For starters, his real name isn’t even Mickey!
Many of you may not recognize his face but I’m pretty sure all of you will recognize his work. Think Karisma Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit in Dil To Pagal Hai, Preity Zinta in Kal Ho Na Ho, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kajol in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and countless magazine covers and editorials – Mickey Contractor is the man responsible for a long list of Bollywood celebrities looking as glamorous as they do.
This week, Mickey Contractor launched his second collection with MAC, a brand he has been associated with ever since they first came to town.
Sure, you know Mickey does makeup, but did you know that his name is actually Mehernosh Contractor and he first started out wanting to do hair? A coincidental run-in with legendary actress Helen, where she advised him to assist a makeup artist, led him to where he is today.
It was on a trip to Canada where he was working on Kajol for a film when he discovered MAC and was smitten by what he saw inside. Three lipsticks was all he could afford, but that’s all you need when you’re in the hands of the likes of Contractor.
With some legendary work behind him, making Mickey Contractor MAC’s Director Of Makeup Artistry in India was a no-brainer!
All the products in his collection are dedicated to Indian skin. This way you don’t need to worry about them suiting your face.
The products are now available in store as well as on Nykaa.com and these have got to be some of our ultimate favorites.
