Min Liu for M·A·C

Chinese fashion designer Min Liu brings her personal twist on Chinese traditionalism to a mythically charged M·A·C collection. Meditating on the creation and rejuvenation of life, it features bold reds, deep peony pinks and misty metallics, capturing the flow of energy that connects mountains, oceans – and all of us.

This makeup collaboration is nearly otherworldly beautiful. The artwork alone is as amazing as nearly any other one that M·A·C Cosmetics has produced.
