Lifestyle | Life

Marco Louis is the senior artist at M.A.C Cosmetics Africa and he shares his tips from the front line of this iconic brand.

Yes, the thirst is real

“Keep the moisture up. Sure, you want to keep cool, but we all know how cruel an air conditioned environment can be on your skin.”

“Use M.A.C Fix + mist generously throughout the day. The mist will penetrate your make-up and keep everything fresh.”

Ruby to woo the boardroom.

“Office attire may not always allow for your inner vixen to come out during work hours. A great lip colour lets you spice it up and keeps everyone locked on your every word.”

“I recommend M.A.C Ruby Woo lipstick. It’s the perfect everyday red for absolutely every skin tone.”

Smize is the prize

“You want to give a stunning smile not only with your lips but with your eyes too. Full lashes are the epitome of femininity. If you look closely, you’ll notice that Minnie is the same character as Mickey Mouse – except for her trademark bow and eyelashes!”

“Stock up on M.A.C #7 lashes for a night out with the girls. These lashes are the perfect quick fix!”

Get the perfect sheen

“Come sun or strobe light, you need to highlight your best features to make sure you grab all the attention.”

“Use M.A.C Improper Copper, a cream colour base, on the high planes of your cheeks and the bridge of your nose. This hero product is easily applied with fingertips or a brush.”

“Thank me later!” he says.
