Our brows are excited to know that legendary model and actress, Brooke Shields, who was recently featured on our “Legendary” issue 7 cover, has agreed to work with MAC Cosmetics on their popular cosmetics collection suitably called, “Icon.” Following the steps of many of today’s leading pop icons (Rihanna, Lorde, even Barbie), the collection features 16 shades of eyeshadow, two blushes, and two lipsticks, making this the most extensive “Icon” palette MAC has ever done.
The collaboration came to Shields by chance: she was getting coffee after working-out, make-up-less, assuming she wouldn’t run into anyone. And who does she run into? James Gager, MAC’s senior vice president and creative director. When she started, she told WWD, “The minute [James] planted the seed, I went to work on my [inspiration] book. I was smearing lipsticks and making smudges of products, tearing out ideas. I brought it to the first meeting, and the surprising thing is that they cared.”
Shields was so excited that she ended up designing two collections. “One was this really fresh-faced, cleaner, daytime look and the other was much more vampy with a big focus on the eyes, and I’m both of these things,” she explained. “I like the natural part of myself, and I like the sexier side, too. James asked me what I liked best, and I just could not make up my mind between these two very diverse looks. So I thought, ‘Maybe they’ll like one better, or say this is the one for the market.’ It was like trying to pick a wedding dress.”
Stripping MAC of its classic black and white packaging, Shields’ collection will be presented in a softer gray and orange combo, which resonates with the new interior design of her West Village home. The collection goes on sale October 2 in U.S. stores and internationally later that month.
