Zac Posen's make-up line with MAC brings glamour to the masses
Zac Posen created a make-up line as he wanted to extend the glamour from his red carpet dresses.
The American style star is the designer of choice for many of Hollywood's A-list women, with stars like Amanda Seyfried, Eva Longoria and Coco Rocha often turning to Zac to dress them for big events.
But gorgeous gowns aren't enough for Zac, and that's what has led to a new beauty venture with MAC Cosmetics.
"We dress so many amazing, iconic women on the red carpet that I wanted to extend the glamour to a wider audience: the essentials to master a great smoky eye, a lush-coloured lip and an invisible powder which eliminates shine and makes you picture perfect at all times," he smiled to Britain's Stylist magazine.
Zac's 10-piece collection launches on MAC's website on 25 February (16), with prices starting from £16.50 ($23). Like with all of MAC's famous collaborations, Zac's offerings come with custom designed packaging. He's kept MAC's original black exterior, but embossed his name in striking gold lettering.
"My favourite would be the perfect red lipstick (in Dangerously Red)," he said of his top pick from the range. "It’s totally transformable and adds that fashion edge that pops. And whether you’re going on a red carpet or just taking a selfie, the invisible powder is pivotal."
For Zac, make-up is just as important as an outfit. However he doesn't think all women should conform to the same ideals when it comes to cosmetics.
"I think every woman, if they’re interested in beauty, should find their signature look. Beauty, just like fashion, is so individual," he pointed out. "And from what I’ve learnt over the years from celebrities and photo shoots, the secret is to blend well."
