AMW Reports: Ahoy! MAC Hey, Sailor! is here!

Over the weekend, I was invited to sail with MAC with their newest summer collection!  The gorgeous stripes that took my breathe away!  (As you all know, I have a thing for Nautical!). 

Because of a super busy morning, I arrived at the MAC counter, Glorietta later than the time I stated!  But the kind girls from MAC Philippines' Ms. Kirsten Brito and Rizel Magno welcomed me with open arms and I was ushered for my makeover right away!

Though I was a bit uncomfortable sitting at the center of the walkway with spotlight straight on my face!  I was game to have my makeover done as I have full faith in MAC's Makeup Artistry!

I requested for a day time look with a pop of lip color!  Let's see how I look like after!

The products laid out that will be used on me

Some key products from Mac Hey, Sailor Collection

Check out the contour on my cheeks!   I love how it was flawlessly done!  At this point, I have absolutely NO idea how I look like but I did my part sitting there like a mannequin!  *laughs*  I actually failed because I was busy chatting with Kirsten and my head was moving here and there which was an extra challenge for the makeup artist!  *laughs*

The pop of red that I requested!  At this point, I'm still not comfortable with bright lipsticks because most of the time, they dry out my lips showing cracks and dry spots instead of sexy lips!  And I'm happy to report that the way the lipstick was applied on me was flawlessly done as it looks smooth and moisturized!  Must be the combination of better formulation and the talent in application!

My final look with 
The talented makeup artist who has done various magazine covers!
Boy, was I a lucky girl!

With the MAC ladies!  
Thanks girls for the quick yet super memorable makeover!
