Break Free

Meet M.A.C’s lat­est Viva Glam spokesper­son – FYI, her range is for char­ity, so it’s to­tally jus­ti­fied spend­ing.

CLEO (Malaysia) - - CON­TENTS -

Ar­i­ana’s mad about M.A.C.

Ar­i­ana’s known for sport­ing one look and one look only (sig­na­ture half-up pony with an ul­tra glam cat-eye flick, any­one?), which makes her Viva Glam col­lab with M.A.C a se­ri­ously bold move. While pre­vi­ous Viva Glam celebs have opted for match­ing shades, Ar­i­ana’s sur­pris­ing combo makes sure ev­ery­one is catered to.

Why is it im­por­tant to be vo­cal about your work with the M.A.C AIDS Fund?

Not enough peo­ple are talk­ing about it. M.A.C helps peo­ple recog­nise their dif­fer­ences, and that it’s okay to speak out about these kinds of things. M.A.C and I have the same values – we both want equal­ity in this world. It’s guilt­free shop­ping; buy a lip­stick, save a life.

What was it like work­ing with M.A.C?

It was a dream come true! I got to pitch them my ideas for colours and they

loved it. I am proud to be part of the M.A.C fam­ily. I’m in such a great com­pany. I want peo­ple to re­mem­ber how I made them feel. That they made a do­na­tion and it went a long way.

What was your first en­counter with M.A.C Cos­met­ics like?

When I was eight years old, I was play­ing An­nie. My mom took me to the M.A.C counter to start my make-up kit. She bought me a grey eye­shadow to use as ash on my face.

What’s your usual go-to beauty look?

A brown shim­mery smokey eye paired with nude lip gloss – I do these with or with­out a cat-eye. Lately I’m try­ing more of a smokey eye.

What makes you feel the most em­pow­ered?

I look up to the women in my life, es­pe­cially my mum and Nonna. They taught me that I can do any­thing, and they keep me grounded.
