Some Tips from Mickey Contractor, Director of Makeup Artistry India in his own words:
- Both the shades from the Double ended Concealer are to be mixed together at the back of your hand or on the palette and then used. (Check video for demo)
- If you want to conceal the reddishness on your face, just mix the yellow ( flesh) from the Duo concealer in your regular foundation.
- Jaan and Vivah from the Athma Eyeshadow quad are layering eye shadows. Mix the colours in the palette and create your own.
- Folie is my favourite eyeshadow.
- Duo corrector is my most favourite product from the collection.
- To create the perfect skin, generously moisturise your skin irrespective of weather or skin type. Then layer the foundation with a foundation brush (most imp.). Then pat a dry wedge sponge all over the foundation. Then lightly dust the coordinating shade of loose powder or Prep & Prime transparent powder all over your face.
- In MAC & Mickey Contractor Collection Visuals I have used Studio Fix Fluid foundations from my own collection. I have kept a mix of nude and colours in my collection so there is everything for everyone . There are various textures from matte to shine so you can take your pick.
- My favourite 5 products from MAC are Blacktrack Fluidline, Select Moisture Cover Concealer (as of now Double ended concealer from my own collection). Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, Plum & Cork Lip Pencils, Folie Eyeshadow
- With correct placement, quantity& correct choice of colours you can make most colours work for you.
- My favourite blush for lighter skin tone are dame + mocha; medium – gingerly, sincerely, mocha, pinch me, sur; dusky – all blush for medium skintones + love rush, razin. Gana is a highlighter and would work on all skintones.
- The collection hold a very special place in my heart. I have lived this collection for past two years . It’s a makeup artist’s dream come true.
- My collection inspiration has come from the real Indian women who visit the stores .
Only half of my face is done here –
I was especially invited to meet Mickey Contractor and interview him. It was a pleasure and honour. I spent almost whole of my evening taking to him , learning from him and i hope to see him again soon. :))
