Smokey Eyes, Nude Lips Tutorial by MAC Mickey Contractor

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 .

      1. Rati,

        you lucky lucky woman…you actually went under the magicians brush… :waytogo: I simply LOVE the look and you look like a diva yourself… :victory:

          1. No I am going in tomorrow, will meet him and pick up stuff from the collection. I am so super thrilled :woot: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  1. I thought the video might be of someone else, the way you made for Vimi joshi..but :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: U looking soooo cuuute..and MCCCCC!!!!! :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho:

    1. we were waiting for some customer to come because he wanted to demonstrate his concealer application especially on someone who had dark circles. But then there were issues whether the customer would let us shoot or not so Mickey asked if I would want to get my makeup done by him. I toh jumped at the opportunity :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

          1. finally saw it…. what brushwork…. like an artist working on his canvas….. in all you tube vids that i have seen, the brushwork is very diff…. no wonder he is what he is!

      1. You had written use Yash as a base..he put a lipstick as a base on your eye..or did I just not understand properly ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) (am dreading a repeat of the sharpener post now :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: )

          1. Okay..and what brush did he use for smudging the fluidline? I should have written down the rest of my questions 😐 😐 😐 😐

        1. no he did use Yash as a base on my eyelids. All the MUAs and I were in awe with him. :hypnotized: And btw my makeup stayed till 12 at night. :jaiho:

            1. know what Rati..even I was thinking…Yash is just such a perfect match with my skin tone..he he..I can very well use it as eyeshadow base and concealer too!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

    1. It was actually happening . πŸ˜€ People were getting makeup done by him and were buying things instantly. On one occasion he was asking a customer ” you dont blame me for empting your pockets no? ” πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      1. he he he…he is coming here tomorrow ….I want so much to go and meet him..sigh! I might just go, stare at him, feel completely lost about what he said and what products he talk about and then come back!! 😐 😐 😐

    1. i always keep wondering how do people in india become mac artists!!!??? i mean there is no mac pro academy and there is no mac pro store either in india no!!! enlighten me plzzzz… ?:) ?:) ?:) :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

      1. They apply to MAC and pick up jobs, Sireesha. I think all of them have some or the other makeup degree / certification. They work as makeup artists at stores and then move up n the ladder. Mickey contractor is a makeup artist from past 32 years. And he is not exactly the MAC makeup artist. He’s is an independent makeup artist with whom MAC has associated with.

  19. but you know rati….the woman walkiung behind you with that eye makeup was like scary ……..why didnt Mickey contractor kill her :spank: :zombiekiller: :zombiekiller:

    1. he he he I am sure he must have said something but not infront of everyone. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ rest everyone at the store had decent muted makeup for a change, only because mickey was visiting. πŸ˜†

  20. Rati -= wowwwww lovely yaa- so lucky to have makeup done by the maestro himself- m watching the video for the 3rd time now…
    loved ur look and ure soo beautiful.. muahhhhh

  21. oye lucky lucky oye…. πŸ™‚ :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
    Rati…….. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ nice..

  22. ahhh woowwww.. touchwood u super lucky!!! :-* :-* :-*
    i also do that trick for removing extra mascara :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    rati i loved ur look evn before the makeup!! ur hair and simple loops…u looked rocking!!! :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

    and i like the background music of the video! carefully selected..adds that weight since its mickeys… :waytogo: :waytogo:

    me soo sad i cudnt go to the store whn he was in mumbai..was caught up for fittings in colg :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep:

    1. Oh!! I wore my siahi fluidline look. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I removed my makeup. :))

      Thankoo. :))

      may be you could meet him some other time. I so wish he keeps coming up with collections. :yelo:
