MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall 2009 Collection As Seen By Painter Richard Phillips

Andy Warhol did a cameo on The Love Boat in 1985…and in the same spirit, Richard Phillips! 1998 painting, Spectrum, made its debut on the scandalous Gossip Girl a sign of the times! Need we say more? Recycled and re-imagined ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s ads and images, and every colourful issue ever considered when pondering the question of “identity” is what Richard Phillips is all about. Highly technical, a refinement of precise, academic painting, his gold and beautiful portraits seem so relevant to everything MAC artistry is all about. A collection of Eyeshadow Quads, Lipsticks, Lipglass, and The Perfect Cheek Blush just leap off the canvas!
