Color me thrilled, MACaholics! We have some early holiday news. MAC plans to feature Olympic skater and three-time U.S. champion Johnny Weir in their upcoming Glitter and Ice Holiday Collection (LOVE HIM!).
According to the New York Post, Johnny just wrapped up a shoot in Miami for Glitter and Ice, and all I have to say about that: there better be sequins in the house; otherwise, Tabs will throw a fit!
MAC loves offbeat collaborations with guys and gals (hello, Dame Edna!), and Johnny, with his funky fashion sense and sassy performances on the ice, sounds like a good fit.
He’s also a major MAC fan and makeup maven. We spoke last year about some of his MAC must-haves and tips…
Q: What are your top three tricks to getting your skin looking flawless on camera?
A: Conceal everything you don’t want the world to notice, like blemishes or dark circles, with an amazing concealer like Cle de Peau or MAC concealers.Â 2) Blot away your shine and oil with MAC’s Blot Powder and Bronzing Powders.Â 3) Take care of your skin.Â If your skin feels beautiful and healthy, it will look beautiful and healthy.
Q: What’s a makeup lesson you learned the hard way?
A: When I first started wearing makeup to perform I learned that you need to apply bronzer very evenly.Â You can’t go out with a mocha face, latte neck and custard ears. I saw a photo of myself and was horrified; needless to say, I never made that mistake again.Â For men, the important thing is to look like yourself but one hundred times better with the help of makeup… it defeats the purpose when everyone can see how much you’ve got caked on.
Q: What are your three favorite MAC products to use before a performance?
A: MAC Blot Powder, MAC Bronzing Powder [and] MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Soothing Beige.
Work that Glitter and Ice, Johnny!
