Luz Maria Gets to Shine
Leave it to MAC to makeover the beauty game. For their latest campaign, MAC flew six lucky winners to New York and gave them a makeover. Luzmaria Vargas, from Anaheim, California, is one of the six that will be featured in this fall’s campaign #MACnificentMe….and she is ecstatic. “When my kids have their kids, I’m gonna be like ‘Hey, I was a model for MAC!,'” says Vargas.
This moment in front of the camera changes everything for her. Because of her weight, Vargas has been asked to step out of pictures and take them instead. “It hurts because some people think just because you’re overweight, you don’t have feelings,” Vargas says through tears. “I don’t have a gorgeous body. I mean, I don’t think I’m beautiful. But look at where I’m at. I didn’t need a gorgeous body, it’s really the inside that counted…I’m here.”
What the video above to see her transformation.
