MAC McQueen

Alexander McQueens' MAC collection hits counters October 11th. This months ELLE magazine had a feature on it, but they didn't show very many actual product images.

This collection is very green and blue based and uses Liz Taylor's turn as Cleopatra as inspiration.

The Eye
"The look features a highly structured eye achieved with Kohl Power Eye Pencils, Paint Pots and Eye Shadows. Eye brows are drawn in Velvetone to create the stark handsome brow that frames the brightly pigmented lids and brow bone. Paint pots in colours created by Terry Barber and Charlotte Tilbury specifically for the AW 07 show range from Pharaoh a creamy yellow green, Otherworldly a mid-tone sea blue to Electro Sky an intense royal blue. Another dimension is added to the eye by layering eye shadows over the paint pots in matching shades designed specifically for this collection. Eyes are outlined with Kohl Power pencils in Jealous, Black Karat, and Feline. M·A·C 20 lashes reinforce the thickly lined eyes. “Alexander McQueen was very specific about the makeup direction and I translated his ideas of Egyptian, graphic, bold coloured makeup into a look that was strong yet hypnotic; which was very much in the spirit of the show,”said key makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury."

I am loving the pale sea green shadow with the nude lipstick shown in the one pic. I look forward to seeing them in person.

Light green eyeshadow and nude lips are one of my favorite looks to do, and this lip looks especially nice.
