MAC Cosmetics celebrated the opening of its new store in München, Germany by having an Art of the Lip party.
MAC, which was founded in Toronto in 1984, has since then taken the make-up world by storm, featuring in almost all runway shows and sold in 150 countries. This party is one of many that have been hosted around the world, each celebrating the many ways your can paint your lips. Lily Allen performed as well as drag queen Miss Candy and DJ Pierre Sarkozy.
At the party were MAC make-up artists showing the guests different ways of doing their lips, for example defining your lip line with lipliner, and making your lips look bigger with a bit of lip-glass in the middle of the lips. True to form, a fashion show also took place, with models wearing designs by Zaldy, giving an avant-garde vibe at the event.
Guests included Viktoria Lauterbach, Josefina Vilsmaier and her sister Thérèsa Vilsmaier, Verona Pooth, Alicia von Rittberg, Franziska Knuppe, Melissa Faber-Castell, Victoria Swarovski, Katja Riemann and her daughter Paula, Palina Rojinski, Nadine Warmuth, Bettina Zimmermann, Lisa Seitz and her daughter Luzie Seitz, Sophia Thomalla, Mina Tander, Lisa Tomaschewsky, and Tom Wlaschiha. General director Gabriele Medingdörfer was also there as was Bettina Zimmermann, who hosted the event.
München now has two stores (in Pasing and the OEZ), with a pro store set to open in August. MAC is also planning on opening more free-standing stores throughout Germany in the autumn.—Fenella Clarke
