Pretty Peek: MAC Carine Roitfeld Collection to Debut This Fall Friday 20 April, 2012
Fashion and beauty join forces, yet again: MAC Cosmetics announces a Carine Roitfeld collaboration with a limited edition line of cosmetics, set to launch in Fall 2012.
Former French Vogue editrix Carine Roitfeld has been a busy lady lately. A preview of her new magazine, named CR Fashion Book (her initials, naturally), hit the blogosphere earlier this month, and now MAC Cosmetics announces that fashion’s hottest name is partnering with the brand on a limited edition line of cosmetics, set to launch in Fall 2012.
Carine has long been a creative collaborator with fashion designers, often acting as consult and consort, and for the MAC Carine Roitfeld Collection, she dipped into all creative aspects, including package design, product names and color palettes. Naturally, the 20-piece collection focuses on Carine’s special, oft-talked about special brand of sexy: smoldering eyes and bold brows paired with a nude lip. Additionally, a “beauty mark” stencil, Good Luck Star, will bow with the line, and can be seen on Carine in the Mario Sorrenti-lensed beauty image (above).
I’m a fan of Carine’s. She’s a no-nonsense editor—the type of mentor I’d die to have. She’s been very outspoken about not bowing to outside forces when creating editorial, never jumped on the celebrity-as-cover-model bandwagon that plagues so many women’s interest magazines and crafted some of the most amazing—and controversial—editorial images the industry has seen. And how can you not love someone who epitomizes fashion, yet says, “I find that some people in fashion are so blasé. Fashion has to be fun.” Love. Her.
MAC promises more details nearer to the launch date. In the meantime: Get your lids and brows ready for a little Carine magic!
