Last night, I attended the MAC Pro Bridal Makeup Class by MAC’s very own Senior Artist John Stapleton. John has been in the industry for 15 years and has worked in Fashion Week, theater, film, concerts and with celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Kelly Osborne.

Finally saw Burlesque on Friday and totally LOVED the hair and makeup on Ali Rose, played by Christina Aguilera! So here are a few breakdowns and face charts of some of my favorite looks by Christina’s makeup artist, Kristofer Buckle.
