Post Holiday 2009: MAC Love Lace Collection…

I love a good smokey eye.  There is nothing like it for the holidays…and this look would be perfect at a New Year’s Eve soiree.  MAC has a few of what they like to call “Post Holiday” collections.  The first one I am highlighting is called Love Lace.  This salon-intimate collection is all about a dramatic, intense, smoky eye, with shadows that flash frosty grey to deep blue. Kohl Power is brought back for a limited time in favorite shades plus a new blackened marine blue. And naturally, 44 Lash adds the depth and desire. Lips stay pleasingly pale and Nail Lacquer in Light Affair adds a hint of danger. If ever there was a moment to do away with the winter doldrums and add some instant intrigue, this is it.
