Brooke Shields, MAC Cosmetics, Make-up, Model, Mum, Collaboration

Proud mum, television and movie actress, published author and former supermodel, Brooke Shields resonates the modern busy women to a tee, but it doesn’t stop there, Shields will release a make-up collection with cosmetic powerhouse MAC in October of this year. The pieces will be part of the ‘Iconic’ range consisting of fifteen items, with the largest celebrity shadow-palette MAC has ever produced.

There was no doubt Brooke Shields would make sure eyes and brows would be a big part of her collection and wanted to be certain her pieces could transfer from day to night easily:

“I could not decide between two different looks: One was a very fresh approach, and one was a much richer, sexier, moodier look. I said to M.A.C., ‘I had a hard time narrowing it down and couldn’t pick one or the other; you have to tell me what’s appropriate.’ I’ve always had that duality—the way I lived in the entertainment industry and went to school. I’ve always been operating in two worlds. M.A.C. said, ‘Well, why don’t we do both?’ It was amazing.”

This “serendipitous” relationship saw Shields having a significant input into the formation of the collection, after a 34 year career in the industry centered around beauty it seems only fitting this collaboration will be a creative success, “I’m so used to having my make-up done by someone else – this was really my first time to delve in personally, rather than it being a mask that’s put on for a certain photo shoot. And so many times you get asked to ‘create’ something but it ends up being ‘put your face on this,'” she told WWD.

The line is said to profit five million dollars, and to think the make-up product contract was first mentioned when Shields was fresh faced, grabbing a latte after her yoga class and bumped into a friend who happened to be with MAC Vice President James Gager at the time. After that initial coffee, and a few more meetings the collaboration was a done deal.

We love this all-American girl and can’t wait until October when we can finally perfect those famous Brooke Shield eyebrows.
