M·A·C Limited Edition Helmut Newton


Each month, I could dedicate at least one post to M∙A∙C Cosmetics. Their collaborations get better and better. This one is definitely to die for as I am a huge fan of the late legendary photographer, Helmut Newton. Limited Edition celebrates the erotically charged and elegant work of this icon. A regular contributor to Vogue and Vanity Fair, Newton is known for his precise, glamorous and empowering photography of women.

This limited-edition color collection captures the photographer’s provocative, exquisite taste, dressing wine-stained lips in sultry rogue while darkening eyes in the black and white shades of his signature aesthetic. Nails are lacquered in colors inspired by Monte Carlo and Berlin, two of his homes. A selection of Newton’s most iconic photographs adorns the bespoke packaging – his work remains as distinctive and influential as ever.

Have fun exploring the new beauty must-haves:
