Kristen Mcmenamy Stars in Reel Sexy Campaign for M.A.C Cosmetics
The legendary supermodel Kristen Mcmenamy is back in the spotlight as the face of M.A.C's Reel Sexy collection, shot by the renowned photographer Miles Aldridge. The campaign features Mcmenamy in a retro-inspired look, with bold colors and dramatic eyeliner that evoke the glamour of Hollywood's golden age.
The Reel Sexy collection includes four eye shadow duos, four lipsticks, four cremesheen glass, three nail lacquers, two blushes, and two eye kohls. The products range from soft pastels to vivid brights, with names like Dynamic Duo, Pink Popcorn, and Reel Sexy.
M.A.C's creative director James Gager said that the collection was inspired by the cinematic icons of the 50s and 60s, such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Brigitte Bardot. He added that Mcmenamy was the perfect choice to embody the Reel Sexy spirit, as she is \"a woman who is not afraid to express herself and her individuality\".
Mcmenamy, who rose to fame in the 90s as part of the grunge movement, said that she enjoyed working with Aldridge and M.A.C on the campaign. She said that she loves the Reel Sexy collection because it is \"fun, playful, and colorful\". She also revealed that her favorite product from the collection is the Reel Sexy lipstick, a light bright coral shade that she said \"makes me feel happy\".
The Reel Sexy collection will be available online and in stores from April 2023.
The Reel Sexy collection is not the only collaboration between M.A.C and Miles Aldridge. The photographer also created a series of portraits of M.A.C's makeup artists, showcasing their creativity and diversity. The portraits will be displayed in M.A.C stores and online, as part of the brand's Celebrate the Artist campaign.
Aldridge said that he was honored to work with M.A.C and its talented makeup artists. He said that he wanted to capture their personalities and styles, as well as their skills and artistry. He said that he used a variety of lighting and backgrounds to create different moods and atmospheres for each portrait.
M.A.C's global senior artist Nicole Thompson, who was one of the makeup artists featured in the portraits, said that she was thrilled to be part of the project. She said that she admires Aldridge's work and vision, and that she felt like a movie star during the shoot. She said that she used products from the Reel Sexy collection to create her look, which she described as \"a modern twist on a classic 60s vibe\".
The Reel Sexy collection is not only about makeup, but also about fashion and accessories. M.A.C has teamed up with some of the most influential designers and brands in the industry, such as Prada, Gucci, and Dior, to create exclusive items inspired by the Reel Sexy theme. These items include sunglasses, scarves, bags, shoes, and jewelry, all featuring vibrant colors and patterns that match the Reel Sexy products.
M.A.C's vice president of global marketing Karen Buglisi said that the Reel Sexy collection is a celebration of beauty, style, and creativity. She said that the collection is designed to appeal to women of all ages and backgrounds, who want to express themselves and have fun with makeup and fashion. She said that the collection is also a tribute to the iconic women who have inspired generations of M.A.C fans and artists.
The Reel Sexy collection will be launched with a series of events and promotions across the world. M.A.C will host parties, workshops, contests, and giveaways, where customers can experience the Reel Sexy products and accessories, meet the M.A.C makeup artists and celebrities, and win prizes and gifts. M.A.C will also launch a social media campaign, using the hashtag #ReelSexyMAC, where customers can share their Reel Sexy looks and stories. aa16f39245
