MAC enlists funky designer Jeremy Scott to create a collection that mixes music with makeup
Jeremy Scott has transferred his unique design aesthetics into a makeup collaboration with MAC Cosmetics with a ’90s aesthetic. Inspired by music, the MAC Cosmetics x Jeremy Scott collection is a manic color for eyes, lips, and cheeks featuring three palettes in retro-themed packaging.
“I love how music can take a room and alter it. It makes me feel really cozy. It’s just kind of my house’s calling card. You could have a white T-shirt and jeans on but do this full face of makeup and it’s a totally different effect than a stripped-down look. I think it’s fascinating. I was just thinking about how many different skin tones there are and how many different types of people there are who love what I do and have such a range of beauty. I really wanted to be able to capture as many people’s personalities [as possible] at the same time,” said Scott.
The eye palette, dubbed “LoFi”, includes a range of 29 eyeshadows. Jeremy made sure to involve vibrant hues such as green, purple, white, blue and magenta. The palette also includes shades like brown, gray, and nude which you can use for everyday makeup. It is packed in a fun boombox that follows the theme of the collection.
“Future Emotion” is the tape cassette-shaped lip palette made of 9 bold lipstick colors including orange, red, fuchsia, deep brown, burgundy, vibrant purple, matte nude, pink, and dusty brown.
And the third palette is the cheek “Acoustica” palette, featuring a satin powder blush in pink, a matte bronzing powder, and an iridescent highlighter. The cheek products are packed in a fun CD-shaped container.
