MAC x Helmut Newton Makeup Collection

Published: 2016-10-04 by Marina Milojević in Makeup

MAC Cosmetics announces the launch of its very special, limited edition makeup collection that celebrates the erotically charged work of legendary photographer, Helmut Newton.

Helmut Newton, a regular contributor to Vogue and Vanity Fair, who will be remembered by his provocative black-and-white photographs, inspires the latest MAC color collection. This limited-edition range encapsulates the famous artist's provocative taste, and celebrates his empowering photography of women.

MAC's Photography by Helmut Newton Collection is available in select markets from October 27, and in stores November 3. All items of this artsy collection are delivered in a special Newton-inspired packaging featuring the famous photographer's legendary shots.

As M∙A∙C Cosmetics Senior Vice President/Creative Director, James Gager, explains: “I have always greatly admired Helmut Newton’s work – the precision and glamour of his images, as well as the strength and elegance of the women that he photographed. It is an honor to be able to create a makeup collection that captures his provocative vision in a M·A·C way.


Tiggy Maconochie of the Helmut Newton Estate adds: “M·A·C supports Helmut Newton’s desire to have his photographs seen, celebrated and enjoyed.  He liked to push the boundaries of what is acceptable while remaining chic and dynamic. Like Helmut Newton, M∙A∙C pushes boundaries in beauty, gender and beyond.  Both are simultaneously modern and classic as well as empowering.”
