Getting your makeup done professionally is no longer limited to special occasions – especially in New York. Heading out on a date after work or just need help perfecting your winged eyeliner technique? Perfect. MAC Cosmetics has opened the doors to its first makeup studio. The MAC studio, located on 63rd and Lexington Avenue, has been well under wraps for over a year-and-a half and opened last week. With prices ranging from $10- $90, you can opt for a single focus feature application, lessons or gather your girls for a 90-minute makeup party.

“This is the first time we’re putting services out in front,” said MAC Creative Director James Gager. “So if you want to skip the cosmetic counter at your local Macy’s where they persuade, borderline force, you into buying yet another makeup brush or mascara, the MAC studio is your best bet.

The studio is open seven days a week, as early as 7 a.m., just in case you didn’t get your beauty sleep and need an early morning refresher. With only six chairs available, online booking is highly recommended.
