Her Favorite Things: MAC Senior Artist Cynthia Rivas
We’re true-blue when it comes to M·A·C Cosmetics---it’s simply our favorite makeup line. It’s hard to pinpoint one reason why we favor MAC above all others, but part of the reason is that they change it up by introducing exciting limited edition fashion forward lines, the colors are unreal, the lipstick selection is insane, and it’s a professional makeup artist brand. We were fortunate enough to meet MAC Senior Artist Cynthia Rivas at the Heirloom Mix launch event at South Coast Plaza.
She was in town to oversee the excitement of MAC’s latest holiday collection that pays homage to the classic cameo, there’s the bold berry lip, metallic shades, and iridescent and glitter that’s perfect for the holidays. We love the refined black packaging collaged with silver sparkles. Rivas was happy to share here top five must-have MAC products that she can’t live without.
Ruby Woo lipstick. The top selling MAC Retro Matte lipstick features rich, saturated color with a one-of-a-kind matte finish. It’s a MAC cult favorite formula. Rivas says this red looks great on all skin tones.
- In Extreme Dimension Lash. Rivas is all about thick lashes, and she loves that this volumizing mascara makes lashes thicker by saturating the lashes from root to tip, extending the length and creating curl. If that’s not enough, it also conditions lashes for softness and flexibility.
- Matchmaster Foundation. Rivas favors this foundations since it allows the skin tone to shine through and it’s perfect for daytime to nighttime. It offers customized shades in a flawless demi-matte finish with medium, buildable coverage and broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 15.
- MAC Blot Films. As a backstage international makeup artist for MAC, Rivas finds these blot films ideal for removing oil from the skin, without removing or altering makeup. They too are perfect for all skin types and get rid of unwanted shine.
Pro Longwear Concealer. The trick is all in the concealer, and Rivas says this one can do its job for 10-12 hours! It has a matte finish and it provides medium to full coverage with a comfortable, lightweight finish.
