Hey Fashion Fiends,
In recent beauty news, fashion icon, Daphne Guinness will be partnering up with MAC cosmetics to release a collection of palettes, pigments, lipsticks and more.
The collection seems to honor her larger than life style with a wide range of colors from white lipsticks to wine colored eye shadows.
Check out the rest of the collection and her inspiration after the jump…
“I was in the Beverly Hills Hotel — and let me tell you there’s always some mad project going on in my bedroom when I’m there, ha! I had parchment papers spread all over the floor and all sorts of different powders and watercolours that I was mixing together and my finished pieces were drying on the balcony. I was painting for so long on that floor. When I’m given a task, I take it really seriously. I start with the raw materials and mix them and all the while I imagine art references and try to consider the Old Masters and try to figure out how they mixed this colour or that colour. Then, when the pieces were done, I packed them all in my suitcase to show MAC.”
“I don’t like to copy anything and I really try to come up with something completely new. Of course, you have to work with things that are in your frame of reference, but I really aim to create a new colour or at least a new configuration of colours together. As Degas said, ‘You have to copy and recopy the masters,’ but you can only do that for so long and then you have to do your own thing. Otherwise you’re only going backwards and not forward. So I try to take my references from the past and bring them into the present and make them relevant again.”
The collection is scheduled to hit stores January 2, 2012.
