Mac cosmetics came into the make up and cosmetics industry in the 1980’s due to frustration and need. Two male makeup artists were frustrated with the fact that the makeup that was used on the majority of photo shoots with models and actors had two problems associated with it. The first problem with the majority of the makeup that was used at photo shoots was that the application of the fashion makeup was ruined because it ran and had to constantly be reapplied throughout the duration of the photo shoot because of the hot camera lights. This would make the photo shoot run both over time and over budget. This, in turn caused many people in the fashion industry to be unhappy. The second problem with the makeup that was used for photo shoots was that the beautiful colors of the makeup would get washed out or lost completely because of being under hot lights for so long during the day and even sometimes during the night. These two male fashion photographers decided out of frustration, need, and their own creativity and imagination that they were to create and design a makeup that could be used for fashion photography that could combat the darn hot camera lights. Therefore, Mac cosmetics made their grand entrance in the world of makeup, cosmetics, and high fashion. Models all over the world would be saying a giant thank you for Mac cosmetics.
Mac cosmetics is really a acronym for Makeup Artists Cosmetics so it is common sense that this brand of cosmetics would be easier for all makeup artists and fashion models to use on a daily basis and even sometimes even on a nightly basis. Fashion photo shoots seem to take a long time. Well anyway, Mac cosmetics not only was created and designed for the reasons already stated above but they were also created in order to provide fashion models and actors alike a wide variety of colors or blush, lipstick, lip gloss, and mascara to chose from. Mac cosmetics seem to be a fashion model’s dream come true. This makeup and cosmetics line also has a variety of fragrances to choose from. In addition, even though Mac Cosmetics was designed for the entertainment industry, regular woman and men can afford this great line of fashion make up and cosmetics. Lipsticks are only about 8 eight dollars a piece. Hurray for Mac cosmetics because they are both a dream come true for fashion models and modern women alike.
