In the second piece of brilliant news today for fashionable Goths, Gareth Pugh is launching a makeup line! Yep, as you may have guessed, it’s dramatic brand M.A.C that the North East’s master of the geometric is collaborating with, on an extensive range of everything from purple lippy to angular eyelashes to a slick black PVC carry case to keep it all in. It might be dark, but grunge in ain’t; these are seriously GLAM pieces for serious beauty junkies.
The collection, described by MAC as ‘futuristic yet primal’ is made up of cream eye shadows in witchy shades, slick silver nail varnish and oh, how we swooned over those graphic shaped eyelashes – enough to get us dusting off our clubbing boots and hitting the town again. (Maybe). Basically we can’t believe that this particular pairing hasn’t happened before, and although he works with MAC for his catwalk looks and OF COURSE he’s no strangely to a dab of eyeliner himself, being a dyed in the wool Goth kid.
Apart from the fact that the two partners are absolutely PERFECT together (After all they MAC and Pugh have been collaborating together on his catwalk shows for years) perhaps it’s because Pugh has always kept himself pure in the sense that he’s very high end and never done a mass market range until now. (Much to our chagrin!) But since his dramatic looks for the Paris runway are often among the most interesting of each season, we’re thrilled that we can bag ourselves a spot of his futuristic magic for our nails and eyelashes, our only request is – can you do a range of CLOTHES for the high street too, please Mr Pugh? ? ? ?
