!!

Fresh, fun, and lively colors dominated all the four MAC Counters here in the Philippines with the launch of their Spring Colour forecast. Before this, clients were calling the stores asking for reservations and inquiries and makeovers were scheduled.

For this event, I guested for 2 days - one during the launch at the counter in Glorietta, and second at MoA. I also passed by the Rockwell counter to give them a visit and to collect some purchases as well. Hahahahaha.

So these were the four color palettes to suit anyone's mood:

Pink: Giggle, tickle, and tease with pink. Pink is always all-girly and flirty so we have candy-colored lipglasses, lipsticks, eyeshadows, and the pink-lilac blush ombre gradient. Check out also the crush metal pigment stacked jars in Stacked 1!, which are great to layer over the eyeshadows for a 3d sparkly finish. Nail lacquer in Galore Pink is a sweet pink color that would flatter the hands.

Coral: Coral is one color that looks great on tanned skin and enhances our glow. A product to try is the Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach (which was a bestseller as they got sold out in a matter of hours as they arrived at the store). Fresh Salmon is also one of my favorites, an entry-level orange that flatters any shade and would look great on tanned skin.

Plum: Plum was the most difficult shade to wear but actually, it's one of the colors I love. The Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape is actually very sheer instead of scary and used sparingly or swirled, it creates a fantastic plummy sheen. Hang-Up is a deep plum lipstick that looks great with warm smoky eyes. Since this tends to bleed, I recommend using lipliner to seal the color in.

Amber: For the beautifully bronzed, amber has shades from bronze to gold. Gold dust warms up a cool lip to go with tanned skin and Springshine could be used as a bronzer or a subtle contour powder. Do check the palette: Colour 4 : with four eyeshadow colors in the brown and gold spectrum.

Clients were also given a workshop on how they could wear these colors. Here's MAC Training Manager Sam Gallardo doing a demo during the launch at the MAC Counter in Rockwell.

That's Kate pre-makeup, fresh, and natural. Sam starts everything first with skin care before makeup. Here, she demonstrates how to use the plum colors. This spring, it's all about color, so go ahead and experiment. :)

Kate after makeup. :) The dress looks so cute and so mod.

Aside from the demos and makeovers, clients and crew could also opt to have their picture taken at the photobooth and have the pictures printed out as a souvenir. And who takes the picture but a very handsome MAC male model:

At the MoA branch, here's us having fun at the photobooth during the low-peak hours.

Cyndee, Owen, me, Rudge, Peabo, and Kate. We literally had to squeeeesh in. :P Fun. Fun fun!

Of course, hanging out in MAC for more than 3 days, I couldn't help but make my quackie very happy:
