Selfies are about to get so much more made up.

MAC Cosmetics is opening its first MAC Makeup Studio at 825 Lexington Ave.

While single-service salons featuring services like manicures, blow-outs or eyebrow styling are highly popular among a certain sect of New Yorkers, the makeup salon has yet to fully expand in the city.

MAC  has been planning the salon for almost a year and a half, the New York Times reported Tuesday.

The salon will feature six chairs, with an additional two VIP seats behind an elite-sounding "swingy metal beaded curtain."

At MAC Makeup Studio, customers can book appointments for everyday makeup, special occasions looks and a private lesson in how to make your face selfie-ready.

A 90-minute full makeup lesson runs at $90, but a 30-minute tutorial in bold lips, smoky eyes or sculpted is only $30.

Beauty enthusiasts can also plan $50/person 90-minute parties for up to six people, including makeup lessons and application.

Lessons and makeup application can be booked in advance at

For a slightly cheaper lesson in looking good, MAC's Youtube channel posts 100% free to watch makeup tutorials.

Whichever service you choose, be sure to get a nice position in front of the shiny new mirrors. It's all about the selfies at this new beauty hub.

MAC Makeup Studio is scheduled to open July 15.
