So last year M.A.C. held a competition to give 6 fanatics a chance at a makeover and to the the faces of one of their fall campaigns.  I entered.  I didn’t win 🙁 But here is the collection.  I’m glad M.A.C. chose 6 very different people, including a dude! And the lady with the silvery hair, fierce!!!!!
