    I had the pleasure of meeting this fantastic man last night at a master class put on by Mac Cosmetics. He transformed himself in front of my eyes and I was left gob smacked. Amazing. I was lucky enough to have a quick chat with him afterwards and he has definitely left a lasting impression on me. WOW!
