It’s Fashion Week in New York and what better time to debut a new MAC makeup collection that is a celebration of the collaboration between MAC and Milk Studios (the venue where many of the fashion shows are held). MAC Cosmetics introduces M·A·C & Milk Makeup Collection – a selection of basic backstage essentials found in every makeup artist’s kit. These show staples are consistently relied upon by the MAC PRO Team to create the key fashion week beauty trends throughout the world.
“Radiant skin, smokey eyes and beige lips (try Twig) seem to be a part of the beauty trends every season. The M·A·C & Milk Collection are the iconic products that create these trends. No makeup artist can live without these products during Fashion Week,” says Gordon Espinet, Vice President of Global Makeup Artistry, M·A·C Cosmetics.
I’ve seen firsthand the backstage makeup process during Fashion Week and it’s impressive to see the M·A·C senior makeup artists at work. This tried-and-true collection has been road tested by makeup artists in the trenches. If you’re looking for ten of the “essential” M·A·C products to have on-hand, look no further.
The M·A·C & Milk Collection includes:
Strobe Cream: The ultimate quick fix for skin. This cream brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants, enhancing the effect of light on the skin. $33
Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: This luxurious face powder contains baked in minerals that provide a dimensional yet natural-matte finish. Perfect to set and fix foundation. One of my favorite M·A·C Products, it’s available in 15 shades. $32
Duo Fibre Face Brush #187: This large full circular brush made from a soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres can be used to blend face powders or pigments to create soft layers or add textures. This is a makeup tool that I use every single day; it’s absolutely indispensable. $42
The M·A·C & Milk Makeup Collection is available in department stores including Nordstrom and at maccosmetics.com.
Updated: Since the original publication of this post, these products are all now part of the permanent M·A·C line.
