MAC’s Cruella collection offers makeup inspired by the diabolical Disney villain.
Telling the back story of one the most iconic cinematic villains, Disney‚Äôs new film Cruella is set to be one of the biggest releases of the season.
Emma Stone stars as Cruella de Vil, the fashionable yet diabolical canine foe with a penchant for monochrome in the live-action origin story, intended as a prequel to 101 Dalmatians.
The new film extends Cruella’s favour for glamorous, vampy and dramatic get ups, complete with a two-toned coiffure and precisely -applied makeup to match.
Long acquainted with limited-edition collections that play off some of Disney‚Äôs most well known characters (collections have previously celebrated Aladdin, Maleficent and Cinderella)¬† MAC Cosmetics has seized on the opportunity to create a spectacular makeup collection in tribute.
Brilliantly bold textures and colours that can be worn with dramatic flair or just a touch of the collection of course comes encased in striking black and white packaging.¬†
Along with the obvious nods to the film’s themes and its setting in punk-rock era London, the collection plays on some of its subculture roots, MAC Director of Makeup Artistry, Terry Barber explained in a statement.¬†
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs high glam with plenty of attitude, brought to a new generation,‚ÄĚ says Barber.
‚ÄúWith there being such a huge trend for recycling the more niche counterculture moments of previous decades, this collection feels like MAC returning to a celebration of the kind of DIY styling and brave transformation that originally made it such a maverick brand.‚ÄĚ
The collection includes eight different products, an eyeshadow palette, three matte lipsticks, four liquid lipsticks (all of which come in different shades of red), a dual-ended eyeliner, lashes, a face brush and an eye brush and a blush duo.
The highlight is undoubtedly the ‚ÄėCruella T Be Kind‚ÄĚ eye palette held together with magnets and detaches into four two-pan mini palettes for on-the-go use.¬†
The brushes with black-and white bristles are also undoubtedly genius, a fun nod to Cruella‚Äôs famous ‚Äėdo.¬†
MAC‚Äôs Cruella collection is available from May 13 and Cruella is in cinemas from May 27.¬†
