There’s that famous close-up of Tom Ford’s belly button, part of the “Pathology of Glamour” that this artist renders with luminous, almost hallucinatory colour and painterly photo-realism… Erotic imagery that zooms in on a succulently wet, red lip, a dappled, sequined eye, or a silverized stiletto splashing in the mud. The Whitney Biennial Artist says she’s “Never met a model who actually thinks she’s beautiful,” and that observation goes a long way to explain how she connects to what MAC wants to say about all-inclusiveness we’re ALL beautiful sometimes. Pigments in Push the Edge and Copper and Gold Glitter have the power to make anyone feel like they WILL be seen and desired.
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!
Don’t you just lurrrve MAC pigments for the perfect amount of shimmer on the eyes?

Celebrities like Megan Fox and Kim Kardashian were all spotted with lighter locks at the beginning of the summer and now the latest celebs to go blonde are pop princess Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.
I personally liked Brit Brit blonde a LOT better but prefer Lindsay with darker hair. What do you ladies think?
