Cosmetics brands didn't take any time off this summer, preferring to enroll major muscle to help create the arrays of colors to brighten fall. From legendary ready-to-wear houses to influencers and even red-hot singers, the season's makeup collaborations will bring a personal touch to your looks. Here are the three collections to watch for. – AFP Relaxnews
Karl Lagerfeld x L'Oreal Paris
Following Balmain and Isabel Marant, the cosmetics titan will be teaming up with the Karl Lagerfeld house to launch the season's most anticipated makeup range. While no further information has been divulged as to the products that will be part of the collection, we do know that the collaboration should have a very special resonance, as it was initiated by the couturier and photographer before his passing, on Feb 19.
"This line of makeup truly reflects the Karl Lagerfeld brand universe and what Karl loved in makeup – he often used eyeshadows as colours in his sketches," said Caroline Lebar, head of image and communication at Karl Lagerfeld, in a press release.
The collaboration will be unveiled on Sept 20, with a global launch is planned on Sept 27, at the height of Paris Fashion Week (Sept 23 - Oct 1).
Aya Nakamura x MAC Cosmetics
MAC Cosmetics continues its streak of collaboration with international personalities by teaming up with Frenchie du jour Aya Nakamura to create its next makeup collection. Once again, the Djadja singer and the cosmetics stalwart are keeping the mood of the collection – and products – under wraps. But, looking at the chanteuse's looks, we can predict a daring tornado of colours. Without specifying a release date, MAC has hinted at an early-fall launch.
Jackie Aina x Anastasia Beverly Hills
American beauty influencer Jackie Aina came up with a palette of 14 eyeshadows for the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand, in sparkling, metallic, and matte finishes. Aina, who has been advocating for makeup that can work with every complexion, has emphasised deeply pigmented shades to complement darker skin tones. Beauty addicts will love the sparkling orangey-red of "Wiggalese", the rosy pinks of "Supreme" and "Pinker", the respectively matte or sparkling purple of "Big Wig" and "Shookington", in addition to more neutral tones like "Credit", "Ginger", and "Edges."
The limited-edition palette is already available in the US, with a rollout to other markets just in time to glow through the fall.
