“Like Helmut Newton, M∙A∙C pushes boundaries in beauty, gender and beyond. Both are simultaneously modern and classic as well as empowering,” noted Worldwide Agent of the Helmut Newton Estate, Tiggy Maconochie.
This limited-edition color collection captures the photographer’s provocative, exquisite taste, dressing wine-stained lips in sultry rogue while darkening eyes in the black and white shades of his signature aesthetic. Nails are lacquered in colors inspired by Monte Carlo and Berlin, two of his homes. A selection of Newton’s most iconic photographs adorns the bespoke packaging – his work remains as distinctive and influential as ever.
“I have always greatly admired Helmut Newton’s work – the precision and glamour of his images, as well as the strength and elegance of the women that he photographed. It is an honour to be able to create a makeup collection that captures his provocative vision in a M·A·C way,” said M∙A∙C Cosmetics Senior Vice President/Creative Director James Gager.
The collection launches online on Oct. 27 and will be available in-store Nov. 3 through Dec. 15. In other brand news, the highly-anticipated Selena range rolls out this week.
