by Daniel Haim

M.A.C Cosmetics and the M.A.C Pro Team will be decamping to the legendary Isle of Wight Festival to keep a host of top celebrities, performers and guests looking refreshed from dusk until dawn.

As the festival celebrates its 10th anniversary in its current incarnation, the M.A.C Pro Team will be on hand to provide the ultimate festival makeup facilities for guests in the coveted IOW Festival Hospitality area and in the Artist Village on Friday 10th – Sunday 12th June from 12pm – 8pm daily.

M.A.C Artists will also have their brushes at the ready backstage in the festival green rooms where they will be geared up to provide makeup services to key talent performing over the weekend. Headline acts include The Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, Foo Fighters, Beady Eye, Pulp, Kasabian, Jeff Beck, Plan B, Pixie Lott and Eliza Doolittle to name a few.

Terry Barber – Director of Make-up Artistry at M.A.C Cosmetics has provided some beauty rules for festival chic this summer and to make sure the VIP festival goers keep their makeup looking great come rain or shine. M.A.C will be arming guests with Terry’s festival makeup essentials:

“Your favorite festival ‘survival kit’ should be tailor made with all the iconic ‘quick-fix’ products you need to keep groomed whatever the conditions! It’s not about wearing full on glamour – it should be much less try hard. Clean, dewy skin, sixties mod girl lashes, a combed up brow and plump stained lips. Light on the coverage and heavy on the cool!”

“Prep the skin with the brilliant M.A.C Prep and Prime Skin and add a bit of M.A.C Strobe Cream to the high points of the face for a bit of a ‘techy’ natural skin”. ‘Done’ lashes are back this season. Apply some major layers to top and bottom lashes with the amazing M.A.C Studio Fix Lash Mascara. Finish the look by staining the lip with a lush layer of M.A.C Tinted Lip Conditioner. It’s the return of the flower child!”
