South Coast Plaza kicked off its first weekend celebrating makeup, hair and beauty with a MAC Cosmetics exhibit Friday that organizers said is unlike any other in the nation.
Posh Paradise marked the launch of South Coast Plaza Style, which highlights the shopping center's beauty boutiques, concepts and salons, said Debra Gunn Downing, the center's executive director of marketing.
At Jewel Court on Friday stood four display windows adorned in deep-colored leaves representing the fall and winter seasons.
Inside each window stood a model, covered with body paint that blended with the leaves.
"It's all about a fall fashion fantasy, a jungle of makeup," said Julie Wick, a MAC makeup trainer for the Orange County region.
Posh Paradise, which will be displayed all weekend, highlights this season's makeup colors and trends. It is also the only MAC exhibit of its kind.
MAC picked South Coast Plaza for the exhibit because it's a fashion hub, Wick said.
