EXCLUSIVE: MAC Cosmetics x Proenza Schouler
Design duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are known for their signature laid-back look on the runway. In other words, a Proenza girl would never pile on the makeup to compliment her striated-wood platform heels or shag coat. She’d simply dab balm on her eyes and lips, or add a hint of blush to her cheeks if she felt the occasion warranted something slightly more “done,” and hit the downtown circuit looking cooler than ever.
Come April, however, the kings of no-makeup makeup are partnering with cosmetic giant MAC to create a limited-edition collection for spring that includes Ombre Face Powders, Lipsticks, Pro Longwear Eye Liners and Lip Pencils, Nail Lacquers, and a 129SE Powder Brush. While all the details haven’t been fully disclosed just yet, I’m expecting to see a lot of neutral shades (reflective of the label’s beauty DNA) punctuated by pops of vibrant color. All products will boast packaging inspired by a past collection, and, judging by the campaign image shot by Mario Sorrenti, I’m placing bets on Spring 2010‘s electric surf- and skater-inspired show.
