ALEXANDER MCQUEEN FOR MAC COSMETICS

View Additional Product Photos

MAC for McQueen is the culmination of the collaboration between celebrated designer Alexander McQueen, leading makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, and MAC Cosmetics for the Alexander McQueen Autumn Winter 2007 show. The collection includes 16 products, 12 hand blended specifically for the AW 07 McQueen show by Terry Barber, MAC Cosmetics Director of Makeup Artistry and lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury just days before the show. The classic MAC Cosmetics packaging is stamped with the Alexander McQueen logo, as if plucked straight from the makeup artists table backstage. When we embarked on the packaging, I wanted to have the sense that these are really just imprints by Alexander McQueen, fresh, hot off the runway. They are meant to be direct from the runway and feeling on trend, says James Gager, Senior Vice President/Creative Director for MAC Cosmetics.

Since 1996 MAC Cosmetics has worked with Alexander McQueen backstage by providing makeup and artistry support. “The makeup for a show plays up certain elements of the clothing, changes the overall feeling, and mood. I work with the key artist, Charlotte in this case, to take the makeup in a certain direction, and discuss my original inspiration for the collection as well as the mood, theme, and focus for the show. This time inspiration was derived from Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 film Cleopatra. The Egyptian influence plays up a very feminine sexual strength that was present in my inspiration for the collection, says Alexander McQueen. This marks the first time Alexander McQueen has partnered
with a cosmetics company.
