With three days left to 2013, MAC cosmetics showcases just how you can use their line to get a festive avant-garde look. The Asian calendar marks 2013 as the Year of the Snake, which is the primary inspiration behind the collection. The company is also of the belief that the snake sign speaks to that of reinvention. Fact is, who doesn’t want to remain vibrant in this ever-changing world?
