M.A.C. cosmetics has opened a huge new flagship store in the heart of Union Square on Powell Street. It's the brand's third flagship in the country, and its very first flagship to include the full PRO lineup of products. The 1,340-square-foot sales floor has an extra 1,500 feet-plus for events, and is organized into four zones: new collections and signature colors; makeup services and application, including six stations and one private room; the PRO area for, you guessed it, professional makeup artists; and a skincare plus lash bar area.
The new store is home to 45 PRO makeup artists from a variety of backgrounds to accommodate local residents as well as international travelers. If you happen to be one of those local residents, you're invited to check out the store for special events from Friday, March 21 through Sunday, March 23. The store will have live DJs and closing bands each night. Senior artists will be on hand for tips, makeup demos, and to answer questions about anything and everything M.A.C.
