starring Julia Banas


By Beauty Editor Christine Cherbonnier


We are so excited to grow the Documentary Beauty tutorial section featuring never before seen tips and tricks, step by step behind the scenes footage, as well as documentary style beauty videos like this one featuring our Veiled Red cover model Julia Banas.


While applying Julia’s makeup for our Veiled Red cover story she showed me an amazing lipstick removal trick I’d never seen before, it just had to be shared! Julia’s dancer friend would use this technique for quick changes while performing, a perfect trick for easy lipstick changes behind the scenes.


Julia’s hair color is so unique to her look, she was the perfect red maned muse for our Veiled Red story. To demonstrate this 5 second lipstick removal trick I chose my three favorite M.A.C reds, perfect for most skin tones and even those red headed lipstick lovers.


I spent years wearing Lady Danger , it’s the brightest red orange out there, this shade is a traffic stopper! The perfect bright orange red, it’s velvet Matte texture glides on easy making it perfect throughout the day or night.


Next Kayla chose Ruby Woo, this classic bright red is one of the hottest selling shades by MAC. It's retro-matte texture makes it a little dry,  but one swipe goes along way. I suggest a good lip prep before application or a little lip balm in the center of the lips throughout the day. It’s vibrant and rich giving it a retro vibe, think Betty Page pinup perfection.


Last but not least Julia rocked the OG of lip colors M.A.C Red. Not only was this one of the original M.A.C lipsticks, it's the color that put them on the map as a coveted lip destination to this day.
