Kathrin Jokubonis, M.A.C’s training manager, provided a four-hour session including valuable insider tips about primers, concealers, foundations and the right contour effects for mature skin. “Our products were originally designed for photo shootings.

Not only our Festival Ball debutantes are styled by professionals – you too can entrust your looks to the teams of Coiffeure Sturmayr and MAC Cosmetics, available at our exclusive Beauty Boudoir at the Haus für Mozart.
