M.A.C. Cosmetics Media Launch (Picture Heavy)

Hey, everyone!

I've been missing in action for a while now and it's about time I give you an update on what's been happening for Beauty Jamaica. Most recently I got invited to the media launch for M.A.C Cosmetics as they intend to open a store in Jamaica in December of this year. Spanish Court Hotel welcomed traditional and social media representatives along with fashion designers and makeup artists last Thursday to mingle with M.A.C reps. I was extremely excited to attend this event. The senior M.A.C artist of the Americas region, Gisel Calvillo, gave the guests an introduction to the brand. She showcased major runway trends that have been set by M.A.C such as the dramatic deconstructed eyeshadow/liner; and, more importantly, Gisel highlighted the M.A.C Viva Glam campaign which is geared at raising funds for victims of AIDS.



The brand has decided to tackle the Caribbean and they'll start right here in Jamaica come later this year. Sovereign Centre is the place slated to host the store. And, from the buzz I've seen on the world wide web, Jamaican makeup lovers are looking forward to the grand opening. For MAC Sovereign Mall employment inquiries please reach Josie Wong Shing at joswong@estee.com. In the meantime, take a look at my pictures from the event. I'm so excited! I hope you are too.

My shorts were a hit at the event :)
