Beauty brand M.A.C. is paying tribute to photography legend Helmut Newton with a limited-edition fall/winter 2016 makeup collection. This retro and refined line lands with a slightly provocative twist and is available to buy in stores and online at www.maccosmetics.com.

Known for his work as a fashion photographer — particularly for Vogue and Vanity Fair — as well as his female nudes, Helmut Newton photographed many powerful and sensual women, such as Grace Jones, Kate Moss, Catherine Deneuve and Monica Bellucci.

Helmut Newton’s work is now being celebrated in a makeup collection with a retro vibe, directly inspired by the elegance, glamour and sensuality of his photos. The range also nods to the erotic nature of certain nude portraits with passionate shades of red.

The resulting products channel retro inspirations, both in their design and in the selected shades, topped off with a slight hint of provocation. Naturally, the ultimate beauty look is still a satiny red lip with a smoky eye for full-on femme fatale glam.

The collection features an eyeshadow quad palette called Point ‘n’ Shoot with ivory, gray, satin brown and black shades, plus Upward Lash mascara in black, Eye Liner Liquid in black, three shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour and three “M.A.C Studio” nail polishes, inspired by Monte Carlo and Berlin, where Helmut Newton lived.

This limited-edition makeup collection is available in stores and online.
