Steal Binky’s Make Up Look
M·A·C Cosmetics was delighted to be the Official Make-up Partner to the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards, which took place last night at the Royal Festival Hall, London.
A host of stars from the world of television were in town for this prestigious awards ceremony and M∙A∙C ensured that guests arrived looking sensational for this year’s red carpet. The M∙A∙C Pro team were on hand to provide make-up services to VIPs in town for the Awards in the M∙A∙C Beauty Suite at The Corinthia Hotel, Whitehall Place London - and via one to one at home appointments.
M∙A∙C Senior Artist, Rebecca Butterworth comments on last night’s makeup trends on the red carpet:
‘Early 20th century glamour inspired last night’s beauty, with many looks referencing the vintage feel of Parades End and The Great Gatsby. Eyes were darkened with veils of smoke while lips took inspiration from Silent Hollywood starlets, all offset against a canvas of velvet textured skin. Bright reds were also hugely popular, and brought a spring/summer feel to the night’.
Over the years, M·A·C has provided its services to a wide range of entertainment productions. Makeup artists for a variety of important awards programs, movies, television shows, music tours and theatre productions have all employed M∙A∙C’s specialised expertise and resources. Working with BAFTA reinforces M∙A∙C’s reputation for supporting the behind-the-scenes needs of the professional community. This dedication to the makeup artist – M∙A∙C’s ultimate ambassador – defines M∙A∙C’s identity in the industry.
