Last year, girls all over the world held their breaths and waited impatiently for M.A.C Cosmetics’ new line which they worked on along with Charlotte Olympia. The collection was a great success, and no wonder – since it was inspired by pin-up style from the fifties with her signature spider’s web on, girls go crazy over it. The collection had everything you could possibly dream of for a seductive and elegant summer look. There are wonderful tinted moisturizers, classic cat-eye liners, garnet and crimson lipsticks and soft, sunny eyeshadows. It’s not just that the products look amazing and feel great on your skin, but they come in a special transparent clutch where you can add a pocket mirror too and rock that highly-desirable retro feel.

Sometimes you’ll get lucky, and discover a designer and a label you haven’t noticed before, and you’ll fall in love with their products. Keep your eyes, ears, and mind open, and always look for something new and unusual. Give new designers and new labels a chance - you never know if you’ll be the one to discover a label everyone will fall in love within a couple of seasons. If you don’t improvise, risk and experiment, you will never find the product that’s perfect for you.
