New Zealand Fashion Week: MAC Backstage Beauty Wrap…

By  | 

See a makeup look during New Zealand Fashion Week that you fell in love with? Well, you can bet your ass that if you were coveting a dramatic eye, flawless foundation, bold lip or even some super slick nails that you saw on the runway during NZFW, we’ve featured all those key looks right here, that MAC created for all of New Zealand’s biggest fashion designer’s runway shows. You didn’t really think we’d let fashion week come and go without featuring our favourite cosmetics, artists and their creations did you? That’s just crazy talk!

Thanks to the lovely Katie of MAC Cosmetics, we’ve compiled each designer’s runway show, key makeup artist, the inspiration and of course, the-all-important product list and finished look. Enjoy…
