Meet Andy Travis. I was delighted to find that one of my coworkers worked for MAC! Of course, I wanted to take some time out & pick his brain. I wanted to know the ins & outs of MAC, as well as tips from a professional makeup artist. And you get to read my Q & A with him!What are your favorite MAC products to work with?
My favorite products are the loose pigments, eye primers, cream blushes, matte lipsticks, Face & Body foundation, and all of their brushes.

What do you find overrated at MAC?
The pigmented Lipglass. It’s uncomfortable to wear and it’s overpriced. Also, the Mineralized Collection overrated, which includes powders & foundation, because one can find similar things in a lower price range.

What are your favorite drugstore favorites?
Any mascara is pretty much the same, so I get them there at Duane Reade, for example. The applicator makes the biggest difference and not necessarily the formula itself. It doesn’t make sense to buy a really expensive mascara because you could use a drugstore mascara & get the same effect with a better applicator.What is a good mascara applicator?
One that is cross bristled, which catches onto the whole eyelash and coats the whole eyelash with mascara. It’s best to go to a professional makeup store and get a wands that works for you and your eyelashes so as to give whatever effect you want because you can dip them into different mascaras.
