When Art & Beauty Meet: MAC and NARS Collections

There is nothing I love more than a beauty collection which was inspired, or even better, a collaboration, with an artist/photographer/someone from the world of culture. So I was obviously excited to see these new collections from MAC x Helmut Newton and NARS x Sarah Moon.

MAC release  so many collections all the time, and the one which celebrates the work of Helmut Netwon really stood out to me. I have actually quite a few of his photos saved on my Pintetest. This is a small edition with carefully chosen products which  capture the photographer’s work perfectly.

A palette of classic, neutral shades –  Point ‘N’ Shoot  (£25/$32),  Liquid Eye Liner (£16),  Upward Lash Mascara (£19).
