Art by Richard Phillips

I like it when cosmetics business accept the contemporary art scene like MAC has with fall’s cosmetics Art Cosmetics collection (arriving Aug. 20).


It’s something MAC has done before — hitching their thematic wagon to an recognized or up-and-coming artist — as well as it always seems like such a fantastic idea to me. Isn’t makeup, after all, just one of numerous develops of art?

For past MAC autumn collections like Cult of Cherry as well as Smoke Signals, smokey eyes as well as dark lips took center stage. The color palettes differed, however both collections still fell along what I think about conventional autumn makeup lines, with the addition of MAC’s much-loved theatrical flair!

With the large cosmetics Art Cosmetics collection, however, MAC produced three totally different sets of products (as far as I can tell), each set developed by a different artist.
