MAC makeup demo interview

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys!

So i just had a second interview with mac today! It was my makeup demo! The makeup turned out great!! i had to do a day look then transform it into a night look with lashes. The MAC artist said it looked really good and the colours i picked were perfect. I put the best false lashed on in my life haha thank god because i was nervous about that! The only thing is i felt i didnt talk enough. I was explaining what i was doing as i did it, but since my model was my friend it was weird pretending i didnt know her haha and didnt know if i should have faked small talk as well!? haha Just wanted to vent and see how anybody elses make up demos went? Fingers crossed i get the job!

Peace,
Chelsea xo

Re: MAC makeup demo interview

Congrats Chelsea, sounds like your demo went well! I know what you mean about trying to treat your model like a "customer"--my friend kept making funny faces at me during my demo as if to say, "woman, who are you trying to kid?" Haha. But I must've done something right and was hired--going on a year now with MAC

Good luck and keep us posted on the outcome!

Re: MAC makeup demo interview

I had my demo interview in May, and unfortunately I didn't get the job. The manager told me my application and color choices were good; however, she said I sounded more like I was giving instructions than actually talking with a customer. I think that because I chose to bring in a friend as a model I didn't quite know how to talk and not make it sound awkward. But you're interview sounds as if it went well, and if not you can always reapply in 5 months. In fact I was in there the other day and the manager asked me to reapply this October! Good luck and keep us posted!

Good Luck!
I was just hired a couple weeks ago....I was a little concerned about my model as well since she is a really good friend ..but they pulled the ole' switch-a-roo on me when I arrived and swapped models with the other girl that was interviewing so although it was a new face, I could talk a little more easily Keep us posted on the answer

Re: MAC makeup demo interview

Thanks guys!!
Sooo i heard back and the manager said she love me and the make up I did; however, they ended up going with someone else BUT she said since she really liked me and knew another location that was hiring and would be a good fit she gave me a referral to them! I had the interview today, really short and sweet but went well and i dont have to do another makeup demo! i should know on Friday if i get the job or not. keep you guys posted!
