MAC Cosmetics at the MMVAs
M·A·C Cosmetics was stationed backstage at the MuchMusic Video Awards last Sunday night, prepping performers and presenters for the spotlight. Some of the much-loved makeup artists were even summoned to the stars’ hotel rooms to get them all glammed up before their strut down the carpet. See below for some insider info on favorite products used at the MMVA’s.
The City star rocked the red carpet with glowing skin, subtly lined eyes and a neutral lip. M·A·C Sr. Artist Jane McKay used the following key products to achieve her radiant skin: M·A·C’s Strobe Cream, Care Blends Essential Oils, and Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder.
Jane highlighted her cheekbones with M·A·C Iridescent Loose Powder in Silver Dusk and gave her a slight flush with Mineralize Blush in Dainty. For a subtly rich look on the eyes, Jane used Omega and Woodwinked eye shadows, lined with Fluidline in Blacktrack and Eye Kohl in Smolder. Jane gave Whitney’s amazing lashes a boost by applying #7 Lashes and topping them off with Opulash mascara in Bad Bad Black. For a nude lip, Jane added Cremesheen Glass in Boy Bait – a makeup artist fave!

This Gossip Girl glittered in her dress, and M·A·C Sr. Artist Melissa Gibson based her makeup look around her outfit - a rusty orange coloured getup with tons of sparkle.
“We balanced the dress with a really strong cat eye. M·A·C Fluidline in Blacktrack was all around her eye and winged out at the end. I then added a small amount of eye shadow in Coppering to the lid to bring out that rusty orange hue. M·A·C Clear Brow Set in her brows and tons of Opulash mascara topped off the look!” said Melissa.
To get Jessica looking like a bronzed goddess, Melissa brushed Mineralize Skinfinish/Natural in Dark on top of Studio Sculpt Foundation, which added a contoured effect to her cheeks. “We kept the lip her natural colour and topped with Clear Lipglass so the focus remained on the eyes,” added Melissa.

As the co-host of the MMVAs, Miley had to stand out. For her look, freelance makeup artist Denika Bedrossian went with a clean, yet sexy, cat eye. “We chose to go with a matte eye shadow and a defined eye liner using M·A·C’s Fluidline in Blacktrack. I started with a base of Painterly Paint Pot and layered on eye shadows Vanilla and Orb, with Charcoal Brown in the crease and lash line. The inspiration for this look was a more rocker version of the classic Bridget Bardot look.”

The Hills star looked smashing at the MMVA’s. Freelance makeup artist Grace Lee gave her a defined eye using Eye Kohl in Smolder and Fluidline in Blacktrack (clearly the two favourite products of the night!!). She added a dab of Reflects Antique Gold on the lid for a hit of sparkle.
