The MAC Ellie Goulding collection (coming to the MAC website Dec. 14 and to stores and counters Dec. 17 – Jan. 15, 2016)
Wearing a sexy scuba outfit while rocking big blonde hair that looks like it’s being whipped back by 12 Beyoncé fans doesn’t mean you have to go OTT with your makeup.
The first time I saw the sexy scuba promo pic for the MAC Ellie Goulding collection on Instagram a while back, I thought, “OOH! LOVE! now this is makeup I would want to wear.” It looks so approachable and fresh, but there’s still some drama to it, like the black-winged liner and falsies. I think Ellie just looks really beautiful.
Then I saw the promo pics for the products and fell head over heels.
I’m not sure, but I might be in the minority when it comes to how much I love these colors, specifically the warm browns and neutral browns, but I’m sorry. I’m not 22 years old and about to rock an emerald green eyeshadow to Costco anymore.
I mean…I’ll do it on occasion, but when I think of makeup that I know I can wear over and over and over again, it’s things like this: warm browns on the eyes; beautiful bronzy cheeks with a peachy glow and juicy, glossy coral lips.

In that promo pic, Ellie looks like she’s either about to belt out a song, or make out with somebody, LOL!
MAC Ellie Goulding Powder blush Duo in I’ll Hold My Breath ($28)
MAC Ellie Goulding Halcyon Days ($44)
MAC releases so many collections, but for me, this one stands out. The brand does stuff with singers all the time, but sometimes their collaborations seem a little half-@ssed, ya know? like the Mariah Carey one? Come on… One lipstick and no special packaging? Like, that’s it? but this got the full red carpet treatment.
Lots and lots more info in the video at the top, and here are some swatches and pictures. have a look, and let me know what you think.
