Going Gaga For MAC

MAC’s spring campaign for Viva Glam is hella tame considering it stars two professional wackadoodles, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. But you know what? The tame look suits them both. Sorta. [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

MAC Gets Beachy With Lilly Pulitzer

Just like fusion food, collaborations are (almost) always a good thing. Why not mix two brilliant things together to end up with an even more amazing product? The latest: Lilly Pulitzer has teamed up with MAC cosmetics to create a line of polishes, glosses, and shadows in typical bright, Hamptons-esque colors. Starting Jan. 7, you can pick up the cosmetics, which range from $12-32, at any MAC store. The makeup line is kind of a refreshing look in contrast to the dark vampy looks we’ve been seeing lately for fall/winter. And their timing really is perfect, given turquoise is the new Pantone color for 2010. [New York] Keep reading »

The Ultimate In Halloween Face Masks

So, I’m late to this train, but apparently, every year, MAC Cosmetics asks their artists from around the world to submit their fantasy Halloween makeup looks that can be recreated for you and me. (Sort of a great way to put in minimal effort on the Halloween front—they paint your face and you throw on those randy cat ears you’ve still got kicking around from last year. An instant getup!) Check out a video on how they put together the makeup sheets, like the one above, into actual faces, on real-live people—after the jump! Keep reading »

MAC Gets Back To Black

The webs have been buzzing over MAC‘s much-anticipated new all-black collection, Style Black, for awhile now. We’re excited to report it finally launched today! We are not just talking about eyeliner here, we’re talking black lipstick, baby. Now, we’ve all decided that the latter is one helluva tricky trend, but today we’ve got options. The line includes three Glimmerglass glosses that make black lips a little more wearable: There’s Blackfire Sheer black with berry-ish pearl; Bling Black Sheer, which is translucent black with a gold glimmer; and, of course, Blackware Creamy, which is a true black for the truly brave. Either you like to roll goth-style or you don’t, but we definitely plan on snapping up a couple of the limited editions. Check out the whole collection here. Keep reading »

Baby Phat Gets All Exotic With Beauty Cues From Morocco

The beauty look of the models at the Baby Phat fashion show captured the Moroccan essence of the collection. True to Baby Phat form, the sex-factor was also a huge focus. But I wonder how the beauty team was able to get anything done because the teensy-tiny hair and makeup area was shear pandemonium. Well, maybe it was more like an ordered chaos with hair and makeup brushes going in every direction while flashbulbs went off every second. I had to sneak behind curtains and stand on a chair in four-inch heels to get my own shots. But I couldn’t slink my way into the crowd that mobbed Kim Kardashian when she appeared. Sadly, my photo of her isn’t fit to publish. Music by Jay-Z blasting from unseen speakers helped keep the mood festively frenzied. PS. Where the you-know-what was Kimora? Luckily, I was able to score some cool beauty secrets. Keep reading for how you can get a look that oozes opulence and sex appeal. Keep reading »

How To Get Ridiculously Perfect-Looking Skin

I’m pretty dang obsessed with Rad Hourani for making lots of hard-edged, androgynous black clothes that look good on girls and boys. Yesterday, the show did not disappoint, but what I’m really here to talk about is how pitch-perfect the makeup was. The obvious go-to would be lots of dark liner or purple-stained lips but MAC makeup artist Hung Vanngo had a fresh idea — to contrast the rock star zippers and gorgeous metallic accents with the dewiest, most luminescent skin I’ve ever seen up close. Hung told me he wanted the skin to look healthy and here is his secret weapon: MAC Strobe Cream. It’s loaded with green tea and other antioxidants to perk up dull skin and contains all kinds of iridescent particles that reflect the light in a way that’s glowy — as opposed to Paris Hilton glittery (yuck) — and blinds anyone gazing upon your beautiful mug to any and all imperfections. In short, it’s the easiest way to fake perfect skin ever. Just use it as a primer, dab a bit of concealer around your nose and any problem areas, and you’re done. That’s it. Now get outta here.
