Not to mention MAC, who took me to see the new Cirque du Soleil show, Totem, at the Royal Albert Hall last night. The brand is providing the performers with all the make-up for the show (and even some exclusively designed products just for them). The make-up is out-of-this-world, the opaque vibrant colours, expert contouring, glitter and gems really put the performers into character, whether as an alien being, wild animal or caveman. What's even more impressive is that the performers don't have artists working on them backstage, they do all the make-up themselves. It just goes to show that when it comes to make-up a little bit of confidence and theatricality can go a long way.
