MAC Cosmetics Master Class: Bridal Makeup + MUA Interview

Share This:

Did you guys know I’m getting married?!

Oh yeah. This is happening, and it will be Sassy-brand epic from top to bottom.

Managing the top: hair and makeup, of course. I got a rare opportunity to attend a @MACCosmetics Bridal Makeup-themed Master Class and interview the renowned Tiffany Johnston, dual-decade MAC-inista whose roster is too long and star-studded to list. (But let’s just say there’s more than one Kardashian on it.)

Here’s our quick interview before the festivities, where I suss out the guts of things:

I got to see the real deal live in the Master Class itself – some of which I even Periscoped for you (click the link in the Tweet to watch):


Let me preface this by saying I’m not a makeup artist (I just brush a lot) – but I feel pretty enlightened as far as cosmetics are concerned. That said, listening to Tiffany was like hearing a golden goddess of makeup. Everything was illuminated. Even my notes came out very lovely looking:

MAC Cosmetics Notes on Bridal Master Class

I won’t go into great detail – you should really attend a class yourself! – but here were some of my favorite notes:

  • Certain otherwise-popular frosty highlights, such as top-of-browbone and tear-corner (two of my favorites) aren’t actually advisable for bridal makeup; they can look dated, too strong, or even make you look cross-eyed. Yeow!
  • A deep colored cream contour can look feathery and blend beautifully on almost any skin tone, which is why Tiffany prefers products like Studio Fix over powder contours.
  • More important than the ubiquitous primer: great skin prep with moisturizers and similar products. Tiffany’s go-tos are Fix+ and Natural Radiance.

Want proof she can make a fab bridal look in 45 minutes or less? Here’s our threlfie:

  1. This sounds awesome, I would love to go…how much is it? is it more if you don’t have a cosmetology licence (yet)? They should make one where it is targeted to regular women as well. And brides

  2. Congrats on your engagement! How exciting! Whoever he is is very lucky! 🙂 and I love MAC so this is great!
