MAC Cosmetics is Coming to Ulta this Summer!

Mac-cosmetics-makeup-

MAC Lovers, great news is coming your way.  This summer you can get your favorite MAC products at Ulta.

MAC Cosmetics realized that it is not always easy for brand lovers to go get the products and they also heard customer requests to place it in Ulta Beauty Stores.

“This is a great opportunity to bring M.A.C. on stream to a whole new audience,” Karen Buglisi Weiler, M.A.C. global brand president, told WWD. “In my mind, there’s maybe a customer who shops at Ulta, but has never walked into a M.A.C. store. Maybe she’s never walked into a Nordstrom to purchase M.A.C. or maybe she’s never walked into a Macy’s.”

Ulta.com will have MAC Products available in May and customers will start seeing MAC in Ulta Stores mid-June.

Get the Look: Maisie Williams’ 2015 Emmy Awards

Maisie Williams walked the 2015 Emmy’s Awards Red Carpet with a stunning  beauty look.  Thanks to Kiehl’s Since 1851 and makeup artist Kindra Mann, you can create the stunning skin and makeup look at home.

“I was totally inspired tonight by Maisie’s retro feeling pink dress. I loved that the color and texture gave it a vintage feel.  We wanted the makeup to feel that same way, but with a more modern twist.”

“To keep Maisie’s skin looking fresh all night I started off by pressing a few drops of Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate onto her skin before applying a little of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for added moisture. I prepped the under eye area with a little of Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado.

“For the makeup, I first applied a thin layer of Kiehl’s Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Light all over, and then went in where I wanted a little more coverage with Kevyn Aucoin Skin Enhancer in #5. I set the foundation using Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in #1.”

 “For the cheeks I wanted to give Maisie a nice sun-kissed glow, so I warmed up her skin using Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow.  I used the darker shade to contour and warm the skin, and just applied the shimmer to the cheek bones for added glow. And, using a stipple brush, I applied La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Blush in Rose Glow to the apples of the cheeks.”

“Maisie has incredible eyes, and I really wanted to play them up. We decided to take a traditional cat eye and give it a modern twist by using plummy purple shadows. Using the Dior 5 Couleurs Palette in Victoire,  I blended the purples together focusing the lighter shade on the brow bone and inner eye.  Next I appliedPur Minerals Eye Polish in Velvet to the outer corners, creating a cat eye effect.  I then finished the eye by curling the lashes and applying a few coats of Pur Minerals Big Look Mascara before adding a few Ardell individual lashes.

“For the lips we wanted a nice nude color that was a little softer than the pink in the dress.  I started off by applying Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 to hydrate the lips. I then added Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in #1 Pale Pink Nude to give it that perfect nude color.”
