M·A·C Senior Artist John Stapleton demonstrates how to create a smoldering smoky eye using products from the Kelly Osbourne for M·A·C collection.

Working as Kelly Osbourne’s makeup artist has been incredible, and it all began with a lipstick. One of the first lipsticks I used on Kelly was M·A·C Pink Nouveau. The lipstick was loud, crazy, and left of center, much like the young singer.

The M·A·C Kelly Osbourne collection is perfect for all her fashion-forward fans. The smoky purples from her Bloody Brilliant Quad will be stunning on any woman. Read on to learn how to achieve the perfect smoky eye.

“Irreverent and free-spirited, the Brit Rhythm woman combines a powerful femininity with a rock ‘n roll edge.” —Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer

The Look: Embody this fragrance by complementing with Burberry beauty products—think a modern smokey eye, natural lips and fresh skin with a subtle glow, for an effortless look that has just the right amount of attitude.

The Scent: Classic and unexpected notes collide in harmony—first reaching the nose with a rush of British lavender, followed by an intoxicating orange blossom and a deep vetiver baseline.

I love pairing Talk That Talk Lipstick, a dark plum retro matte, with sparkly cocoa browns for the eyes, like the shades featured in the Her Cocoa Eyeshadow Quad.

Complete the look with these M·A·C products:
Eye Kohl in ‘Teddy’
Lip Pencil in ‘Nightmoth’

Cool in color, RiRi Woo Lipstick is a super-wearable red matte and looks incredible on everyone. Rock it with a flick of Liquidlast Liner in ‘Point Black’ on the eyes. Finish the look with a tomboy bushy brow, using Veluxe Brow Liner and Brow Set, and you’re ready to demand attention.

Channel your inner icon and dare to go dramatic with a cobalt-blue satin eye. Why not flip that matte red lip for a shine by layering RiRi Woo Lipglass? After all, one of the impressive things about Rihanna is her ability to change her look in an instant—and own it every time.

Complete the look with these M·A·C products:
Eyeshadow in ‘Electric Eel’
Eyeshadow in ‘Plumage’

Now’s your chance, shine bright.

Chantecaille’s gorgeous new Wild Horses Palette includes three eyeshadows and one blush in perfectly on-trend colors for fall—plus a world-changing bonus: a percentage of all palette proceeds will be donated to The Humane Society to support its mission to help wild horses run free in America. We spoke with Chantecaille Creative Director and spokesmodel Olivia Chantecaille to learn more about her family’s efforts to make a difference through the company.

BEAUTY BLOG: Olivia, tell us why you support this particular cause.
OLIVIA CHANTECAILLE: There’s an urgent need to help our country’s wild horses roam freely. Embodying the spirit of freedom, wild horses have graced the American landscape for centuries, reminding us of our deepest connection to the earth. Sadly, in just the past 40 years over 22 million acres of wild horse habitat has been lost in the U.S. To make room for cattle, gas and oil production, the government has been systematically placing wild herds into captivity, which costs taxpayers upwards of $78 million per year. By conserving our public land for our wild horses, we not only help save the herds, but we also ensure that the land will be preserved for future generations.

How does The Wild Horses Palette reflect the cause it supports?
The palette reflects not only the colors of the wild horses, but those of the magnificent landscape they live in. It’s a striking yet neutral palette that perfectly complements the trending colors in this fall’s fashion—warm earthy browns, rich neutrals, grounding black, camel and pops of red.

Beauty and heart: Olivia Chantecaille models The Wild Horses Palette.

This isn’t the first time you’ve created a palette inspired by a cause [last spring the company released its Save the Sharks Palette; in years past it has created palettes to benefit endangered tigers and elephants in Africa].
Yes, we have always sought to raise awareness for environmental causes that are most urgent and require immediate attention. This is an integral part of our brand and our way to give back to nature. Each season we launch a ‛cause-metics’ collection, and are particularly passionate about our commitment to the oceans and endangered species.

Of all your recent charitable efforts, which cause has held the most significance for you and your family?
It is impossible to choose one cause over another. Each one is vital in its own right, and when you look at the larger picture you realize that everything is connected. There is one unifying message that comes from all of these causes: We need to respect Nature and be aware of the negative influence we play.

Are there skincare or other makeup products that work best with the Wild Horses look?
Our new Le Stylo Ultra Slim Liquid Eyeliner and the new lash-defining Supreme Cils Mascara really highlight and complement the neutral shades of the eyeshadow palette. On lips, Persimmon Hydra Chic Lipstick is a bold tomato red with a flattering burst of orange that is the perfect modern take on a classic red lip. Complete the look with Future Skin Foundation and a spritz of our Pure Rosewater.
