MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall 2009 Collection As Seen By Illustrator Maira Kalman



We still chuckle (along with all of Manhattan) over the now-famous New Yorker cover illustration of “Newyorkistan.” Cheeky, witty, always amusing, Maira’s illustrations are cute and colourful, wonderfully child-like, playful…and sophisticated all at once. Technakohl Liners and Maira’s Magical thinking Eye Shadows are made for the MAC Artist with a sense of mischief and a deep desire to be defiantly different. Warm and eccentric at the same time, Maira’s faces are full of cock-eyed optimism, with the tiniest smidge of city-girl-snobbism…simply, scrumptiously, stupendously sublime!

MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall 2009 Collection As Seen By Photographer Marilyn Minter



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.

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!
