MAC Make-up Art Cosmetics

This season MAC celebrates the idea of the Artist in every shade and stripe…makeup as art form. MAC has selected three individuals who exemplify this idea through both the subjects they choose, and the wildly individual styles and colours used to convey them. Bold, heroic, big; giggly, playful, clever; dramatic, original, abstract: Fall ’09 as seen by Richard Phillips, Maira Kalman, and Marilyn Minter. Be inspired.

MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics will be available for a limited time starting August 20, 2009.

FALL ’09 AS SEEN BY RICHARD PHILLIPS, PAINTER: Using the expert skills of a photo-retoucher, Richard subjected his own painting to a MAC makeover with the new eye shadows, blushes and lipsticks.

FALL ’09 AS SEEN BY MARILYN MINTER, PHOTOGRAPHER: Minter’s erotic imagery zooms in on a succulently wet, red lip, a dappled, sequined eye, or a silverized stiletto splashing in the mud. Pigments in Push the Edge and Copper or Gold Glitter have the power to make anyone feel like they WILL be seen – and desired. That gift for sparkle is one reason Minter was a natural for the high-key glitter pigments in Make-Up.
