Hi, everyone! The sea of makeup collaborations is quite full at the moment, with brands pairing up with celebs and bloggers left and right. While some amazing products have been born from these collabs, the genre is a bit over-saturated at the moment. As such, I was happy to see that MAC was releasing a collection inspired by someone who's actually been a staple in the fashion and beauty industry for years, Helmut Newton! I've always admired his bold, sexy, empowering beauty shots so I knew this collection would be equally sultry and glamorous!
Here's what MAC has to say about the release:
"M∙A∙C Limited Edition celebrates the erotically charged and elegant work of legendary photographer, Helmut Newton. A regular contributor to Vogue and Vanity Fair, Newton is known for his precise, glamorous and empowering photography of women. This limited-edition color collection captures the photographer’s provocative, exquisite taste, dressing wine-stained lips in sultry rogue while darkening eyes in the black and white shades of his signature aesthetic. Nails are lacquered in colors inspired by Monte Carlo and Berlin, two of his homes. A selection of Newton’s most iconic photographs adorns the bespoke packaging – his work remains as distinctive and influential as ever".
