A Quick One On One With Gordon Espinet of MAC

I had a day trip into NYC yesterday and there were many highlights, but one big one was finally meeting MAC makeup maestro Gordon Espinet. Gordon is MAC's senior artist and the man behind most of their amazing looks they create on the runway etc.

He is also super nice and very funny. We chatted about my eye makeup melt and now I am off to buy Prep and Prime eye, which I should have tried long ago. We also dished about his recent CBS Morning Show appearances. I got some scoop on the new trends for spring and MAC as well.

- It's all about Corals and lipgloss this spring. MAC has some amazing colors coming that we can't talk about yet, but trust me they are beautiful. Gordon said Coral was all over thr runways worldwide for Spring shows, and I recall seeing much of it myself. Some of the shows that used MAC's corals in them were Malandrino, Badgely Mischka, Peter Som and at least 10 more I can't remember. These, too, are light peachy corals. Not red based. Soft and sunny.

Lipgloss and is a big as ever. He said lipstick was more in favor this past fall , but lipgloss reigns again in Spring. They even used it on eyes.

- MAC StudioFix is one of , if not, the most sold MAC item. This item is a consistent huge seller, and 2 shades of it constitute the main sales. I personally love this , and have used it for somewhere near 14 years. There's a reason it sells that well. It was one of the first MAC items I got.

So there some news for you.

Since I was in NY all day and it's a very long commute in and out, I will have a regular post up tomorrow.
