Chances are that even if you live under a rock, you’ve heard of or used a MAC product—you may even have befriended a MAC addict or become one yourself. The popular beauty brand is a favorite amongst beauty novices and professionals alike. Known for their vast selection of more than 100 lipsticks, MAC stores draw crowds that rival those of Black Friday sales—hoards of beauty lovers on the hunt for a new lip shade, eye shadow, or a chance to be made up by their renowned makeup artists. If you are the latter, and you’ve braved the beauty storm for a chance to rock a flawless face á la MAC Pro team, then you are in luck.
Opening this week in the New York Metro area, MAC Makeup Studio is the first service oriented MAC store offering clients everything from beauty lessons to one-on-one makeup application in a salon like atmosphere. With only six makeup stations in place, this studio offers a completely different vibe from the traditional MAC store. For those who prefer a more private makeup experience, there are secluded rooms reserved for larger parties. While products are available for purchase, you won’t find them lining the counters in plain sight. So, you won’t feel crowded out of your space as you peruse the service menu.
So what exactly is on the MAC menu? Clients can choose from event-specific makeup application, lash application, tattoo cover-up, and a service called “Focus Features,” which focuses on enhancing one area of the face to the tune of a bold lip, sculpted face, winged liner, or [full] brows.
