MAC Hires Bodybuilder Model: Inside the World of Muscle Makeup
Forget pageant queens and reality stars, no one lays the makeup on thicker than a female bodybuilder. If you were about to walk onstage in a thong swimsuit and have your muscles judged under dentist lights, you’d take your beauty regimen just as seriously.
MAC debuted its latest spokesperson, Jelena Abbou, a Serbian-American female bodybuilder with the kind of ripped physique more likely to be found in Muscle Milk ads than high end cosmetics campaigns. AND SHE IS BEAUTIFUL!
“The reason female bodybuilders look so dark is because tanners help define cuts and shreds,” says Monet Colbert. BUT TOO MUCH TANNING MAKES THEM LOOK GROSS!
“If your face doesn’t match your tan that’s going to work against you,” says Colbert, “even if you’ve got the body judges are looking for.” HOPEFULLY THEY CAN WASH OFF THOSE 8 CANS OF BRONZER! THE MAKEUP NEEDS TO MAKE THE TAN AS WELL, NOT GIVE THE LADY RACOON EYES!
If you’re doing a dark eye, you’re going to want a softer lip–a coral color is popular,” says Colbert.
A lot of us use MAC,” Monet Colbert, a makeup artist and former bodybuilder, tells Yahoo Shine. “It’s designed for theatrical stage performances.” That means it holds up under the double white lights designed to capture every muscle striation–and if you’re not prepared, every wrinkle.
I GUESS W/O ALL THAT BRONZER & FAKE TAN APPLICATIONS, THEY ARE JUST NORMAL WOMEN WITH GREAT PHYSICS – WAY TO GO MAC!
