Carine Roitfeld Is Launching A Moody Makeup Range With MAC Cosmetics!

MAC Cosmetics, Carine Roitfeld Team Up

We've already seen MAC Cosmetics team up with the colourful likes of Nicki Minaj, Beth Ditto, Iris Apfel and even Miss Piggy, but now the beauty brand has turned its attentions to queen of goth chic, Carine Roitfeld. How brills! According to Women's Wear Daily, the bona fide fashion hero has been secretly working on a limited edition colour cosmetics line that's due to land this Autumn.

Admittedly, La Roitfeld isn't the first lady that springs to mind when thinking of MAC's bright and bold beauty products so we're highly impressed to see the brand taking such an unexpected and super-high-fashion direction. And if the success of Gareth Pugh's sexy cool collection for the brand is anything to go by, it's sure to be a corker. What's more, the range will stay true to Carine's signature style, focusing on products that'll help us mere mortals nail that smoky eye, bold brow and nude lip look. 

As well as consulting on all aspects of the collection — including package design, product names and colour palettes — the former-French-Vogue-Editrix-turned-major-fashion-stylist-and-author appears in the collection’s ad campaign looking tres sultry (how does she find the time?). Shot by Mario Sorrenti, the first glimpse sees Carine nonchalantly wearing an 'ooh la la' noir negligee with a smattering of necklaces while her rock chick hair is sexily ruffled and her eyeliner is darker than ever. What glamour! We can't wait to bag that moody makeup look — now all we need is a Givenchy leather dress to match.
