The barriers between professional makeup artists and everyday consumers are coming down at MAC Cosmetics.
The Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.-owned brand premiered its first pro-flagship fusion store and third U.S. flagship Thursday at 45 Powell Street in San Francisco’s Union Square. The store, which has a sales floor of 1,340 square feet and a total space that covers 3,000 square feet, features MAC’s professional lineup of products along with the brand’s more customary ranges to cater to the thousands of makeup artists in the region and other customers curious about the high-technology products aimed at professionals.
