Fashion Week is upon us, which means endless shows, late night champagne-fueled parties, ruthless cab maneuvering, and plenty of miles on your six-inch heels. This season, it also means the launch of the second-ever exclusive M.A.C. and Milk Cosmetics Collection — a selection of backstage essentials found in every makeup artist’s kit. The limited collection, which is sold entirely online, features show staples that are consistently relied upon by the M.A.C PRO Team to create key fashion week beauty trends throughout the world.
According to Gordon Espinet, the Vice President of Global Makeup Artistry, M.A.C. Cosmetics, “Radiant skin, smoky eyes and beige lips seem to be a part of the beauty trends every season. The M.A.C. and Milk Collection are the iconic products that create these trends. No makeup artist can live without these products during Fashion Week.”

For his part, Milk Studios founder and Creative Director Mazdack Rassi is excited about the joint venture, saying, “We’re extremely proud to be working with M.A.C. Cosmetics on this exclusive makeup collection, which further extends the creative synergy between the two companies. M.A.C. and Milk is a makeup collection inspired by the people we work with; photographers, stylists, and editors — it’s fashion’s choice of beauty.”
The line includes face and body foundation, fast-response eye cream, Fix+ (a skin spritz made of a blend of green tea, chamomile and cucumber), Zoom Lash mascara, and Mineralize Skinfinish Natural — among other treats.
In addition to the collection’s launch, M.A.C. and Milk will be hosting veteran and emerging designers’ runway shows, presentations, and special events during the New York Fall/Winter 2010 fashion week, from February 11- February 18.
