Live from Kempinski Hotel, Dubai for MAC Cosmetics

Live from Kempinski Hotel, Dubai for MAC Cosmetics

A few days back MAC invited us to Dubai to cover the upcoming Autumn/ Winter MAC makeup trends for this year. It was quite an opportunity and we gladly accepted the offer.

IMBB is the official media partner for covering MAC makeup trends this year from India. :))

Every single thing starting from a business class air ticket to a stay in a 5 star Hotel is being paid by the brand. I am so overwhelmed to see IMBB grow this way. A big thanks to MAC for making it so special!

Here is my welcome kit, lots of reading stuff, some samples from the upcoming collections and an I-pod shuffle given as a gift. Loads of homework to be done before I head to the final presentation tomorrow. The trends photographs, videos etc would be featured on IMBB in the month of September.

I wish Indian companies treat bloggers the same way some day.
