When creating my makeup collection with MAC I wanted it to be unexpected – creating something truly beautiful, very sophisticated, and incredibly chic but of course – with an underlying edge of darkness and attitude. With a collection that goes from strong, deep and mysterious to light, fragile, and ethereal, I think we’ve created a truly versatile collection that hopefully you’ll be inspired by and want to wear.-Gareth Pugh
MAC Teams up with London-based design Gareth Pugh for their latest collaboration releasing in November. Gareth Pugh for MAC delivers a futuristic yet primal shades in custom geometric packaging gives this collection an edge.
Take a look!
To think Gareth Pugh is to think beautifully distorted, sculptural, otherworldly proportions…avant-garde mash ups of materials (from PVC and Perspex, latex to leather, mink to metal, Gareth reworks them all into breathtakingly original clothes)…an extreme attitude….
In short, no one could accuse Gareth of being conventional.
Since the same can be said of M·A·C – never shy of pushing a few boundaries – it makes sense that we’ve teamed with London’s most notoriously cutting edge designer to create a limited edition line-up of makeup and accessories. Of course, they’re every bit as unexpectedly sophisticated and big on twisted-chic as you might imagine. Thought a beauty line by Gareth would be all black and white?
Cue heavyweight geometric packaging encasing some seriously chic standouts: a duo-chromatic nail polish that flashes from emerald to amethyst. A compact Beauty Powder that turns all skin-tones a sophisticated matte. Lipglasses that go from super-subtle (worn alone) to
statement-making when layered over Lipstick. Lashes that redefine the shape of what a fake lash could, or should, be…“They’re about contradiction and the struggle between lightness and darkness,” says Gareth of how he creates his inspired collections. So too his debut approach to makeup. Every piece is unique, experimental, precious and intriguing (just like Gareth’s designs)…and ready to be played to your lighter (more ethereally natural) or darker (sinisterly sophisticated) side.
