M.A.C. has teamed up with Pedro Lourenco to create some gorgeous makeup that reminds me of Old Hollywood. For the uninitiated, Pedro Lourenco is a young (only 23!) Brazilian designer who began designing clothes at age 12 and staging fashion shows at his parents’ house in his teens. When I was 12, I still watched The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s worth mentioning that Lourenco’s parents are themselves well-known fashion designers in Brazil.
Let’s get down to business. How gorgeous is this eye shadow quad? I have been drooling over it since M.A.C. sent me the press materials a few weeks ago.
If I can’t somehow acquire this quad, I will not be happy. And when Mami’s not happy, nobody’s happy. And how great would those shadows look with the lipstick in True Red, a bright coral?
I also love the Cream Color Base in Hush, a soft peach, for adding some icy shimmer to eyes and cheeks.
Pairing bold lip colors with soft neutrals for eyes and cheeks is reminiscent of the way classic screen goddesses such as Rita Hayworth and Ava Gardner wore their makeup.
M.A.C. Pedro Lourenco is currently available online and will be available in stores from June 5 through July 3.
