LONDON, June 14, 2010 - M.A.C Cosmetics and the M.A.C Pro Team decamped to the
legendary Isle of Wight Festival to keep a host of top celebrities,
performers and guests looking refreshed from dusk until dawn…AND, this year
festival goers were able to make like a VIP and experience M.A.C in all its
glory for the first time ever front of house at a music festival!

The M.A.C Pro Team were on hand to provide the ultimate
festival makeup facilities for guests in the coveted IOW Festival Hospitality
area. M-A-C Pro artists created dazzling looks for Florence Welch of band
Florence and the Machines who opted for a deep burgundy lip created using
M-A-C Lipstick in Diva, lined with M-A-C Lip Pencil in Burgundy. She also
choose M-A-C's Paintpot in Groundwork to create a matte, light brown hue on
the eye… She kept these key products to maintain her look for the rest of
the day.

Model Erin O' Connor also visited the M-A-C tent twice
throughout the weekend. On the Saturday she choose a dramatic winged out eye
with a feline feel, created using M-A-C Pigment in Platinum, M-A-C Black
Black Chromaline and to add extra length and volume to the upper and lower
lashes several coats of M-A-C Zoom Lash Mascara was applied. On Sunday a
playful tie-dye look was produced using M-A-C Pigment in Violet, Indigo Eye
, Eyeshadows in Newly Minted and Electric Eel which were blown out
across the eye. Extra drama was added by applying M-A-C #36 lashes. A pop of
colour was added to the lips using M-A-C Cream Colour Base in Virgin Isle and
Creamsheen Lipg;ass in Boy Bait to finish the look.

Marie Junior of The Brilliant Things choose a Smokey eye with
colour for an edgy play on this classic look. M-A-C eyeshadows in Club and
Juxt were blended together and M-A-C Eye Kohl's in Tarnish and Smolder lined
the upper and lower lash line. Drama was added to the eye with M-A-C #3
Lashes and a 'moonlit wetness' completed the look by pressing in M-A-C Pro
Reflects in Teal. Lips were paired down using M-A-C Viva Glam II lipstick and
M-A-C Clear lipglass.

M-A-C Pro Artists were also called upon for some body painting
requests. Eye Mask designs to the renowned Isle of Wight Peacock were painted
freehand using M-A-C Pro Chromacakes in a variety of shades. M-A-C Pro
Reflects Pigments were added to the finished creations taking them to another
dimension, adding high shine and a magical sparkle.

All of the VIP's and Talent that visited the M-A-C area in hospitality
requested Lashes… and the colour of choice for lips was red in a myriad of
shades. M-A-C's Lady Danger, Russian Red and Ruby Woo were some of the most
popular requests.

Makeup junkies were treated front of house too in M-A-C's inaugural
retail site in the festival main arena. A 35 strong team of M-A-C artists
conducted 500 thirty minute makeup appointments over the weekend - lashes
were again the most popular choice!
