MAC Gets Artsy With Marilyn Minter This Fall

MAC has long been known for its creativity, and starting Aug. 20, the line between fine artist and makeup artist will be blurred with the release of three limited-edition collections by three notable artists. Among those featured is photographer Marilyn Minter, known for her extreme closeups, love of sparkle, and knack for highlighting the imperfect features that make us human. Her collaboration with the makeup line is somewhat erotic, complete with sequined-eyed glistening touches, using the brand's glitter pigments for effect.
"I work with a professional makeup artist named Rosina Harris and she applied the makeup perfectly," said Minter. "Then I went in and messed it up – sprayed it with water and glycerin," said Minter. "I like things to be gritty. Retouched models don't look human. Every place I work commercially they airbrush everything. MAC doesn't do that. That's why I like MAC."

See more images of the collection now.

lol...MAC definitely photoshops. Maybe she meant that MAC agreed not to photoshop her ads in order to maintain the integrity of the images?

Haha, I was wondering about that comment Rigor. I think MAC looks like they use the MOST airbrushing/photoshop, lol.

What, MAC doesn't airbrush their ads? Is she on crack? Anyhoo, I like her work, but I like Richard Phillips' (also working with MAC) a lot better.
