Beauty by numbers: MTV EMAs 2012

By  November 12, 2012

MTV EMA's 2012, MAC Cosmetics, makeup, backstage,

Aside from rail-after-rail of spangly stage costumes, hundreds of pairs of shoes and we’re guessing truck loads of accessories that are hauled in for the MTV EMAs, there’s also the matter of beauty. Supported this year by MAC Cosmetics – a favourite of celebs, editors and the stars alike, – behind the scenes at this year’s stellar awards ceremony beauty was in full swing.


Working alongside Debbie Dannell, the MAC PRO team made over more than sixty dancers and performances. But what is needed to make this many showstopping looks? The answer:

150 hours of backstage makeup action

1,000 MAC Haute & Naughty Mascaras

380 pairs of MAC False Eye Lashes

72 MAC Blot Powders

We’re a little dizzy just thinking about it! Go team MAC!
