Dark 30's Glamour || Halloween with Mac Cosmetics

Happy Halloween!  I'm not one for dressing in costumes much (disappointing, I know) but I do love Halloween.  So, I always take the opportunity to stretch my creativity a bit and do something unusual, imaginative, and a little on the spooky side....  This year, I partnered with Mac Cosmetics to share a limited edition collection, inspired by the sensual imagery of iconic photographer Helmut Newton.  The dark glamour of this line created a beautiful palette for the somewhat haunting 30's-inspired aesthetic I envisioned.

Mac has always been my #1 go-to makeup brand, and I am completely wowed by this collection, especially the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours.  The feeling is like painting satin onto my lips, and the finish is a deep, non-bleeding, rouged lip stain that lasts!   I love every single colour, but today's look was achieved with "Self Portrait."  On my nails, is the matching oxblood red Studio Nail Lacquer in Berlin.   Complete makeup details are below... wishing you a glamorous and peculiar holiday!

  2. This is just so stunning, I love a moody 1930s look like this. I'm looking for a 1930s inspired lipstick at present, so I will have to check out the one you used here.
