The make-up artists from MAC show us fashion week through their eyes…


As the official beauty sponsor for London Fashion Week, it’s no wonder that the team at MAC use a lot of make-up over the London Fashion Week’s five day spans.


And for the second season running, the make-up maestros have given us a lowdown on just what those five short days mean for them in facts and figures – you’ll be amazed at the results.

During fashion week, MAC make-up artists:

  • Will work on 200+ fashion shows
  • Have 250+ years experience between them
  • Get just 4 hours sleep a night (ouch)
  • Will use 1,790 lip products, 3,970 eye products, and 800 lashes, and a staggering 18,000 make-up wipes
  • Have used toilet brushes, lighters, wax and tea bags to create make-up looks
  • Will indulge in naps, champagne and retail therapy

And don’t imagine you’ll be able to reach a MAC make-up artist during the shows, as the team will also miss a whopping 4,000 phone calls! NL
