I know this is coming late, but I have to mention MAC’s Guo Pei makeup collection! Guo Pei is a fashion designer in China who made dresses for both Rhianna and Zoe Saldana for the 2015 and 2016 Met Galas, respectively.
I really appreciated Guo Pei sharing that she had been influenced by American Westerns, especially the petticoat designs. No one was there to teach her how to make them, so she learned how to make them herself through trial and error. Hearing that story made me feel better about the 1,200 inch and a half hexagon pieces I went through trying to learn how to make grandmother’s flower garden quilts.
MAC’s Guo Pei makeup collection is stunning! With the packaging being in silk fabric, I had to support someone who was making textiles as art!
When I went out to celebrate my new position as a private duty nurse, I wore my MAC Viva Glam makeup collection. Viva Glam is the charity line created by MAC (Makeup Artistry Cosmetics) where all the proceeds go towards people living with HIV and AIDS:
As a matter of fact, MAC’s Viva Glam collection has given quite a bit of money to A Children’s Place Association in Chicago. I applied for a job there, but they called me after I received the one I already had!:
MAC’s Viva Glam makeup collection has had a lot of colors, but the ones that I get the most compliments on is the Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 1 makeup collection. She has moved on to orange, but I first purchased the hot pink. I haven’t worn colors like this since I was in high school and I love it. Whenever I wear the hot pink, people constantly ask me about the collection.
