As one of the beauty industry’s most ardent supports of fashion talent–both young and established–it was only a matter of time before M.A.C would create a collection of essential products found in every makeup artist’s kit used to create all the key beauty trends during fashion week. This February marks the second consecutive season M.A.C has collaborated with Milk Studios in NYC to host a hotbed of talent during New York Fashion Week, so consider M.A.C & Milk a fashionably late–albeit glorious–way to finally celebrate that collaborative spirit! “Radiant skin, smokey eyes and beige lips seem to be a part of the beauty trends every season. The M.A.C & Milk Collection are the iconic products that create these trends. No makeup artist can live without these products during fashion week,” says Gordon Espinet, vice president of global makeup artistry for M.A.C Cosmetics. Every facet of one’s daily beauty regimen, from skincare and eyes to mascara, face and lips, is included in the assortment. Fast Response eye cream? Check. Smolder Kohl pencil? Check. Zoom Lash mascara? Check. Fleshpot lipstick? Check. Even the essential beauty brush! What I love about the collection is that everything is neutral, well-balanced and suited for all shades of skin; there’s no brooding blood red or neon yellow to throw you off kilter. Think of it as your quintessential basic must-haves to creating any look. You don’t have to be at fashion week to look like you have: the M.A.C & Milk Collection is available for a limited time from February 2 to 22.
The collection ranges in price from $14.50 to $42, available at M.A.C stores and at www.maccosmetics.com
