Max May Media Makeovers

To celebrate the launch of Curtis Collection in Sydney, we recently hosted a private media session for some of our favourite beauty editors at Polished Beauty Bar in Woollahra – our first Curtis Collection Makeup Bar location in the Harbour City.

Renowned makeup artist Max May was on hand to give each of our exclusive guests a personalised makeup consultation in order to select the Curtis Collection products that would best suit their skin type and colour tones.

Here are some of Max’s pro tips and Curtis Collection favourites

Light Reflecting Mineral Concealer
An infant favourite, Max loved this wonder concealer particularly for highlighting all of the high points on the face. He loved the consistency of the product as well as the superior coverage that it offers. Our concealer has been designed to deflect light away from any visible imperfections on the face which creates the illusion that we have flawless skin. Max found that by reflecting light, this product was also ideal for highlighting. We recommend that our wonder concealer is best used following foundation and applied where light naturally hits the face – down the bridge of the nose, across the cheekbones, forehead and on the cupids bow.

Glam Lipsticks
Max fell in love with our Lipstick Collection. In fact he has one of each colour in his pro kit! Not only did the wide selection of wearable colours appeal to him, but the creaminess of the formulas allow him to create that sexy, supple finish on his shoots!

Mineral Shimmer Dusts
These highly pigmented silky smooth eye shadows were an instant hit with Max. He was able to create an array of looks ranging from a natural glowing eye, to a smokey finish in a variety of colours. He was impressed with the pigment and finish and suggests that these can be used dry or wet for a more dramatic finish. Max’s tip: Using this product wet means that you can also wear as a coloured eyeliner!

Brow Styler and Definer - This product actually featured on the Max Made website as his “Product of the Week”.  See Max’s review below.

My obsession for brows and mastering the perfect 90′s supermodel brow continues with ‘The Brow Styler by Curtis Collection. A revolutionary product that stains the skin for a longer lasting finish, while tinting the hair for a more lush, thicker looking brow. Tip; The key to mastering the perfect brow is to draw in similar strokes to the way your hair grows. Lay the Styler on it’s side to finish off the tale of the brow. Brooke Shields eat your heart out!
