M∙A∙C x Philip Treacy

MAC Philip Treacy

M∙A∙C x Philip Treacy represents a unique partnership – London’s leading couture hat designer collaborating with the world’s boldest makeup brand and the outcome is to die for!

Philip Treacy created three dazzling headpieces that accentuated different parts of the face, including the eyes, cheekbones, and lips. From there, M∙A∙C Cosmetics produced a makeup collection that complemented the milliner’s designs.



Beginning his millinery label from a basement workshop in Isabella Blow’s house, Philip Treacy’s fantastical creations have graced the runways of Givenchy, Chanel and Valentino and earned him an OBE in 2007. Handcrafted in London, Treacy himself sculpts the molds and forms that each individual hat is made from.

YSL Summer 2012 Makeup Look

Ladies Who Lunch

There are some beautiful things on their way from Yves Saint Laurent: The house’s new makeup summer collection which will be launching in Switzerland in May 2012
I love the earthy hues with the contrast of blue that inspired me to this look:

YSL Summer 2012


My favourite products for the eyes: The Pure Chromatics Eyeshadow Palette N°8 Sand (CHF 79.-) can be used dry and wet and looks gorgeous in combination with the Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof N°4 Blue Majorelle (CHF 50.-).

For your eyes only

Here you can see how I applied the eyeshadow palette. I used the three earthy hues dry on the lid and blended them well starting with the darker tone up to the lightest one. The olive shade was applied wet like an eyeliner. I finished off the look with lots of black mascara for the upper lashes and used the blue mascara for the lower lashes to open the eye beautifully.

YSL Bleu Majorelle

On my nails I am wearing the new La Lacque Couture in N°18 Bleu Majorelle (CHF 37.-).
The nail polish is part of the new La Lacque Couture La Vernithèque collection which will be launching in May 2012 in Switzerland.

Thirty new shades that offer high shine and easy application with a new brush. Choose from a colour palette of reds and  oranges, pinks and fuchsias, plums and purples, nudes and browns, and other groundbreaking shades.

LoL, Sandra
