Nautical stripes: They go with long, summer days like barbecue and beer. But leave it to MAC to convert them into makeup form. Just in time for the holiday weekend, the cosmetics giant has unveiled its new Hey, Sailor! collection, a roundup of bronzers, shimmering shadows, illuminators, nail lacquers, and pout perfectors packaged in adorable broad-stripe boxes to complement newly sun-kissed skin. Before we go on about how the entire range—its two varieties of Beach Body Oil included—is essential to any well-equipped beach tote, a disclaimer: We don’t wear makeup to the beach, ever. That said, the things we’re most excited about from the line are its Sun Tints, liquid SPF 20 lip balms in Abalone, a sheer hot pink sans sparkles; Sea Mist, a pearlescent nude; and Au Rose, a see-through coral with a hint of gold shimmer. It will be extra exciting when we produce the adorable navy and white tubes at the beach in Fort Tilden tomorrow, if in fact the weather gods have decided to stop toying with us. Fingers crossed.
