Before she hit the front row at the designers’ show yesterday, Ireland Baldwin (daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin) spent some time in the makeup chair, trying on the full look minus the punchy red lip, and wound up in the middle of the dynamic duo themselves. Here, her hashtag-filled report:

Aren’t we looking gorgeous together?!? #DeanCaten #DanCaten #Dsquared²
While we’re always fans of a loud mouth on a runway—especially one filled with minidresses and retro-inspired maillots—Baldwin brings this poolside goddess look down-to-earth with a nude lip and slightly bumped-up hair. We think she’ll fit right in at the glamorous tiki bar dreamed up by Dean and Dan Caten (ahem…when the 17-year-old is of legal drinking age, of course).
“It’s all about that uncontrived, contrived look right now,” said Dean Caten, referencing the beauty concept from Dsquared²’s Fall show. Now, MAC Cosmetics has reproduced that seemingly paradoxical style in a limited-edition collection. Keeping in line with the design duo’s special brand of kitschy cool, Caten wanted the same for his cosmetics as his clothes. As he eloquently puts it, “That rich-bitch elegance with a cool factor.” The resulting ten-piece line that he conceived with brother Dan and MAC’s vice president of makeup, Gordon Espinet, is a tribute to this aesthetic and comprises two Lipstick shades, a fuchsia Lip Conditioner, two different Sculpt and Shape two-tone powders, and three Greasepaint sticks in black, violet, and blue. It marks a first for the Canadian label, and a little something novel for makeup mavens the world over. In addition to the aforementioned offerings, MAC has also added a few of its very coveted, very hard-to-obtain Pro products to round out the range. Its clear, multipurpose Gloss Texture, rich black Kohl Power Pencil in Feline and Lip Erase—the concealer-like product that almost all makeup artists use to take down lips for a matte, nude finish—can now be yours, while supplies last, of course. The Dsquared² for MAC collab hits shelves today and is only available for a month-long engagement.
