Zac Posen is no stranger to the old Hollywood aesthetic. Known for his red-carpet ready, glamorous ball gowns, Zac is now channeling all that the allure of bygone days into a new makeup line with MAC. We're waiting on the edge of seats, completely ready to channel our inner Marilyn Monroe.
According to Allure, this is MAC's biggest collaboration with a designer to date and Zac's first venture into the beauty world. But Zac is no stranger to the MAC brand; in 2001, the designer worked with the beauty world favorite for his first collection in 2001. Because beauty was so integral to his looks and the fashion world as a whole, Zac said it was only a matter of time before he dipped his toe into the makeup pool.
"I have always wanted to create a makeup line to complement my designs and my brand, and it was only natural to work with MAC to create my first-ever signature collection," he said. He added that he has learned a lot from MAC since starting his career 15 years ago and knows they will perfectly complement his pieces when they hit the runway.
As for what the line will feature, Zac said, "I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage."
Star wattage, indeed. When the line premieres in February 2016, expect all the essentials to a classic makeup routine. Naturally, that would include eyeliner that creates the perfect cat-eye, dark jewel-toned shadow, bright blush to accentuate cheekbones and brushes soft to the touch. Zac's favorite? A deep red lipstick, of course.
"It's the perfect encapsulation of both of our worlds, with something sophisticated and sexy for every woman out there," he said.
Well Zac, we're already on line outside of MAC, waiting.
