We always look forward to what exciting new collaborations beauty brand MAC are bringing out and find it impossible to choose a favourite – Beth Ditto’s range was mind-blowing although remember that cute Hello Kitty one? They're always pretty ace so when news arrived in April that none other than Carine Roitfeld is creating a collection for the beauty brand, we couldn't stop smiling. Seriously, what could be better than the queen of the smoky eye treating us to products that'll nail that goth chic look?
Today, a video has arrived that gives us a sneak preview of what to expecrt. Unsurprisingly, the range covers several Carine essentials including dark shades, neutral powders and everyday eyeliners. The brightest shade of them all comes in the form of a vampish nail varnish called Underfire Red which is nothing but Parisian perfection.

Plus, there are two full ‘Face Kits’ with colours ranging from soft biscuit tones all the way through to darker browns. Oh, and there are brushes too! Another favourite of ours is the set of star stencils for making tiny ‘good luck’ stars on your face as beauty marks, just like the one Carine models in the video. Oh Ms Roitfeld, you really do spoil us!
MAC has even managed to dish the dirt on a few of Lady Roitfeld’s beauty secrets. Firstly, it’s okay to sleep with your mascara on, which is why she works the tired-but-sexy look so well. Secondly, apply black colour to your eyes with your fingers not a pencil. C’est tres naturellement!
So get in line girls - the collection is set to his UK stores on the 6th September and will no doubt be an instant sell-out. And keep a look out for Grazia's huuuge Fashion Issue, out on 18th September in which Carine talks exclusively to our very own Polly Vernon about the brand new collection.
