Mac’s Tribal Makeup Party

silvia-njoki-mac-tribal-makeup-party7 (1)A couple of weeks ago, I attended a MAC makeup party at their Garden City Mall store. The intimate party was tribal themed and most of the guests got tribal-inspired makeup. Ideally, I should have worn Kikuyu regalia and had my face smeared with red ochre and white face paint to resemble that of my tribe.

I do not normally break dress codes, In fact, I knew of a place I could get the traditional Kikuyu outfits, but I never made it in time; and I am glad I did because no one was traditionally clad anyway. So I settled for this outfit gifted to me by one of my fave Tanzanian designers Eskado Bird close to 5 years ago and is still one of my best pieces. I love the cowl back for a night out, and for an everyday look I pair it with blue or black jeans.

I got my facebeat from start to finish by my good friend Debby, who has done my makeup here and here.
And after a fun mingling, wine and bitings session, we decided to hit the club in our tribal makeup – I, Debby and another makeup artist. Totally unplanned, and we sure did turn heads, although I felt like I had to explain to at least 50 people that night in the bar why we had such ‘fancy’ make up on. Save for that, we had so much fun!
