MAC Will Open a Makeup Salon, and We’re Trying to Stay Calm

So long to buying products when you just want the beat!

Gone are the days when you rush into a MAC store hoping to get your face done up in exchange for buying a shadow or lipstick color (you’re probably not going to use again). We’ve all been there and done that. Some of us have even decided to make appointments with the MAC artists in hopes of looking the best at prom, a special birthday event or even a first date. But wouldn’t it be nice if MAC actually had a salon, where, just like you go in and get your hair done, you can go in and get your makeup done by their genius artists?

Well, pretty soon New Yorkers will be able to take the first MAC Makeup Studio salon test drive.

Opening on Lexington Avenue in the Big Apple, MAC Makeup Studio will put their “services out in front”, says creative director James Gager, by allowing customers to book full appointments for makeup application. They’ll even offer singular services, like a “cat eye” or “contour” for women in need of a specific look on the go.

While the Lexington store is the only one in the works of opening right now, MAC claims to prepare for an expansion if all goes well with their first location. We’re pretty sure all will go well, so let’s get ready for the newest addition to the MAC family.
