Mary McDonald Makes Too Faced’s Holiday Merry and Bright


While some beauty brands are hitting the runway and the photo studio for their holiday picks, Too Faced is looking a little closer to home…

… Well, your interiors to be exact. Too Faced has partnered with Million Dollar Decorators star Mary McDonald for its Joy to the Girls collection of four makeup palettes packaged in McDonald’s signature chevron print. The partnership sprung up as the decorator worked with the brand’s co-founder and creative director Jerrod Blandino. “This is a really unique collaboration because it started off as a personal relationship first,” he told Women’s Wear Daily. “[McDonald] has an amazing aesthetic. It’s modern, yet classic. She is ‘Too Faced’ in every way. With this collection we want people to be able to get a piece of this universe where Jerrod and Mary live. He designs faces and she designs places!”

Each palette comes with products to create a specific look. The Jingle All the Way version will hold 11 shadows, a blush, bronzer, and a limited-edition iPhone 5 case. The namesake palette includes 15 limited-edition shadows, Lashgasm Mascara, and a Glamour Guide with three looks; both are currently available at The Be Merry and Bright compact consists of six shadows, one bronzer, one blush, a luminizer, Lash Injection Mascara, and a how-to booklet, that will be available exclusively at Ulta. “If you’re a fashionista, you need to transform yourself wherever you go,” McDonald expalined. “We wanted to find what’s really fun and lively and would attract young women.”

A Few of My Favorite Things will contain 20 eye shadows, two blush shades, two bronzers, a Lip Injection Color Bomb, and a deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara, which became a favorite for the pair. “We built the palette from the ground up,” she said. “[During the holidays is] when you can go very decorative and it’s not seen as corny. For Christmas it’s so appropriate.”

We can’t wait to get up close and personal with this array of palettes when they hit shelves tomorrow October 1st for $25-$56.
