M·A·C Cosmetics, founded in 1984 to support the needs of professional makeup artists, is one of the most influential and successful companies in the global cosmetics industry. For more than 20 years, M·A·C has constantly asserted its ability to fuse fashion, fun and fantasy. The cornerstones of M·A·C’s success – innovation, originality and inventiveness – set it apart from any other cosmetics brand. All of these words could also be used to describe Scottish Ballet, who M·A·C are proud to support.
M·A·C Senior Make-up Artist Cher Webb visited students on the BA Modern Ballet degree course at the RSC to explain some of the principals of makeup specifically for stage.
Cher explained that it was important to wear more make-up on stage that you would in everyday life, as the bright stage lights are very draining. She taught the students some of the basics of contouring (making features look slightly different shapes) and how to apply false eyelashes.
During the course of the two hour lesson the students learnt lots of tips on how to best apply make-up and had plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
M·A·C are proud to support both the RSC students and Scottish Ballet.
