MAC delivers their update to the aestetic of Stephen Sprouse ..
On Thursday 21 October, the UK’s creative industries came together at the M·A·C Pro-to-Pro party in London, to celebrate the medium of Typography as interpreted on the naked form!
The Pro-to-Pro party showcased body painting by the M.A.C Pro Global team of Makeup Artists. The inspiration was “Typography as Art” and featured creations based on a multitude of type designs – from ransom notes, Letraset sheets, free hand graffiti, Dada-ism and Roy Lichtenstein’s infamous artworks.
In a bold move, the designs were applied to totally naked skin – using the new M.A.C Pro Acylics! The intricacies of each design necessitated that each model was free from clothing – the art was so specific that even the smallest item of fabric would have interfered with the minute detail.
The event concept, first unveiled in New York last year, was developed as a response to the need for networking opportunities for the professional makeup community. The guest base grew to include hair stylists, models, stylists and performers when it became evident that these groups were also looking for places where they could meet people within their own industries. M.A.C Pro-to-Pro parties provide a platform for such interaction whilst exhibiting innovative, thought provoking and interactive animation!
Guests that attended include: Ellie Goulding, Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girls, The Ultra Girls, Jodie Harsh, Roxanne McKee, Al Pallay.
Guests attending the party at Victoria House in London were treated to drinks by Belvedere Vodka and a feast of delectable canapés ranging from Wild Mushroom and Gruyere Tart with herb salad, Grilled Short Ribs on Scallion Pancakes with Kimchi, Truffled Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Celery Relish and Apple Tarts were served.
