This summer will be all about dark, vampy lipstick: Lorde is launching a makeup collab with M.A.C Cosmetics
We didn’t really need another reason to be excited for summer, but M.A.C has just upped the ante. The global cosmetics brand announced yesterday that a collaboration with our latest beauty crush, Lorde, is forthcoming. Cue major squeals of excitement.
Lorde, a longtime fan of M.A.C products, has worked directly with the brand for over a year now, with senior Artist Amber D having created some of her most eye-catching looks. Remember her stunningly vampy look for the 2014 Grammy Awards? Or how about her black lipstick from the Brit Awards? Amber D and M.A.C were behind both. Lorde has proven that bold makeup isn’t exclusively synonymous with bright red lipstick or a smoky eye—and to the same effect, she’s proved that a dramatic dark lip is no longer reserved for the high school goth. It is now perfectly suitable for a formal event like, oh you know, a major awards show.
While details around the collection are very limited, it will be based around Lorde’s tour look—as seen in the above face chart. So it’s safe to say that there will probably be a bold lipstick or two and perhaps a palette of nude eyeshadows. Maybe even a “Royals” blue eyeliner? (Sorry, we couldn’t resist!) No matter what the final products prove to be, we’re such it’ll be fierce and totally covetable. The countdown to attainable goth-glam is on.
