M.A.C Face Charts NY Fashion Week
A Beauty highlight for us, the latest in M.A.C Face Charts from New York Fashion week came across our desks this week. We love how M.A.C always produce the face charts so you can see exactly how looks are achieved and the step by step instructions from their make up artists make it an easy task trying these out at home.
