Just in time for romance and exclusive to Nordstrom, M•A•C has released four Looks in a Box that provide all the makeup you need to create a completely stunning face—on your already gorgeous canvas.
Each kit contains a lipstick, cream base, mascara, eyeliner, two eyeshadows and a blush. But each prescribes a unique colorway and application process to achieve a distinct style. “These are colors that work harmoniously together,” says senior M•A•C artist Victor Cembellin. “Cosmetics departments can be overstimulating. We wanted to pare that down for somebody who wanted a personal makeup shopper to tell them what they need.”
The looks are titled “Be a Little Naughty,” “Be Sweet & Dreamy,” “Be Cool” and “Be an Original.” In preparation for Valentine’s Day, we asked Victor how to perfectly construct “Be a Little Naughty” and “Be Sweet & Dreamy,” two mood-setting options for date night—one with a matte red lip, the other with a nude lip. He added some extra M•A•C products to really amp up the effect, but both styles can be done with the Look in a Box products alone.
Here are his face charts and step-by-step instructions to get these sex-kitten and angelic looks.
