Thursday night I had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of the new MAC Pro store in Miami Beach and of course, I took photos as quick as I could snap the shutter button.
The store design was incredible! Rough-hewn wood floors; sleek black table tops that sat on repurposed timber legs and frames; strings of modern lighting; shelves & displays of so much makeup my entire savings could have been blown in under an hour. The back wall of the store was definitely the focal point- jars of “paints” in every imaginable shade hovering on translucent shelves. Color is definitely IT for Spring 2010, ladies!
After oogling the store for a bit, we headed upstairs to the seventh floor of a parking garage. A parking garage doesn’t sound glamorous, but it can be quite cool when done correctly- combines a feeling of inside and outdoors, industrial decor, and most importantly plenty of room!
The MAC peeps had told me the exhibit centered around typography, MAC’s new acrylic makeup paints, and nude models. My love of font design combined with makeup??? Woo hoo!
Jami’s note: I’ve cropped and/or blurred some of the photos for display here on Bionic Beauty. If you’d like to see the full artistic works (artistic nudity involved, you’ve been warned), mosey on over to my Picasa Album.
Little did I know that the eye-candy had just begun…
The Makeup Artists arrived at 7:30am and worked all day, yet they were still full of energy when I arrived twelve hours later!
