MAC is making musicians your favorite makeup artists! After recently announcing a huge multi-collection collaboration with Rihanna, the brand has just announced its newest collaborator, Paramore’s Hayley Williams.
People had the exclusive first look at the four-piece collection that mimics her signature hair hue, vibrant orange! The color was a no-brainer as it was the first shade of eye shadow she snapped up from the brand and has been in love ever since. “I went to a [store] and picked up orange eye shadow from MAC, that was the beginning of the end,” she told the glossy. “It’s been key in making me feel like I have an onstage personality. Orange was it for me from picking up the eye shadow when I was 17. It’s not a natural color, but when I wear it , people say ‘it looks normal on you!’”
The collection itself has a tart, citrusy flair with a tangerine lipstick, grapefruit eye shadow, mandarin beauty powder, and orangesicle nail lacquer. For those still intimidated by the shade (even after it was Pantone's Color of the Year in 2012), Williams advised girls to start with the shadow and work your way up. “The Daydreaming shadow is soft and pretty when you don’t keep layering it,” she explained. “I love colors like that you get two looks. The orange lipstick maybe isn’t for [every] girl. But it could be! The best thing about makeup is that it’s complete self expression, it art on your face.”
The Hay Williams collection is set to hit MACCosmetics.com exclusively on April 9th.
